In the realm of public-restroom etiquette, everyone has heard of the “courtesy flush”. This week, I decided to institute a “courtesy non-flush”. I was using the urinal and heard a co-worker on a phone call in the stall behind me. Rather than risk embarrassing him and/or the person on the other end of his call, I refrained from flushing, and ran the water in the sink quietly on my way out of the bathroom.

So, you’re welcome, mystery co-worker.
