    That gum is the least-gross thing in that shower.

      Ya srsly.

      Repeat after me, people:

    TEAM NOTE-WRITER. Doesn’t even need to be explained. This barely qualifies as a PAN, actually, since the note-writer presumably does not know who the note-writee is (there are clearly more than two people using that shower).

    That’s really gross.

    Somehow the hair and mold around the gum is making this even more disgusting.

    I’m the messiest person I know, and I even gagged at the picture. I would wear a Hazmat suit to go piss in there.

      Please don’t pee in their nasty shower. That’s not helpful. (Though, I suppose if you peed inside your HAZMAT suit, that’d be alright. Gross, but alright.)

      Come on – they have a walk-in urinal, built just for that purpose, and you don’t want to use it?

      If the shower is as nasty as the gum, urine could only help.

      …Do you piss Clorox Cleanup or something, Elf? Because, that strikes me as a really handy superpower to have! You really should get invited to more parties.

    When I shower and wash my hair, I will pull my hair through my hand and grab all the loose/broken hairs in one fell swoop and put it on the edge of the tub, then I clean it off with some TP or kleenex after I’m done showering.

    I occasionally forgot that “clean up” part when I was married. My god, did that set him off.

    Sorry, dude.

      My dad and now my boyfriend have suffered this also… but I think gum is worse. Why would you even take it in the shower?

      I usually just quickly brush my hair before getting into the tub/shower. Seems to get at least most of the loose ones.

      Hey, it’s not just gals who leave hair behind in the shower. I’m frankly surprised that your (ex?) husband even noticed. I’m the one who deals with it in my house.

      My roommate used to do that, except she’d just push it up to the edge of the tub and always forget the clean up part. She’d leave the pile there until bathroom cleaning day. To her credit, she did start disposing of it daily after I asked her to. She was a redhead too. Wonder if there’s a correlation.

      I have very thick, long hair. It’s too thick to comb while dry unless I spend a half hour or so on it. My solution varies depending on where I live. At home, we have a drain cover, so I pull it all out, rinse it off my hands, and clean it up when I’m done. At school, I comb my hair in the shower, put all the loose hair on the comb, and clean it off when I get out. Works just fine. Hopefully my roommate has started doing that too because this shower clogs very easily…

    Don’t go to Bubblegum Alley in San Luis Obispo, CA.

    Don’t even google an image.

      As a SLO resident, I cringe every time I pass the Alley and see people taking pictures there.

      Seriously: the Fremont Theatre and Mission Plaza, to name just two more aesthetic landmarks, are only blocks away and you’re taking pictures of the unwashed armpit of downtown? The urinals at the Madonna Inn are prettier…

    Someone probably took the Dentyne slogan a little too literally. This is what passes as their toothbrush.

    IIRC “Cleans your teeth while it cleans your breath.”

    Wow – that is an incredible amount of paint layers on that ledge. I’m truly impressed at the superb painting skills of what I can assume is a person with little or no hand or arm control.

    The OCD/perfectionist in me just wants to attack that paint with my trusty putty knife and a heat gun.

      That’s what you get when you rent older apartments- they just slop new paint on top of the old without tidying it up.

      I lived in a few where the painters only painted the dirty parts of the wall or what they could reach, so when the light it it, the walls were striped with different levels of gloss. Ridiculous.

    While we’re on the subject, why the holy heckies do some people try to dispose of chewing gum in water fountains? Or in urinals? I can only conclude that there is some bizarre misconception about the solubility of gum in water.

    The note writer is totally off-base. The gum is in the right place, as the surroundings clearly indicate the entire room is a garbage receptacle.

    Doesn’t this person know that you’re supposed to hide your used gum UNDER surfaces?

      @Nikki

      I do facilities-management work in a high school, and personally, I’d prefer if people left it where it was more visible (and less likely that I’d accidentally put my hand in it, like under a counter where I’m trying to run a cable).

      Especially when it’s fresh. Nothing quite like picking up a table and feeling something squish and/or stick to the one finger you’re trying to keep clean in case you get something in your eye. :-)

      Thank you for the laugh, Mr. Peterson. Reminds me of when I was younger and stuck my used chewing gum under one of the keyboards for the school library computers. Over 4 years of High School, I just kept adding to it. The fun part: being in the room when the school’s IT department was upgrading the computers, someone picked up the keyboard and let out this horrendous groan, followed by:

      “Gum. Gum fucking everywhere! Who the fuck does this shit!?”

      Cue instant laughter.

      No, I didn’t get in trouble for it, but I had to pay for the replacement keyboard.
