No Bathroom Humor At The Table

Kevobobby, this one's for you.

The funniest thing about it is that the bloggers, at least at first glance, seem to be completely in earnest. Take, for instance, this blogger. Um, hi? How about you go to the bathroom to do your business, not loiter around writing odes to the toilet on notepads specially provided by your workplace?? I mean, I'm all for comfort and cleanliness when it comes to using a public restroom, but I'm not going to write a treatise on the *ideal* workplace bathroom and how it contributes to team culture. As long as I don't ever have to use a urinal, and nothing's growing on the toilet seat, I'm good to go.

Check out this comment thread at the bottom of the abovementioned post:

We have office supplies in the bathroom so people can write down haikus. It gets.. interesting.

Kate, this is brilliant! Well done. Love the photos and the overall concept.

“This is brilliant”?? This is mindless blather. The bathroom is for urinating, dropping anchors, and (hopefully) washing your hands. What’s next? Using the cistern as a writeboard?

I'm with you, Lucky.

I know, I know, TMI. But it's *my* blog! :)

Sometimes I really can't tell who is posting. Was that Kerry? Was that Braden? Or maybe Jenna crawled up and typed a nice little post... Maybe you guys could sign your name at the end just to clear things up.

Braden and I had a discussion about this the other day. Pretty much assume that it is Kerry (me), unless Braden has signed it. Braden never posts.

I would think Braden wouldn't have an aversion to urinals...or maybe he does, I don't know. :)
