Riddle me this Batman

What is it about urinating in a public restroom that motivates some people to whistle? Do they expect the rest of us to join in?

He was whistling the William Tell Overture by the way. Points for multitasking I guess.

Peace,

Wander

In the women's room you have people holding long, complicated conversations on their cellphones whilst attending to their needs in the stalls.

I'd rather have the whistling.

In the La Guardia airport there was some guy in a stall having phone sex with his girlfriend long distance. I kid you not.

Was he an elected official or police officer? :D

Notice that this comment is after the last one... ugh!

Hard to tell but he seemed to be on the winning end of the convo. I think everyone else in there was either laughing their heads off or embarrassed for him.

Whistling always seems like a sort of territorial declaration. Maybe it's like a "virtual" privacy sphere?

I'd say it was nerves but it sounded pretty confident.

"Points for multitasking [in the bathroom]..."

The things you hear in the bathroom.

It's like whistling in the dark - "Oh, I'm doing this thing which I don't want anyone to know about, even though we all do it" - I think it's very similar to what a lot of women do: talk during that process.

I've had co-workers try to talk to me in the restroom. I always find that the most uncomfortable thing. Restroom conversations should be kept to polite nods.

I sometimes think it SHOULD be like a game show - "how many things can you do while you're in the restroom?" But it's just too weird. What kind of prizes do you give out for that? Although I have learned many interesting things in a) bar restrooms, b) public park/beach restrooms and c) airport restrooms.

I was going to tell you that everytime I'm in a public ladies room, someone is usually doing their business in the stall next to me while on a cell. Someone already did though, but I can add that one time this woman was on her cell in there and she started whispering when I came in. Probably not wanting anyone to know she was on her cell. I made sure I flushed 3 times LOL it echoed. I'm sure the person on the other end asked her where she was.
