Library Life | Shit Show...

Remember the other day that I said I'd start writing about work again, well do I have a little story for you that literally just happened... Out of nowhere a bunch of patrons just ran into the department with disgusted looks on their faces and my Department Head and I just kind of looked at them very quizzically. Eventually one of them came over to us and informed us that someone had defecated in the hallway. One by one other patrons confirmed what the original patron had stated and my Department Head when to the hallway to check. Not two seconds later the door to our department was shut and she was on the phone trying to find our custodian.

Unfortunately throughout this I realized that I had to use the restroom myself (Why didn't I just pee earlier when I got back from the meeting I was at?!!) so I had to brave the hallway to make my way to the staff restroom. And oh my God, it was literally a shit show. There were piles of feces on the floor and smeared on the tiles. It was one of the most disgusting things I've seen at work in the longest time.

Being me, I took pictures but I will spare you all the photos because I basically took them to show our Director and random staff memebers. But yeah, there is my work story for you...

    1. You know it! I still can't believed it happened and I mean I should because back when I was a Page someone smeared shit all over our holocaust section.

  2. Gross!

    I'm sorry you had to deal with that.

    When I worked in nonprofit events fundraising, I once had to deal with someone who had taken up residence in the portapottie we rented for our event. (Luckily I had a security detail that could handle it for me.)

    1. I mean thankfully I didn't have to clean it but it was disgusting.

      My biggest problem is the fact that it happened and the person who did it didn't come say anything to someone in the building.

    1. I have no idea. We still have no clue what exactly happened.

      Apparently after I left they found another mess in the bathroom. Feces. Vomit. You name it.
