Answering the call of nature can be risky

Never answer your cellphone while in the bathroom.

The Usuzwile Mkhozi crew was told of what happened to former assistant coach at Moroka Swallows, Innocent Mayoyo, who has since left for Dynamos In Limpopo.

We put a call through to the man called "Ayobayo" and he related his experience of what happened when he sat on the throne answering the call of nature and minding his own business. The story in his own words ...

Mayoyo: "I was barely sitting down when I heard a voice from the other stall saying: 'Hi, how are you?'

"I'm not the type to start a conversation in the men's rest room but I don't know what got into me, so I answered, somewhat embarrassed, 'Doing' just fine.

"And the other guy says: 'So what are you up to?'

"What kind of question is that? At that point, I'm thinking this is too bizarre so I say: 'Uhhh, I'm like you, just traveling.'

"At this point I am just trying to get out as fast as I can when I hear another question. 'Can I come over?'

"Ok, this question is just too weird for me but I figured I could just be polite and end the conversation.

"I tell him, 'No... I'm a little busy right now.'

"Then I hear the guy say nervously ... 'Listen, I'll have to call you back. There's an idiot in the other stall who keeps answering all my questions.'

"It is at moment that I wiped, flushed and disappeared.

"That guy never got to see me.

"Thank God."
