    Cool You have a potty keyboard. . .

    LINK

    75 percent of Americans admit to using their smartphones while on the toilet.

    Toilet texting is particularly popular among those 28 to 35-years-old, with a reported 91 percent of that age group admitting to the habit.

    Even more disturbing, 1 in 5 men admit to taking it a step further by phoning into business meetings from the bathroom. But they aren't alone; 13 percent of women also owned up to joining conference calls from the can.
    This, of course, explains some of the posts seen on the game threads and the after lunch musings in the Online Crosby Center. . .

    Five fecal coliforms



    And here's one of myriad reasons you just don't borrow someone's phone these days. Pay phones were likely cleaner.

    Guilty on all counts, and I'm not ashamed to say it. My only regret is that my phone gets substandard reception in certain bathrooms in our building.

    Also, you have to master use of the mute button before dialing in on while on the can. The only thing more awkward than the sound of a flushing toilet on a conference call is the silence that follows while everyone waits for someone to fess up to being in the john.

    I look at it as saving paper. I used to print out articles to read on the toilet. Now I can just read it on my phone.

    In one building I work in periodically (Defense Logistics Agency) the best reception is in the upper floor corner bathroom in the outermost stall.

    For some reason I assumed this would be about bad words typed on a keyboard with a list of the most frequent foul posters.

In order to ensure privacy we put up a shower curtain so people could still walk from room to room.

    Apparently, it starts at a young age these days:

    Uber will admit that when he first got a "smart" phone, one of the first things he did was post to the BW while on the can. And he announced that he did so.

    And Lothar promptly stated "Remind Lothar to never use Uber's phone"! And to this day, Lothar has never used Uber's phone.

    Not sure if that is because of the post Uber made from the can or the fact that Uber and Lothar have never met in real life. Well, unless you consider the Foo real life.

    If I were to get my wife a brand new Lexus like on the commercials for a Christmas present I think I would put this personalized plate on the back:

    Thanks for clarifying with the second sentence. I was thinking you were substituting it for another kind of paper.
