Wipe the seatie

Sometimes the littlest things gross me out. Today was one of those days.

There probably isn't anything worse than a nasty public restroom, but when it is your office restroom you expect it to be a little cleaner and a little nicer. When I worked on a different floor this was the case, but now I think people have lost all manners on my new floor.

Time after time I go into the bathroom notice that people do not clean up after themselves, at all.

My mom once told me this story about how, I believe it was, my great-grandmother or my great-aunt had a hand-stitched picture of a sign in the restroom that said...

"When you tinkle,
if you sprinkle,
be a sweetie
and wipe the seatie."

After walking into the bathroom I am seriously considering hunting down a sharpie and making not-so-nice nice posters to hang on each stall. Let's quit being gross people! Not too mention if they can't wipe the seat, do they wash their hands?

On a side note:

I went to the Big 12 Tournament Title Game on Saturday and got a kick out of going to the bathroom and seeing all these men do the pee-pee dance while standing in a ridiculously long line. I have never seen a men's restroom line that long. But, I was in and out in about a minute time. I really wish I had a camera to capture that Kodak moment.

Haha, they had they sign above the potty at my old job. Too bad people were too stupid to read.

...But yeah, the job I have now...which is a HOSPITAL...the restroom makes me want to hold it until I go home.

At a company I used to work for, it got so bad that HR sent a note out to all the female employees about bathroom cleanliness. Yuck. Some people are just GROSS.

I once held a 2 week conversation with someone via writing on a stall. We used pencil. It was the cleanest (and most hidden) stall at Emory. It was also on a floor with all women (it was the men's room). Good times.
