    Default Bathroom Etiquette

    Okay, I have a hypothetical question. Remember, this is hypothetical and did NOT just happen 2 minutes ago.

    If you're washing your hands and about to leave the bathroom and sneeze.......and the guy in the stall who sounds like he's dropping a baby right at that moment says "Bless You"......do you 1) Say thanks or 2) Stand there awkwardly and terrified for 5 seconds and then run out of the bathroom before he might recognize your shoes?
    Narf!

    Learn to hold your damn sneezes and avoid any future occurrences of the problem.

    I can normally! But the auto air freshener went off right over my head and forced a sneeze out.

    Uh, this happened to my friend I mean.

    Pinching off a sneeze can lead to ear damage and it *could* cause a brain aneurysm.

    "Suppressing a sneeze can be harmful, particularly to your ears...
    Studies have found that the air expelled during a sneeze travels at an
    amazing 100 miles per hour, and spews out up to 5,000 droplets, which
    may be propelled up to 12 feet in a single sneeze.... By clamping your
    mouth closed an pinching your nose shut, you force the "sneeze" into
    the eustachian tube (which connects the back of the throat to the
    middle ear) and then to your eardrum. Sneeze strong enough, and you
    could rupture an eardrum, causing acute pain, infection, bleeding, and
    even hearing loss."

    I thought this was a hypothetical.

    "Thanks man. Sounds like you're nuking' a small village in there."

    is the answer.

    This thread reminds me of that story someone posted about the bathroom incident that happened at Ryan's steakhouse. It was quite humorous. I tried to search for it, but was unsuccessful. If anyone remembers what I am talking about or can find it send me a link. I could go for a good laugh again.
    I was ready for Josh Smith to go to Indiana, but he went to the NBA. I am ready for him to come to Indiana once again.

    Are you talking about Peck and Scot Pollard?

    Instead of looking into the camera and saying "Hey kids, do drugs" Scot should have said "Hey kids, wash your hands after peeing."

    It was the story about the man who for lack of a better phrase, had an *** explosion and at the same time was vomiting. His elastic sweatpants were filling up with puke and such. Then hosed down the bathroom by himself.

    I would say something to the effect of, "Thanks bro and good luck with your, um, your, dukes." Then I would run out and tell all of my friends that some dude in the bathroom was going nuts on the john. Banging walls and such. Then I would move on with my life.

    But what if, hypothetically, there's a better than average chance the guy dying in the stall is a partner at the firm? I can't use the word "dukes" around him.

    If he's not good with dukes, maybe go with "Thanks, and good luck with your transaction as well."

    "Thanks. Here's hoping you close the deal and everything comes out all right in the end."
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    If you sneezed into your hands, you better have taken your *** back and washed your hands again, nasty.
