Bathrooms in the Wintertime…Teachers Will Know…

coldbathroom

So yeah, I may have exaggerated a bit in the sense that yes, if I had to go that badly, I would suck it up and go take care of business…but it still stands that the bathrooms at public schools here are COLD in the winter (along with the hallways).

It is basically like going into an ice box and I can’t even imagine what the female teachers have to go through. Guess it’s a combination of not so great insulation in the schools, opening windows, and no heaters in the hallways or the bathrooms.

I usually power walk to the bathroom when it’s time to make a trip.

    And never any towels when you wash your hands in the freezing water.

    • Dominic ‘Dom’ Dinkins

      Yup…this too, though I’ve been lucky with my school this year.

  • Michael Aronson

    Public schools -> any building in which there is a window to the outside in the bathroom.

    • Dominic ‘Dom’ Dinkins

      Lol also true.

  • DNogitsune

    That is no exaggeration.

  • Phillip S

    The worst part is when you need to wash your hands with ice cold water because the school turns off the hot water to save money.

    • Jess K

      TURN OFF? does hot water ever ever ever work?? haha

      • Phillip S

        haha. yeah. I’ve been to a few places and when you flick the tap across to “hot” nothing comes out at all.

    My bathroom is freaking baltic…and it’s a squatter. And as if things couldn’t get any worse, it’s also unisex; one stall for men, one for women, with the urinal in a separate little area where the door is never closed. I can’t tell you how many penises I’ve seen.

    • Dominic ‘Dom’ Dinkins

      lol omg

  • Stephen Leavy

    I hated the bathroom at my last hagwon. The water was so cold it was physically painful to wash your hands. They would cramp up.
