I work in a small museum, so I never know what I’ll end up doing each day. I could be leading tours, doing research, cleaning a thousand-year-old artifact, or cleaning our new public bathroom.
Today, it was the latter. When went into the Ladies’ Room with my cleaning supplies, I was confronted by the sight of not just one, but two toilet bowls which had not been flushed after being used.
This isn’t the first time I’ve found this, either, and it’s perplexing. Across the socio-economic spectrum, spanning all age groups and both sexes, visitors leave behind bowls full of piss and paper. (Thankfully, I haven’t been confronted with a “floater”. . . . Yet.)
What explains this behavior? I haven’t finished my excretory functions, and not flushed since my days upon a potty chair. I’d actually feel embarassed to leave a stall without flushing.
Do these people do this at home?
