    back when I was living with my folks one of my sisters had a house party and someone flushed her used napkin down the toilet

    but I guess that's nothing compared to the time someone puked huge chunks in the urinal in my friend's bar.

    This one's a little strange: there's a guy whose job it is to take care of the bathrooms for maybe 20 floors (just one or two Gents per/floor). He checks for 'spills', replaces burned out light bulbs, fills the soap dispensers, changes the TP, monitors urinal cake disintegration and cleans up the sinks. You'll see him a couple of times of month on the various floors that he services, doing a lousy job w/ a smile on his face, accompanied by the little supply cart that he pushes around. Over the years I've seen him dozens (hundreds?) of times, some times in 'his place of work', but also in the hallways alll over the building as he goes from floor to floor. Now here's the strange part - for the past week or so, on my first visit to the bog to let out some coffee he is in there (the only men's room on our floor) but he's not working - he's availing himself of the facilities and taking a leisurely break as he reads the paper and noisily stinks up the joint. I know it's him b/c his little cart is parked in front of the sinks and you can see his big workboots peaking out from under the stall as he thrashes his way through the Post. I don't begrudge a man a trip to the can but it is not a large BR and with his cart parked in front of the sinks and him tying up 33.3% of the sh!tter capacity I'm starting to get a little annoyed. What made him decide to park himself daily on our little corner of the world? You'd think he'd 'stop' wherever he happened to be at the time when nature calls, but it seems like he has chosen our floor as his 'home base'. Is it wrong to ask him to at least leave his cart outside if he's there 'on his own time'? :confused:

    I didn't consider this, but somehow I really doubt it.

    Next time he's in there take his cart out and leave it in the hallway. He'll get a clue sooner or later.

    The woman who does the bathroom cleaning on my floor at work is young and Spanish. She does an incredible job, everything is always super clean, but I think she might hate her job, and specifically "the white man". She always talks to this Spanish speaking woman in my office who I work with, but anytime I try to smile at her or say anything she always has a puss on her face. I mean I can't blame her for not jumping for joy at work, but I give her tons of credit for doing a great job. I think I will ask my coworker what her deal is (they talk in their native tongue).

    There's always the negative Nancy regardless of race, class, or position in the company. I've worked with several white collar IT and finance folks who couldn't take a complement if their life depended on it. When "hey, great job on that project/spreadsheet/toilet scrubbing" begets a "well I worked all night on it" or "it was busy work anyways" you know who I'm talking about.


    Update on the mystery pooper in the middle stall: He's still doing it, and I haven't been able to catch him. But I've got 2 other people on the look out. We'll catch him sooner or later. He's got mysterious stealth abilities, no one has even seen him come or go.

    Similar situation here - I feel almost compelled to thank them because they make it spotless multiple times a day as part of a thankless job no one wants (fyi:I cleaned bathrooms as part of a my first job as grocery bagger; I'll note that public bathrooms versus office ones are worse). But I get the sense they don't want to be seen - like no eye contact - so you don't recognize them outside of the office as "oh, that's the lady who cleans our toilets". Just my hunch. It would be awkward, but these are the people we should be tipping...

    She is from the Dominican Republic. I actually talked to a coworker who is also from the Dominican Republic who speaks to her a bit and she said that she is very shy, nervous, and paranoid she is going to lose her job. Like apparently her boss is very strict and she doesn't want to make it like she is slacking off. We had food in the office for something or another and my coworker offered her some cookies or something to take when she was leaving and she refused and said a bunch of stuff in Spanish. Apparently she didn't want to take it because her if her employer saw it he would accuse her of stealing them. My coworker said she just seems very neurotic and shy essentially. It is funny the conversation I was having around it in my head was she just hates teh whites.
