Law firm bans pooing at work, it's claimed
07 January 2011
A law firm in Leeds has been accused of banning its staff from doing number twos at work after a pipe burst in the recent cold snap.
The big freeze in the run-up to Christmas caused travel misery for millions, hypothermia for thousands: and crossed legs for dozens at Ford & Warren. A water pipe at the firm's office burst on 22nd December, apparently prompting an email to all staff asking that they refrain from depositing any solid waste in the bowl. Ewww...

In a triumph of lateral thinking, staff were apparently also asked to stop drinking water in order to reduce the amount of urine they would produce. Ingenious.
A spokeswoman for the firm eventually denied that staff had been asked to refrain from pooing or drinking water. But not before repeatedly failing to do so on the record. Hmmm.
