When you think of hygiene issues in California, your mind most likely will jump to the poop issues in San Francisco. That’s where my mind jumps. There is good news for San Francisco: we have another location in the great utopia of California that is having massive hygiene issues.
SOURCE-Last Monday, an email was sent out to Pomona College students living in Walker Hall—one of the dormitories for upperclassmen—from Pomona’s Residence Life Coordinator, Andrew Castro, complaining of a urine problem in the residence hall, raising the issue of acceptable standards of behavior on college campuses.
A urine issue? What could that possibly be? At Ponoma College? The university with an acceptance rate of 10% can’t have students that are struggling to complete the simple task of going to the bathroom, right?
The email stated that there had been complaints from maintenance and facilities staff of “urine being found on the restroom floors,” and expressed concern for the “health and wellbeing of staff that have to respond and address these issues.”
Oh, so these kids just can’t hit the bowl? Having some accuracy issues? Happens to the best of us. Wait, there’s more?
In addition, Castro noted that some students had even urinated into bins located within the residence hall, rather than bothering to use the lavatory facilities. There were even reports of plastic bags filled with urine being found in these trash cans:
“There are reports that that plastic bags filled with urine are being disposed in the hallway trashcans. Additionally, urine has also been found in the trash bins themselves.”
At first, I was surprised reading this, but then I remembered this was an upperclassmen dorm. You know who lives on campus as a senior most of the time? Weirdos. You know what weirdos do? Piss into plastic bags. Once I realized that, this story made more sense.
As well as being a public health hazard, with the “building attendants [having] to take extra precautions and steps in order to deal with these incidents.” The urine-soaked bins also allegedly created an unpleasant smell that “[permeates] the general hallway”, thus making the entire building smell of urine.
Uhhhhhhhhhh ya think?!
Castro added that “[a]nother alarming trend is urine being found on the restroom floors. Restroom in the Walker main corridors are shared facilities.”
Yes, missing the bowl after the age of 8 is an alarming trend. I would say an incredibly alarming trend.
