The Bathroom Kumaaran* strikes again

December 14, 2011

A 30 year old guy, at around 12 Noon, after a client meeting, goes to the restroom to release his frustration. He locks the door and enjoys the solitude that’s being provided by a closed room with absolutely no human intervention. After leaving a deep sigh of relief, he takes rest on the pedestal made available for poor souls like him. He logs in to his FB account searching for updates from friends when, from out of the blue, he listens to two women speaking. He assumes the voices are from his phone. Some new FB application to scare technically handicapped people like him, he thinks! But no, the voices are from just outside the door. Panic strikes him. He feels he has entered the ladies rest room by mistake. He recollects the way to the restroom. He remembers seeing ‘GENTS’ on the door and also, having seen urinals on his way; a ladies rest room can never have those mounted on the wall for obvious reasons. He keeps quiet, thinking the women are new joinees and has unknowingly entered the men’s restroom, but realizes that the female gender is not that dumb. He confirms that he has got himself into a new trouble, but isn’t sure what it is. The door knob turns. He immediately looks at the lock to ensure if he is ‘safe’. He stays put, waiting inside the room for the women to leave. 5 mins… 15 mins…. The women folk are still in; they are discussing on the upcoming Christmas holidays. He wonders if, by any chance, he is at fault and worries about what others would think if it actually is – He will be terminated; he will end up being the laughing stock for a lifetime; will be disowned by his parents; his missus will leave him for good, which, on the contrary, brought a smile to his overly concerned face. After all, nobody believes a guy in such a situation. He looks at his watch…20 mins…and no sign of them leaving. Suddenly, silence prevails. Best time to escape, he thinks. He quietly opens the door and starts walking tip toe. To his horror, he starts hearing the two women speak again. With all the available courage and leftover shame, he proceeds towards the main door only to get the shock of his life. Two house keeping ladies, inside the men’s restroom near the mirror, waiting patiently with bathroom mugs, mops and what not!! He pauses for a while, looks at them and asks them sarcastically “Is this not the restroom for men?”. The ladies giggle. He comes out and fumes at the Admin head through an email for letting women inside the men’s restroom.


The escalation was of no use; the damage to my image was already done!!! Apparently, there weren’t any male staffs for cleaning up the restroom yesterday and they had no other choice. But the least they could have done was to send some male representative inside to check if anybody was inside the restroom before barging in!!!

Well, this isn’t something which I am actually proud of and would easily feature in the list of the most embarrassing moments of my life, if at all I prepare one someday. I happened to narrate this to a few of my colleagues and now there are different versions of the story; one of them even mentions that I was being MMS-ed !!! 😀 😀 😀

*For the uninitiated, Bathroom Kumaaran is one of my nicknames in the Blog world, after having gone through similar bathroom escapades in the past.

  7. December 15, 2011 4:21 pm

    goes to the restroom to release his frustration!!

    enjoys the solitude that’s being provided!!

  8. December 15, 2011 4:25 pm

    the most private, peaceful and intimate moments with self, spoiled by the ever present high frequency banter. sigh. 😦
    but i daresay the fault is yours. you must make some sounds while inside the bathroom. musical, grunting or at least indicative.
    how else would the ladies know of ur presence bathroom uncle? 😛

    • December 16, 2011 7:46 am

      LOL, you got it buddy !!! We are not let to live in peace even there !!! I always knew ‘women’ are the villains in my life !! 😀 😀 😀

      Heyyy, what do you mean by indicative sounds???? I wasnt that frustrated ! 😀 😀 😀

      and stop that uncle reference! right now !!!! plssss 😀 😀 😀 😀

  9. December 15, 2011 10:02 pm

    Hmmmm…. Why do I think that I have already heard this story somewhere from someone… 😛

    I too go to the restroom often after the client call… It is actually one of the most peaceful place in the world…

    No matter how much you escalate but now on whenever those two women will see you pass by they’d definitely start giggling… Imagine them giggling in front of your colleagues or even better your senior and they’d be giving you that something fishy look… Ohh it’ll be so much fun… 😀

    Missus leaving you for this… No no no… Its not that simple my child…. 😛 😀

    • December 16, 2011 8:05 am

      Yeah, I think I should stop narrating incidents to people before I put it up in the blog !!! 😀 😀 😀 😀

      I know !! But now that I know I have company even there , I will think twice !!! 😛 😛

      Mine is such a sad life !!! The news has already spread in the office like wild fire and now its going to be the hot topic among the housekeeping and security guys too !!! Sheesh !!! “Aaj yeh sunkar meri maa kitni khush hogiii” !!!! 😛 😛 😛

  10. December 16, 2011 10:04 am

    hahaha… vimmuuu, this post is so weird on so many levels… 😛

  11. December 17, 2011 8:51 am

    sigh! why can’t people leave you alone eh? you poor frustrated soul? 😥 Women are attracted to you even when you are perched on a bottomless pedestal? 😯 I am sure those ladies must be quiet frustrated with ahem their husband’s and hence followed you on purpose into the bathroom 🙄 I say, it’s none of your fault man!!

    Phew!! okay now the above comment was just bcoz you say you are growing older and older on every single post of mine…..and for not saying any nasty things on my blog 😥

    Btw Vimmuu STOP GROWING UP and get back to being yourself 😡

    • December 18, 2011 2:32 am

    • December 20, 2011 8:25 am

      I know ! the one place I had freedom from women and now, even thats not there !! I think its a conspiracy, Saks ! somebodys plotting against me for all the anti woman posts I had written listening to that sage !!! I think its time I wrote a post against men and win back the confidence of all those women !! what say ????

      @ Brat : They didnt give me a chance, na? Ellaaam onnu sheriyaayi ‘vannapozhaanu’, I heard them speak ! 😀 😀

  12. December 17, 2011 3:39 pm

    • December 20, 2011 8:15 am

      I know ! That is exactly what I asked that Admin guy ! and the explanation I got was that they wouldve checked who all went in and somehow wouldve missed seeing me get in !! How lame, isnt it !!! My bad time, what else can I say !!!

      heyyy, we are doing good to the soil and plants !! now, that isnt bad, na?? 😀 😀 😀

  14. December 18, 2011 2:27 am

    You should be suing ur company man!! How dare they barge into a men’s toilet like tht!! This should be considered as invasion of bathroom privacy and male ..ermm..bathroom harassment at your ‘workplace’. Cheyy no freedom inside our bathroom also..Protest dude..protest.. a mail wont do!! You should step outside ur office and organize a rally against this!! 👿

    • December 20, 2011 8:22 am

      and that way, the whole of India or probably the world will come to know about this embarrassing tale of mine ! I can also plan my retirement along with that, ‘cuz I dont think anybody will employ me again !!! One advice; never advise anybody again !! 😀 :D: D

    hahaha. What a predicament you were in! 😀 😀 But on a serious note, how can women ever be allowed to enter men’s restroom? I mean why, how?? Like Bratula said, you must sue the company man. 😀 We’ll all support you in the fight.

    • December 21, 2011 7:52 am

      I asked all this buddy boy; no use !! they had their reasons, and Im still not convinced ! Like I mentioned to Saks, this is a conspiracy !! 😀 😀 😀

  24. December 27, 2011 12:36 pm

    Just be glad you were ‘safe’… And I’m sure it’s not just your colleagues who are gossiping about you…
    Are you sure the folks from the cleaning department are not giving you sly looks?

    • January 6, 2012 7:23 am

      Oh yes, they are ! Both of them look at me while they pass my bay with a smirk on their face !! 😛

  25. December 29, 2011 5:30 pm
