Ad-Hoc Bathroom Signage

No, I’m not talking about those awesome bathroom signs that provide helpful information, I’m talking about the type you see in office bathrooms which inevitably arise out of somebody’s general disregard for common courtesy in the bathroom.

Turns out that even Mr. Instapaper Marco, who still consults for Tumblr, isn’t immune to them.

The Problem:
Somebody’s been throwing paper towels on the floor, presumably after using them to open the door.

Somebody’s Craptastic Solution:
A passive-aggressive note, attributed to “Management” (cough-bullshit-cough).

Marco’s Improvement:
An updated, and so far unnoticed by “Management”, sign.

The Real Solution:
Just put a garbage by the door already!

Unfortunately, there really isn’t any room by the door for a garbage can. It’s a modest-sized bathroom — just one urinal and two stalls — in a mediocre New York office building.

Hmmm, that’s unfortunate. I can understand that not everybody feels comfortable taking the paper outside the bathroom with them (though I personally do this all the time!), and expecting people to have fantastic paper basketball skills isn’t exactly going to help…
