New work, Sneaky gas

OK, new work IBS issue. I'm afraid to use the bathroom at my new work, because it's got thin walls and is surrounded by offices. Plus I need a key card to get in it!!!!! They can see how many times I use the bathroom in a day!!! I'm a temp too, and will be for at least the next 2 months... I'm worried I'll be flagged as a bad hire if they catch on to my stomach problems!!

Other than that, my new job's OK. A couple of people hate me because they either had or applied for my job, and I replaced them. But everyone else is basically OK. There's a ton of work to keep me busy, too, so I'm keeping out of trouble.

I got my own desk this week! They put me in a storeroom closet that's adjoined to another desk. It has a window! With a view of an apartment building's little garden and a fountain!

Unfortunately, because I have a guy right outside my door, that means I can't let one rip at my desk, or else he'll hear it. So I have had to have sneaky gas.

I got paid on Friday! My own money!!! What shall I buy myself as a present?????? Maybe I'll get a massage!

Hi Nelly,

I know exactly what you are going through. Where I work the bathroom is right across the hall from my desk and the walls are thin, too. I can hear all "sounds" coming from there. My boss eats lot of veggies, so you can just imagine. They can use the Oust spray all they want, but, I know exactly what's been going on in there....they can't fool me. Although, when they come out I act like I'm really concentrating on my work and have no idea what's going on.

Thank goodness, I get my pooping done at home before I go in and if I have gas, well, I just hold my breath, take a Phazyme and hope for the best.

Hope you have fun spending your paycheck.

I definitely have the advantage working alone when it comes to gas! LOL!!! However, when I must potty, I either have to put a sign on the front door "be back in 5" and lock it or risk someone walking in mid evacuation!

I vote for the massage! My pain clinic just hired a new massage girl and OMG she is the best!!!!!

Taking it one day at a time.....

When I was teaching gas was a NIGHTMARE! Sometimes I'd go prop the door or "look at something" outside so I could get some relief!


Those who can do; those who want it done better teach.

You guys are too funny!!!! Luckily our bathroom has cement walls! And I'm an engineer in an office-full of men, so chances are good that the bathroom's empty when I go in there.
