Some people just aren’t born with natural good timing. In fact, I am one of those people who have bad timing on just about everything – jokes, smart comments, merging lanes, clapping to a beat, catching food in my mouth, you get the idea. Though I’ve gotten used to being know at the girl who says “who’s that?” about a person who I really should know, before they are a safe distance away from me so that they can’t hear my comment.
But now I have to add yet another thing I have bad timing with to my “list of things that I really should time better but probably never will” and that is having to use the restroom or “pee” at any time in my 8 hour day besides the 20 minutes that our facilities close it down for cleaning. It’s true, that on an average week here in the Zappos headquarters (which is five days) I get up to use the loo the very same time our wonderful facilities member Laura E. (you may remember her from Zapponian of the day ) has it shut down due to cleaning, three times. That means that three out of five times I have bad pee timing.
Laura E. now walks back to my desk to tell me it’s time to go potty right before she shuts ‘em down for cleaning. Laura E., you’re the best! Thanks for helping me improve my pee timing.
