From our reader, Liz, who gets a full body shudder when dudes say this to her:
I can see why this would get on your nerves, but honestly, I think it's kinda cute when he says "little boys' room," But, I also think that spending my tax return money on comic books and candy is a reasonable thing to do so WHAT DO I KNOW?
It's a building that turns into a robot!What is it with guys who use the phrase “little boys’ room” when referring the bathroom? Really? Are you going to play with LEGOs in there? Will you be having watergun fights and/or a Matchbox car race? Do you still wear Underoos, too?
Imagine if instead of politely excusing ourselves from the table saying that we “need to go freshen up,” we dropped them a little gem like, “Be back in a few. I've got to go take a poo poo. Don’t hold the appetizers; I’m gonna be gone a vewwy long time! Tee-hee.”
So, fellas, unless you have, ahem, little boy parts to go along with your little boy talk, please save the kiddie-speak for your Nana, who still thinks of you as her precious five-year-old.
What do y'all think? Does this phrase make you cringe or not? Tell us in the comments.
