Check this out:
The floor of the building I work on is full of engineers, mostly male by about a 90:10 ratio.  So the men's bathrooms are very busy.  Furthermore, we don't have a kitchenette or anything like that, so a lot of people use the bathroom to do various activities such as:  washing dishes, brushing teeth, gargling, shaving, the whole nine yards.  The urinals (three of them) are uncomfortably close together (literally an inch between the edges with no partitions) so the middle one is never used since you can't even really spread your legs to should width, which is the default urinal position.  Also, being engineers, who are "different" sort of folk, the bathroom environment is disgusting.  Awful sounds, awful smells, and the worst part is that it's always packed.  To make matters worse, the janitor cleans the bathroom (or does some work in there) multiple times a day, which I find weird because it's just weird to run into the janitor in the bathroom more than once a day, and multiple times a week.  And if you're already in there taking a shit, he might just come in anyway slothering the mop around and banging on the doors and slapping the toilet paper canisters.

As a result, I found the bathroom on the floor below to be much more pleasant.  No engineers, and a lot of women.  So the bathroom hardly ever has anyone in there, and it's always clean.  So I've been doing this for a while.

Well, today I go down and there's a note pasted on the inside wall so people who take a dump can read the passive-aggressive whatever.  Apparently, it bothers some men that there are people from other floors using their bathroom.  The not demanded that I eat more bran, or something like that.  It also asked me to make my shit smell better, which i would love to know how to do.  Finally, something not very coherent about taking webcam pictures and posting it somewhere, which is a joke of course, but a pretty passive aggressive one.

So now I'm bothering people with my bathroom habits.  Never expected that one.

You are an engineer...make a toilet that freeze-dries the "content" instead of flush. Then move the content to a location where it is out of nostril reach.

O yeah, and automatically lights a match too   tongue

As you have to something about the smell when the sink is full, create some sweet smelling birthday cake candles and use them as well  cheesy

I think this is blog worthy, call it The Engineers Log or something, I think you could develop it into quite a saga if you try - should be a most amusing read.

I'm going to overlook the scurrilous accusation that I was (or would ever be caught) thinking clearly ... Because you are indeed correct in that the candles would make a perfect over-the-topping.

That was the point!  Maybe I'll finally get the balls to do an open mic standup: the sad engineer.

I have worked night shift for most of my working life, so a busy bathroom was never a concern.
However, I do have an interesting bathroom story:

One place I worked at was in an older multi-story office building downtown, the kind with a marble-column facade and brass fittings in the elevators.
One night around break time, a female co-worker came to me and said "come here, I want to show you something".  huh
She was the 'weird' girl on shift that I was on friendly terms with, and had gotten to know her well enough that she actually wanted to show me some curiosity, and not making overtures of fraternization.
She went to the shift manager's office (not unusual, it was sparse,always open, and shared between 3 shift managers and various personnel) and grabbed a key from the top drawer.
She then took me to the elevator and we went up 3 floors.
When the door opened, we got out and she led me around a corner where a women's bathroom was.
"It's ok, there's nobody here" she said and opened the door.
It. was. immaculate.
White marble counters and floors, brightly lit, a modest chandelier hanging from a cathedral ceiling, the whole 9 yards and then some.
Most curious was a wooden door at the other end, marked with a brass plaque as "The Quiet Room".
My co-worker took me to the door and opened it with the key she had purloined.
Inside was a simple carpeted room about 6 feet by 10 with two orange tweed-covered chairs, a couch, two of those old two-tier coffee tables popular in the '70s with a desk lamp and stylish ashtray on each one.
A single large window over the couch offered a heady view of the city northward.
She kneeled on the couch to face the window, opened it, lit a cigarette and said "Isn't this place great? I wish it were on our floor".
I lit one for myself and joined her gazing over the city lights, chit-chatting until break time was over.
One of my best cigarette breaks ever, and we only had opportunity to go there twice again after that before she went back to working on day shift.
A year later, the office closest to that ladies' room expanded their office into the space the "Quiet Room" occupied.
Ah, memories...

That's just simply rude. I'd write on in in big red marker:


Or perhaps something slightly shorter, like just the first 3 words.

Oh... what would really make it super cool is to...

If they're going to bring kazoos, I say you bring a trumpet or an air horn to make sure they ALL know you're about to perform some 45° angle-bombing.
