Interesting trivia. In 1970 after cyclone Tracey devastated Darwin, many supplies ran out. Toilet paper was one of them.
It happens here every time there's a longshoreman's strike!

Maybe it's a feline complex!
Cats are strange critters. We had one once that had a hair curler phobia.

We figured it's DAMNED iPAD AUTO CORRECT!

Sorry. Let me try that again.

We figured its previous owner must have been a cruel woman who always had her hair up in curlers. His name was John. He was a really good cat, but had that one bizarre phobia.

We're moving offices at work, just my team basically moving to a new floor. I had to draw up the new seating plan.

Jesus, I couldn't be more unpopular if I'd broken into all of their houses and taken a big steaming dump on their dining table; while they were eating Sunday lunch!

Some people no longer have window seats, some are sitting next to different people, some are slightly further away from the kitchen area, some are sitting in essentially the same place just 10 feet lower. Whatever, they all now hate me with a passion. I may have to just sack one of them, pour encourager les autres!

Welp, yep, that's the main reason I left my last job.









Well not really, but it was part of it, we moved floors and from a bad situation to a worse one....



Sorry, good luck....they will eventually get over it or ...

Wow! Too bad you couldn't have done it without others knowing! Maybe you should let it be known that those that complain most/loudest get put next to the loo or whatever is the most repugnant location

Most people will complain about any kind of change. Unfortunately, you are their scapegoat. If you can suffer through it for a few weeks hopefully it will settle down once they get used to their new locations...or something else will happen to give them something else to complain about.

Good luck.
