On the Internet at Work 3

"I don't know, and neither care nor have the energy to go look it up."

I'm trying out eye excercises for my near-sightedness (or myopia). It involves 'palming', covering your eyes and relaxing while imagining a pleasant situation for a few minutes and taking a five-minute break every hour or two to stare at a distant object (about 15 feet. Or meters. God damn the imperial system and the US).

"You can't reason someone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into."

Regarding a prior post, I was faced with this situation today. I work in a building with four floors, meaning four restrooms. I had to do my business, so I went up to the second-floor bathroom, the one most likely to be empty.

Not empty. Now, personally, I don't like crapping with someone in the bathroom, so I got out of there and headed to the fourth floor. Empty. I prepped the middle stall's toilet and sat myself down to do my business. It wasn't more than a few moments when someone else entered the next stall to my right. I heard the toilet seat go down and a zipper unzip.

I then heard a sound that can only be described with a word like 'explosive'. I immediately remembered my previous entry on here and had to stifle my laughter. Obviously, I wasn't going to be able to finish my business here, so I hurriedly got out of there as fast as I could, amidst the continued 'explosions'.

Maybe the guy that wrote that lives in Hawaii, too.
