Smart Thinking.

After school one day, headed back to my classroom, I noticed a garden hose going from a utility room into the boys bathroom, and heard the whoosh of water being sprayed around.   I stuck my head in to see what was going on, and there was one of the custodians hosing down the entire bathroom.

Somebody was thinking when they designed the school I’m at.  The bathrooms are all tiled all the way to the ceiling, and there is a sunken drain in one corner.  So, short of some kid throwing stuff onto the ceiling, which is not unheard of, the whole thing can be simply squirted down.

Some architect knows teenagers.

And some architect must've known that junior high school boys pee onto the ceiling.

And you know that I'm not even joking here.

Sadly, I know you're not joking.

Now if they could only design (in most) bathrooms where to put the hand dryers where they don't get in the way of people waiting in line! I have to say though - What an amazing sparkling restroom! ;)

Karen - Thanks, we have a pretty good custodial staff. Even a newer building can look bad pretty quickly without good custodians. Especially in a junior high school.
