Using a Dirty Public Restroom: Thanks for nothing.

So, in one of my very few (but completely necessary) excursions lately, I had to use a public restroom. I almost always have to use the bathroom when I’m out (which I already find annoying, trust me), but since my recent health issues, it’s a given.

Fast forward to my visit to the public restroom (I will refrain from naming the retail establishment for obvious reasons) at approximately 5:45 p.m. EST on Tuesday. This is what I was greeted with in the only empty stall (there were two):

Toilet in a Dirty Public Restroom"

Yummy, right? As you can imagine, there was really no way to make this toilet usable within the timeframe that I had to use the bathroom. So I kinda hopped around, waiting for the other stall to open up (which had a non-working lock, yay) and used that one, which was somewhat cleaner. All in all, a pretty dirty public restroom.

On my way out the door, I couldn’t resist taking a picture of this:

Please note that the associate in charge of restroom duty had initialed every entry for the entire evening (although I took the picture at 5:45 p.m.). Liar! You’re intentionally ignoring a dirty public restroom!

Possibly just as important, “the management and associates TAKE pride” (even though they clearly don’t), they don’t TAKES pride.

Grammar, folks. It matters. Almost as much as sanitation. I can barely tolerate a dirty public restroom but I seriously cannot abide poor grammar.

    Usually I find women who do this in public restrooms who squat over the seat because they don’t want to sit on the seat. I find it disgusting. They need to put some toilet paper down on the seat then. Cause you know that even a little boy wouldn’t make that much of a mess. How not cool.

    My husband took my daughter to the restroom and the only stall available was one that an employee just came out of. The employee did NOT flush the toilet, left a mess all over the seat and did not wash his hands. Needless to say my daughter (who is 2) wouldn’t go to the bathroom and my husband talked with the manager.

    It is moments like this when I am grateful for a very cooperative bladder. I rarely ever have to use the bathroom when I am out running around. Did you write the company? I would! Or at least send them this post. – Katy

    Wow..that is just beyond disgusting! I avoid public bathrooms at all cost..only in the most dire of situations will I use a public bathroom. That is one of the worst I have seen. My little sister knows of my aversion to public bathrooms and for my last birthday she got me a public restroom survival kit..its a little tin with a pair of rubber gloves, a seat cover and 2 antibacterial wipes. :) I know its gonna come in handy sooner or later.
