Setting the bar high (as spotted by Corey in Winnipeg.)

Be sure to leave the bathroom/toilet pristine after use. Thank you.

UPDATE: A copy cat’s on the loose!

    Pristine’s usually the word I first associate with bathroom/toilet. But if the note-leaver really meant it, he or she’d have some gloves and a bottle of 409 conspiciously displayed on top of the towel dispenser.

    “pristine”? That’s demanding.

    please be sure to refill the paper towels when empty, make sure the towels are in pristine condition, thank you.

    That is THE SHINIEST, nee, PRISTINEST (not a word…?) paper towel dispenser I have EVER seen in a public restroom facility.

    Dang, my retinas hurt looking at it!

    (Yes, I’m the person who submitted the “pristine” sign… but not the person who posted it)

    This evening, the paper towels from that very dispenser, thanks to some overzealous teenagers,were emptied out all over the bathroom, including into the toilet.

    It’s really going to hit the fan at work tomorrow!

    Pristine? Jesus. I don’t think I’ve ever left anything “pristine”, certainly not a toilet.

    I always thought Pristine would be a pretty name for a proper little girl……

    [...] laura in boston says one of the restrooms at her school is a real note bonanza. the inside of the stall features no fewer than four individual notes about proper flushing etiquette, and immediately outside the restroom are two (slightly contradictory notes) about proper door opening/closing. but what’s most interesting? how a couple of those notes look awfully familiar… [...]
