Awkward situation

#2: having to go pee when you are on the phone with a love interest

do you hold it?
what if you can't? do you let it out slowly? or is fast better?
do you try and hold your hand over the phone so they can't hear?
do you flush and run out of the bathroom quick? maybe just save the flush for later?

or do you just say "what's the big deal?" and own it. i mean, we all pee don't we?

Hold for as long as possible. Then, if you go, hold your hand over the mouth piece. Flush later. Works every time!

i agree with michi!

i was chatting with my boyfriend about a week ago when i heard a flush in the background. i immediately said "DID YOU JUST GO TO THE BATHROOM?!!!"

sometimes ignorance is bliss.

Life is too short not to talk on the phone while you're doing your business. Multi-tasking is a beautiful thing.

PS I'm married, so I guess that comment doesn't really count.

do what you gotta do whenever you gotta do it. don't worry about waiting as long as possible, just go.
don't flush.

Related question: you're on the can in a public bathroom. Person in the next stall takes a call on their cell phone. Do you flush when your done? Do you try to rip the loudest fart you can manage? Do you collude with them to conceal the fact that the echo-y voice is just a 'bad connection'? Do you say loudly enough for the person on the phone to hear "Hey, friend... you got any paper over there?" What would Emily Post say?

Just go if you got to. No flush.
For SingleDad: totally do whatever so the person talking to the guy in the stall next to you knows not only is the guy in the toilet, but in a Public toilet. No colluding.

That this question even comes up is a bit odd, to my thinking. If the cell phone rings when I'm in the bathroom, I don't answer it to begin with, and I certainly wouldn't call someone until I was out of there!

b-w...this is referring to situations when you are on the phone, in the MIDDLE of a call, and you have to go to the bathroom really bad - but the phone call is just NOT ending...
I would never MAKE a call while in the bathroom or answer one :)

OWN IT.

yes, i'm still single.

Most cell phones now have a mute button. I simply ask a question with a lengthy response and while they are answering: mute the call, do the deed, flush the toilet, use hand sanitizer (instead of running water - its faster), leave the bathroom and unmute the call.

It works every time. Just ask Dodi how many times she caught me on the phone peeing... zero.

Thanks for the clarification. I guess I just can't relate....
