The website Government Executive, a site run by the National Journal that features news about federal managers and executives, reported that the officials at the Denver offices of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) were forced to send an email scolding those employees who decided to forgo the use of the bathroom facilities there.
In the email obtained by GovExec.com, EPA Deputy Regional Administrator Howard Cantor detailed "several incidents" of bathrooms being vandalized, presumably by employees. The email lists incidents of toilets clogged with paper towels and other vandalism. It also noted that that an "individual" was "placing feces in the hallway."
To figure out a way to address this childish behavior, the EPA decided to consult a "national expert" in "workplace violence." The expert, John Nicoletti, apparently warned the EPA that this behavior was likely to "escalate" into something worse.
