OK, I know Hall Monitor lacks the usual overabundance of exclamation points, emoticons, and clip art, but I think it’s time to move her stuff out of the comments and up into a post of their own. With today’s offering I’d say she’s earned it.

I don’t think the Unitard would fit me, thanks. Crossing Guard, if I may ask, what was so trollish about my comment?
Oct 31, 2008 at 4:18 am rating: 3
My comment was intended as a passive aggressive stab at Hall Monitor, who always makes sure to post a reply to the first comment as to make sure that his/her web address is seen. I was simply mimicking, but my sarcasm was lost on anybody who has not been following the comments for the past week or so OR by those who have but don’t share my sense of humor.
You can’t imagine my mirth when I opened the comments last night and discovered NO post from Hall Monitor! So I left my snarky comment and thought for sure that Hall Monitor had stopped leaving comments.
No such luck.
The unitard was not intended for you by any means. It was meant solely for poster #1.3. Apologies for any confusion or hurt feelings.
Oct 31, 2008 at 10:25 am rating: 5
Oh, and it looks like my sarcasm was also completely lost on Hall Monitor, who still posted after my snarky 1.1.
Well, I am signing off as Crossing Guard and going back to my usual SN. If I can’t make a difference for Hall Monitor as a Crossing Guard, I fail. Miserably. =(

She took the standard 4 exclamation marks from the end of that sentence and moved them down to the last sentence. Obviously she is only allotted 20 exclamation marks per day, and carefully divided them out to emphasize the most important points in her essay.

Sometimes, it’s not even the hoverers who drip pee. Sometimes, it’s just nasty ladies who stand up to wipe and manage to dribble urine on the toilet seat AND the floor! When I walk into a stall and see pee drops on the floor in front of the toilet, I turn around and walk right out. How embarrassing would it be to slip on pee and knock yourself unconscious in a ladies room stall?

How To Use the Bathroom and Not Clean After Yourself
By: Nasty Lady
1. Enter restroom.
2. Choose a stall.
3. Drop trou.
4. Hover over toilet (public restrooms can be nasty, you know!)
5. Urinate, defecate or menstruate atop the toilet seat.
6. Wipe your nasty lady nether regions (or not).
7. Exit stall.
8. Wash your hands (or not).
9. Exit bathroom without cleaning after yourself.
That doesn’t seem so complicated, does it?
Oct 30, 2008 at 9:54 pm rating: 7
Where I work, some “ladies” have a hard time grasping the concept of flushing after use. It really sucks to go into a stall and see a blood-filled toilet with two-toned logs floating in it. That’s just nasty.
It’s even worse that I work for a government contractor.

How to Write a Passive Aggressive Note
1. Walk into bathroom.
2. Go into stall.
3. See disgusting site.
4. Retreat. Return to desk.
5. Open Word.
6. Type passive aggressive note. Be sure to type in capitals and use plenty of exclamation marks!!! People will pay more attention if you do this.
7. Ignore spell check. Fuck you little paper clip man, hygenical IS a word!
9. Affix to wall at the scene of the crime.
10. Return to desk. Be content knowing that you have helped to raise the hygenical standards of your workplace.

Dear Dirty Jobs,
I work at this office where every one is fairly normal and usually polite. I graduated from Oberline College where I was a Feminist Literature major. When I attended there we had a great toliet paper shortage, but I had never seen anything like what I recently saw at worrk. One day at my place of employment, I was horrified and reviled to see such a mess in the women’s lavatory. I posted the greatest informational sign that there was this digusting NASTY LADY and boy did I tell her…

She stinks like a nasty woman, yes she does

Having spent a lot of time cleaning washrooms (not my job but I would rather do it than have some other employee ordered to do it) in a “famous Canadian big box bookstore starting with C”, I can say that women are by far the messier.
However, when men are messier…. they go all out. I recall one poor male employee who was asked to go in after a customer complained that there was a “mess” in the Men’s washroom came out visibly shaken…. “Anneke, there were carrots EVERYWHERE! It was like a moose had been in there….”.
Once we had to call a plumber in when a toilet was blocked. He extracted a full set (tops and bottoms) of longjohns from the toilet that someone had flushed. A friend who works in a drugstore chain told me that the plumber extracted two cans of tuna (unopened) from the drain of one of their toilets. We guessed it was a shoplifter who was planning on stealing them but accidentally dropped them in the toilet. But why flush?????
We had people flush covers stripped from paperbacks they were going to steal.
As for messy women, we had a hooker who used to park her mother in our store while she did her business out in the market backing onto our store (when it was too cold to go outside, she was caught in the Fiction section conducting business a couple of times). The mother had some sort of incontinence problem and would go to the bathroom every 5 minutes and pee all OVER the place.
They were finally kicked out after the hooker let her little dog have a bath in the toilet. Why not when she was conducting business in the Fiction section, I don’t know. Unless it was because there was always the chance that her customer might spot a book he wanted to buy.
