He's In the Office

One of my old colleagues at the bike shop had a bad habit of telling people who called or stopped into the shop and asked for you by name that you were "in the office" if you were in the bathroom. He thought it was clever, but I always wondered why my friends never asked, "You don't have a phone in the office?" This confusion was exacerbated by his never telling anyone that someone had called or asked for you after you'd come out of the bathroom, which led to a lot of awkward conversations where people thought you'd been hiding in your office trying to avoid them when actually you'd just been chilling in the bathroom.
