As most of you know I am stationed on a ship. My ship happens to have
decided to employ this new not so fancy toilet system. This system is
always down leaving everyone "forward of frame 140" (the whole front end of the ship) in search of a place to handle business. Now for the males
this is not as big of an issue due to the abundance of male heads
(restrooms) on the ship. However, for females this means a seemingly
endless trek all the way to the back of the ship. How horrible. Do you
know what it feels like to wake up around 3 am and have to use the
restroom only to find out that all of your toilets are down? Well I do!
Let me tell you, it's no fun. You can not just walk through the ship in
your PJs, you have to get fully dressed in gym clothes or your uniform
and take a wonderful two minute stroll just to pee.
Ok so with that being said, what do you think a restroom that a little
over 600 females are using looks like? If you said not pretty then you
are correct. There is rarely toilet paper or even toilets with seats
(not that I use them, I'm a squatter) for that matter. Oh and you want
soap??? What do you think this is the Ritz Carlton??? I have a supply
of baby wipes and sanitizer on standby and when I go on my toilet
outings I bring them along, just in case.
How often does this happen you ask...well as you can see I have decided
to blog about it so that should tell you something...today I will be
participating in the "Great Toilet Hunt" because yep you guessed
it...ALL HEADS FORWARD OF FRAME 140 ARE SECURED.
