press "end call" ...just for a minute

While I'm changing in the locker room, a girl walks in on her phone. "Blah, blah blah. Jenny called you? Did you tell her we were interested?" Then she proceeds into a bathroom stall, still talking. The other women and I are all wondering WTF is up with this phone girl. It's very quiet. Then Phone Girl begins whispering. "I'm kind of in the bathroom at the gym, and everyone can hear me."

I don't know if she meant that everyone could hear her conversation, or could hear her peeing. Because it was both. I think the person on the other end of the line could hear both as well. I'm just saying, there's a time and a place...

I once entered a public restroom to hear a woman conversing on the cell phone and she was NOT peeing, if you know what I mean.

I don't know if I believe that cell phones are necessarily the ruination of society as we know it, but realizing that your life and issues aren't so important that you need to discuss them openly while pooping in front of strangers might be a life lesson at least a few of us need to learn.

The only benefit of my hole in the wall gym is that there is no cell phone reception there. When it was a nice, above ground facility, people yammered away on the phone all the time while working out. I would not want to touch that thing later, with all the head sweat dripping on it and all.
