Fortunately, THAT I did not have to do during my deployment. Aircrew members were exempt from that type of ground-pounder literal "sh!t detail".(no offense intended to grunts)
But I did catch a whiff from afar. Bad.
Nothing like the smell of burning crap, stifling high humidity in still air, and aircraft exhaust to make you wanna toss.

By the way Schmidt, thanks for your service.

Re: Employee Clogs Customers Toilet


What is with some employees? I refuse to ever let my guys use a customer toilet....what I can hardly believe is that they would do in a customer's restroom is what they do in their own home....

I've often wondered the same thing when I see the condition of the inside of the portables. Would they do that at home? Yecch.

You couldn't even close the seat cover , it was quite the sight before having lunch.
Okay, that is bad. The imagery of bran, pyramid, frozen, can't close the seat. Oh man.
Makes me wonder who was the stalwart soul who deposited the final last crowning load to the frozen Mount Sh!tsuvius.
At least it was frozen.

Re: Employee Clogs Customers Toilet


South Florida Naples (summer), new jail edition (4 story), 8 portash*tters, and a construction company that refused to clean them for whatever reason after 3 weeks.

In s. Florida it is not only Hispanics that don't speak english, there are 30 other dogpiss Country's citizens that call s. Florida home.
Imagine the assortment of "local" cuisine that involves all sorts of weird ingredients all mushing around in the box in 90% humidity and 100 degree heat for weeks.

BTW joasis I don't care if you are a Moderator here you are insane for refusing to let your subcontractors use a toilet.
Seriously, you expect my crew to drive off site at MY expense just to take a leak?


You must hire some seriously desperate subs for them to allow you such control over them.

Re: Employee Clogs Customers Toilet


The guy that comes to pump out our porta pots is the most jovial human being I have ever met.

He listens to opera and sings it quite louldy while he's pumping pooh.

About the only thing that takes the wind out of his sails momentarily is a coffe cup clogging up the line.

Dogpiss countries, that made me roll in laughter. The Republics of Dogpiss, sums it up for me.

None of my business, but I'm pretty sure Joasis meant, as he said in the post, "customer" toilets.

At least it was connected.
*Note* Never leave an un-connected toilet unguarded.

I guess you missed something. On job sites, we furnish porta potties....if a sub, or one of my guys were to use a customer's restroom...and we are talking about a residence here, they would be dismissed. It is a part of the code here to provide sanitation facilities...do you get it?

Re: Employee Clogs Customers Toilet


My bad I am a "regular" kinda guy, if you know what I mean...




"Facilities" are the first thing I procure when starting any job.






Again I apologize.

Ohhh man... I'm a CE in the air force and part of my schooling I had to learn about all the types of "toilets" that can be used in the field. When I hear about the temp. "toilet" all I thought about was how sorry I felt for the guy that had the detail of burning that s*?! off.

I once took a stateside hop on a C-121 Connie that had a busted lav.
Five gallon bucket in the back of the ship was the temporary fix. We flew from McClellan field to a base in N.M.
Didn't see anybody go back there to use the "facilities" for anything more serious than a quick whizz.

Did they also teach you that the plumbing in the showers at the more remote bases are not reliable? We used to chuckle at the FNG's when they would lather up their whole body whilst showering.
We learned pretty quick not to do that, because when, not if, the water went off you didn't want to be in full suds.

I did'nt even know they had a latrine! We flew back on a military transport (can't remember what kind) & had to piss something fierce. On the way there we flew a chartered Flying Tigers 747 passanger jet. Nice ride! Flew into Tagusagalpa & took a chinook to the base we were to stay at for the next two weeks. (I was in the reserves & this was our annual training)
