- Microsoft / EngUllflfhjgdA girl was doing coke in the bathroom.... the rest of us kept pointing out how terrible her work had gotten, but they never enacted the random drug testing clause of our employment contract. The handicapped bathroom had a separate walled room with a locking full height door inside of the general bathroom,. She was able to hide pretty well, until one day she forgot to lock the door and a director went to use that bathroom, as the stalls were full. They actually had security and police haul her away.... This was before my swe days.
