Contemporary etiquette

If you're in the loo of a pub, and someone else in there answers a phone call, is it rude to use the (very noisy) hand dryer?
(Asking for a friend, obvs).


  1. Yes, but no more rude than the person answering his phone in there in the first place. This is why voice mail was invented.

  2. Oh no! This question is going to bother me for the rest of the day!

  3. Who in his right mind would answer a phone on a pub's loo ?
    "Yeah, dispatcher, I'll pick them at 6:40", "WOOOSH" "Eh ? NAh, Golden Dragon, have a few ..." "BBBAAARRRFF" "Put that back in, don't ya see I'm on this fucking phone, you prick !?" "Yeah, I'll be there, no worries !"
    A pub's loo is where you do loo things, like pee, barf, and wash yer hands. "Not on my shoes, ye swine !" So it is noisy, and not suited for a decent conversation - bah !
    Strange case of multitasking.
