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.

What!

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

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.

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

That`s socialism for you. Since nobody has any incentive to work, companies have to resort to ridiculous methods like this to keep people from slacking off all day.

No jokes. That`s just stupid. I agree with Penguinazul about the 7th grade part, but I would just wear the bracelet all the time. Then, wait for someone to ask me to prove it. Just ask! I`ll show you, sure!

I`d suck it up and wear the bracelet. Who gives a crap if I`m on my period? It`s a natural thing that all women go through. If you can`t handle it, then you need to go back to the 7th grade.

Wait! We men can do that? I thought it was to...you know...give us ample warning, perhaps he is just coverying up the real reason for it.

I agree with Wundt`s post.

Why not have Human Resources send an e-mail.

Sample message:

Subjet: Bathroom usage

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

Regards,
Human Resources

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.

Why, some men clam to be tough and manly, and when it comes to blood sliding down labia and a little bit of extra attitude a few days a month, they become whining pussies and need to be told LOUD AND CLEAR THIS WOMAN IS A PERSON AND SHE MAY BE OFFENDED OR ANGRY OR EMOTIONAL FOR REASONS YOU CAN`T UNDERSTAND BECAUSE YOU DON`T SEE HER TRAIN OF THOUGHT. Bwahaha.

The hatch is that when PMS kicks in, just mentioning it makes it 100 times worse.

And women think they`re rational.

I wish they`d had this at my last office job - me in a department of eight women. Hmm, which two do I not talk to this week? The string would`ve helped me avoid unintentionally lighting the fuse of many a tampomb.

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?

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.

There is a great suggestion in the comments of the article that maybe people who have diarrhea should wear a brown bracelet to justify their frequent trips to the loo.

sethene, ive never had a friend or gf, that had a period go that longer than 7 or 8 days. so 8 being the average is news to me. but i was really referring to just the few days when PMS takes full affect. if you PMS throughout your whole period, i am sorry.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.
