For those of you who don’t pay attention to details, you may have missed the messages that frequently inundate us while using a public restroom. Recently I noticed that Sanor System, a Rochester Midland product, flaunts the slogan Clean Restrooms Happy People on the urinals and toilets that it helps to keep clean.
This seems rather hopeful and overly optimistic, don’t you think?
I’m not buying it. Personally, a clean restroom and the level of my personal satisfaction are hardly simpatico.
But my favorite restroom message is on the rubber pads that you find inside a urinal. While their purpose still evades me, some of these companies think it’s a great idea to place public service announcements on these pieces of rubber, since the urinal admittedly enjoys a captive audience.
The Swisher corporation is the most prolific in this regard.
The result is me urinating on slogans like Don’t Do Drugs.
Literally. It’s almost unavoidable.
Am I the only one who sees the irony of this situation?
