How Long Are Your Bathroom Breaks?

The Manchester, New Hampshire, airport had only one air traffic controller on duty who was qualified to handle takeoffs and landings, so when he took a 12-minute bathroom break, all the planes just waited. Twelve minutes is not bad if your work is not too pressing, but air traffic is something I would think of as rather time sensitive. I suggest this traffic controller get more fiber in his diet.

I make quite a bit more money than an Air Traffic Controller, and I would not hesitate to take a bathroom break any time I need to. Having said that, I would also inform my superiors and working partners where I was going. It takes me about the same amount of time to go to the bathroom. I would say that the Air Traffic Controllers Union needs to get more Controllers to cover the job.
