thenewmrsmax:  Hugely inappropriate. I have spoken up in that situation and told the woman to please hurry up and leave the bathroom as I choose NOT to be her background noise.

OMG, gross! Holy cow that’s unprofessional. If I ever caught an employee of mine doing that they would be in serious trouble.

thenewmrsmax:  My boss totally does this!  And I don’t think he mutes it for the flush!  It wouldn’t change a thing if he did, because I’m sure the person on the other line can hear our REALLY loud fan running in the background!  But he’s a diabetic and I think he takes pills that increase his urine output and sometimes you just can’t get a client to shut up!

thenewmrsmax:  This has happened to me before at previous jobs. One woman (she worked for a different company but we shared bathrooms within the same office building) came into the bathroom on a conference call holding a bunch of paperwork and was referencing it as she used the bathroom. I was so uncomfortable.

At first I was thinking you were totally overreacting – I mean, if a girl wants to chat to her BFF as she pees, whatever – but a conference call?! Good god!

I’ve been on conference calls and just absolutely HAD to go to the bathroom.  But I always held it until I could mute it… like, not my turn to talk for a while…  But never while I’m talking.

 That’s so gross! I actually saw my former manager come out of the stall while on the phone with a client, and she didn’t wash her hands! When I came out of the bathroom, she was handing out cookies that a client had sent us. Handing them out with her bare, unwashed hands. I wanted to vomit.

Ugh… I worked with a lady who did this. She dropped a total of 4 phones into the toilet in a matter of 6 months!!! She would go into the bathroom talking and come out talking. She also never washed her hands, and was sick quite a bit. I am guessing there is a correlation there, haha! Her boss hated that and is a germophobe like me, and she was always wiping everything and spraying Lysol.

EW, gross.  I can’t help but think of all the germs on that cellphone.

Ewww. But I think this may be worse – once I was in the very noisy public bathroom of a shopping centre and I heard the girl in the stall next to me call back an employer about a job interview! It’s one thing if you are on a call and desperate for the bathroom but to proactively call your prospective employer from the stall?! Seriously.
