Office Bathroom Etiquette
The issue of office bathroom etiquette came up today.
The issue was that sometimes, even in one's place of business, they will need privacy when dealing matters of digestion. In a communal bathroom environment, this can be tricky.
Among my pool of friends it was generally agreed that if you see someone in a stall, especially a back stall, for more than a minue or so, to leave. Clearly this person needs some privacy. As a decent human being, you should give it to him/her.
It was also pointed out that some people, mostly women, don't understand this, and insist on lingering around the commode, usually applying make up. For the person in the back stall, this can be maddening.
What are your thoughts?
