Hah! Yes please!

I've got a good one about an extremely constipated 6 month old, a day of eating prunes, and someone else's sauna...

I used to wear headphones and listen to music. I'm an engineer, so if I was in a lab and needed to concentrate on work, I'd wear noise cancelling headphones. People talking loudly are annoying (I had a desk near IT, and those jokers were notorious for being too loud), but unless I wanted to listen to how the SC Gamecocks were doing that season, I wore headphones.

I work in a client facing role in banking (personal banker). Headphones aren't an option. I think I should just keep my door closed but the blinds open to avoid the nuisance.

Walk away. Seriously... On the other hand...if this is your only low you are doing very well.

Parents that share these stories are living there lives...It is their daily experience.

Not getting it is likely because you haven't gone through it. Believe me, I have some hilarious stories...
But...You wouldn't want to hear them.

On second thought...Just for You OP
My son was almost two. We had the boss over for dinner right after work. We had been saving the surprise for when Daddy got home. Right in the middle of the adult conversation my toddler starts across our long living room...potty bowl in hand, (he had gotten the bowl out all by himself)...He just couldn't wait to share with Daddy and the Boss! This story kills me every time...Of course we all applauded....

Or, do you want to hear about the time I took my son for his first stroller ride to visit a neighbor? I was wearing a white shirt and holding him while we had coffee & cake and then he had an amazingly huge diaper blowout...

the blowout was all over me & beyond..

Haha yeah the OP definitely needs immersion therapy, its the only answer

I was on holiday with my family, my baby was 6 months old and hadn't pooped in over a week. I got desperate and fed her pureed prunes pretty much all day but it was doing nothing. My uncle heated up the sauna and I took her in as it helps relax her for bed but it clearly relaxed her too much as she let out a week's worth of poop all over me and the sauna bench. My poor aunty had the next turn in the sauna...
