Prompt taken from Writers Digest
You head into the bathroom at work, walk into a stall and close the door. Moments later, as you leave the stall, you notice two people standing there and there’s one major problem: They are of the opposite sex. On the spot, you make up an excuse as to why you are in their bathroom.
I instantly froze in place. I didn’t know what to say or do. What could I say? What could I do? I looked down at myself. I was still wearing my black slacks and light blue button down shirt with a nice tie. Nervously, I looked back at the stall. Then it came to me and with confidence I turned back around.
“Someone called my desk and said the toilets flush backwards in this bathroom. I had to see it for myself.” I chuckled as I walked out of the bathroom.
Who could blame me for being curious and having the maturity of a child. I handled that like a boss.
I walked back to my desk where I proceeded to get back to work. It didn’t take long for my phone to start ringing. When I looked down at the caller ID it was my boss’s name.
“Johnson! I heard you were in the woman’s tenth floor restroom. Is it true the toilets flush backwards there?”
I covered the phone receiver and laughed evilly. “Yes sir they do. I have never seen anything like it before.”
HR is going to hate me… It was worth it.
