Sometimes, my co-workers suggest I should be the bathroom beat reporter.
Honestly, I can’t help the scatological nature of the things I notice.
First, there was this story, earlier this year.
And, of course, my ever-present fascination with people’s disgusting work habits.
But I hit the mother load recently following a late night jaunt (and I mean really late) through a Rutter’s convenience store.
I noticed something peculiar hanging on the bathroom wall. I had seen something similar once before at Walmart.
Ergo, this intrepid reporter found herself in the midst of a TREND STORY.
For you non-journalism types, a trend story is a type of journalism based on the idea that if something has happened more than once, it’s OBVIOUSLY a craze that’s sweeping the nation.
