  •  David Sedaris has a funny story about it... (7+ / 0-)

    He's talking to his sister on the phone and says something about someone using a phone in a public restroom and he's disgusted.  She says he's naive and that people do it all the time.  Oh, come on - how do they hide the sound? he asks.  "Just washing dishes" of course, or (if need be) "Just trying to open this jar" as they grunt away.  He suddenly remembers all of the times she was opening pickles while she was talking to him on the phone, and his helpful suggestions to give the jar a good whack or maybe run some hot water over the lid.  (Of course, I don't do the story justice.)

    Just call their form of government Hypocracy.
