Today, I'm working for a company that makes over a million dollars a year, yet leaves me with no choice but to pee in a cup because they won't pay to fix the only toilet in the building. FML

A million dollars a year even in profits isn't that much for a company you need to consider that they have to pay rent, employees, taxes, utilities, merchandise, advertising, and they have to support their family as well so after all that is factored out maybe they can't afford to fix it

I dunno, if they're stingy enough they won't mind in you pee on their plants then

It seems to be a common thing that those with more money don't want to spend it on the necessities

That would help lower the water bill. Also, we can offer them free fertilizer for extra savings.

That would be acid rain for the poor plants #2

I could've sworn you said pants

Well you hopefully aren't the only one who sees this as an issue, time to talk to HR

or take it to the BBB

I would make a call to the state dept of labor.

or go straight to OSHA

The corporate ladder at its best!

More like corporate bladder!

I think OP works at the Krusty Krab, great business, but a stingy boss.

Have you reported this? Maybe possibly consider working for another company that cares for their employees :c

What do your coworkers and visitors and clients do? You can't really be the only person that thinks this is a problem.

Profit is minus expenses. If what she means is truly profit, then they have more than enough to make a $100 repair.

If they can't afford to fix the plumbing, maybe they shouldn't really be in business in the first place. :c

seems like there'd be regulations stating they have to have working plumbing...

#7 exactly what u was thinking. In today's economy a million dollars is not a lot of money. Especially if they only make one million dollars a year only a percentage of that is profit.

Exactly my though. Net income is way different than revenue.

I think #7 meant to say revenue not profit.

"Exactly what *I* was thinking" is what I meant to say. I have fat fingers and am awful at proofreading.

toilet parts are cheap. there's no excuse for this. I live in a dumpy ass trailer and I can afford to fix a toilet.

I really hope there are laws against this where you live.

Get a jug, I hear it's more efficient

Sink works, too. Plus, heated bidet, if you're crafty enough!

Can't you go to a bathroom near by?!

So, you want OP to leave work, wander until they find another bathroom, use it, and come back to work? I hope OP is lucky and finds one less than a minute away, provided they actually let her out.
