We all know that one co-worker who loves giving you the latest details on her love life from the next stall over. Or that one co-worker who just can’t stop himself from using the urinal right next to you when there are clearly other available ones.

Here, we present to you the ultimate guide for being professional even on your field trips to the loo. And yes, we highly encourage you to passive-aggresively share the infographic with any co-workers who are in serious need of this information.
