    I wear button fly too but I never unbutton the pants button to piss, only the fly buttons...

    The guys I was talking about were the ones that unbutton the pants button.

    Here's my theory: I think the guy is probably a germ-o-phobe, and will only use a stall after it has been cleaned by the cleaning crew. In my building, you can tell when no one else has used a stall if the toilet water is pink (from the cleaning solution). So, when he gets to work in the morning or whatever, and sees that a stall hasn't been used yet, he wads up paper and places it in the door as a marker that that stall is still unused.

    When he comes back later in the day, and sees the wad of paper on the floor, he knows that someone else has used that stall - that stall is now dead to him.

    However, if he sees that his wad of paper is still in place, it means the stall is still unused, and he can safety use it without risk of infection. I think when he leaves that stall, he places another wad of paper to indicate that it's still useable, since as long as he's the only one that has used it since it was cleaned, it's still good. This would explain why some days there are multiple wads of paper on the ground by one stall - he's the only person to have used it all day.

    What say ye?

    This is probably the case, but I still want to catch him doing to so I can call him an asshole to his face.

    I thought we already had proven that this can't be the case as he renews the paper wads during the day even if they've got removed previously by someone else.

    My solution:
    This guy doesn't want to touch the door when leaving the stall. He uses the paper and because he is both too lazy to throw it in the bin and doesn't want to drop it on the floor, he places it in the door so when somebody else opens it, it wasn't him dropping the paper on the floor. Next.

    Today spotted in this stall was about 300 seat protectors hanging on the coat hanger on the back of the door. I hate people.

    I went into the bathroom yesterday and noticed somebody was in that stall. I did my business and I waited outside for them to come out so I could see who came out and go back in to see if the offender left the door papered shut.

    I waited like 20 freaking minutes and the intern walked out... I was saddened because this has been going on long before him. I checked anyway. No dice. Time to give him more work to do.

    See? I am trying, people!!!!!

    Because generally their pants will be sagging enough to notice.

    That's weird. When I wear button fly denim, there's no way I can just unbutton the fly portion. It has to be all of them and my pants have never sagged down because of it.

    Me and the guy in the stall next to me happened to stand up at the same time. It turns out he was tall too and we met eyes over the top of the divider. It was weird...

    Dude, I really should start counting the times you touch the gay subject in your posts.
