This is the dumbest thing ever to post on my blog considering that NO ONE that this rant applies to will read it, but dammit, I'm posting this anyway. Because I'm mad. And grossed out. And I have the power to post this here...so....THERE. Hey, maybe some of the dudes who read this will learn something. Who the hell knows.
What's my major malfunction? Well: I am SO FUCKING SICK of having to put down the fucking toilet seat in the bathrooms in ATC.
What. The. HELL. IS THAT ABOUT! Why isn't there a sign that says "Men: Please put the toilet seat down". There are FOUR "Call don't fall" signs. Four. In one bathroom. What about "Call when you fall in the toilet". Why am I even suggesting a fucking sign? Shouldn't they just know this? Isn't that like, basic man bathroom routine that you learn as a child? Guys? REALLY?
The fact that the bathrooms here are co-ed grosses me out anyway (and there are like, 5 of them for this quarter floor, so it doesn't even make sense) and this toilet seat thing makes me freak every time I see it. We're all immunocompromised. All of us. I don't care if you're not, guy in the room next to me, I've decided that you are because I AM and therefore EVERYONE IS. Or something rational like that. This means that I can get infections VERY EASILY. Things that give people infections? TOUCHING TOILET SEATS THAT OTHER PEOPLE HAVE GROSSED ALL OVER. Or not. I don't even know if you actually can. It makes sense, plus we're all being pumped full of toxins and THAT can't be OK either. But it's FUCKING GROSS.
Seriously, MD Anderson, this is the dumbest thing ever. Really? Picture this: I'm wearing a face mask so no one coughs on me on the way to the bathroom but I have to use paper towels to put a FUCKING TOILET SEAT DOWN when I get there or practice advanced yoga to get my foot up to put the damn thing down without losing my flip flop in the TOILET. REALLY?!? Now there's gross on my flip flop. Fuck.
As soon as my nurse (who happens to be the charge nurse today...what luck! Girlfriend doesn't know what's comin') comes to unhook me from my infusion you bet your BUTT I'm saying something. I wonder who I can call about this. Maybe the CEO of the hospital. That would be hilarious... Get ready whoever you are, Laura's steroidal and GROSSED OUT.
