Orange You Glad I Didn't Say Banana

Today someone cleaned their cubicle with a Corporate Express (Staples) aerosol cleaning spray. It initally smelled like oranges, and gradually the olfactory cloud spoiled.

What I'm trying to say is: it literally smelled like vomit at work today.

Worse guy in the adjacent bathroom stall: sighing loudly, or talking on his phone?

Sighing. Definitely sighing. Any conversation would be better than that, except of course, one that involved sighing. But that'd at least be sighing with a cause.

Sighing also wins my vote. If you're sighing aloud in a men's bathroom stall, I really don't want to think about how sad your life must be.

The 'sigh'er is trying to initiate conversation, and the very last thing I want to do while draining my root is hear some bitter bastard tell me about how bad he Thinks his life is.

Also, the phone-dependant-urinator will likely get piss on his hand and/or zipper flap. Justice served.

I don't think sighing makes him worse, just more pathetic. Honestly, I'd probably laugh out loud if I heard someone sigh loudly in a stall. I mean, how disappointing do your bowel movements have to be to elicit a sigh?
I'll bet if you looked on the wall of that stall you would find this poem written with his tears:
Here I sit,
So broken-hearted.
Tried to shit,
But only farted.

That's definitely the first time I laughed at that joke.
