Either that, or an e-mail junkie! Now that is just plain sad. Maybe she's reading a book online?

Too bad there isn't a slide/fold out tray table like on an airplane... :D

Now you're on to something Jim. Just think, when an employee takes that 20 minute bathroom break he/she can continue to work with no lost time for the company. Heck, let's save even more time, instead of cubicles just make everyone work from stalls. Saves all that time walking to and from the bathroom. :rolleyes:

I hope no administrator from my company sees this comment. They will come out with a "Lean" project offering to pay everyone to install one in the home bathrooms. I ain't gonna do it. I don't answer my cell phone in that little room either. It ain't no telephone booth!:rolleyes:

LOL . . .
Ken you reminded me of something I haven't thought of in years. I worked as a medical transcriptionist at one point for a group of 12 physicians. One of the docs was notorious for dictating his office notes while he was having his "morning constitutional". Some days it wasn't so bad, but other days . . . well, let's just say the sound effects were pretty disgusting. For some reason I guess he thought his recorder only picked up the sound of his voice. Well, one day it was particularly bad, so I transcribed his office notes complete with sound effects (spelled to the best of my ability). :eek: He never dictated from the bathroom again. :D

Come on you guys... Give the lady a break. She's probably downloading the operating manual. They are missing from most public facilities because people steal them and take them home to replace the ones they lost. Just like they used to steal the phone books from public pay phones (remember those?).

Good one, Belinda.

Back to the original, today, you really don't need the computer if you're carrying a smart phone. You can call, email, SMS and surf to your hearts content while you're, umm...out of your office.

I never could understand it when people say that some of their best thinking happens in there...does it really take THAT much thought? ;)

I always flush the toilet several times when I hear someone talking on a cell phone in the bathroom at work.

Sometimes the conversation stops and you can tell that the other person asked "Are you in the bathroom?" Sometimes the conversation doesn't even pause.

Belinda - I love your tag line about the angel and the strip club. Unfortunately I work somewhere that would not find it amusing . . .

Cheers

Jim

Thanks Jim! Funny, folks either love my tag lines, or are highly offended. There doesn't seem to be a happy medium between the two. You wouldn't believe the number of women offended by the "mad cow" line, which I personally think is hysterical. I once worked in a business with 59 other women and I mean really, there is nothing like working with a herd of mad cows!:rolleyes: This may come across as a sexist but it is simply the truth.

Yeah, not like the good old days when you could just use a page from Sears and Roebuck catalog. :p

My take is she isn't working, but trying to win an E-Bay auction for a Coach handbag. ;)

Some of the restrooms in the math and engineering bldgs where I went to school had fold down trays in the stalls. I have no idea what anyone would use them for, those were pre-laptop days.

Well, you had to put your slide rule somewhere... :D ...or your tuna on white... :o

No it doesn't take any thought. That's why the time thinking there was so productive. Nobody to interrupt you....no telephone...and in my case...I don't answer the cellphone either!:D

No, I actually know the answer to this one.

She's e-mailing her husband, asking when the stairs are going to be done. :rolleyes:






I kid. LOML is going to devote her weekend to helping me with the stairs. I've gotten to the point where I can't do another thing without a helper.

This was after slide rules, HP calculators were the big thing.
