In my office building, the female washroom is locked.
Each office is given a key for their female staff to access the washroom.
However after entertaining a group of female guests the other day in the office, my office’s female washroom key poofed into oblivion.
So I went to borrow our friendly neighbour’s key and had it duplicated. Somehow, that didn’t work. The duplicated keys just won’t fit! Urgh. Soooo going to get a refund. It wasn’t cheap too!
My office is expecting the landlord to send over new keys to us, but in the few days- the females in my office had no choice but to use the handicap washroom.
You can’t really expect us to use the male washroom, right?
So one day I took a shit in the handicap washroom… It was quite a while. I managed to defeat the final level of PVZ. 😀
But anyways, I came out to be greeted by a security guard of the building.
And it broke out to be quite of an argument…
Security Guard: Eh, girl. You’re not handicapped, why are you using the handicap toilet?
Me: Oh, sorry. But my office doesn’t have the female toilet key for now, so we’ll have to use the handicap one till we get the replacement keys. (I was being polite here!)
Security Guard: You know, handicap toilets are meant for handicap people. Not uncle want to say anything to a pretty girl like you… but people complaining that non-handicap people using handicap toilet for too long.
Me: I’m sorry for any inconvenience. Are those people handicapped?
Security Guard: No…. They just don’t like the idea of it. You use the toilet for such a long time, they also cannot use.
Me: So let me get this straight. They’re not handicapped, I’m not handicapped- but they don’t like the idea of me taking a shit? Don’t tell me that none of them have taken a dump inside there before.
Security Guard: Aiya, don’t make my job difficult, can?
Me: Don’t worry. I’m not making it difficult for you. I’ll just make it difficult for them. As far as I’m concerned, that handicap toilet has 2 purposes. A primary purpose of letting people use it, a secondary purpose of additional structures for handicapped people to use it. However there are no handicapped people in this office building is there? And even if there were, if they aren’t using it- why can’t normal people get to use it as well?
Security Guard: I understand… But I’m just passing the message.
Me: I’m sorry if I made you feel like I’m blaming you. But you can ask those people- so what now? They’re going to hire a new staff and put under the job requirements, “Must be physically handicapped”, just so that they have the edge over the handicap toilet? That’s discrimination. A toilet is there for everyone to use- if no one is inside, whoever is in need of it has full right to use it if required. And that person also has the right to stay inside for as long as he or she needs to. This matter is irrelevant to the toilet being handicapped or not. Then why not the person use the female toilet straightaway then? Why must the person use the handicap toilet if he/she isn’t handicapped?
Security Guard: Er….
Me: Sorry, uncle. This doesn’t make sense to me. If that person wants to make another such complaint, you just tell them I’m at Unit **-**. Look for Geraldine, the Marketing Manager. There’s no reason for you to have to get in the middle of this.
Security: Oh, thank you, girl. You’re so kind!
He honestly looked super relieved somehow at the end.
I honestly didn’t mean to make his job difficult, I just found it utterly ridiculous to complain about such a thing.
Fine then! Next time I see that the handicap toilet is taken, I’ll just wait outside and if the person doesn’t come out limping/in a wheelchair/legless or whatever… I’ll go, “HOW DARE YOU USE THE HANDICAP TOILET, YOU UN-HANDICAPPED ONE?!”
Simply ridiculous, right?
If there’s a handicap person, I’ll definitely let that person have priority over me. But there isn’t! Good gosh.
So if that’s the case, the handicap toilet will be left entirely unused… And then what? It’s going to have maintenance problems because it is under-utilised.
All because why?
Some fucktard obviously has nothing to do at work but notice the length of time people spend in the handicap toilets and judge them for it.
Oh well, bitches be bitches.
