I’ve just been for that first satisfying bowel movement of the day. The one that usurps all others.
It was great.
But, unlike those I enjoy at weekends, this one was at the office.
A downside to curling out a fresh biscuit at work is that you’re not always the only baker in the bakery. This visit was one of those times.
Now, a story like this isn’t unusual under normal circumstances, but this was far from normal. As I entered the toilets [restroom/bathroom] I could hear that the occupant of the far cubicle [stall] was talking to someone. He was on the phone.
I took the first cubicle because, well, no-one likes to poo within a foot of another person. I don’t care if there’s a layer of wood between me and him; if I can see the shadow of his feet, I’m too close.
The toilets at work don’t have piped in music, nor are they located next to an airport runway so it was deathly quiet in there and therefore I could hear every word he was saying.
“Yes, I heard you”
“Well, you hurt my feelings”
“Yes I know”
There was a pause.
“I love you”
His call must have ended at that point because he then proceeded to wipe his arse.
I finished my performance, flushed and then spent an unnecessarily long time washing and drying my hands.
Well, it could be because I believe in good personal hygiene, or it could be because I wanted to see if this guy had the bollocks to come out of his cubicle and reveal himself.
I wouldn’t have either.
So, to respect his privacy and integrity, I left.
Then, out of respect for the guy, I didn’t hang around in the kitchen waiting to see who emerged. I didn’t think it was right to make myself a coffee really slowly so I could check out if it was someone I knew (who may read my blog and somehow take this invasion of privacy personally).
After a few minutes he emerged. Thankfully I didn’t know him.
It was just one of our security team; a massive bastard built like a brick shithouse.
This could be my last post.
