Going Off On One of My Biggest Office Pet Peeves

Mens Room

Let me apologize right off of the bat – I’m going to go on a bit of a rant here and the topic is rather unappealing. But something has to be said…

The frequency with which the men’s room toilet seat is being “sprayed” on is mind boggling.

There, I said it.

I mean, I get the fact that some people don’t necessarily want to lift the seat with their hand, I don’t either. Which is exactly why I use my foot to lift the seat when I need to use the facilities.

But guys, your aim isn’t as great as you think.

And I can’t imagine that the culprit (or culprits) isn’t noticing when they “miss”.

Look, doing that in a public restroom is one thing. I still don’t think it’s particularly considerate, but let’s use the public toilets at Penn Station as an example – they’re usually filthy, you don’t want to touch them at all, and there are full time janitors there.

But in a professional office setting? Come on.

First of all, it’s inconsiderate. People have to sit there.

Secondly, how does that look to our guests?

We’re a major media outlet. We have politicians, celebrities, and dignitaries in our offices all the time. We have a beautiful, brand new, state of the art facility. How does it look to one of our guests if their first stop is the rest room and it looks like a toilet at Penn Station?

We’re all adults here, let’s exercise a little courtesy and basic hygiene.

Ok, I feel better now.
