    OK, this is my first entry here and I am going to write something yucky! :) well, if you are expecting something informative, this may not be the correct place, pls move forward.

    -----------------------------------------
    The women's restrooms in my office is amusing me almost everyday.

    1) First the way the toilet is placed, the pipes and buckets under it (no, no sanitary tap for the western toilet system.. am just happy that there are at least paper rolls in spite of being hard enough to hurt your tender body parts) are located and the door are not in synch. The door will hit the bucket as you open the door and you have to move the bucket. if you move the bucket you will have trouble filling water (if empty) and also trouble to sit on the toilet. The water in the bucket will often be full and you will have them spilling over your feet every time you do this ritual.. for me, that is disgusting!

    2) You have to do a gymnastic if you dont want to touch and move the bucket or spill the water or brush against the toilet commode

    3) The wash basins located outside the toilet has the drain inside one of the room and that too not on closed manner. if you are using that toilet room, whatever chunk that people puts in wash basin will fall next to you, isnt it disgusting enof that many of us literally will not use it so, total rooms minus one

    4) There is a basement where people burrows and there is no restroom there and those girls also comes up to ground floor (our floor) and use the rest room. more colorful (for guyz), more fun, more smell, and no vacancy.

    5) There is no paper for toilet seat. I think it is zero in India as a whole. I wish we have it so that we dont have to mess with others feet. What does this mean? refer to next point

    6) The worst thing is one of our girls doesnt know how to use this western toilet. very often we see 'shoe/chappal prints' on the toilet seat which means she is using the toilet in indian style, putting her feet and not butt. i wonder who would do that in this I/T company, is she that village sort? and the amusement is how she can climb and use in such a posture. she should be too thin to balance herself (grrr....) and how will she clean herself? god knows!

    7) Admin dept has pasted a printout - "Please put your butt, not your feet on the toilet seat", hillarious but effective right?!!!! (no no that was my suggestion and admin gundu stared at me like 'ada alpamae' (you silly) and rejected the idea immediately)

    8) As i have mentioned in the first point, the location is too bad to place an additional trash bin in the competition. so it has been placed on the raised wall behind the toilet basin. how girls are operating that is still a mystery for me. using hands?? ewwwww!! how do i survive naa, one of the room has it on the floor to use my feet. i wait for my turn to use That particular room every time. he he he

    9) hair strands everywhere esp. around the wash basin

    10) i hate wearing patiala type pants bcoz it gets wet, touching the bucket and the toilet basin

    11) Women form 'groups' to even go to restroom, huh! They even maintain timings - HR group 1 - 3 PM, Accounts group - 4 PM, admin - 4 PM :)

    i dont have any comment about the boys rest room, for obvioius reasons he he he :D

    Amusing you say?!!!, but this is the staunch reality I am sure 99% of the companies in Indai must be facing. I had similar experiences in all my offices that I worked. Many a times I would control and avoid using the restrooms just because of this reason. In one of my earlier organization, the problem had become so serious that the HR and Admin departments had to specially educate the entire ladies staff with warnings (GRRRRRR.............). Isn't that amusing that you are being trained on using toilets in an IT company?????

    I have always wondered how these same ladies maintained the toilets at home? Would they be so careless as to leave it unflusehd, uncleaned and stained even at home???? I think this is more a serious issue.

    I have always wondered

    i agree with you Saheli! am in fact, surprised by your comment that you have to "teach" those IT girls, oh my! i think these also should be part of the educational system.
    what to do, back at home they use indian and usage of western is more like unknown

    anyway thanks for ur comments. keep visiting.
