Why?


Does he really think this is going to keep his ass safe? The bigger question might be why the dude decided to leave his artwork behind. Is he that proud of his creation? At least he flushed, unlike the dude who used the adjoining stall. That one was ripe. Sadly, this is the closest john to my office, one that I am forced to share with the unwashed public, and I use that term loosely, as the sinks here double as foot-washing fixtures. (I know, certain cultures place great value on regular foot washing, but it doesn't please me to see a man with one foot in the sink, soon to be followed by the other).

And then there's the spitting. The sinks are often coated in it. No one flushes the urinals and the toilets are often not flushed, so it usually stinks. There is always toilet paper on the floors. Many men seem to prefer peeing in the privacy of a stall, and I have yet to encounter a single man in this bathroom who has the courtesy to lift the seat. As a result, the seats are usually covered in piss.

Naturally, I normally travel to a different floor to use a bathroom. What I really want to do is post a Bathroom Etiquette sign. Even the staff bathroom on a different floor has sign above the urinal asked the men to flush after use. If you have to ask staff to do this, you have a problem. Public washrooms are disgusting, but you didn't need me to tell you that, did you?

I worked at a Burger King when I was in high school. Those bathrooms were horrible.

That's a great picture though. Some people...

LMAO! That looks just like one of my mother's creations! When SME was little, she told me I was a bad mother because I didn't line the seat with paper. I got the last laugh as SME grew up to be a totally healthy adult even though her bottom came in contact with many public toilet seats.

Declining toilet etiquette is a sign of the Apocalypse. I say, we deserve to be wiped off the face of the earth if we can't even be considerate to others in a damn bathroom.

They are horrible ZF. I hate going into public restrooms or those port a potties they use on the Fourth of July down town. Yuckie..

Hey, I thought only chicks did the seat-papering thing! Like my mom mentioned, my grandmother was a master craftsman of that particular trade.

See, I told you SME was still alive. ;)

Serves you right for being male. Everyone knows that boys are gross. I think the seat-peeing thing is to mark your territory. So that when a woman tries to use the men's washroom (because the girl's line-up is ridiculous), she's put off by the funny smell.
