I keep you guys in the loop as far as the public restrooms in my office building go. I realize that you may not like this but this is my narrative, so whatever.

Anyways, for this latest development I saw a dude step away from the urinal and wash his hands only moments ago. Nothing interesting there. However, he wasn’t wearing shoes. Or socks.

He’s also from South Africa. Maybe that’s how they do things in their family… 🤔

🛑 🤚 This story takes place in a public restroom. You’ve been warned…

So I was in said restroom and there was a guy in the stall. I knew this because he was talking on the phone in between gaspy grunts.

After I washed my hands and opened the door I so wanted to yell out, “HE’S TAKING A SHIT!!”

Because whoever he was talking to deserved to know this kinda thing.

I agree. This is “need to know” info for the party on the other end of that call.

tcr! tcr! · Sep 13, 2018 at 4:53 pm

Maybe I should’ve asked him how long he was gonna be in there because I gotta take a dump, too.

The guy next to me literally was just doing the same thing. Also his text message alert was ducks quaking.

Well I am in Oregon so he probably went to UO. 😉

I seriously question using phones in the john. Every time we visit Las Vegas…yup, phone in the john.

It seems to be pretty common place here in the states. And what with the new iPhone XS Max I can only assume Fortnite will be come only that much popular around the loo.

Interesting restroom chair rail

Interesting restroom chair rail

Do you think this was a piece of scrap screwed to the wall or did somebody go all Dali in here?

We’re out of paper towels so often in the work public restroom that I’ve needed to post out here on the internet. After a long internal debate I’ve also decided that I’m going to start wiping my hands on the mirror when we’re out.

The end.

Black tape just won’t do

tcr! · Nov 8, 2017 at 12:35 pm

hand soap flashing me

Shout out to the hand soap flashing me in the work restroom. Again. He does this weekly. Because that’s what you do when you’re him.

I tried to tell him that his black tape wouldn’t keep his britches up but what do I know?

PS- I make my own adventures.

More knob twists

tcr! · Oct 27, 2017 at 10:03 am

I’m in the private, single person work restroom. Somebody tries the door knob. It refuses because I’m not an animal and therefore lock the door.

Again, with the twisting. I scowl at the door. More knob twists. This time as if brute force will unlock the door. I’m annoyed now.

Three seconds pass. The knob twists yet again. I call out forcefully, angrily… “dude, I’m taking a shit.”

I don’t like talking to people in public but sometimes ya got to.

While dining out last night I happened upon this restroom. Featuring additional seating.

Maybe the knob twister above was expecting he could just come in and wait for his turn.

Companionship is losing ground. The naysayers are getting verbal and providing examples.

There’s a gentleman we’ll call Gary

tcr! · Oct 17, 2017 at 2:04 pm

Phone on the commode

So we all know that our phones are a huge part of our lives. We take them pretty much every where. They say that they’re generally the first thing we look at in the morning and the last thing we look at before going to sleep.

However, I’ve came across a situation where another’s phone usage has me bepuzzled and I wanted to get the worldly consensus. Yes, I realize that virtually all people will be looking at this post on their phones, and yes, that may skew the results but I acknowledge this and will persist.

There’s a gentleman we’ll call Gary. I doubt if the gentleman is actually named Gary but he very well could be. If so, it’s purely coincidental. Also, this man is not your friend or relative named Gary. No, I don’t know your uncle Gary or your boss Gary. Finally, I don’t have any friends that go by Gary. Which is why I chose this name. Well, I actually chose it because after Bruce Wayne retired along came a Batman named Gary[1] of all things. I was rather disappointed that the writers chose “Gary” because it does not compare to the power that comes from saying an almighty name such as “Bruce.” Also, if your name is Gary I’m sorry but you cannot be Batman.

Anyways, back to the man I have aliased Gary. I’ll get right to it…

Gary was watching a movie trailer in the public restroom at work a few moments ago. He was hidden within the stall but his phone did indeed bellow with the cellos and sing with the strings and pound with the pianos, and all in such a way that I knew whatever action-packed movie Gary was previewing was gonna be good. I felt a smidge frantic because I hadn’t anything but the movie music to go on. How in the world would I find this movie in Fandango later? Shazam was obviously out of the question.

But once the audible excitement of whatever film Gary was trailering had worn off, I felt disheartened, disenfranchised, disengaged, dis and more dis. Almost like I’d shared a moment with Gary that, not only I shouldn’t have, but also that I didn’t really want to. Sure, I get sucked into movie magic as much as the next Doug…but once I was washing my hands firmly back in reality, I knew beyond a doubt that I don’t want to have any kind of moments with Gary in a public restroom. Ever again.

With public restrooms I think people should get in and get out. And more importantly: let strangers get in and out as well. If you’re going to watch the YouTubes or whatever at least keep your phone on silent so you don’t suck others in. Better still, don’t make any sounds at all. Don’t grunt, gasp, or sigh. If possible, hold your breathe. Remain mysterious. Elusive. Don’t give the other guests any clues as to who you are or what you’re doing. You could very well be Bruce Wayne or Selina Kyle. Use your anonymity to your advantage!

Okay, so I’m not like everybody. I don’t like making noises or chit-chatting with strangers while visiting the communal washrooms. If you do, that’s fine. I won’t judge. To each their own. You got the right to do your business.

So my question…

Since Gary was watching and listening to his phone in the restroom, publicly filling the airwaves with theatrical music for all, would it have been appropriate for me to say, “Sounds pretty good, what movie is that?”

  1. Editor’s note: there wasn’t a Batman named Gary. Terry was his name. I’ve gone too far to change it now.

This is all great, but my favourite part is that after you’ve said Gary 1000 times it turns out Batman’s name was actually Terry.

I say you could have asked, BUT there’s a good chance it would have led him to engage you in conversation, which you probably wouldn’t enjoy.

tcr! tcr! · Oct 18, 2017 at 3:09 pm

I know! I spent like an hour yesterday searching for a Batman named “Gary” on Wikipedia.

Subconsciously I was probably thinking that he looked like a Gary though. Manly type that does what he wants. When he wants. Most likely a car salesman.

“You’re going to buy this car or else I’ll throw you in the trunk and then you’ll realize how dumb you are, laying in a trunk, with no car, like a moron.”

In related news… I was practicing reading my podcast last night at the dinner table while Maggie was doing her homework. Every time I said “Gary” her eyes would roll. There came a point when all parties agreed I should read quietly to myself.

keamoose keamoose · Oct 18, 2017 at 3:24 pm

Funny, the only Gary I know is a tall, thin, 60-ish civil engineer with a ponytail who bikes to work and runs marathons. I also had a high school physics teacher with a small mustache and elbow patches named Geary (pronounced Gary). He erased the chalkboard row by row, walking all the way across like a dot matrix printer. So I guess, we have very different images of “Gary-ism”.

I’m concerned about Maggie having eyestrain after all those Gary’s. Did she eventually have to lay down with a cool wet washcloth over her eyes?

keamoose keamoose · Oct 18, 2017 at 3:26 pm

BTW, “searching for a Batman named Gary” would make an excellent tagline for SOMETHING.

tcr! tcr! · Oct 19, 2017 at 7:09 am

“Searching for a Batman named Gary” — I think it’d also make an excellent personal ad on craigslist.org.

keamoose keamoose · Oct 19, 2017 at 10:41 am

Yes, it would, though I don’t know why a millionaire crimefighter would reply to an ad on Craigslist. You’d likely get a lot more replies from guys sitting in their parents’ basements wearing plastic capes than from genuine Batmen. Batmans?

tcr! tcr! · Oct 20, 2017 at 12:17 pm

I kinda like “batmen” as it gives them a sense of camaraderie although “batmans” sounds more inline with the DC universe.

keamoose keamoose · Oct 20, 2017 at 12:33 pm

I couldn’t quite put my finger on why I preferred “batmen” over “batmans”, but I think that’s it.

I’ve also been advised by tism that “batsman” is right out, as it’s a cricket term… the plural of which is “batsmen”. I’m unreasonably annoyed by “batsmen”; it’s like some kind of double plural. Like there should be at least 3 or 4 of them.

tcr! tcr! · Oct 21, 2017 at 9:04 am

There should definitely be more than two batsmen and definitely more than four batsmens.

keamoose keamoose · Oct 21, 2017 at 10:40 am

Batsmens! 🤣
