Toilet wars. - helen-louise
Toilet wars.
I am currently waging war against someone who I've decided to call The Phantom Shitter. I don't know who this person is, only that they regularly leave the accessible toilet on the 6th floor full of the sort of matter that really should be flushed away.

The war consists of the following: I wheel into the accessible toilet, find it full of shit, shout "Oh, that's disgusting", flush the toilet using a wad of toilet paper to protect my hand, wheel out, dump wheelchair outside the normal women's toilet and use that instead (the women's toilet, not the wheelchair). It's quite a passive-aggressive war, all things considered. But I just have too much common decency than to start leaving my own "bombs" for the Phantom Shitter to find.

I really need to start writing passive-aggressive notes to leave on the toilet door. You know, things like "Please flush the toilet when you've finished *smiley face*". But it occurred to me that this might not be good enough.

H-L: What if the person is visually impaired, and the reason they're leaving the toilet dirty is that they can't see it's dirty?
Richard: *quick as a flash* Passive-aggressive notes in Braille.

This is just one reason why I love that boy.

Have you reported this to the university? They might be able to check the toilet more often and work out who the likely culprit is. I bet you're not the only one finding the toilet is unusable.

And ugh! Sounds VILE!

Well, I'm not sure I want the Phantom Shitter caught - I'm willing to believe that the person concerned has a bad belly and bad eyesight. However, they should learn to flush the toilet better - or to come back a few minutes later to flush it again! (Most times I reckon that it's been flushed, but the, erm, TMI is doing an impression of Mr Hankey the Christmas Poo from South Park and refusing to leave).

The important part is that toilet is not cleaned anywhere near as often as it should be. (I know from the signatures of the cleaners inside the door). I'd ring the Estates and Facilities "hotline", but I was scared to since I swear I am the only person who ever rings it, and it's always on answerphone even during the hours when it's supposed to be operational! Don't want them comparing my voice to all the other times I've phoned up complaining about broken or dirty toilets around the building!
