What goes on in there?

Yesterday morning I wandered into the women's bathroom down on the floor everyone euphemistically calls the "ground" floor instead of calling it what it is...the dank, windowless basement where we keep all the IT and accounting people. Here is what I saw:

Under normal circumstances I would not post about work but this made my Monday. I've decided my new term for going to the bathroom is going to be "shaking out some cheese". After all, I think it's time for cheese to get a new reputation in that department.

What really impressed me about this, though, was that when I went back into my locked, dark area and said to my coworker 'Can I borrow your phone so I can take a picture of the can of grated parmesean cheese that's sitting on the back of the toilet in the bathroom?' she asked not one question and without even really looking up from what she was doing, handed me her phone. I don't know why, but somehow this entire experience just imbued me with renewed love for my fellow man.

OMGoodness! What on earth goes on in the ladies toilets?

Next, you'll find a bottle of wine, or something...

Hmmm. Multi tasking at a whole new level?

Did you take any pictures of naked ladies in there? I know a website where you could post them.

That is *hilarious*. Maybe someone thought it was Comet, realized their mistake, and was too embarassed to be seen carrying it back out? Maybe there will be some little pepperoni slices tomorrrow.

Some people like a little sprinkle of parmesan cheese on top of the loaf. In our bathrooms, one often finds frumunda cheese.

I went to the ladies' room at the Bonefish Grill and found an empty bottle of Grey Poupon on top of the toilet. I wonder if it was the same person.
