    I'm too aware of how much that stuff costs to be risky with it like that. I do think it is kinda gross. It also makes life feel really stressed to be multitasking all the time.

    Yeah, this. And because of this, the bathrooms are among the only places where we're truly safe to use them. Urinals and stalls serve as echo chambers that nullify the magnetowaves. The government's figured this out, but they're not sure what to do about it just yet--they can't exactly retrofit every bathroom in the country or ban restrooms altogether--so we're safe there for now.

    If anything, those who use their phones in the bathrooms are those whose hands I'd like to shake most, as they're the ones who are smart enough to avoid the conspiracy.

    My cellphone lives in my pocket, my purse, or on the headboard of my bed.

    I like to ignore it lots

    This happens where I work all of the time!
    I hear people answer the phone while sitting in a stall. WTF? Then they come out and don't wash either their hands or the phone, which would probably benefit from boiling at that point.

    I see it pretty regularly, juggling a beer and a cigarette in one hand and doing something else complicated at the same time.

    This has to do with people using their cell phones/ Droids/ iPhones - whatever - in public bathrooms.

    (1) Why in the hell would anyone text while pissing at a urinal? There are 3 people in my department who I will not shake hands with EVER again.

    (2) Ladies, you might be off the hook for #1 above, but you know you've heard a case or two or more of some gal' taking a whizz or dropping some kids off at the pool while gabbing with someone on thier f&*king cell phone. Dudes, don't tell me you haven't heard the same thing.

    WTF is so important that you allow it to compromise your (a) personal hygeine, and (b) dignity as a civilized being capable of conscious thought?

    Thoughts?

    Bueller?

    Am I going fucking bonkers-wacko-insane here, or is the above just plain f**king gross?

    Please advise.

    :horor:

    How is this gross? I just don't see it I mean if you're texting and pissing on a urinal this could be a problem because you might piss on yourself or the person next to you, but a toilet is pretty confined space. Texting while driving is totally stupid every time I try it I know I'm in for accident so I just stop and wait.

    Hey Bro!

    Technology, manners, and hygeine are not often all considered in decision making at once.
    Maybe they should be.
    It's just weird to me.
    For years I've been shocked when people use a public restroom (for whatever reason) and don't wash their hands as they leave.
    This just compounds an already existing problem, IMHO.

    OK, let's simplify my case.
    The last place I want to be is in a public restroom, taking a dump, and reading a sweet text message from my beautiful wife.
    There's a better place for the message to be read, like at my desk, or as I take a 15 minute walk around my company's campus.
    Again, this is my preference.

    Texting while driving = FAIL, totally agreed.
    I wish more people felt similarly.
