Overheard In The Women’s Bathroom At THON 2016

If you’ve ever been in the women’s bathroom during THON, you know there are tons of interesting women to eavesdrop on. It seems that committee members, org members, spectators, and the occasional mom all have something to say. We decided it was time to write some of those things down.

Welcome to Overheard in the Women’s Bathroom at THON 2016.

Mom charging her phone by the entrance: “Up until a few years ago, I thought it was pronounced ‘Beej H.C.’ I thought it was someone’s name.”

Girl who entered through the exit: “Oh, is there a line?”

Girl who screamed “OUCH!” near the sinks: “Why do they make the water hot?”

Girl helping her friend adjust her bandana: “You are WORKIN’ it FTK.”
Her friend: “You’re corny.”

One of our hungry readers: “I read on Onward State that they have a burger here with chicken tenders on it and I want it so bad.”

Girl who was clearly unhappy about the playlist: “How many times are they going to play ‘Shut Up and Dance?’ I was already sick of it before THON, but now hearing it makes me want to vomit.”

Confident sorority sister taking a selfie: “I’ve been here for 17 hours and I still look good.”

Girl with the 411: “I heard there was a fight in here earlier. Things are getting real tense.”

Girl who didn’t wash her hands FTK: “I have to go, I have to go right now, I don’t even have time to wash my hands.”

Girl who missed the pep rally: “I hear the soccer team came and started twerking. I’m so upset I missed that.”

Girl crying because she ripped her tutu: “LIKE DO YOU EVEN UNDERSTAND?! I DIDN’T EVEN BUY THIS, I MADE THIS BY HAND! I’m sorry I’m so emotional, I’m so tired. Everything’s making me upset.”

Girl who gets excited by the line dance: “I love the line dance. It makes me, like, aroused.”

Girl who forgot her deodorant: “Oh my God, I smell like cheese gone bad.”

Girl who had a run in with R&R: “She was like, so rude to me, I don’t know why they have to be so strict. Like calm down.”
R&R who heard her complaining: “People just don’t get it.”

Girl yelling at her friend to hurry up: “Can you hurry up? I haven’t missed a line dance in 10 hours.”
Her friend: “You’ve been here for 10 hours?!”
Girl who quietly talking about me from the line: “She’s been in there forever, like…”

You can’t make this stuff up.
