What if the answer to all of life's problems was as simple as... anonymous sex in bathrooms? DeWitt imagines a wild and satirical business world in which chronic sexual harassment, productivity, and time management issues are all solved by the dreams of a door-to-door salesman with an obsession with disembodied legs.
