    What happens if they spot? Or if they are late? Or if they have an extremely long flow? OR what happens if they don`t have periods? Some women who are too skinny or too overweight do not have regular periods and this could be misinterpreted as pregnancy. Then you know WAY too much about people.

    I think we should have the boys be tagged with a brown string everytime they have the poos or better yet, a white string when they go masterbate. Or a blue string for wet dreams.

    Women are different from men. Especially in this regard.

    Shouldn`t you treat people who are different differently for the simple reason that they are indeed different?

    Sounds good, i`ll know who not to shake hands with. It would be funny seeing as guy slipping on a white bracelet after speaking with a co worker. Bit disturbing aswell.

    Dear cobrakiller (if that is your real name)
    I created this account like a zillion years ago, and then never used it. I`m usually very lethargic about everything. However, I just had to point something out...3-5 days?
    Where did you go to school? Cause they lied to you.
    A normal period can last up to 8 days.
    Plus (little fun fact coming up) I know a girl who`s got a condition which means that she is constantly on her period, like 24/7. Would she have to wear a bracelet all the time?
    My actual point is though, it`s a goddam terrible idea.
    Fin.

    It would be confusing if you practiced Kabbalah.
    I don`t think this is TOO uncommon though... in some cultures women will wear white beads for `all clear` and red beads for `do not pass go, do not collect $100`. But that`s private info for their lovers and not for the workplace.

    Women, this is good for you! Think about it.

    With this kind of warning sign, men would be more careful around you when you are least in the mood for our tomfoolery.

    Maybe instead of red wristbands, red shock collers. Just in case you get too far out of control.

    I disagree completely with the bracelet thing...

    However, I know that some people DO use bathroom breaks as a way to avoid work. I will even admit that I have done it. It is sad that the managers cannot handle this a little more delicately. If a specific person is spending too much time in the WC, they should be talked to privately.

    That said, I still think smokers are far worse problem. In the high-rise where I worked, going outside was a 5-10 walk, meaning each smoke break was 20+ minutes.

    The company wouldn`t have done this if it weren`t for some employees ****ing off in the bathrooms.

    If the employees don`t like it, they should quit. Then the company could only hire desperate people who are too incompetent get a job with a better employer, and eventually the company will go broke.

    BTW, **** = goof. What were you thinking?

    Presumably employees with a touch of...digestive imbalance...would have to wear a brown bracelet to show that they have a valid excuse for using the toilet for longer than whatever amount of time the overseer decrees is allowable. Yellow if you have a UTI.

    Any more suggestions? I`ll collate them and pass them on the Norwegian National Board of Bizarre Over-Reaction in Business.

    According to our accounts you have spent X hours in the bathroom which has costed the company $XXXX. Can you please explain why?

    i don`t think this is acceptable and we can say "fine, i`ll do it. no prob. it`s natural". it`s like saying "hey my vagina is bleeding today and my panties are covered in blood. there`s a constant blood-flow through my vag, in fact, it`s bleeding even right now when i`m saying these. my hole is extra red today and i wouldn`t let you drat me there because it`s also extra sensitive now. but that`s okay because i`ll be drating horny in a couple of days, so it would increase your chance to get laid if you call me tomorrow or the day after tomorrow."

    if you can still think it`s okay then you might wanna try telling all of these to your coworkers one day, since it wouldn`t be a problem for you to wear a bracelet that represent these words

    KPres, forgetting the idiotic "socialism" comment... if you want people to value a job and work hard to keep it.... Pay Them More.

    There`s a limit to what I`ll do for low pay.
    But I`ll kiss your dog`s ass for a higher pay scale.

    No one values a low-paying job.

    @ KPres

    What!

    So, its all down to the economic system (very much doubt it`s socialism), nothing to do with this guy being a dick?

    @kimkio

    I would wear a bracelet that said all that to my co-workers. Heck, I`d full out say that to my co-workers if I knew I wouldn`t get the banhammer.

    Then again, I would do a lot of other things sane people wouldn`t. This probably reflects poorly on my character.

    Maybe this whole post was counter-productive.

    :(
