why are women so nasty in the work bathroom? I go into a stall and there's a streak of red the length of the seat. ugh. next stall a mess. next stall open and used tampons hanging out of the receptable. ugh. It's just nasty.

    Oh ick. I went into the public bathroom and someone had done a yooge #2 and didn't flush. Eeewww.

    OMG! It's the same way here! I am constantly amazed. And I'm constantly disgusted by the woman funk odor. What's worse is that there are signs in each stall to remind women to flush poperly.

    It got so bad that I wrote an open letter from the anonymous "Women For a Remnant Free Toilets". Whatever, that didn't work either.

    when women do stuff like that, i think it's deliberate.

    i can't imagine how a woman's wiping routine could go so awry that she'd end up leaving a streak of "red" or any other color on the toilet seat or in the toilet. :? she did flush right? and assuming that she faced the toilet to flush with her foot, how could the red not catch her eye?

    and as long as there is tissue on the roll, your tampons/pads should be wrapped first before disposing of them in the stall bins or trashcans.

    i don't go as far as complaining about odor, after all, when you have to make a bowel movement at work, where else should you go? i just quietly turn around and find another restroom when i walk into a stinky bathroom.

    but leaving skid marks. :shock: come on now. flush 2 or 3 times until all traces have disappeared. it's one thing to have to smell lingering odor. it's another to have to see the residue that someone else left behind.

    our toilets are automatic flushers thank goodness but still there are times when things don't work right and there are remnants.

    yesterday there were skidmarks.

    The guys used to tell me horror stories of the men's bathroom in our office in NY, apparently someone would throw up in the sink at least once a week.

    Our bathroom is a public bathroom, but it is always clean and tidy. I can't imagine the bathrooms y'all are talking about.

    I do too. But I don't trust that the janitors disinfect properly. Do they just wipe it so it LOOKS clean?

    probably. and if i were a janitor and encountered a nasty-a$$ restroom, out of sheer frustration and hatred for the employees and my job, i'd probably do a quick spray and wipe too just to get out of there.

    but if you are donned in your lavatory intergalactic hazmat suit like me, you won't have to worry about unsanitary conditions. :lol:

    Aaaaah, but you're assuming she was using a tampon. Streaks can happen when a soiled pad accidentally touches the rim of the bowl, while you're sitting. If it's on the seat, up near the top, you can assume there was some blood that traveled toward buttocks.

    But I totally agree with you that, if you turn around to flush, you can see the mess and wipe it.

    Ha!

    When I saw the title of this thread, I thought "oo, hope it's about poop!" :lol:

    My boss (male) calls skid marks "scarring the bowl."

    What always cracks me up is how men often have this notion that the lady's room is all dainty and delicate, with chaise lounges and little pillows scattered about, and perfume mists falling from the ceiling. If only!

    The worst is when the stink escapes the room.

    I cannot even describe the nastiness that I see on our floor's bathroom....it's just horrific.

    actually, i wasn't envisioning tampon or pad. i was thinking that she was wiping herself while squatting over the toilet and when she tossed her tissue behind her, some blood dripped from her body to the tissue to the seat before it landed in the toilet. but still, if she turned to face the toilet before flushing, how could she not see the accident she made?

    the streak looked to me like it had been smeared across the seat as if she had tried to clean it up but didn't finish the job. It was broad not stringy if you knwo what I mean. ugh.

    Some woman actually pooped on the floor in the bathroom at my last job. Another woman stepped in it by mistake. :lol: I have seen blood on the wall and on the floor. Do these women leave this stuff in their bathrooms at their homes? :?:

    Women are also nasty in the kitchen/breakroom at my work. I advised everyone at work yesterday that I didn't care how they kept their kitchens in their homes, but I refused to be subjected to that filth at work. I cleaned the microwave and I told them that if I found a spill or explosion of food left in it I would hunt the person down. If no one confessed to it I would have the contents of their stomach examined. They all laughed but knew I meant business. I am such an evil ****! :twisted:

    The bathrooms in my office building are DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    (So I use the one in the swanky hotel a few blocks away on my lunchbreak :oops: )
  • jennyfurrensjennyfurrens Posts: 708Registered Users
    I notice it in the University library. I think it's almost psychological. If you're in a place that isn't 'swanky' as CIBChristine said, then maybe people kinda 'let go' and make a mess cos they know it doesn't matter. I've yet to find a dirty toilet cubicle in a hotel or nice restaurant, because people there would feel embarrased doing it?

    Ok now I look like I'm trying to explain myself :lol: I am equally disgusted as you all at that sort of thing. My friend, in her anthropology course, said one of their assignments was to write a report on 'an enclosed public space'. Her friend did elevators and she did toilets. She said it was fascinating. In our library there is a trend of writing on the wall - but not just random stuff. Like a problem page where people come back and answer then say how things have gone 3 months down the line.

    Anyway I digress - I won't use an entire bathroom with many cubicles if someone's made a mess of one. It's just nasty. Oh how I long for perfumed ceilings and reclining sofas!

    YIKES! Unsanitary restrooms are one of my biggest phobias! I have nightmares about having to go and not finding an acceptable place. :shock: :cry:

    The public restrooms in my nightmares have every manner of disgustingness described here, as well as doorless stalls and water on the floor. AND they're often unisex (esp. with the doorless stalls). It's just too horrible...
  • jennyfurrensjennyfurrens Posts: 708Registered Users
    Speaking of water on the floor.... one of THEE worst public restrooms has to be the University Union on a friday night. One night they flooded so there was water 2 inches deep from one of the toilets but there was no where else to go and after a few drinks you NEED to go. my jeans were soaked up to my shins :? nasty.

    cleanse: OS shampoo. PureNuffStuff cleanser.
