Bluetooth earpiece = douche. Talking loudly through said earpiece while taking a dump in a public restroom...I'm not sure I have words to describe that level of douchebaggery.

Bahahaha...I do this with/to deadheaders, especially if I know them. They're on the clock, right? Might as well let pax get all the dumb questions out with them before they start bugging me! Now a jumpseater? He/she is on their own time so I try not to invite harassment. Guess I'll take my sign...

Knowing what sort of device people have on their ear while taking a dump could consider awkward, but I'll assume you saw him going to the stall, as an APC courtesy

If I knew you and you did that to me while I was deadheading, I'd take the first opportunity to explain to tell my seatmate "Don't worry. Just because your captain likes little boys, it doesn't make him any less of a pilot.".

A "courtesy flush" is never a bad thing!

TOTD award goes to those in a public restroom that don't know what "courtesy flushes" are!
