Fuck, that's about the same chair position the Israeli High Court deemed illegal torture when used against terror suspects. They tie suspects (victims?) to a low chair with a seat tilted slightly forward.

As an audit supervisor once said to a 22 year old me: "You should just take care of that at home."

Assuming each subsequent answer means your prior is taken, it’s 5-1-3 then who cares.

If you go in and all open 3 is a solid choice to dissuade anyone that comes in subsequently. But yeah 1/5.

1/5 are the most heavily trafficked. Gotta factor time of day and cleaning schedule if you're going there.

Speaking of work bathrooms...how would one go about finding out what the legal requirements for people/bathrooms ratio is in a workplace?

The floor I work on has at least 70 people (probably more), and only has one men's room (1 urinal/1 stall), one women's room (2 stalls I'm assuming), and one unisex (1 stall). Its crazy...after a big meeting, there will be lines of people waiting to use the restroom. A lot of times I'll take the elevator down to the lobby to use the bathroom there.

Interesting question. I wonder if there's a legal requirement, or merely a suggestion? Perhaps a commercial builder would know.

I write this as I'm just about to take occupancy of my new office, and as part of the renovation, we enclosed an exterior door. The only door from the shared interior hallway was quite narrow, and we had to make it ADA compliant.

At our recent Christmas party, I was talking with a manager (not of my group) and complaining about how noisy our 'cube farm' area gets. We have 48 (!!!) people sitting in a very small space, with low walled cubes. Its insane how noisy it gets at times.

He admitted to me that they were pushing the limit on how many people could be in a space like that, and that they were 'WAY OVER' on the bathroom issue.

We don't have a capacity issue, but I happen to work on the Lobby Level of a 12 story building, and our only bathroom access on this floor is with the public BR. Not a huge deal, but I fairly routinely head up to our 6th floor because the only department up there is HR, and the rest are conference rooms. Better chance of having a BR to myself.

I look to poop in private.

Do all restrooms on your floors have codes, or just the womens.

In my building only the womens does, so i can go to any one of the crossover floors and use that one.

Well, I'm in an odd situation where we own the whole damn thing. So I can poop wherever I want!



I mean, you know, not ANYWHERE I want.

We own our building and I will go from floor to floor to find unoccupied if I suspect a potentially violent experience.

And no codes on restrooms at all. Restrictions to floors, but not to any restrooms.

Never heard of codes on office bathrooms. That seems weird.
