Sandy Padula and Norm Padula, JD, GRI - I don't know if it is too personal. Anyone who does might not think so.  I had someone ask me the other day if I was in the Latrine.  I could not believe it.  I said, no. I would never answer my phone while in or using a facility. 

It might be Cindy Davis yet I know many people who have. Personally, I'd prefer those folks not answer my call if they are otherwise occupied.

A definite Craptacular feature question!

Did a friend of Dick Greenberg request you dig deep and delve into this issue?

No I do not. I think most people can tell if you are in the bathroom/restroom/toilet and talking on the phone. I did one time while talking with my sister...we both laughed at this .

Kathleen, What an interesting question. Of course no! But I am always surprised when I hear someone in a conversation while in a public rest room.

All the best to you!  Jan
