Another reason I'm glad I'm a freelancer

I was onsite at a client's office yesterday, training somebody to use the RFP Machine. During a trip to the restroom--which is shared by everybody on the floor--I read a sign taped to the inside of one of the stalls. This sign, which shall forever be known to me as "Bathroom Etiquette for Dummies," read something like:
Please check to make sure that everything you left in the toilet has been flushed down.

If the toilet continues to run, jiggle the handle.

If you need a plunger, there is one beneath the sink. If you do not know how to work a plunger, call Steve.
There were also instructions on how to turn off the water if the handle-jiggling didn't work.

Sure, I may have to replace my own toilet paper, clean out my own sink and deal with any plunging issues without Steve's assistance, but I will take some minimal bathroom maintenance over the necessity to post a sign reminding people to thoroughly flush the toilet any day.

Oh my goodness! That is hysterical!! Wonder what all happened to bring Steve to the point where he felt he needed to post "potty rules". :)

I shudder to think about the circumstances surrounding the creation of the flyer . . . better still was the fact that key portions were highlighted in yellow.
