Shouldn't those stink lines be wavy?



We moved into a brand new office in PG that takes up the entire third floor. It's nice and all, but I'd rather be working from home.

In the handicapped stall in the men's bathroom, someone hung a sign that confused me as I took my morning constitutional. How can we be courteous with our poos? It's an automatic flusher, we're down the hall from any cubicles...is there something I'm missing?


So I hung a sign that turned out badly blurred that says: "Only fresh-smelling poos please". I would have retaken the shot, but when I went back, someone had taken it down.

Well, of course, I couldn't let that stand. So throughout the day, I've been putting up more signs to replace them when some weener takes them down. Is this what HP has become? If you can't put up good comedy in the bathroom stalls of a huge corporation, then the terrorists have already won.

GHB! Those are awesome. Here is a recommendation that you should adhere to: Put up another of your signs and watch to see who is taking them down. Then take down the actual "considerate" sign and hang it on the office door of that person.

No matter how much I've thought about the sign, I still can't figure out what they are trying to say. Do the poos have little tiny legs that they jump out of the toilet with and travel out to the cubicles? I could understand "sounds" travel, so please be considerate, but what the heck does "smells travel" mean?

it means that they are able to be wafted easily, like that fart that follows you back into the room because you didn't stand awkwardly outside the room for long enough.

I double-checked, and No. The handicapped stall in the women's bathroom (of the same office) does NOT have that same sign.

What does that say to all you men about sheer stink of your dookies? Even HP knows they're worse than a woman's.

Holy shit that's funny. sorry. couldn't resist. Seriously though, what a weird sign. I mean really, what is unusually, beyond normal, about the smells of the poo of the men or just the handicapped men of your office that it requires a special sign? And what should you do about it? Can't light a match or the smoke alarms goes off that THEN it's no longer a secret whose the stink poo. Do they want the overly foul person to not leave the door open and fan it out in the hall?

I read that Celine Dion demands rose petal be put in her toilet and the hotels she stays in. I guess her crap smells like rosepoo.

AAAAaaahhg! That is the dumbest sign I've ever seen! Why does the guy have stink lines coming out of his HEAD?! Is he burping? Why do people at HP have to be told not to burp really deep smelly burps? Nobody likes smelling your burps! That's gross. You'd think that grown adults would know this.

And that's why the sign is dumb.

I do have to admit there are quite a few people here that I'd like to bludgeon with the knowledge of the "courtesy flush". As much as I cringe at the waste of precious freshwater resources, I am a big fan of the courtesy flush in public toilets. I have to brush my teeth in there after lunch, and would prefer having them come out cleaner than when I went in, not the other way around because of the green cloud.

However, with automatic flush toilets, the courtesy flush can be considerably more difficult to execute. You can usually hike up to a squat position and fan your ass at the sensor to get it to oblige, but that doesn't always work.

The sign still doesn't make it clear what they mean. Courtesy flush is the only possible explanation I can think of.
