The wrong side of the door

Guess who just asked his struggling company, which is planning layoffs, to spend money on him?

That's right, this guy. And in perhaps a good sign as far as the layoffs go, my company is working on a solution.

We rented some unused office space to a tenant, which is good, and they are building a door to separate us and the tenant, which is fine.

But what is not good or fine is that the six-stall bathroom with an accessible door will be on the tenant's side of the locked door.

I will still have the small two-stall restroom, but folks already use the wheelchair stall there. (They use the wheelchair stall in the big bathroom, too, but rarely.)

I got the email about the building plans, and immediately replied to my boss, the sender and others that I need a backup restroom with an accessible door. I am sure it will be settled OK, but it is just something else to worry about.

OK...that is the stupidest thing I have ever heard of. Do we need to sic someone on them? And while we are at it...what about the new post office? Every time I go in there the lack of automatic doors pisses me off.

yeah, what she said. i'll come down there as back-up. i can kick em with my orthopedic boot and knock em over the head with a crutch.

but seriously, good on you for standing up for yourself, especially when you feared for your job. a lot of people wouldn't have it in them.

i think one solution might be to put a lock on the handicapped stall that only you have a key to.

If I ever get to be an executive, I won't need a big salary or private plane. I would love a private restroom, however.
