An open letter to Mr Construction Dude

Dear Mr Construction Dude 
I resent having to walk down, then up, two floors, to pee. It’s already annoying having to walk to those cattle kraals (six in a row and you can hear if the other person is breathing) on the best of days so when you ensure that the one on my floor is out of order because you want to build or something, I will not be impressed.
Aside from the fact that I’m forgetful and am shocked every time I walk into a bathroom full of men, I now have to go to the Newspaper People’s toilets. Not cool. The newspaper people are not like us magazine people. They don’t like us. For some reason they think we don’t work as hard as they do.
Please Mr Construction Dude, get done with my floor’s bathrooms. I don’t want to walk that far even though my hip to waist ratio will surely thank you for it. I don’t want to walk out of the bathroom and end up on the wrong floor because I’ve forgotten I’m in someone else’s  lavatory. It’s just bizarre and people keep saying, “I haven’t seen you around here before.”
In a toilet, that’s a weird thing to be hearing.
So Mr Construction Dude…you have one week in which to finish the job. I’m giving you that much time. When I return from my trip I want to use the ladies’ room on my floor. That’s all I ask. It’s not much. 
Yours in the search for private loos
