The Face Off: Why Are Women so Crazy in the Bathroom?

women in the bathroomIf I have one more face off with a woman in my work bathroom stall beside me I… I am not sure WHAT I will do.

Why are women so crazy in the bathroom?  When it comes to going number two, they want to do it alone so they will sit and wait for you to go, flush and leave.  And should they accidentally go they will immediately play with the toilet dispenser, flush the toilet, cough, anything and everything to hide the fact that they are going.

Don’t you know that all of us use the same tricks to cover up our waste?

The worse is the face off.  If it is my turn to go and I am faced with a challenger, I wait.  Since she is there first she should be the one that is the first to leave. Why do I have to go?  Why are you playing mind games with me?

The face off is a mental test that challenges your body.  Can you hold it?  Can you have patience to wait for her to exit?  Can you be the strong one that takes a stance? This is a challenge that I give myself and lose EVERY TIME.  And every time that I get frustrated and give up I promise myself that next time I will stand strong and win the face off.

I haven’t won a face off yet.  Go figure.
