This Ain't No Joke

When my team first moved to this building, the women's bathroom in our area smelled like ass. Get it? Yeah, it really rotted. It had a chemical smell to it that was overpowering.

At one of the team meetings, I brought it up to my team leader, a somewhat dirty old man. Here's the conversation that followed:

TL: Everyone's found their way around here? Bathrooms, cafeteria, meeting rooms? Any problems with anything?
KtP: Um...well, there is one thing. The bathroom kind of smells.
TL: (Laughs) And what do you want me to do about that? Ban beans from the cafeteria?
KtP: No, it really smells. Like chemicals.
TL: You're serious?
KtP: I'm very serious! The bathroom smells, like...well, like natural gas.

And it really did
