Let's add to my list of things that prevent me from doing my business in the bathroom right now. The current list contains one item: "When a dog is present."

The new item is: "When the janitor is in there."

I went into the upstairs office bathroom just a few minutes ago to conduct a brown transaction, and I had to divert to the downstairs bathroom because the janitor was in there. Leaving aside the fact that I still find it oddly uncomfortable to do it while there's someone else in the room, I think it's just cruel to make a mockery of the guy's efforts to keep the place clean while he's still in there.

I suppose I could look at it as simply affirming the man's job security, but maybe my brain just doesn't work that way.
