To want the ground to swallow me up?

I'm working. Consumer Client-facing media type role. Self employed. Experienced and usually very professional. Busy time of year so a bit tired.

I was standing in the toilets of the venue I'm working at with two women who are part of the client group. All the loos are full so we're waiting patiently as you do, as a woman, in a public toilet environment.

My mouth opened and I can't quite believe what came out of it!!!

"Omg it's at times like these you wish you had a penis"

I'm mortified.

I feel I need to do the walk of atonement.

Meh it's not that bad.

Ha ha-If you'd said that in a queue of ladies in front of me, I would have agreed and thought you were really funny!!


ThroughThickAndThin01 · 29/07/2017 18:09

I think it's ok too. I'm sure I've heard that kind of comment more than once. It is annoying not to have one, in that scenario.


SerfTerf · 29/07/2017 18:10

Meh. Didn't they laugh?


EarlessToothlessVagabond · 29/07/2017 18:11

How did they react? I would have laughed and agreed but I know some people are a bit prissy about stuff like that.


gingergenius · 29/07/2017 18:12

They did. But it's a really posh do and the words came out of my mouth before I'd checked they were sensible!!!!

Don't drink (any more) Wink


gingergenius · 29/07/2017 18:15

She did look at me askance and laugh politely. But I have sat here for 15 mins mentally smacking myself round the head and hoping guest doesn't discuss my mildly inappropriate penis conversation with any of the other guests!!!!

EarlessToothlessVagabond · 29/07/2017 18:20

I think that's reason enough just to get shit-faced now, Gingergenius?

Maybe don't listen to me though Wink


gingergenius · 29/07/2017 18:21

@EarlessToothlessVagabond I wish! Still on the job though !!

Another trans thread Hmm


gingergenius · 29/07/2017 18:23

Huh? @britbat23

SerfTerf · 29/07/2017 18:27

@britbat23 you sound quite, quite mad dear Wink


BootsWithDresses · 29/07/2017 18:31

How's it a trans thread?

The queue in the women's is always long.

Man seem to be in and out in a minute.


gingergenius · 29/07/2017 18:36

Definitely, categorically and absolutely NOT a trans thread.

It's an inappropriate penis comment thread.

I'm currently hiding from guests and hoping I don't get discussed for my inappropriate toilet humour!

ha ha!! I'm sure they must've found that amusing at some level.
maybe your mind was wandering to the CFN thread(s) and you were worrying what you may be missing Grin


gingergenius · 29/07/2017 18:41

blue I have been ridiculously preoccupied with CFNs on mumsnet. It was a moment of madness. I thought it was funny but it was one of those moments when your mouth works without permission and you realise not everyone shares the same humour!!!! I've spent too much time on mumsnet recently 😬

Why would having a penis help? If you mean just go outside to pee, you can do it no problem learn to squat right I go camping and my mother thought me to pee outside when I was 8. Also do you think if one of the women where trans they might have a penis and still have to wait just as long, having a penis wouldn't make it any faster and just makes you sound transphobic.


EarlessToothlessVagabond · 29/07/2017 18:54

In what way has this thread got anything to do with Trans issues?! Utterly baffled!

There is no such thing as a female penis. And regarding my penis comment, it refers to the fact that men's toilets have urinals so more men can see at once, making the process quicker. This is not a transphobic comment. Not even slightly. Fuckity bye @RiverAB

The mental gymnastics it must have taken for you to come up with that must have exhausted you.

Wee. Not see. Obvs!
