    preventing someone from sitting next to him is a logical explanation.

    I can also see selecting a clean stall in the morning and trying to "hold" it until you need to take a dump...does the slip of paper appear later in the day if you take it down?

    Yes, it does appear again, see page 1.

    Subscribed because this boggles my mind.

    All I've got is...the person who can't seem to stand close enough to the urinal to keep the floor piss free.


    It's a guy with a big gut. He is standing with his gut close to the urinal, but this means that his penis is farther back. So whereas a thin guy close to the urinal dribbles his last drops into that little lip of the urinal and down the drain, your more rotund man dribbles onto the floor. To find the culprit, first finger (not literally) the fattest guy in the office and work your way down, eliminating suspects as you go. And that's how we play Peepee Detective!

    As for Paper Man, I am not 100% sold on the cleanfreak angle. Mightn't a real cleanfreak avoid the office bathroom at all costs? Or, at least, wouldn't a cleanfreak put paper in all the doors, thus increasing the likelihood that one would go unused, of which he then could avail himself? In this case it's always one door, and one door only, which is papered - and not always the same door. No, I am thinking our man may be a "post poop paperer," marking his territory after the deed is done, or perhaps even sending a message to his successors in interest, is what I think.

    Imagine if you got home and there was TP wedged into the latch on your home bathroom...that'd make me more anxious!

    I've actually never shut the door to my bathroom. I live alone, so I'm like whatevz.

    Studio = Small Stall
    One Bedroom = Handicap Stall

    After many years working on wall st., I have seen so many disgusting things that this is relatively tame and harmless. The bathroom off the trading floor at Bear Stearns on a friday morning might as well have been the jockey room at Churchill Downs before the weigh in.

    What is wrong with people? Sometimes I think people leave disgusting things and messes in the bathroom on purpose.

    I am often bothered by stall talkers, actually I hate it. I also find the guys who give the sink the heisman and head for the door, to be vile.

    There is this one guy who is clearly playing soduku on the john. You can hear him working out the numbers under his breath. He mumbles 1 through 9. It drives me nuts.

    Then there is this severely obese fellow who is so out of breath when he gets to the bathroom I think he is going to die in there sometimes.

    There is this other guy who I nicknamed "scratchy", but I won't tell you why.

    Hysterical.

    Patty! There was a guy way back when banks trusted very learning challenged individuals with running billion dollars in bonds around manhattan, traveling by subway, I digress. Anyway, the guy used to use the urinal and walk his cawk to the sink and clean it off, pat it dry, while neglecting the hands.

    The snorer! We have all heard that one.

    The arrest! The guy who puts both hands on the wall whilst taking a leak.

    The dunker! The guy would courtesy flush, draw down the tp and dunk it in the clean water. Novel ideal I guess.

    Those two FTW! I guess this paper stuffer isn't really much at all...

    It still bothers me.
