A few weeks ago I was taking a drunk dial from a good friend of mine (no names), when she suddenly apologized for flushing. "Whoa," I said. "Flushing?"
"Yeah, I'm in the restroom at the bar."
"No. No ... Nooooooo!!!"
Needless to say, I was shocked. Call me a prude, but I always thought one's time in the restroom was private time, for private things. It's a time of quietude, reflection, and not talking on the effing cell phone. But am I in the minority on this?
During the next few days, I inquired among some friends if calling from the can is acceptable. So far, most of the men say no and the women say yes. Not only that, but many of the women say that they too make calls from the toilet -- both at home and while out in public! These preliminary findings -- falling so closely along the gender lines -- have shocked me. I feel like I've discovered a secret civilization living right out in the open: Savage women who make cell phone calls from the restroom.
So in the interest of modern anthropology, Rocket Fever is opening a new front in the battle of the sexes. I ask you: Is calling from the can OK? Please note that there are two polls: Ladies and Gentlemen.
