THE OFFICE BATHROOM ENCOUNTER – BUBBLE GUM/SKIRT STORY
Skirt had rolled down her dress shirt from the shoulder down, she hoped no one would enter the bathroom at this time! The tendencies were low though, it was a Saturday and she only came to pick up a file – no one else was expected to be here.
She hated communal bathrooms! She never really could figure why the management thought it was a good idea for all them – male and female to share a bathroom. What she hated more right now however, was her bra that chose this time to sever. Thank God she had an office pin to hold it in place till she got home.
Skirt had just put the errant strap back across her shoulder when she heard, “nice lightning bolts.” She jumped and turned to find Cufflinks behind her. “Sorry I didn’t think anyone would be in here, I should have knocked.”
“It’s alright. I was just leaving.” Skirt was done buttoning her shirt. Cufflinks exited the bathroom to let her finish.
She briefly looked at her face in the mirror as she washed her hands, it was a crimson red. She stepped out and couldn’t look Cufflinks in the face, she only muttered a “see you on Monday.”
Out in the car park, she dialed Bubble Gum’s number… “Hey, yeah… I’m on my way. What are lightning bolts..?”
THE OFFICE BATHROOM ENCOUNTER – RED TIE/BLUE TIE STORY
Blue Tie would rather be home playing video games – his weekends were sacred and they were for rest; but on rare occasions like this, there’d been need for him to spend his precious Saturday in the office.
He’d downed his third can of Monster Energy drink, and he was now thinking of dashing to the mall to get a quick meal. Blue Tie got out of his chair and that was when he paid his bladder some attention… “bathroom first, then!” He said to himself.
He was whistling to himself and typing on his phone when he entered the office bathroom; he wasn’t aware someone else was in there until he heard a scream.
It was Sleeves, and she looked like she was ready to throw a fit. “Are you familiar with the art of knocking?”
“I’m sorry… I didn’t know anyone was in here…”
“Please get out.” Sleeves spat at Blue Tie.
Blue Tie took one look at the scenario before him again. Sleeves had one of those fat-burning creams on the wash-hand basin, and she’d pulled her off-shoulder top down to reveal her flabby armpit. There was folds and folds of flesh up in there.
He backed away gently, refusing to meet Sleeves’ angry glare.
That was nasty, he thought to himself. One thing was sure now – he no longer would be having a burger; if he put anything creamy or related to fat in his mouth right now, he might throw up.
