I spend a great deal of time informing you of proper etiquette rules.   Occasionally, I point out why these rules are necessary.  Rarely, do I hypothesize about what could happen if etiquette is not followed.

Today I would like to share I joke I recently heard with you.  Even though the intention of this joke is to make people laugh, it’s not far from the truth.  Perhaps it has actually happened to you.

Enjoy, learn, and  please help keep our etiquette standards from going down the toilet by turning cell phones off in public restrooms.

There’s an idiot in the other stall who keeps answering all my questions!
