    Well if you go back, I already tried putting one picture over the john. It mysteriously disappeared and get this, it wasn't in the garbage in the bathroom either. Yes, I checked. I bet the culprit took it and incinirated it. Or even better they have it in a trphy box at home or some sort of shrine.

    ok, for your next act you need to do the following:

    stand on one of the toilets and take a picture of the neighboring stall from above, so it looks like it could be a screenshot from a camera situated directly above the toilet.

    print out said picture x 4.

    tape copies of the picture behind each toilet.

    although there isn't really any reason to do this, other than take crazy factor of this whole episode up a notch.

    So glad that I found this thread. There was a guy who did almost the same thing, plus more, at my old office in DC. He was an older gentleman who worked on a floor with mostly younger folks. We were a digital agency that shared a floor with some small boutique futures company (or something like that). They had about 3 women and 2 men. He was one of those men. He had severe OCD, but I do not think this was not about keeping the latch clean.

    This was his routine (which he did no matter what, even if someone was in the bathroom with him):


    1. Walk into bathroom and immediately wash his hands.

    2. Grab about 10 paper towels.

    3. Get a few of them wet and soapy.

    4. Go into stall and presumably wash off the seat and dry it.

    5. Place numerous seat protectors on the seat (not just 1 or 2, like 5 or so).

    6. Take dump.

    7. Never flush. Never.

    8. Leave protectors on seat.

    9. Emerge with a paper towel in his hand.

    10. Use it to turn on sink.

    11. Wash hands.

    12. Grab about 10 more paper towels.

    13. Use one to turn off sink.

    14. Use one to mark the stall door such as your culprit.

    15. Use one to open door and then proceed to throw it on floor inside bathroom as the door is shutting.


    Now, it might seem odd that I know all of this, but it was a constant source of entertainment and discussion in our office. The guy was infamous. We shared stories about him all the time. The women in our office always wanted to hear the story.

    The strangest part was that he didn't seem to mind that we saw all of this. He didn't alter his behavior if we were in the bathroom, even the non-flushing part. It was almost like he hated the younger folks and wanted them to stay clear of his territory.

    We surmised that he would leave without flushing to deter others from using the toilet. He marked the stall to remember which on he had used (maybe) b/c there were 8 and it was never the same one.

    People are strange.

    People's bathroom behaviors bother me so much. I don't know what it is. Some people's actions to appear to be as clean as possible make absolutely no sense. The idea that holding paper towels in your hands while you touch things will keep you cleaner is so flawed as it is. I think in some lesser extents than what is posted above these public bathroom clean freak antics are just a farce to give off the impression that they are so clean.

    Holy fucking shit

    I saw a variant of this today at work.

    Went into the restroom during a break from my meeting and saw TP stuck in the upper right corner of the door and folded below. It was bizarre and unfortunately I didn't have my phone with me. Will check back tomorrow and report back with pictures if applicable.

    Maybe it is a cult thing or some kind of underground movement...
