People that don’t take their phone when they have a duece in the bathroom, how are you passing time in there? Reading Shampoo bottles like we did in the 80s?

  1. I’m in and out in fewer than 3 minutes. That includes unzipping and undoing my belt, wiping, washing my hands for 20-30ish seconds, and zipping up and redoing my belt.

    What are you guys doing in there what you need a phone for? The couple minutes of peace is what I need, haha.

  2. Don’t have a phone. I’m just trying to focus on the squeeze so I can get out of there in a timely manner.

    Or if I know it’s going to be a lengthy visit beforehand I’ll take my switch.

  3. Oh, I know this one!

    In the late 80s, I started working in radio. (kids, ask you parents. Or grandparents).

    I worked mostly at Top 40 radio stations back in the late 80s and early 90s, and back then if you were a DJ, you had to start the next song manually. Top 40 songs are between 3 and 4 minutes long, so every 3 to 4 minutes you had to be standing there at the control board to hit the button. If you didn’t, the radio station would go off the air, and you’d be fired.

    You may have already figured out the problem.

    If “nature called” during your shift, you had to get to the nearest bathroom, do your business, clean up, and get back into the studio to hit that button…and you had 3 1/2 minutes to do it.

    The rock DJs could put on an 8 minute prog rock track and take their time, but us guys in Top 40? You had to drop a deuce and be back before [Sly Fox – Let’s Go All the Way](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-tYprm1WRo) faded out.

    To this day, it takes me 3 minutes and 30 seconds tops to drop a deuce.

    p.s. the best radio stations had a bathroom right next to the studio. Because of course.

  4. Dude, was literally just talking to my kids how, before smart phones, when stationed in Korea, I learned to read Korean from reading this elementary school stuff on the shitter. Although I did not understand and definitely not fluent, but could freak out Koreans because I could sit there and read a menu/signs/anything but had no idea what I was reading. Phones got smart but we’ve gotten dumb. Is it due to not reading on the shitter? 🤔 Lulz
