Is this kindergarten, or a federal agency? Instead of engaging in spats with landowners across the country focusing on doing their jobs, administrators at the Denver office of the Environmental Protection Agency now have more a immediate threat to combat: a lapse in potty training among their employees.

According to emails obtained by Government Executive, management at the office has been forced to send emails pleading with their employees to stop intentionally clogging toilets with paper towels and leaving feces in the hallway.

That's right: poop, in the hallway.

Via Government Executive:

Confounded by what to make of this occurrence, EPA management “consulted” with workplace violence “national expert” John Nicoletti, who said that hallway feces is in fact a health and safety risk. He added the behavior was “very dangerous” and the individuals responsible would “probably escalate” their actions.

The EPA insists it is taking this matter very seriously and has asked anyone with knowledge of the incident to come forward.

You know, we always had suspicions that bureaucrats were a little childish, but this right here is solid proof.

Sorry, EPA, but the American public will continue to not take you seriously. Your employees poop in the halls.
