Bathroom Coaching

Yesterday, I was in the bathroom at work. A couple seconds into, well, you know, I started hearing voices. This was initially very disconcerting until I discovered that they were actually quite encouraging though somewhat pressed for time.

Voices: Five! Four! Three! Two! One!
Inner Monologue: Wow, I didn't know they put a time limit on peeing around here. That's a commitment to productivity right there.

A few seconds later...

Voices: Go! That's right! You're doing great! Keep it up! That's it, you've got it.
IM: And they're so supportive. I mean, it's weird but encouraging.

Then I found out the real story. Our particular section of our office building is located directly under the building's fitness center. Workers gather throughout the day for the various classes they teach and, apparently, sound carries rather well through the gym and bathrooms. I'm sure they're all very supportive people but, frankly, I was a little relieved (ha) when I discovered it wasn't aimed at me.

This is so bizarre...I was literally coming here to your website just now to tell you the following: "I think I'll miss the bathroom stories most of all."

...and you had a bathroom story. Seriously, this is very strange.

Thank you for the bathroom story.

At least the bathroom stories are continuing at the new job :-)

As soon as I read "Yesterday, I was in the bathroom at work", I knew this job is going to be great!

LOL! I wonder if the sound travels in both directions!

I commented on this yesterday morning, and my comment was pending approval. Did it not make it through? :-(

I am sure this is TMI but I totally count when I pee.

I'm so glad your bathroom magic has transferred jobs as well.
