Default I know we've discusssed this ad naseum here but...

why are women so nasty in the work bathroom? I go into a stall and there's a streak of red the length of the seat. ugh. next stall a mess. next stall open and used tampons hanging out of the receptable. ugh. It's just nasty.

OMG! It's the same way here! I am constantly amazed. And I'm constantly disgusted by the woman funk odor. What's worse is that there are signs in each stall to remind women to flush poperly.

It got so bad that I wrote an open letter from the anonymous "Women For a Remnant Free Toilets". Whatever, that didn't work either.

when women do stuff like that, i think it's deliberate.

i can't imagine how a woman's wiping routine could go so awry that she'd end up leaving a streak of "red" or any other color on the toilet seat or in the toilet. she did flush right? and assuming that she faced the toilet to flush with her foot, how could the red not catch her eye?

and as long as there is tissue on the roll, your tampons/pads should be wrapped first before disposing of them in the stall bins or trashcans.

i don't go as far as complaining about odor, after all, when you have to make a bowel movement at work, where else should you go? i just quietly turn around and find another restroom when i walk into a stinky bathroom.

but leaving skid marks. come on now. flush 2 or 3 times until all traces have disappeared. it's one thing to have to smell lingering odor. it's another to have to see the residue that someone else left behind.

our toilets are automatic flushers thank goodness but still there are times when things don't work right and there are remnants.

yesterday there were skidmarks.

Because some women are pigs.

The guys used to tell me horror stories of the men's bathroom in our office in NY, apparently someone would throw up in the sink at least once a week.

Our bathroom is a public bathroom, but it is always clean and tidy. I can't imagine the bathrooms y'all are talking about.

probably. and if i were a janitor and encountered a nasty-a$$ restroom, out of sheer frustration and hatred for the employees and my job, i'd probably do a quick spray and wipe too just to get out of there.

but if you are donned in your lavatory intergalactic hazmat suit like me, you won't have to worry about unsanitary conditions.

Aaaaah, but you're assuming she was using a tampon. Streaks can happen when a soiled pad accidentally touches the rim of the bowl, while you're sitting. If it's on the seat, up near the top, you can assume there was some blood that traveled toward buttocks.

But I totally agree with you that, if you turn around to flush, you can see the mess and wipe it.

Ha!

When I saw the title of this thread, I thought "oo, hope it's about poop!"

My boss (male) calls skid marks "scarring the bowl."

What always cracks me up is how men often have this notion that the lady's room is all dainty and delicate, with chaise lounges and little pillows scattered about, and perfume mists falling from the ceiling. If only!

The worst is when the stink escapes the room.
