The bathroom-stall booger epidemic

August 11th, 2009 · 142 comments

Who knew? Apparently, every office has at least one person with an insatiable need to spread the contents of their nose on the wall.

From Florida:

Hey Boogermeister, This isn't a gas station in Hazzard County; this is a place of work. How about blowing your nose in a tissue like most evolved humans, instead of picking it and wiping it all over the place? Your cooperation is much appreciated.

From Georgia:

The Wall — Good For: Holding up the Ceiling. Not Good For: Wiping your boogers

From a hospital (!) in Washington, D.C.

Is this your booger collection? If so please consider taking it down and back home with you (or are you walls simply too full of your snot by now?). It is clear that you have some personal hygiene self-respect issues that you need to resolve. Please seek appropriate counseling and follow up.

And another hospital in Pennsylvania:

Whoever wipes the Boogers on this wall please stop! It is disgusting! Use the toilet paper right Beside you! thanks!

From Utah:

Attention Everyone: No slobs on this floor. Don't wipe your damn bugers [sic] on the wall!!!!!!!

From Montana:

To whomever is wiping their nose residue (boogers) on the wall in front of the urinal: KNOCK IT OFF. USE SOME TISSUE.

From California:

n.b. - this is not an elementary school bathroom. You are a bad person for affixing the contents of your nose on the wall. Stop!

from Minnesota:

Do not put boogers on the walls. It's extremely gross and disturbing, especially when it's done in a public place like work. (you should be old enough to use a Kleenex and put them in the trash)

from Texas:

POST NO BOOGERS

from Ohio:

PLEASE STOP FINGERPAINTING WITH THE CONTENTS OF YOUR NOSE

And even in Denmark:

[Submitter Latrine's rough translation: Won't you be kind and wipe your boogers off in a piece of toilet paper instead of on the walls/kind regards the janitor]

Won't you be kind and wipe your boogers off in a piece of toilet paper instead of on the walls/kind regards the janitor

    It’s interesting how they all assume they are using their fingers to wipe the buggers…

    The Abercrombie and Fitch sign might be a little too sophisticated to get it’s point across effectively, considering the people who shop there. It uses some awful big words.

      It’s definitely more professional than the other signs (see where it uses the Abercrombie & Fitch logo instead of clip art) but maybe that’s because they don’t want their customers/employees to forget where they are when they’re in the bathroom.

      For some reason it reminded me of an old Ad Council psa. But the slogan isn’t quite as catchy as “A mind is a terrible thing to waste,” or “You could learn a lot from a dummy.”

      I think they’re trying to give the impression that even the bathroom in A&F is classy and should be respected, but ya you’re right. I think that’s going to be lost on the kind of person that wipes boogers on walls.

      We actually have a guy here at work that does that.

      He thinks he’s being so sly about it when he picks his nose and then wipes it under the circulation desk. *shudders*

      And he complains when we practically hose down the circ desk with sanitizer.

      True story…one morning last week, while stuck in morning traffic on the freeway, a woman in the car next to me picked her nose, regarded the prize, and popped her finger into her mouth!
      I know people view their cars as private space, but please folks, invest in tinted windows if you have boogers-on-the-go for breakfast.

    Tsk, tsk. Isn’t it sad how many people have forgotten the simple “Use a kleenex when removing things from your nose” lesson? It was right after the “Don’t take things from a communal fridge that have someone else’s name on it” lesson, and right before “Don’t diss your boss on FB” lesson.

    OMG. Vomit. The pictures of the actual boogers were not necessary. Speaking of boogers, in 4th grade this kid named Harlan that sat next to me used to pick his nose with a straw and blow the other end of the straw so the snot shot onto my skirt. Mmm, delicious.

      Speaking of boogers, I’m disappointed at the low amount of creative euphemisms in the signs.

      “dam bugers” – had it not been a typo, would have been most creative and most intriguing. alas a kind stranger with a pencil corrected it.
      “nose residue” – decent, but lost points for adding boogers in parenthesis.
      “contents of your nose” – reminds me of my grandma’s lectures. and her yard stick.
      “fingerpainting…” – by far the most creative, but someone got paid for it.

      I’ve never been comfortable with the word “booger” or any of its apparently many forms. I always thought it was some kind of (childish) euphemism myself.

      I thought the sign that said “dam buger” was actually “dam bugler” at first. At least it would have made a bit of sense… how do you misspell booger anyway?

      I was wondering about that third pic, though. It looks like there is a yellowed rectangle in that area–maybe where an old sign used to be–that hasn’t been cleaned along with the rest of the wall. Maybe the yellowed lumps are actually globs of old glue? Or maybe whoever took down the sign exposed a horde of snot from days gone by.

    So, okay, I shouldn’t cop to this….but I used to stick my boogers on the wall. Here’s why.

    The bathroom, at my college, was filthy. There was always at least one live, large roach, and several dead ones. There were little shit smears under the tp dispenser. There was standing water on the floor. For three months there was a little family of distinctive moth-flies that I never saw anywhere but the bathroom.

    So I stuck the first booger on the wall to see how long it would last. Seriously, it was there for months. I wondered if anyone had noticed. So I added another and another, a little family of sickly fascinating snots. They were still there when I graduated, and, odds on, they are still there today. And, yes, everyone still uses the filthy bathroom.

    It never would have occured to me to paint the walls green if they hadn’t been covered in hazmat already–makes me wonder what condition these BRs were in.

    People wiping boog on the wall in a bathroom is especially baffling because bathrooms presumably have both toilet paper and paper towels (and sometimes even Kleenex) with which to properly dispose of boog. Hell, even doing the gym teacher Kleenex (holding one nostril and blowing) into the toilet or trash can would be more sanitary than using your fingers to remove the boog from their nose and put it on the wall. Maybe the boog-painters figure they can wash their hands when they’re done leaving their presents for the next person who comes in the crapper.

    P.S.

    Just for fun, genericized trademarks.

    I used to have a co-worker who didn’t even do us the courtesy of using the bathroom — he wiped boogers on his cubicle walls. He really had no excuse, as the company provided boxes of tissues.

    He was fired because he did a crappy job, not because of the booger thing.

    We had someone that did that at my old job, always on the same wall, and we knew precisely who it was. I think they even knew we knew, and just carried on.

    If you think that is bad, back in school all the boys were taken out of class and for a boys-only assembly, where we were told someone had been wiping their shit all over the bathroom walls! We never did discover who the phantom crapper was.

    My junior high was in the same building as a kindergarten and we had to use the same bathroom. It was about the size of your average reach-in closet, but with a wee little child-size toilet in it. The wall was about six inches from your face when you sat on the toilet, and COVERED in boogers, right at eye level for a squatting eighth grader (or standing kindergartner). Many times they were still glistening and I’d have to turn around and retch when I was done peeing.

    But until now I never knew ADULTS put their boogers on the walls. That’s just… wow. All I can think of is Stimpy and his Magic Nose Goblins.

    It appears that wall boogers are far more common than we all thought and requires immediate attention.

    Time to formulate a special paint that won’t allow the chemistry of boogers to affix itself to the walls.

    i used to clean office loos and overall the women’s were so much worse than the men’s. goes against popular belief, but the men didn’t put bloody pads and tampax on the toilet lid, in the loo brush holder, behind the u-bend or on the floor, didn’t wipe shit on the walls and didn’t flush tights or socks down the loo. and i never had to break up a monster turd in the men’s loos. however, the corona of bogies around the urinals in the (executive) offices was a particular horror of mine.

    now i work in a rather cleaner, more pleasant job in health care. a couple of weeks ago i was treating a small child who took off her sock and blew her nose on her foot. yes. both me and her mother were a little stunned at that particular choice. oh, to be 3 again…

    I worked for a manufacturing plant in central Indiana, we made food for a large grocery that in turned owned alot of other large and small groceries nationwide, and our products were distributed nationwide. Arbitrary sanitation rules were often implemented, but we still had our booger wipers in the stalls. The plant’s painter had the job of painting the bathroom one day, of course all the boogers were just painted over…making them more everlasting than the baby shoes your mom had bronzed for you.
