Pooping where you work

ToiletThere must be a certain gleam in my eye when I tell folks that I work about eight feet from where people poop.

Typical in these here parts, I’m afraid. A retail business sets up shop in an industrial facility. You probably know the sort. There is a front office area, usually consisting of two or three little rooms. In the back is an open space usually used for a warehouse. In the very back is a roll-up door for deliveries, etc.

The front area includes a bathroom. This bathroom is along the hallway and is no more than eight feet from offices in any direction.

When a retail outfit sets up in a location like this, the first thing customers see when they walk in the front door is the office space. They have to go down the hallway to get to the warehouse area that has been converted to a showroom floor.

Along the way, of course, they go right by the bathroom.

Oh what a joyous layout! I can’t wait to tell almost everyone I meet how thrilled I am to work only eight feet away from where people poop. If you haven’t been there, you can only imagine how awesome this is.

Nothing says “we care” and “customer service” like exposing customers to the smell of a working restroom, eh?
