    I love leaving little gifts in the bathroom. I'm juvenile like that.

    ...Half drunken cups of coffee with a half eaten danish, etc. Good times.


    I've taken my old coffees and dumped them in the stall toilets before. Looks like super liquid diarrhea that somebody left.




    very much looking forward to the outcome of this thread.

    Ok, the message has been there for almost 5 hours now. I am guessing that the offender has observed said message and is currently embarrassed and thinking of what to do next.

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

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

    My guess is that the answer you are looking for...will be quite unsatisfying.

    It's just some random OCD thing that doesn't make sense. Does OCD ever make sense?

    in my place of work we have made the mistake of letting customers use our bathroom. not a good idea. piss on the floor, crap on the walls, tampons, pads and dirty diapers strewn about. no joke. be glad you dont have to deal with that.

    anyhow, let us know when you get to the bottom of this pB

    I don't think it's traditional OCD (avoiding contamination). Putting the paper towel like that requires more contact (open door, exit, turn around, put paper in latch area with one hand, pull top of door with the other hand). It would be easier to just open the door and walk out without touching it again.

    People have all kinds of sexual and psychological issues with scat and public places. During my college in a very small dorm (40 people), someone would repeatedly shit outside the commode. Meaning every fucking day there was a perfect double-tapered (to paraphrase George Brett) shit on the floor of the womens bathroom. Someone obviously got sexual pleasure thinking of how someone had to clean it up.

    As much as people are messed up like that I kind of have to find it interesting.

    I just went into the bathroom and the message still stands six hours later.

    I am just glad that I have Style Forvm to get me through this period of my life. I don't think I could manage alone.

    It wasn't entertaining enough to justify a daily regimen

    Next time put on the note "I'm watching you". Then secure a fake security camera in the corner of the bathroom.

    is it possible it is the janitor signaling to another janitor/supervisor that the stall has been cleaned? solving the squeaky door is also possible. test the door and see if it squeaks. also possible he wants to know if anyone is germing up the latch he has to touch. also possible he is a sociopath and wiped his ass with the paper towel so that you have to touch it because he thinks that's funny.

    No, I've seen the janitors. The blue water is a sure sign. No squeaks. If a stall is out of order a proper sign is posted saying so.
