[Ed. – The story puts one in mind of the sign that reads ‘Do not throw cigarette butts in toilet; it makes them soggy and hard to light.’ The setting for the post is Strathclyde University in Scotland, where foreign students have displayed what the author’ refers to as inappropriate’ toilet habits.]
The memo, posted on Thursday, was sent by the operations management team of the University’s Technology and Innovation Centre.
It read: ‘Given the incidence of people pooing in bins, showers and the likes, can I please remind all TIC occupants that the toilets have been provided for that specific purpose.
‘All bodily fluids, solids and toilet paper must be disposed of down the toilet.
‘While I appreciate that the TIC population is multi-cultural and different countries have different practices, here in the UK the accepted practice is to use only the WC.’
An insider told the Daily Record that they ‘couldn’t imagine’ the bizarre problem as a place as high-tech as the TIC.
They added: ‘The building houses some of the most intelligent brains int he world – yet they don’t appear to know how to use the toilet.
‘The cleaners are sick of coming across poo and used toilet paper in places it just shouldn’t be.’
