today’s WTF moment brought to you by a random bathroom at the university of utah
November 18, 2008
I had a meeting with a potential customer up at the University of Utah yesterday. My 2 colleagues and I were a tich early, and there were only two chairs in the small waiting area, so I asked the receptionist if there was a restroom nearby.
(Now, I don’t want you getting the impression that I go to the bathroom when I’m bored, or just happen to have a minute. No, I go to the bathroom when I have to pee. Or poo. There, I said it. When do YOU go?)
Turns out there WAS a restroom nearby, just down the hall and around the corner.
Just an example of what we in the business (of using restrooms) call a “one-hole” or a “lockable.” You know. One you use by yourself, no fellow travelers. At least none without your permission.
Anyway. Here it is:
Can you see where I’m going with this? Please tell me you do.
What the HELL is that chair for?
I mean, I have few ideas.
Like, maybe you have a child with you, and you need somewhere for the child to sit. Or for YOU to sit. Maybe. But this is a professional building in the technology area of a University. This happens a lot?
Or. Or maybe you have just taken a laxative, and you’re waiting for it to kick in, but you don’t want to wait in the hall, because someone might be occupying the bathroom when it DOES kick in, and you don’t want to sit on the toilet while you wait because you might get a hemorrhoid. In which case, go the hell home.
But seriously. What?
