Bathroom Etiquette 2

OK, so in my last post on bathroom etiquette I went into detail on etiquette for choosing a bathroom stall. This post is on Reading Material.

While using the facilities at work yesterday morning I noticed a few Avon catalogs in the file holder by the sinks. (My office kindly has a file holder near the sinks should you decide to coincide your restroom trip with your Xeroxing.) I didn't think anything of it but when I went BACK to the bathroom in the late afternoon the Avon catalogs had made their way IN to the stalls.

Now, it might be OK for the first person to have taken it in with them but then to leave it? Shouldn't they have either taken it with them or at the very least, put it back so no one would have known where it had been? (Nothing like picking out a new lipstick shade while peeing.) Did they really think I would want to pick up something that a prefect stranger had held and skimmed thru in their process of relieving themselves? Gross.

If you're going to leave reading material in the restroom do it with the suggestion that people to take it with them. Do you really want someone to take the catalog in with them, look at it in whatever stage of “going” and then PUT IT BACK for the next unsuspecting person to pick up? That seems a bit unhygienic don’t you think?

In fact, now I’m thinking about it, is it really appropriate to be hocking your SECOND JOB’s wares in the bathroom of your primary place of employment? At least have the decency to do it in the lunchroom.
