    No 7 is just ridiculous...how much time do u expect someone to spend in the toilet. I work in a call centre and i don't have time to be waiting like that.


    Also common sense is you clean any marks on seat ans make suee all business is flushed....but how in the world does splatter get onto floor...

    It is embarrassing when a stink is left behind though.

    Years ago a bank representative came to our house as we were applying for a loan. The very first thing he did upon walking in the door was ask to use the bathroom. Sure, no problems, I say...
    DH and I were sitting at the dining table waiting for him (the toilet was in the hallway just metres away) and after a few minutes it was apparent that he was shamelessly making himself at home, if you get my drift 😷💩
    The WORST part was when he finally emerged, we could smell it! So we had to sit through a half hour of the most uncomfortable meeting of my life; could not believe it tbh. I mean, would you not go before visiting a client? I remember I excused myself at one stage and casually gave the house a sneaky spritz of air freshener. I know it's a human function etc, but geez.... Blergh! 😱
    Haha! Years ago i moved into a sharehouse with some mates. Being poor students we used radio rentals for washing machine, fridge etc. One of the guys who delivered and installed the items asked to use the downstairs toilet. Not only did he do number 2's, he left skid marks. Wtf?! Who does that in a complete strangers house. 😕

    I also hate it at work when there is wee drops left on the seat. I always make sure the toilet is left clean when I'm done. Sometimes women can be messier than men.

She waited for about 20 minutes, but they didn't come out. Not very nice.
    .
    What she could have done was to leave the toilet block, wait 30 seconds and then re-enter. That way she could have id'd the offender and allowed he offender to save face at the same time (as the offender wouldn't know she was the one who was there when the Gary occured).

    Maybe you need to negotiate longer toilet breaks in your workplace agreement?

    I don't work in a call centre but at my work the call centre were timed on toilet breaks etc and got questions if it was long. Crazy!

    Not sure if they do it now.

    Also, I agree with all your OP. I thought it was just me who thought of all of those things.
