Happy now?

A few weeks ago, the paper towel dispenser in the doctors' lounge bathroom broke.

Now, we're not talking broke as in "crank came off and they put extra towels on top to use." I mean broke as in "fell off the fucking wall and shattered, leaving a gaping hole in the drywall" broke.

How this happened, I have no idea. The general consensus is that a surgeon was somehow involved.

Anyway, I digress.

So, naturally, several of us complained about it to maintenance (drying our hands on our shirts seems unsanitary). After 2 weeks of us pissing and moaning, one of them finally promised it would be repaired this week.

So, yesterday morning, this is what greeted us:

Thanks, guys.

VERY creative! And we use those same ridiculously flimsy trash bags in our hospital, too. I'm sure "parts are on order" for the real replacement. As doctors, you should hold out for one of those motion activated numbers.

But the top administrator got a seven figure year end bonus, right?

They do know that the paper towel supplier provides the dispenser gratis and will install a new one on request. Of course not, because as a society we are reduced to 3% who know anything.
Having to control the other 97% in their daily activities. Solutions people, not deferral of problems. C'mon, I am losing my patience.

This is how I would have to wash my hands upon seeing this:

Remove the first two layers of paper towels. Use those towels to turn sink on. Wash hands, leave water running. Get another two layers to turn sink off. Remove two more layers to dry hands. But wait! One more layer to open bathroom door.

Medication may help. Ask your doctor.

Im guessing,
this is the 3rd or 4th one the surgeon pulled off the wall in the past six months,
and repair team is "sending a message"

Come on Anonymous at 12:58. don't you think that's bit of overkill? You only need ONE layer each for all that not two.

"Note: this doubles as the toilet paper dispenser, so please only use as much as necessary."

Ha! And, haha.

The big question: when it's time to replace the roll, do you get a new garbage bag or will they just re-use the old one?

Piss on it, I say.
