Holders and Goers

The other day I almost ran into a co-worker in my mad dash to the bathroom. I was working on something and I didn't want to stop and risk losing my train of thought. As a programmer, sometimes you get in a groove and you can't stop regardless of what else is going on.

Except for one thing. Everyone has to go to the bathroom eventually.

That's right, I'm a holder. I wait until the LAST POSSIBLE MILLESECOND before I throw down the headphones and RUN for my life. My office is towards the far corner, so I always have to go past people, so I really need to do something about this.

There are normal people called Goers in the world that go just to go - in case they are somewhere later where they won't be able to. But for me, using the bathroom is the last thing that ever crosses my mind until it's too late.
