Dear Prudence,
I am one of five women at my office. Roughly three out of five mornings, the one man we work with spends the first 10 to 15 minutes of the day in the (single, shared) bathroom. We work in a small office where we need to be available to any current or potential clients who call or drop in, so it does affect the rest of us if someone disappears mysteriously since, obviously, he doesn't announce that he's heading off to the can. I feel that if something is happening on such a regular basis, he should be able to take care of it at home before he comes to work. (He has only a half-hour commute.) My two-part question for you is: Is it worth saying something to him about it? And, presumably this would be a job for our manager, but what would be the best way of going about this? She usually hasn't arrived by that point in the morning, and so is not aware of this tendency.

—Waiting for the Can

Dear Waiting,
How would you approach this with your manager? "Sue, I believe Dick starts his day with a bowel movement at the office. Could you please tell him to coordinate his bodily functions better so we don't have to cover for him for the first 10 minutes of work?" Maybe you could talk to Dick and tell him that if he's going to be doing something beside No. 1, he should announce it so the rest of you can plan your morning accordingly. Or maybe Dick is in the bathroom checking his insulin, maybe he has irritable bowel syndrome, or maybe it's hard to imagine that there is anything more inappropriate for you to say anything to anyone about.


I did IBM editing work all day today from Helios.

I'm totally frustrated with this document I'm editing, and about midway through the afternoon, I made a decision that I know I shouldn't have, but I'm doing it anyway.

Instead of continuing to mark up this document, I am implementing my changes. It's just less time-consuming to change things than to describe how to change them (and why they need to be changed) to a non-writer.


I fell asleep reading tonight, but woke up at about 11:30. I decided to check out Trailer Park Prize Night, which turned out to not be as crowded as it has been, and Jackie O'Knight was hosting, so it was funny.

I'm guessing that Carrie Underwood's song Before He Cheats is a crossover hit, as no matter when a drag queen does it, the entire place goes nuts. I'm sure that all those people aren't listening to country music.

The drag queen that did it tonight, whom I've never seen by the way, actually had a baseball bat the she weilded during the lines, "I took a Louisville slugger to both headlights..."

Now as much as I talk about "the Candice show" on here on Karaoke nights, I do have to admit that she did a terribly funny number in the show tonight.

She was dressed as a very pregnant Britney, and of course chain-smoked and drank like a fish during the number. What was most hysterical, though, was the ending, when she took out a huge pair of scissors and just chopped the hell out of her wig.

OMG, I was dying, and the crowd was in a frenzy as wig hair fell to the floor all around her.
