Exactly what Modo said. Though personally I try to avoid it because I'm the only one at work and have to close up shop to do so... but for me it's better than home. Good exhaust fan and high-quality TP.

I'm not going to not go if need to go. That may very well be at work.

I tend to get bound up while traveling.

Buddy of mine only dumps at home, exclusively.

Yes.
Not everyday, but also not just in emergencies. So I can't choose an answer in your poll.

I have made peace with it but prefer to have a single bathroom, not stalls. I also like to be prepared with the ability to fully clean up if things don't go as hoped/planned. Not much worse than wiping a "hanger" when you are not expecting one...

Funny ... I was thinking about this just the other day ---- of can they find anything worse that what is provided now. And I guess this semester we seem to have a lot of toilet paper thieves here. Guess they like the sandpaper.

I believe the same supplier furnishes our coffee and TP...about the same quality.

Every new shift cleans the whole fire station on theyre first day back, I always paid special attention to the bathrooms, Clorox on everything! Then Lysol! and I always had/have my own supply of baby wipes. So yes, I did go #2 at work, but only 'cause I knew it was clean.

To add. Since I have been really focused on what and when I eat, I have become really "regular". I gotta go just about every day at about 9-10 AM. I work at a company that makes medical devices, and they have a maintenance crew that keeps every thing pretty spotless.

Makes more sense to go at work than it does at home, for many reasons.

I might as well be paid to take a dump.

If I stink out the stall my wife won't complain about it.

If I block the bowl I don't have to deal with it (and indeed in every office I've ever worked there was nothing provided for dealing with such things).

It provides an opportunity for double-shirking, namely multitasking with two things unrelated to work while still being paid.

Just submit a fix it ticket to the facilities manager... someone will get around to taking care of things. GRIN
