    I'm just so lazy. Maybe after the 2nd ave subway line is finished. Or maybe this week, we will see.

    I know the lazy part.

    The store is not so great for under $20 deals, do Chambers for that, but $40-60 they have some really great stuff. And, of course, their seletion of old and rare stuff is second to none.

    The thing with Chambers and Astor is they have some great deals on cheap stuff, but they also have a lot of cheap garbage so it is best to know what you are going in for.

    I know that you are only a year older than me...but I constantly forget this until I am reminded again.

    My new office is on a different floor...this floor has better toilet paper.

    Unfortunately, the stalls seem slightly narrower (and I'm sort of big) so I am always banging my shoulders into them which is kind of annoying....but I think what is really going to send me down a flight of stairs to shit is the fact that there is always something fucked up about the stalls. I know that the average age of people on this floor is a lot higher but still wtf...there are even signs posted in each stall reminding people not to flush paper towels down the commode.

    The other day one seat had clearly been pissed on, another appeared to be clogged with TP and poo (couldn't tell if it hadn't been flushed or if it was stuck and I didn't want to risk trying to flush again and getting an overflow) and the third one had huge skid marks going.

    By the end of the day they is usually something wrong with ONE of the stalls downstairs, but this was all 3 stalls and it was only like 11:00.

    People are just real assholes. The people that do things to somehow not get germs on them ends up just infesting other people with them. Assholes.

    back in my old office on 5th Ave, our floor was full of mid-30's to late-40's men. That poor bathroom was destroyed constantly. People took so many shits there that you sometimes had to wait for one of the 7 or 8 stalls to become available. And it was always so lound in there with toilets constantly flushing, sinks always on, and peopel always grunting. I swore it was louder than the nosebleed section at a Mets game.

    Anyways, all that shit put so much stress on the plumbing system that the custodial staff made a routine of going into each stall and flushing the toilets multiple times just to keep things clear and moving.

    They do that here too. My company is weird. I work with mostly way older people. Like about to retire, older.

    the toilets at my current office are insanely powerful. Because I am an asshole, I once tried to see if it would have a problem flushing a stack of paper towels. The toilet basically laughed and made a fool of me. I swear it could flush a basketball.

    very much so.

    But I would not take any pride on leaving urine out in the hopes that it will linger with my co-workers. That's just a very low form of assholery.

    oh, reminds me, my father likes to take his old coffee and pour it into the toilets and just leave it there. Looks like awful diarreah :laugh:

    I approve of this. Jokes are always welcome. It is the people who have no respect than deserve a punch in the face.
