This coworker just might be an infuriating genius! According to the Redditor, he got a medical note from his doctor saying he had IBS and now, no one can say anything when he spends virtually the entire workday in the bathroom. Allegedly, the coworker isn’t in any actual serious need but would rather mess around on his phone on the toilet for 6 hours than sit at a desk staring at a screen. Honestly, as I write this, I can’t blame him.
This story was captured via this thread on Reddit’s r/antiwork subreddit by u/stonerplumber, who went on to describe what happened when a nosy, Dwight Schrute type tried to get the coworker in trouble by timing how long he was in the bathroom and reporting it to HR. Not only was HR not able to do anything about it, but also the nosy employee got written up. Somewhere in that bathroom, our clever coworker is laughing maniacally.
