"classy" people need to be reminded to flush


Today I visited my old high school for my sister's orchestra concert, and there were so many hilarious things about the bathroom. And it wasn't that way when I was a student. There were bottles of hair gel, hand lotion, on the counter. It was hard to find soap! Inside the stalls are these signs (HCHS is the school) and I was SO EXCITED.

(it was really outrageously nice, which is kind of why it's so funny).

wow -- unnecessary quotation marks, apostrophe abuse, AND a passive aggressive note.

Dude, I love your blog. I hope one day I can send you something. I just have to remember to have the camera handy.

So are you supposed to put tampons behind your stools so they'll flush better? Or for the aesthetic effect?

How "clean and fresh" can this place be with _all this talk_ of stool??? Grody.

Is that common or maybe _dated_ Canadian vernacular, to equate "stool" (presumably, the porcelain one) with "toilet"?

The best bit—"our Lady's Restroom".

Sounds like a bathroom in a church.

Could 'flushing the stool' become the new jumping the shark?

I think "our Lady's Restroom" fits in well with the holiday season.

Whoops, I didn't see martin polley's comment along the same lines.

I don't remember us having to work that hard to keep the bathrooms in shape when WE went there. Ahh... the simplicity of life at HCHS.

cailan, I think you're right about the canadian thing. This is in michigan, we have a lot of canadian imports.

cailan said...

Mungo and Julie, you guys should try and think of an excuse to go look at this bathroom. It's completely absurd and hilarious. When we went there it was just a regular bathroom! It's the one by the art room.

Did NO ONE think the substitution of the word "stool" for "toilet" would cause confusion at Our Lady of the Immaculate Porcelain High School?

'stool' is used in place of 'toilet' in parts of rural illinois, as well.

my brothers and i discovered this years ago upon the arrival of a new set of stepsiblings, and, needless to say, teased them relentlessly.

I enjoyed that it made clear toward the end that the requested behaviors are not just for those who live in the restroom, but also for those just visiting.

i was taught as a child to flush the stool, always. even during times of drought, you "flush it down."
