A man in Tianjin, China was fired from his job after spending up to six hours a day in the lavatory at work

According to CNBCTV18, his company records revealed that within a span of a week, he visited the office lavatory a remarkable 22 times.

The employee, surnamed Wang, used the lavatory two to three times a shift.

The extended restroom stays ranged from 47 minutes to a whopping three hours, or 196 minutes.

According to South China Morning Post, the man first joined the company in April 2006, and has been working on a non-fixed-term labour contract since April 2013.

However, in December 2014, he was diagnosed with an anorectal condition which required him to have surgery.

Despite making a full recovery, Wang experienced persistent pains which led to his long-lasting toilet breaks.

Eventually, in September 2015, his company decided to let him go due to his frequent absenteeism, tardiness, and tendency to leave work early.
