turns and toilets

two unrelated thoughts [you were worried, i know]:

when you are at a stoplight and you get a green arrow, PAY ATTENTION AND GO. the mere existence of the green arrow should imply, Hey! This intersection and traffic flow are busy enough to necessitate a green arrow! I should take advantage of it! trust me, the twelve cars behind you trying to get to work will thank you. instead of swearing at you.

when either you or i are in a bathroom stall at work, really, don't strike up a conversation with me. i find it weird.

I KNOW! It's especially disjointing to see your *supervisor* in the bathroom.

And am I the only one in the world who has a bizarre, unexplainable urge to hide in the stall until whoever else is in there leaves?

and while we're on the topic of office bathrooms, for a couple of months there were these two ladies (late thirties?) who were ALWAYS hanging out in the bathroom at exactly 3:34pm every day. (it was then I realized how internally clocked I am) and they had these loud, shouting conversations in mandarin as if they were hanging out at their own home. I felt like I was invading their space.

they weren't students, and they weren't staff. they just didn't fit my ctegories. it was a surreal experience, daily.

it would be extremely disjointing to see my supervisor in the bathroom. and, NO, you are most certainly not alone... i very much miss the private bathroom of my old workplace. although when the other person[s] have the same tendency, the situation turns into The Worst Game Ever.

they were probably chattering about how That One Girl always walks into the bathroom at 3:34pm everyday...

I agree whole-heartedly. In fact, I think all people in a turn lane have a MORAL IMPERATIVE to get through the light as quickly as possible in order to allow the most people through.

The toilet thing just goes without saying. Unless we're the very best of friends, just nod and smile at me and do your thing. For the love of all that's holy, don't make me speak to you through the horrible noises and smells.
