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):
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.
