Public restroom? Or cesspool from hell....


You be the judge.

The restroom at work has taken on an all time low. Dried boogers wiped on the walls, flies buzzing overhead, overflowing trash can spilling out into the middle of the floor....

I have been in port-a-johns that were in better condition.

The sad thing is, we have a third party cleaning crew that 'supposedly' cleans these bathrooms EVERY SINGLE DAY.

Yah.... I'm going to say, NOT!

When the stench from the women's restroom makes your eyes water and your nose hairs curl, you've got a problem.

I was in my office talking to an employee when I happened to see a fly buzz past me and land on my wall.

"Oh my God! There is a fly on my wall!! What if it's one of the flies from the bathroom!!!"

The employee, also a woman, knew exactly what I was talking about and burst out laughing.

"Well, there's only one way to find out. I'll be right back."

I managed to scare the stupid thing out of my office, but I know it will be back. They always come back.

"Well?? Are the flies still in there?"

They employee had returned and she was still laughing.

"You're safe, the flies are still in the bathroom. Someone is going to have to put a fly strip up in there, I think they're multiplying."

Nothing says Million Dollar Company like a ladies room you can smell from twenty feet away and a swarm of flies to greet you at the door.

It's a sad state of affairs, I tell ya!

Happy Thursday!

    I am saddened to see any one have to work with this and if the truth be known it is cheaper all the way around if they are kept sparkling clean, and odor free. People tend to make less mess in a clean restroom, so end results is easier maintenance..
I don't ever recall a time when the ladies restroom was odor free.

    Quoting MrRareity:
    Do you mind if I ask what you do for a living, and where you work(type of place not name). Plain and simple that's gross, and I wonder if it's a safety violation. I'd fire the cleaning crew if they can't keep the bathrooms clean. A fly strip in the bathroom give me a break I'd complain until I'm blue in the face. The bathrooms should be clean like your house bathrooms are. Simple solution you work with pigs treat them like pigs or tell them to clean up their act or they can be replaced. At first I got a chuckle until I saw you weren't kidding.
I'm an administrative assistant but I work in retail. And, yes, it is a safety violation. You work in the medical field, so you know about the safe practices of cleaning up fecal matter and blood. This is why we hire a third party to do this. I sent yet another email to my boss on Friday when I received the email stating our store had been cleaned and sanitized by the cleaning company. I took a picture of the bloody booger that has been dried to the stall wall under the toilet paper dispenser for the past week and asked where they sanitized.

    Oh no…. No no no no no. Hell no. I’d have kicked up a huge deal with HR to get them to get whoever is supposed to keep that place clean, clean.
    Flies….in the office. Smell. Fuuuuuck no. I hope it gets sorted soon. Hey, if the gents is cleaner, just use theirs. I’m sure they won’t mind. Although I doubt theirs would be cleaner….😳
Believe me, I've complained. Taken pictures. Documented the disgust. The person who needs to do something about it just says "Well, if people want to be like this, they get to live with this." This doesn't help those of us who aren't like this.

    Normally it's the men's toilets - we say toilet not restroom here in the UK - that are always in need of a good clean. Things are bad where you work if it's the ladies' toilets that need a clean!
true story, over here, it's the ladies rooms that are always worse. I just don't get it.

    I say this as I fight with my company over a bathroom. My building doesn’t have one. One has to go next door to the closest building, 100 yards away. Not far you say? What about when it’s raining. Or in our 45mph dusty days. Know what else? No bathroom means no sink for hand washing. It’s not right. 😡
Oh yikes! No bathroom at all? How are they able to get away with that?

Oh I got 2.10 an hour but I move up quickly to vacuum and they hired other people to clean bathroom. I only had to do it if someone quit or call out of work. I did have fun with one girl in the big bosses bath room for awhile.

There are several stores down where you are.... Chances are, you may have already worked at one at some point if you've done any time in retail.

    I had a cleaning job during highschool at night.
    I had to clean up men's and women's rooms
    Have to say the woman's bathrooms where gross having rag bags to clean out. More cigarette but all over.
    I also was a cleaner at my old grammar school Catholic
    There I had to clean many bathrooms once again the girls room where dirtier and the writing on the inside of the stall walls made me lsooolo
I agree, the women't restrooms are always way worse than the men's restrooms. Not sure why, you'd think it would be the other way around, but it isn't. You couldn't pay me enough to clean bathrooms.

What's happening is the trash is not being taken out, including the sanitary receptacles in the stalls. It's a breeding ground and I'm completely disgusted.

I'll never understand how people can be so disgusting. I've complained to Boss #2 on more than one occasion about the bathroom conditions and she does nothing about it.

It's possible. Maybe I need to hang some fly strips in my office too.

We do not. Considering the way the break room looks most of the time, I don't think it would be an any better condition that the public one. I work with pigs.

Oh I've worked for a supermarket chain when I was younger and the ladies room was always the fourth ring of hell. I'd tell you why but some things are just gross to share. Fast forward to 2014 and I'm working for Walmart on a remodel. Again the ladies outdid themselves moreso than the men. It's one of the most curious conundrums I have ever faced
How could women be more vile than men at the way they leave a public retail bathroom?

Oh and I hate flies too.
