    Ok, I am so curious and frustrated by this at the same time that I have to offer it to the forum. We all know that people's public bathroom etiquette and hyigene is always questionable; and if this is common knowledge, who are these people leaving disgusting messes behind?

    There is somebody at work who leaves a folded up piece of paper towel in the door of a stall every day. He is not in there, the toilet is clean and works, but each day I find the same thing. The door changes where it appears, but it happens frequently throughout the day. I see it, shake my head and push open the door. What do you make of this? Here is a quick iphone shot:

    you should take out the paper and unfold it, maybe there is a surprise in store for you.

    All of time and space, everything that ever was or
    There is a guy who leaves some folded paper towels all the time on the toilet-paper holder in one of the stalls where I work. People are just odd.

    I was thinking that he thinks people will think it is being used, or out of order so it is always free and fairly clean for him. I am going to find out who it is. I will keep everybody updated as I know you are all scratching your heads as well.

    are you located near any non-descript government buildings? this is classic CIA behavior.
