Concordia, Your Toilets are Crap

Graphic Madeleine Gendreau

Hey Concordia—listen. I know it’s hard to maintain the bathrooms. There’re like, 46,000 students here. That’s a lot of people. Even more, that’s a lotta people who gotta go.

And that’s cool. That’s fine. I try my best to look past the horrible, glass-shattering noise that erupts from what seems like every faucet. When the toilet flushes and I notice that raunchy water splashes back up into the above-bowl atmosphere, I shrug it off. “‘Least it didn’t touch my butt,” I think to myself.

But you know what? It’s not that hard to keep a bathroom clean. Old facilities are one thing, but it’s a totally different story when there’s TP strewn about the floors like there was some kind of toilet paper party that I wasn’t invited to. I don’t get it.

That’s not even the worst part. The worst part is when I do my biz, only to realize that there’s no toilet paper left in the friggin’ stall! Why? ‘Cause it’s all over the fucking floor.

If Concordia administration can hand out $235,000 to terminated employees as if money were no object, then why can’t they invest in some more maintenance staff to tidy up the bathrooms?
