The Other Stall














Traveling down the interstate and needing to use the restroom,

I stop at a rest area and headed to the restroom.

I was barely sitting down when I heard a voice from the other stall saying:


"Hi, how are you?"

I'm not the type to start a conversation in the restroom and I don't know what got into me, but I answered, somewhat embarrassed,


"Doin' just fine!"

And the other person says:


"So what are you up to?"

What kind of question is that? At that point, I'm thinking this is too bizarre so I say:


"Uhhh, I'm like you, just traveling!"

At this point I am just trying to get out as fast as I can when I hear another question.


"Can I come over?"

Ok, this question is just too weird for me but I figured I could just be polite and end the conversation. I tell them


"No...I'm a little busy right now!!!"

Then I hear the person say nervously...

"Listen, I'll have to call you back. There's an idiot in the other stall who keeps answering all my questions
