Thursday Special ~ Overheard in Cork

I was barely sitting down when I heard a voice from the other cubicle saying:
‘Hi, how are you?

I’m not the type to start a conversation in the ladies room. I don’t know what got into me, but I answered, somewhat embarrassed,
‘I’m grand!’

And the other person says:
‘So what are you up to?’

What kind of question is that? At that point, I’m thinking this is crazy so I say:
‘Uhhh, I’m like you, just sitting here.’

At this point I am just trying to get out as fast as I can when I hear another question:
‘Can I come over?’

Ok, this question is just too weird for me.  I figured I could politely end the conversation. I say:
‘No……..I’m a little busy right now!!!’

Then I hear the person say, nervously:
‘Listen, I’ll have to call you back.  There’s an idiot in the other cubicle who keeps answering all my questions!!
