The bathroom battle of the sexes…a true race to the bottom.

July 21st, 2010 · 79 comments

Though your attention might have drifted ever so briefly, I’d like to reassure you that the ongoing debate over which restrooms (men’s or women’s) are the foulest continues to rage on — and yes, it’s as nauseating as ever!

I literally received these two submissions — the first from an EMT school in Massachusetts, the second from a non-profit in D.C. — within minutes of each other. Mere coincidence? Or a cosmic clue from the Internet gods that it was time for a showdown between “Angulated Rectum Guy” and “The Queen of Diahrriah?” Okay, that was a gimme. The real question: who would you rather share a loo with?

Exhibit A) as witnessed by Josh in Fall River, Mass.

Hey...... There is no Excuse for leaving the toilet covered in Feces (that is shit in case you didn't know). So...... Whoever is the guy with the angulated Rectum... Please do one of the following: A. Sit down on the seat... it is clean, we pay a cleaning staff! B. See a Dr. ... You have a problem! C. Clean up after yourself! Non of us should be exposed to it..

Exhibit B) From an anonymous bystander in College Park, Maryland

PLEASE CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELF'S!

      Anchormen nationwide are reporting on ARS (angulated rectum syndrome), and they’re doing it like they do with SARS and AIDS, pronouncing it as a word…

      “The number of ARS incidents increased this week.
      A local maintenance man said, ‘I just can’t believe this crap!’
      That’s a janitor with real intestinal fortitude.

      From the looks of things, this stuff has really hit the fan!

      A spokesperson for the CDC asked that they be given more time ‘to investigate this shit.’
      Apparently, they have a heavy load on their hands, and this is a really big job.
      We here at the anchor desk hope there is positive movement in the short term, but must report that there are limited resources in the bowels of the building where the researchers are working due to the atmosphere this crisis has created.

      Now, the sports report…the Cleveland Cavaliers dropped one in Kansas City…”

      @ 11.4 — doesn’t it always make you wonder what these women do, the ones who have the 6-inch long fake nails? You know, they’re usually running a register at the grocery store, hitting the keys with the side of their thumb and/or constantly messing up. I just stare. How do they wipe? Open a door? Insert a tampon? Button their clothes? Do *anything* useful?

      My grand-nephew was born 3 months premature, and had to spend the first 104 days of his life in NICU (he’s nearly 3 years old now, and doing fine). During that time, his parents often remarked upon how very many of the NICU nurses had long, manicured, fake nails, which seems to me to be a terrible obstacle to sanitation. Not only do the NICU nurses have to wash their hands constantly, but I would think those nails would catch on or puncture gloves. I would think that if you were in that particular profession, you would realize that 3″ nails are probably not the best fashion choice.

      And I don’t know how these women can type. I keep my nails very short, for practical reasons and because the “clicking” sound when they get a bit long drives me bananas.

      In a 2-year course, there was another student who had 3-inch+ nails. A computer security course. She sat in the row behind me. Did I mention TWO YEARS??

      Ever seen a heron hunting for fish? This is how she typed. Her hands hovered directly above the keyboard, index fingers slowly waving above them.. searching for her prey… clickSLAM on the W key! hover… hover… clickSLAM on the T key! hover… hover… clickSLAM on the F key! and then gently caress the punctuation key as necessary — click_rub….

      I was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize solely for not killing her.

    “inconvienenicing” must have unlocked the apostrophe safe in her head.
    You can see this for “yourself’s” without any “problem’s”.

      I had such high hopes after the first paragraph. The apostrophe in “today’s” was…fine, I guess. “Unacceptable” was spelled right. Then I get blindsided by “inconvienenicing.” I keep trying to pronounce it, but I’m getting a headache. Then, while I’m still reeling from that catastrophe, along comes “yourself’s.” Wha??? The inappropriate apostrophe on “person’s” is bad enough, but are we to believe that the same person who can spell “hesitate” and “management” and “unacceptable” correctly really thought that “yourself’s” was right? Was s/he sick that day in 2nd grade? Yourself’s: this is what is wrong with America.

    This is a never-ending saga at my house. My husband is guilty of constantly making a “toilet-paper catcher’s mitt” for every poop; leaving the toilet paper on the vanity, where it gets soaked with water splashed from the sink; peeing on the seat; leaving streaks of poop on the bowl; leaving poop on the seat; sprinkling on the floor; and clogging the toilet to the point that our plumber no longer asks for directions to our house.

    This isn’t an extensive list, and at least one of those things happens on a daily basis. I’m starting to consider whether this constitutes “emotional abuse and negligence” in divorce court.

      “Whoever” is the correct word in this case because it was followed by an action: “Whoever made the mess…” I hate it when people incorrectly substitute “whom” or “whomever” in an effort to sound edu-ma-cated. And don’t even get me started on the improper use of “I,” as in, “if you have any questions, please see him or I.”

      There’s no debate. It just depends whether it’s the subject or not. Simple test is to replace “who” with “he” and “whom” with “him” and see which phrase sounds right.

      Obviously “he pees on the seat” is better than “him pees on the seat”. Therefore you use “whoever”.

      Lesson over.

    I work in an office where the messes in the bathroom are unacceptable on a daily basis, and I’m not talking about bodily functions. This is a nice new office building, and the bathrooms are the nicest I’ve personally experienced in a workplace, with tile floors and granite counters. I have yet to go to wash my hands and not find puddles of water all over the countertop. Seriously, what are these women doing that they need to deposit so much water all over the place? Splashing in the sink like it’s a birdbath?

      Dude. We can all imagine what the scene looked like. That was far too “inconvienenicing” for me…. *shudder*

    I realize this isn’t customerssuck.com, but in the 90s I worked at a chain book/music/video store in which there was one restroom, shared by customers and employees alike. At one point there had been an employee restroom, hidden safely away in the stockroom where customers could not get to it, but our district manager, who spent all of one or two days a month at our store, inexplicably decided that the store manager’s office wasn’t good enough for her to do her paperwork, and she had the employee restroom converted into an office.

    So. We had to share a restroom with customers. And it had a pushbutton lock on it so that customers wouldn’t take product into the restroom and abscond with it. Still, we found nasty little offerings, such as the porn magazine we found on the high shelf reserved for cleaning products, with its pages all stuck together.

    If you think that’s “eww,” you should have seen the time we found feces on the wall. Not next to the toilet. On the wall opposite the toilet. Someone had apparently been demonstrating their poo-flinging skills.

    Then there was the woman who did NOT ask us to be let into the restroom, but instead informed us that her child had dumped upon the carpet and now she expected us to clean it up. The manager gave her a roll of paper towels and asked her to get the worst of it. In an apparent fit of pique that we didn’t do the job ourselves, she took the paper towels and ground the poo into the carpet. The carpet had to be replaced.

    Having worked in customer service for years and years, I thought retail customers were the most disgusting animals on the planet, but I’m starting to think office workers may come in a close second.
