OT - IBS struggles
Just a quick blog about digestion and crabby office people at work.
One of the bathrooms at work is a solitary one (no stalls). The people in that area feel as though it's their personal bathroom and don't like others using it. We all use this bathroom regardless, but it doesn't stop them from sending out passive aggressive emails, putting up signs about "smells", or straight up asking if it's "okay to go in there" when you come out.
I should probably say that this behaviour is born and tolerated in a heavily unionized workplace, which can work both for and against us. Just a disclaimer.
The yucky part: I have IBS. I'm lucky, because my sisters have Crohn's. I got quite sick with IBS a couple of years ago due to stress and lost an unhealthy amount of weight. Managing stress helped me to gain it back and keep food in my system. But it didn't keep these people from making comments when I would leave the bathroom.
Today they put up another passive aggressive sign in the bathroom about "smells". I've had a bad flare-up this week and it seems it was noticed. Like, it's a bathroom. People poop in there. They should be used to 6'4" McDonald's eating cops pooping in there. What the what?
I feel like running with it though. The union protects me as well. Perhaps a few poop emoji stickers should appear? A bottle of Poo-Pourri? Any ideas on successfully trolling my busy body coworkers?
