    It has nothing to do with not being taught, or being ignorant of how to properly use a bathroom. That's instinctive. We've been created to inherently avoid bio waste. People that poop in urinals do so as malcontents. They are unhappy in life and misery loves company. Feces from meat-eating animals like humans can spread disease.

    when you ask, "what is wrong with people", in regards to leaving a mess in a bathroom. at the very least, 2 thoughts pop into my mind

    1) they are just as messy at home, would you really wanna see thier home, or spend the night there..??

    2) they just have no respect for others property

    True. Appearance helps a lot. I respect people’s property and the rare occasion I’m in a high dollar office, I never have issues using their facilities

    Yes, this is a people problem. Last year while waiting to see one of my Neurologists I attempted to use the men's room near his office. These facilities are like what most professional offices have. A single stall (maybe a urinal) and a wash sink. This one had only one stall. The entire area around the stall was covered in recent urine. There was no way to get near it without stepping in the urine. I got the person with me to watch out for me as I made sure the ladies room was empty and used it. Since this is a Neuroligsts office I know from VERY close experience bladder control can be lost during some seizures. I notified the staff and they got it reported. Still a really pathetic situation!

    Well, that is a twofer. First,it is an editorial on how I see a lot of these comments. Whining about everything up to and including not having anything to whine about.

    No, I wouldn't want to see their homes. Sometimes when I look over at a truck next to me, I shake my head and wonder how they can live like that with the garbage piled high.

    Some drivers give those of us who stay at truck stops grief because they claim "real truckers" just grab an off ramp to take their breaks. I plan my trips carefully and stay at a truck stop every night for 3 reasons.

    1. Bathrooms. They aren't always the cleanest, but they're available when I need them first thing in the morning, or in the middle of the night if dinner didn't agree with me. Pissing in a parking lot is bad enough, but taking a dump next to your truck is just 3rd world kind of crap that shouldn't happen here.
    2. Garbage cans. There is absolutely no excuse to throw garbage out on the side of the road. Every single day I see pull offs and sometimes just on the shoulder of a highway, a pile of piss bottles and bags of trash. I'd love to catch one of these #######es in the act.
    3. Showers. Some drivers work and walk around without showering for many days or a week or more. I was in a Walmart DC driver's lounge waiting for my paper work one day. A driver walked in wearing loose fitting knee length shorts, and the stench from his ### drove me out of the room. My PFJ rewards card always has at least 5 showers on it, and I freely let other drivers use them when they need or can't afford one of their own.

    We aren't animals. I wish some drivers would stop acting like them.
