More than half of mobile workers use their smartphone in the restroom
CareerBuilder's Rosemary Haefner says, "The lines between work and [home] life can be very blurry these days — 17 percent of workers said they feel like their work day never ends because of technology connecting them to the office. To reduce burnout and avoid potentially risky behavior, workers should allot technology-free time when away from work." Sounds like good advice, but first, we just need to check our email.

If I am ever in a public restroom and some disgusting douche bag is talking on his cell phone, I repeatedly flush the toilet, over and over again... I know it is wasting water, but talking in the bathroom is the stupidest thing. Sometimes I want to grab the phone off the person's shoulder and throw it in the urinal while they pee.... I actually saw a guy's phone slide off his shoulder right into his stream once. It was hilarious! I replied, "Maybe now you won't talk on your phone while in a public bathroom." Talking on the phone in your own bathroom in the privacy of your own house is one thing... don't do it in public assholes.

Txt dumping is fine, I enjoy that on occasion. Talking is rude, but it doesn't bother me like it does Kiltlifter. I guess I just expect the rudeness, but they would murder a person in Japan for that, and no court there would convict them!

How is talking on the phone in a public restroom rude? Sometimes that's the perfect place to talk. Besides, who is it bothering, do you need perfect silence to concentrate on taking a crap or draining the snake?

Some people, not me, consider any intrusion on their personage as rude. In a environment where maintaining the illusion of privacy as tenuous as a public bathroom, some consider talking as full scale assault on their privacy. As I recall from bootcamp, the only time we had out from under the watchfull eye of the Drill Instructors was in the head. 12 tiolets arranged aroud a room, no stalls, and you had to walk through it to get the showers, so there was constant traffic through it for that one hour a day we had to ourselves. We got real comfortable with crapy/talky.
