On Architecture and Usability

I'll leave you all to imagine the rest, but I wouldn't have had this insight were it not for major building work going on in the office at the moment.

Dear Architects

When designing a building, please do not swap over the gender of the toilets between floors. We, the mere users of your creation, will assume they will be on the same side of corridors as we are used to.

Thank you.
