    And here I was, thinking of this thread for nearly a year, not posting because I was worried people would think I was weird. Either I am
    Normal or we're all weirdos on BH..

    I agree with all of your OP too.

    I work in a 3 level building with other businesses. My office is on the middle floor. People from the top and bottom floors come to our floor to do their number 2s. Really??? If you have to do a number 2, go on your own level or go to the one in the basement!!! It got to the stage where all the women in my office would carry a can of deoderant, air freshener or Glen 20 in whenever we had to use the bathroom for any reason.

    I love this thread. Unfortunately in our corridor we have a toilet with only 2 cubicles so you have to use one next to the other person. I will wait until they have left though.

    If walking into the toilet with a colleague (sometimes when we get back from field work we both are busting) the rules are once the cubicle door is closed you have to stop talking.

    We've got signs up all over the place at work, and people still don't change it. Really pees me off.

    I have a question. When doing no. 2 what is the etiquette when flushing? is it with toilet lid up or down? I must have read on bh some time ago that it's best to have the lid down to contain the germs (hope that makes sense). If one does close the lid, after flushes ceases should they then lift the lid up again?
    I am always wary of picking a cubicle with the lid down...it's usually my last option.

    Definitely lid down, then a quick peek to check that it's all gone at the end.

    So that means lid gets left down?
