No, not to be too crude about this, but one of the worst things about my job is that fact that I have an office next to the toilet. Now in a modern building this probably wouldn't be too bad - but my work is in an old converted house (you know the kind - the attic floor is like an oven in summer, freezer in winter, and there seems to be no happy half-way) and my room is literally completely adjacent to the toilet. There's only really one offending person (not Rosie the dog as some may think - although she has produced some quite awful smells, and still thinks you'll want to rub her tummy! [yes, it is a real dog - boss's collie - she joins us when noone else is at home in the day and there's risk of mauled furniture]) and it was quite terrible today...oh dear.
