A woman claims her boss put up a sign informing women employees they are only allowed to urinate in the office toilets so as not to "create a smell."

On Reddit, the woman shared a photo of the sign her workplace posted by the restrooms banning women at the office from pooping in the toilets.

"My [workplace] doesn't allow you to use a toilet as a toilet," her post reads, alongside a photo of the outrageous sign.

The sign reads:

"Ladies...This toilet is to be used for PEEING only. If you need to create a smell please use the Plaza toilets upstairs or the toilet across the road at Rydges!


Please have respect for your fellow workers."

"Bruh are you serious????" the employee captioned the photo.

In the comments section, OP [original poster] revealed she initially thought the sign was a "joke."

"I thought it was a joke… until they had sent out a very passive-aggressive email to everyone in the workplace about it," the woman wrote via Reddit. "This is so annoying! I've never had a workplace tell you that a toilet can't be used AS A TOILET! It's absolutely absurd! [A]nd all the women complain about it in such a childish way… it's always the same old, 'Whoever s--t in the toilet is so rude,' 'Did they not read the sign?!,' 'We have rules for a reason,' and stupid s--t like that."

In the comments, Reddit users were outraged by the workplace allegedly banning workers from defecating while at the office, slamming the sign as "ridiculous."

"Rip it off, what a sign," one person wrote.

"'Please have respect for your fellow co-workers' is so a--backward… I would make a public mockery of this sign. It's entirely ridiculous," another commented.

"3 times per shift I would loudly announce I NEED TO MAKE A SMELL and go wander off somewhere," someone else joked, while another user simply shared the old adage: "Boss makes a dollar, I make a dime, that's why I [poop]... on company time."

It's unclear if the men's restroom at the woman's office received a similar sign banning male employees from pooping in the toilets.
