My job is depressing me to the point where I'm losing weight and getting regular migraines...oh and the crying, lets not forget the crying.

I just don't know how to NOT care when customers call and complain. I work my ass off trying to please them and then some fuckcunt from a different department stuffs it up. I tried to find some zen today but my colleague told me we work in a zenless environment.

Sad :(

I hear you... Had to leave a note for the filthy munga tradies here this week asking to put toilet seat down (female dominated office) and not piss everywhere.

^ I had to leave a note once as well at my work. I was pretty sure it was the BIG boss's PA who had a habit of hovering her arse over the toilet and just spraying the piss all over the back of the seat. Disgusting. As if you can't see it there when you finish and have to flush.

Just cause you don't sit on the seat doesn't mean you should leave it all fucken filthy for everyone else.

Happy day when she resigned. No more dirty toilets.

I don't agree that men should put the seat down.... we've got to put it up before use, why cant you just put it down before use??

I do however have objection with piss being all over the show.... WRONG

:scr1pt:

Women: they think they OWN the toilet.

Mind you, I put the seat down AND close the lid - always. Do you know that if you flush without the lid down, all the nasties in the toilet form an aerosol that you breathe in? Goodtimes there...

ohh bit o toliet angst in here i see, and all the boys on the lid up or fuck you bandwagon!

well i have to say that i dont demand that the seat be put back down UNLESS
there is more women than men usin it
or the men who use it pee all over it so i have to touch their pee to put the seat down again.

i have fallen in our toilet in the middle of the night in the dark too many times.

two women, one man in house = toilet seat DOWN before exit.

also, if said man pees all over toilet, he can damn well clean it too.

How the hell do you fall in the toilet? :lol:

PS: men can't piss on the seat if the seat is up.

But meh... mad whatevs to the power of 83.

I still don't agree.... by numbers the seat would be down more on exit due to the larger amount of girls so you have to put it down less.... so it's better than if there's equal men/women or more men than women. So you should have no gripe.

it's like when mums a teaching their daughters to hate on men this is one of the things that they learn to hang on them.... it sticks for some reason... women really have no logical grounds in which to be pissed off by it.

er, it's not 'lid up or fuck you', it's 'i don't care whether the lid's up or down, and why does anyone else?'.

ghetto kitty wrote:or the men who use it pee all over it so i have to touch their pee to put the seat down again.

the solution here is pretty simple: don't piss all over the toilet. if you actually do, clean it up. it's called not being a grot.

ghetto kitty wrote:also, if said man pees all over toilet, he can damn well clean it too.

... if anyone pisses all over the toilet (cf. cia's boss's pa), they can clean it up. it's not a man/woman thing, it's just ... i don't even know what it is. it's fundamental to life.

lol nic sore eyes?

from the stories ive heard it seems to me that chicks are more grotty than dudes when it comes to toilets.

at rmit for eg. its always the chicks that complain about the horrendous state of the dunnies, blood piss tampons etc. the only thing that is ever wrong with guys dunnies is a bit of piss on the urinal but that's a given.

Having been in the wimmins toilets a number of times, I can indeed confirm that they are absolutely rancid compared to the mens.

I'm entering on the toilet debate a bit late here, but some useless trivia for you-

At Ripponlea Estate (mansion built by Sargood after the 1850s goldrush here in Melbourne) has a ensuite attached to the study, which was only used by men, and therefore has a spring in the seat which means it always stays up. Don't know why that hasn't caught on really.

What happens when you remove your weight to wipe? The mechanics of this system are flawed.

:? I think you are over estimating the power of the spring...

edit: if you really want to check it out and understand the mechanics of it, they do several tours a day (including weekends) of the mansion- well worth a visit... not just for the toilet (but be sure to ask about it so they don't forget to show you).
