Bathroom Humor (an episode in which I channel Seinfeld)
Now I'm not really into bathroom humor. I don't like to talk about the bathroom and I like talking in the bathroom even less...
So I went to the bathroom at work today and put a ring I was wearing in the pocket of my blazer. I made some wrong move though because it flew out of pocket onto the floor...in the stall next to me.
I could see that it was right next to another woman's foot.
I froze for a few seconds. My instinct to grab it seemed wrong because I know I wouldn't react kindly to a seeing hand appearing from the next stall. And as I said, I don't want to talk in the bathroom either. And it didn't seem smart to try to wait until I exited my stall and she exited hers.
Then I told myself snap out of it. This wasn't an episode of Seinfeld. I spoke and we both laughed and laughed. She pushed the ring my way so I could pick it up.
And when it was all over, I saw that it was the big boss, who fortunately has a sense of humor.
