  1. Re: It looks like the maintenance man had a fun time with my cologne collection.

    New posters, old members, etc. if you're that overly sensitive you need to either toughen up a bit, or step outside more often. I'd say the same exact thing directly to anyone/anywhere.
  2. Re: It looks like the maintenance man had a fun time with my cologne collection.

    You ever think that maybe he just knocked one over on accident, then politely tried to place things back in order to comply with your overly-anal nature?
