- Works toilets etiquette (again)
Right you lot – be honest now. If you had a catastrophic no.2 that painted the pan, would you make good the damage using the toilet brush?
I realise a communal toilet brush is the not the most desirable object to pick up but a thorough hand wash afterwards and all’s well.
Personally, I would clean off after myself but it would appear that I’m in the minority where I work. Most mornings, the traps resemble sacrificial chambers for brown blooded goats.
I believe in leaving things as I’d like to find them.

Our toilets used to be grim but were refurbished last year. Unfortunately the new ones were still being left as described so I printed off some posters off the web about cleaning up with a brush for the back of the trap doors. Things still aren’t 100% but they have improved a lot.Posted 5 years agoz1ppyMember
brush.. it what it’s there for, but I do keep it in there & flush again to clear any tagnuts off it!Posted 5 years ago
I really struggle with how ppl are willing to leave the toilet in a reall mess, after they’ve used it. Shirely they must be disgusted if they came in and found it like that..spawnofyorkshireSubscriber
You can always tell when the building contractors are in at my work, those blokes are absolute animals.Posted 5 years ago
One of them decided to use the toilet for a catastrophic no.2 yesterday despite the water being shut off in the building. BTW he was the engineer who’d come in to fix the water pressure problem 🙄
The stench was horrendous and the cleaners nearly mutiniedj5kolMember
I once worked at a place where we had frequent visitors from Asia. You always knew if one was your neighbour whilst on the throne, all you could hear was what can only be described as a bucket of spuds being dropped into the pan from great height. Those boys definitely dont sit for a numero deuxPosted 5 years agoteamhurtmoreMember

To be treated as a badge of honour and left in situ
Perhaps there should be an age threshold here. School and Uni versus work and adult life? But I also wonder how people are able to deliver the mess they leave behind. Seems a physical impossibility.Posted 5 years agoorganic355Member
Speaking of toilet etiquette at work.
3 urinals, all free, you go to the end one right?
Walked in a few seconds behind a colleague and he positions himself at the middle on of the 3, giving me no option but to use the cubicle.
Isnt this just the rules?
however, if in the pub after work, these rules can be broken.Posted 5 years ago
At my work the new men’s loos have no urinals. Stalls only
Have that at one of my clients offices. A big corporate campus and they only have 4 gents stalls on each floor (of probably about 200-300 people) of each building. The queues can get ridiculous. If you’re touching cloth you really can be in trouble!Posted 5 years agolilchrisMember
Single bog at work.
The owner regular leaves shit in the pan, piss on the floor (next time he goes in its miraculously dry, but the towel is soaked through 😯 ), but new low was last week when there was shit on the flusher handle 😥
Just as well he didn’t put any paperwork on my desk that day. I’d have had to burn……the desk!!!Posted 5 years agotreaclespongeMember
I have to agree with the female No2. However in on building we have a specific disabled toilet which can only be occupied one at a time. They all use this for any No2 action. None of them appear to have realised the fact that they are just making it even more obvious. Except for one who leaves the door ajar afterwards to air it out…Posted 5 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember

When working in offices in APAC (Notably Singapore and HK), make sure you remember to pick up the key the traps on your way. Otherwise, it’s a hasty stroll back to your reception desk to pick it up!Posted 5 years agopondoMember
I knew a girl who wouldn’t poo in the house if her boyfriend was there. 🙂
I also recall a story about a former work colleague* – another colleague was mailing a package and the cubicle next to him became occupied with someone involved in the same activity. Once it was done, my friend flushed and was washing his hands when our other mutual colleague also finished, but flushed and immediately departed withOUT washing his hands – when challenged, he said he didn’t need to wash his hands as it was a clean poo. Make of that what you will.
* Hygene was a known issue with him – why they picked him to make the tea, I have no idea, I wouldn’t drink anything he made…Posted 5 years agomolgripsSubscriber
I heard someone wondering why they put bog brushes in public toilets, because you couldn’t be expected to clean the bowl after yourself – that’s horrific, they pay people to do that!
Well, yes, but they don’t pay people to hang around and come in to clean it after every customer.. at least not where I go they don’t.
It’s amazing how dim some people are.Posted 5 years agoPJM1974Member

I work in a well known arts organisation. One month a new lass started, who was by common consent the epitome of female perfection, tall, dark and effortlessly, ridiculously pretty.
Not long after, the eligible bachelors in the office fell out over a rather pungent smell that seemed to emanate from the office lavs and there were worries that said office hotty might be offended by the sheer offensiveness of the stench in question, so bad it was. A witch hunt for the perp was duly convened.
Meanwhile, the stenches grew in intensity, to the point that you’d detect them from two floors away. Someone had very poorly, angry bowels, we were amazed that the lav tiles remained in situ, rather than melting off the walls, so the search for the log-monster because more urgent. All the chaps denied knowledge, right up until the said hotty exited the bathroom followed by a pungent green fog.Posted 5 years ago
