WIRTW #303 (the “toilet humor” edition)

True story. I just learned of a company (not a client) that maintains two sets of bathrooms—one for its “office” employees and one for its “warehouse” employees—and never the twain shall meet. The company forbids the warehouse workers from using the office restrooms. I’m not sure if the converse is also true, but given the air of snootiness that would lead to such a policy in the first place, I doubt management would grace the warehouse restroom with its presence.

Do I need to tell you that you are sending the wrong message to your workers if you have class-segregated bathroom? Or, am I off-base?

Readers, what do you think?
