Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, like most of your readers, I come here for news about toilets, which you cover better than anybody else. I was wondering, are women’s bathroom habits any different from men’s, apart from the obvious?
It turns out the most commonly dropped item is the cell phone, which gives me an idea for a million dollar app – a smart phone that automatically switches to Speaker Mode when submerged.
The survey found on average an item has to cost at least $75 before a woman will fish it out of the toilet. Fully 16 percent said that NO item was worth going after in the toilet. My own guess is, when that Xanax bottle drops, you’re going to see some fast splashing.
Blog Guy, last year you wrote about a business that was putting timers in their toilets, so that the lights would turn off after 10 minutes, even if the employees weren’t finished.
I wondered if anybody else is experimenting with ways to get people to spend less time in the bathroom?
Great news. We have another one of those serious etiquette columns that appear to be aimed at folks who were raised by neanderthals. Early neanderthals, not the more evolved ones.
This particular column tells you how to behave if you are a house guest. If you still need to be told this stuff, then good luck ever getting invited anyplace.
Lamar, can I talk to you over here for a minute?
Boy, they’re really knocking back the brews. They’ve been drinking for three hours solid and going through keg after keg. But it’s worth it to keep customers happy.
Lamar, where the heck are you? I told you to meet me at the Motor Show.
I’m here, Boss. I’ll find you in a few minutes. I stopped in the men’s room by the Renault display.
Really? I just went by there and I didn’t see a men’s room.
I’m not surprised, Boss, it turns out in Switzerland they just put the stalls right out in the open. Those crazy Swiss, huh?
Dammit Lamar, you’re hopeless!
What is it this time, Boss?
We’re supposed to be the best event planners in the area, and this is our biggest job yet, doing the 2011 convention for the International Stilts Association.
We’ve got 12,000 people walking around on 10-foot stilts, and what did you come up with for toilet facilities?
