A "Breach of Toilet Etiquette" or BTE may occur in a public or office environment where you can find adjoining cubicles.
A BTE is classified as any incident that does not comply with the "Suitable Hospitality In Toilets" guidelines.
Common breaches of toilet etiquette include speaking on a mobile phone while in a cubicle, speaking to a person in an adjoining cubicle, or entering a cubicle from which another person has just walked out (especially where the flush cycle is incomplete, toilet seat warm or other cubicles are available).
Other known examples of BTEs include:
- Multiple persons leaving adjoining cubicles at the same time' and
- Leaving toilet paper on the seat at the conclusion of the 'business'.
