To all the women that use the Bathroom on the 3rd Floor…
This is something that has made me angry for a while now, and I guess because it’s Monday, I’m tired and grouchy because of daylight savings time, but I just needed to vent.
If you’ve ever been to the PST to pick up a prize or attend one of our awesome live lounge events, you know that you take the elevator up to the third floor and make a right when you get off the elevator. We’re not camouflaged, we actually have a big door that says 94.5 PST on it. Across the hall there are other tenants that rent that space. To be quite honest, I’m not sure what they do there, but almost everyone I have come in contact with has been pretty nice.
I don’t know what’s been going on over the past year, but our bathroom is a disgusting mess! It was redone within the past 5 years and it is a beautiful bathroom. But the way people treat it, is unacceptable. Maybe I was raised a certain way, but there are certain things I do not wanna see when I walk into the bathroom.
Let’s start off with the fact that there is ALWAYS toilet paper on the floor! Like why? If you drop some on the floor, pick it up! Also, some women who use our bathroom, don’t seem to be able to even get the toilet paper in the toilet after their done using it. Gross! No one wants to pick up your USED toilet paper!
Next is the issue of women not disposing of their feminine products accordingly. Come on ladies, there’s a little can next to the toilet, please put your products in there when you’re done. That includes wrappers too! The building managers are nice enough to provide us with tampons that sit on our counter, no one wants to see the wrappers sitting around.
If you sprinkle, when you tinkle, please be neat and wipe the seat. Does this even need an explanation? At least once a day, I walk into a stall that is covered in pee. We have seat covers to use if you don’t wanna sit on the toilet, and if you do sprinkle, wipe it up! I don’t wanan clean someone else’s pee off the seat and then sit on the toilet where it was. I do not wanna feel like I’m a frat party when I go to the bathroom!
I understand that sometimes your alarm doesn’t go off on time and you’re running a little late. Maybe you have to do your hair and make-up at work, but let’s make sure our foundation, eyeliner and broken hair ties are not laying on stop on the counter when you’re done. We have three sinks in our bathroom and paper towels right on it. Wipe your stuff up! I can deal with water on the counter (even that should be cleaned up), but make-up, hair that is not mine, (this actually makes me gag) and leaving broken hair ties on the counter has got to stop.
Last, but certainly not least, I know everyone poops, trust me, I use our facilities for that reason every day. But please, for the sake of everyone, go to the dollar store, buy a little bottle of air fresher and give a little spray after your done with your business. Also, a courtesy flush goes a long way! I used to keep a bottle in there, but one of my former co-workers complained that someone was overusing it. BUT hey, I would love to smell lavender instead of smelly poop.
This is an open letter to WHOEVER uses the bathroom on the third floor. It could be the people who work day in and day out at PST or it could be the people who work across the hall. I do not care who it is, BUT I am saying, that whoever uses the bathroom on our floor, treat it with respect! We are lucky enough to work in such a nice building and have a really nice bathroom. When we all clean up after ourselves, it will stay nice for everyone.
