Napoleon asked his advisors what the best way he can find out what’s going on in the country with regular folks. After much thought they advised him the only place to find out what’s going on is to go to the Mikva. They prepared him well, trained him how things work there and dressed him like a nice Yiddele.
Napoleon comes to the Mikva on an Erev Shabbos. After his seventh dunk he asks the others with him “vus is nays”? So they immediately reply, “You didn’t hear? Napoleon is coming to the Mikva this week!”October 26, 2021 8:18 pm at 8:18 pm #2021105

There are Halachic issues.
There are Hashkafic, or sensitivity, issues.
Shmoozing causes people to stay in way longer, and others can’t get in.
Staying in longer than necessary causes you to scratch, which nauseates people.
Having a conversation going on nearby can make people uncomfortable.
When you make your announcements and others are quiet, it’s not because they accepted your off-the-hip idea; they just think it doesn’t even pay to try.October 29, 2021 6:09 pm at 6:09 pm #2022406
