    Work Toilets - User Error

    Is it just me or are all work toilets prone to user error, some people who obviously have no common sense/decency.

    I've seen crap in toilets at a number of different companies I've worked at so it's not just where I work at the moment.

    I'm sick of trying to use the toliet after some chump has either missed the bowl, messed the seat, not flushed, left a nice wet door handle, etc.

    Why can't people use the toilets at work properly, it's fairly basic.

    I just happen to have my new camera at work when I encountered a prime example....



    Close up on the floor:

    I mean FFS the toliet roll has whiped their bottom and then they drop it on the floor, then wet it!

    Same toliet, rolled up bog roll and a bottle of water next to the sink
    Why?


    Anyone know a good way to clean up the workforce, our training department don't want to run potty training courses!

    put a complaint into HR or building services or something like that - they normally know what to do. (they could either send out an email or put a sign up in the toilets telling people to get their act together)

    Yeah sorry forgot to say that we have polite notices up and all that sort thing.
    I was just trying to make a general point about the generla lack of respect some people seem to have at work for shared toilets!

    My m8 was a cleaner for a leisure complex, so had to clean the bogs when it was closed. He saw some frightful sights and would tell me of these horrors with extreme detail up the pub afterwards. He told me that the ladies toilets where the worst for 'spillages', where as the blokes suffered with 'flushing problems'. - Nice Job

    I know the problem; I mean, without getting into specifics, is it so hard to use a bog brush? Or wait 20 seconds if the first flush hasn't, well, worked? It's just deeply unpleasant.

    I'm slightly more worried that you've been taking a camera into your office bogs.

    I totally agree- as a hygiene freak I'm frequently disgusted by the state of the toilets at work. I personally would favour employing a large and intimidating gentleman to check the state of the toilets after each use and administer a vicious beating to anyone who hasn't cleaned up after themselves.
