Need a good laugh?!
I have been hesitating blogging about this story...but I know that if I told the story to my old boss Erin she would tell me to blog about it. So if no one else thinks this is funny, Erin--this is for you!
The office where I work only has ONE bathroom. Now that isn't one woman's bathroom, that's just A single bathroom to share. Sometimes this can get kind of interesting, especially since the guy to girl ratio isn't even at all--the guys out number us by a lot. And the office has recently got a lot fuller so there are about 15 guys and 4 of us girls which for having only one bathroom, it stays pretty busy.
Okay, now that I have set the grand story up for those of you who don't know what the situation is, imagine now that it is the first day for 4 new sales guys. I had been running around all day, helping with paperwork, getting them on their computers, and doing all my Monday morning reports, etc. on top of that. I walk down the aisle to head into the bathroom and notice the door is closed. Which is common because a few guys sit near the bathroom and prefer to keep the door closed all the time due to the...um...stink problem. I do a little tap on the door and begin to twist the doorknob and swing the door wide open to find one of the new guys YELLING like a girl occupying the toilet. Oh yeah. Totally walked in on him. It was so BAD! I slam the door horrified that I have just walked in on the new guy and all of the sales guys start to laugh and tease me. I'm sure my face was bright red. I didn't even know what to say. Eventually when the new guy comes out of the bathroom one of the guys says to him, "Don't mind Becki. She does that to everyone. It's part of the Prosper hazing..." WOW. The whole rest of the week all of the guys teased me about it. One of them kept on sending me e-mails through out the day saying, "Remember when you peeked on the new guy?" Needless to say, I think it's time Prosper got separate bathrooms. Maybe I should share this story as evidence to get a second bathroom...and quick!
