Q: what is it with Chinese toilets?

At the gym last night and I needed to go for a number 1 and man I nearly was sick,the smell coming from the toilets,

 

it looked like they had not been clean for years.

 

why do people put up with this'? do they like smelling dirty toilets?

 

why are toilets not kept clean?

haha,,, I can still remember one of my early experiences in the Dreaded Sino Building of Excremental Doom.

I walk into this structure look like it was built back in mao days,,, totally open, no privacy partitions anywhere, bunch of holes in the floor, haha.  

One young male in the chinese squat position giving birth to a mao and his friend standing right beside him chatting away. Both enjoying cigarettes too.  Fkn freaked me out.  I can't even pee if I feel someone is too near, let alone watching me.

Mother came for a visit couple of weeks ago. Took her to a local temple I have not been to in years. I almost fucking shat myself when I saw the toilets! They were beautiful! Clean, bright, smelled wonderful, brand new building. I actually took a picture to send to the missus sitting at home with the bairn and told her these were the best toilets in China. Made my day.

Ha, that's a question with no answer Rob.

 

Everyone who has spent any time in China has asked this and as far as I know nobody has ever gotten an answer to that question.

 

I suppose it's something to do with the 500000000000 years of history.

because the locals have zero care being recently from the farm

 

the locals build up a tolerance for the smell

 

because the ex farm worker newly rich boss only wants to hire the cheapest toilet cleaner to pay for the BMW

In Vladistan, they have the same (looking) public cans everywhere you go. I don't know about the smell and cleanliness, 'cause I prefer to hold till I come home ....I've never been inside neither in China not here.

 

They also have blind people pavement same as they have it in China. I am convinced, Ruski didn't copy of Chinese. 

I'll find out if this is novelty in Ruski and report back about who copied who.

 I had a smart lady friend who taught nutrition courses in various universities as a hobby. Everywhere we traveled to the first thing she did, on arrival, was went to the toilet. Initially I thought it was due to the wait in the vehicles but after awhile that apparently wasn't the case because she just popped in and out within seconds. 

 

She went in to check the cleanliness of these public toilets only. Smart cookie she was. Public toilets were the most difficult places to keep clean. First of all, if it is a shopping arcade you immediately know how good the management is.  Secondly, you also immediately know the class of users of that arcade, education level and selfishness index (spreading out to other moral qualities).

 

If it is china, this is something impossible even for master liars like CCP and mainlanders to cover-up with their bs propaganda and lies. China mainlanders, the condition of your public toilets betray what you are, your Mercedes, high speed trains and high rises face thing are futile deodorants to the wise. LoL

Ha ha. Got me thinking about the film 'Trainspotting'. The worst toilet in Scotland.

The worst toilets I have seen were in Egypt in the late 90s. Portaloos, filled to the brim with shit.

The factory where I work is ok toilet wise. But for some reason, about 2 months ago, the 2 western style cubicle shitters we have are covered in shit. Blocked up, full up, basically just disgusting. They are fine in the morning, nice and clean, but after lunch they are crap.

Its probably one guy who does it. Maybe some sort of protest. Or maybe just an ignorant fuck that thinks that cleaners are there to be abused.

I suspect the latter.

A:I think the first "not smart" thing you did was to think of everyone as a subordinate. They are in fact your team members. You are also a team member and your role is to supervise, not flex your muscles. It drives you nuts when your boss does this and then you do exactly the same thing. Think about it. Adapt, change, bend the rules and be more efficient. -- iWolf
