Sometime you can be responding for a long or a short call in your washroom and in this process your hear your name being called do respond to the call, keep quiet or what do you do. Sometime the person calling you is in a hurry or need something badly or a visitor has just come into the house and calling your name, do you respond to the visitor.

Well, if I am in the bathroom I generally do not want to be disturbed. I will even take the phone off of the hood if I am home alone, so that I am not disturbed while using the bathroom. I doubt if a vistor will come in my house without me knowing, or ringing the bell first. If my husband called, I will yell back to him, to wait until I come out of the bathroom.

I do respond but I have to admit, that is an embarrassing moment! I'm enjoying myself, doing whatever needs to be done and then, all of a sudden this wiseguy knocks on the toilet door trying to gain entry. As far as I am concerned, this is my private moment and no one has the right to intefere! Andrew

Yea I would respond, and tell them I'm busy lol. I like to talk loud so its no big deal to talk to someone when I'm in there. I don't usually respond when I'm taking a shower and someone has to pee really bad ha!

I will respond of course because they're in a hurry. Nothing bad answering what they want to know. Better to shout out loud my response for them to me outside. But not in the middle of you know........(LOL)!

Most of the time I would have no problem responding back to someone if they call me. And since it is just my husband and I most of the time he knows where I am at if I am in the Bathroom unless he comes home from somewhere and I am in there. But overall I would rather answer him if I hear him everytime he needs to talk to me to make sure and let him know I am OK as well.

Ha ha! That's really a funny question but a fact that happens to all of us. Well for me it depends. Sometimes I respond and sometimes I don't. It really depends upon who the caller is. If I am in toilet and my family member I would respond. If in case it a friend coming from outside, I can take break from my toilet and respond my friend. Taking a break it sounds funny ha ha....Its even funny when I have to get back to toilet after responding lol.

I would normally respond. I don't see a problem with it. It has happened before. I know some people that might not like to respond while they are in the bathroom or washroom. Personally I don't like it when someone doesn't respond when I call to them.

Hi oderog, I do yes, I can't help myself, doesn't matter who it is either. I've even been known when someone knocks on my back door to shout I'm on the Loo what do you want ?...lol..I have no shame! only the back door though, so maybe I do have some decorum.

If I am taking bath or doing anything which cannot be cut short, I'll ask the fellow to wait for me, till I am finished. I just cannot come out from bathroom without clothes and having soap lather all over my body...........LOL!

Yeah oderog, I usually would like to take my cell phone into the bathroom when having shower or doing any other business, for I don’t want to miss any calls from my loved ones and good friends. I prefer to answer call instantly instead of from the miss-call list. The front door of my house is always locked so no one could come in my house unless he has the key. So the one calling me outside the toilet surely is one of the members of my family, of course I would answer him or she. I understand that they rarely calling me when I’m in the bathroom, unless there is something urgent to tell me or they couldn’t help telling me a good news. When having vacation with friends we usually would go in the public toilet together. You know sometimes not all the toilets are vacant so some of them have to wait for their turn. If anyone of them hastens me outside surely I would respond to her. posting and Merry Christmas!

Well, I normally respond if they will ask me a question but if they will just call my name, I keep myself quiet. Our bathroom is not so big that you can hear conversations outside and there's no big deal answering their question unless I can't hear it clearly because of the shower.
