Why I Need a Camera on My Phone

Yesterday I was in an office building attending a meeting. I stopped in the bathroom (of course!) and saw this sign typed up and taped on the wall:

"Please do not PEE on the toilet seat cover. WE KNOW WHO YOU ARE. We are tired of looking at your PEE. This is a place of business. To pee on the toilet seat cover is very inconsiderate and unprofessional. Why can't you use a disposable paper toilet cover like the rest of us?"

Wow.

one more thing? what's a toilet seat cover? is this person peeing on the seat... or on the LID????

Kristina P. said...

I don't understand either!

Ellen Stewart (aka Ellie/El/e) said...

So, did you stop?

Laraine said...

They could solve their problems with a camera in the restroom.

Ali said...

Hilarious! Do you have a bag phone? Go get a new phone sweetie! They almost all have cameras now!

Midwest Mommy said...

Huh? You should write back and ask them to clarify their requests that you are a little confused.

LOl at Ellen's comment!

Yes - get a red marker and circle that "toilet seat cover" and say in capitals, WHAT IS THIS?? And start a passive-aggressive note war. Sounds like a productive workday to me!

Graceful said...

Yes! I like Elisa's suggestion -- a passive-aggressive note war. Have you ever been in those bathrooms in which there is an ongoing graffiti war? It really does make for some interesting potty reading.

Funny! Imagine what the microwave must look like in the employee lounge....

Christy said...

Too funny! I'm confused too - lid or seat?! Hehe! I say go back and post up a new note from the 'offender'. THAT would be funny!

Heidi said...

That's awesome.

Masala Chica said...

LOL. I hope you stopped that annoying habit of yours! ;-) I think the person who wrote that note sounds like our former admin - I had wondered where she had gone . . .

LOL @ you and @ Ellie.

Don't they mean those flimsy paper things that are dispensed above the toilets? The ones with the seat-shaped design and the flap?

That note is hilarious. I'm digging the part about the offense being "unprofessional." I didn't know professional behaviour extended to restroom activities... but then again, I'm only an amateur. :)

LOL. That is so funny and I really laugh thinking of the expression on your face while reading it!

Um...I'm sort of thinking of taking that sign verbatim and posting it in the bathroom my husband and sons use.

:)

Nichole@40daysof said...

Hilarious! You definitely need a new phone.

Hello? Anna's husband? Are you reading this? Christmas is coming. :)

I would love to see the group writing that note. Torches and pitchforks.

purejoy said...

wow. sounds like whoever wrote that note should have counted to ten. seriously! and yes… the cover?? what the heck is that?
i've heard women's restrooms are the worst. i'd hate to have to be the cleaning person.
but yeah. note wars… i love it. makes going to the potty so much more fun.

How funny! :)

I wonder how they know who it is?
I work in a public school and one of my duties.....the highlight of my day....is monitoring the kindergarteners in the hall restroom after lunch. Moving 60 children in and out. Good times. I always walk in the rr first to check it, then stay at the door to let a few kids in at a time.

Several times, when I first go in to check the rr before letting the kids go in,there has been bright yellow pee on the floor near the french drain. I need a nanny-cam. How I would love to catch that little pee-er.

And almost always there are drops on the seat. Thankfully Dr. Oz tells us that urine is virtually clean.

I remember going into the restroom at our local theater directly after a sweet looking little old lady. I'm telling you - that 80 year old had to do the hula to get THAT much pee THAT well distributed to every part of that seat. I'm still amazed to this day... my goal? To be able to hula pee all over the seat at 80... not that I'm going to, but I'd like to be able to swivel like that.

the Hawks said...

Brilliant!!! And I think its the part you sit on, not the actual cover.
