Here’s to the crazy ones, TBWA\Chiat\Day likes to say—unless, of course, you’re talking about the asshole in the New York office who keeps plugging up the damn toilets. The men’s room on the 6th floor was closed recently thanks to “a genius in this agency who feels compelled to stuff the mens’ room toilet bowls with paper towels, and now has moved on to newspaper,” Mary Cabrera writes in an all-staff e-mail leaked to AdFreak. “Due to this highly mature act, building staff are regularly called in to fix this, and we are now faced with having major repairs done. Not only is this costing the Agency money, it’s highly inconveniencing both Agency and building staff. I’m hopeful that the person responsible will cease this stupidity immediately. If not, we’ll do our best to find out who you are and ensure you’re stuffing toilets at some other company. Thanks to everyone else for your patience.” Has now moved on to newspaper? This clearly is not your everyday gastrointestinal crisis. How long before Toilet Boy strikes again—or moves on to magazines? Has anyone else had to deal with this kind of problem at work?
