I have to kvetch about something. I’ve been spending a lot of time in airports lately. That’s all fine, I don’t mind – I actually like traveling.
But here’s the thing. WHAT is the deal with people thinking that the public bathrooms in airports are their own private phone booths? Seriously. I’m not talking about those ‘Hey honey, I can’t talk now, I’m in the restroom’ type conversations- I’m talking about the full-fledged-whole-nine-yards-every-damn-detail conversations being carried out while one participant is in the bathroom doing their business.
I am being 100% serious about this. On a recent trip I visited the facilities before I got on my flight and, I kid you not, in the next stall over a woman was going a recommendation over the phone for a friend/colleague/former employee of hers that was applying for a new job. This is not the first time that I have witnessed such behavior recently either.
I find this trend disturbing on so many levels, I can barely elaborate further. I don’t suppose this is going on in the men’s room as well? Actually, I don’t even want to know.
