Everybody's had a crappy job, but imagine if your job was just that. Janitors and custodians are the unsung heroes running the scenes behind any well-operating school, hospital or office. They stay until the wee hours of the morning cleaning up wee. When sh*t hits the wall, it is literally their duty to wipe it off. Custodial work is not for the lazy or the faint of heart, so we've learned.A brilliant mind over at Reddit posed the ultimate question to janitors across the world: what was the most WTF moment of their career? If you think it's just cleaning up your run of the mill mess, you will be very rudely awakened. Grab your mops and barf buckets, because it's about to get dirty.
"When I was janitorial at Walmart, I had to clean one of the most unholy messes I have ever seen. It was a Saturday like any other, I was messing around in the back trying to look busy, and I get a page to the front bathrooms for a mess. I thought it was something minor, maybe a spill, full trash, etc. BUT NO. I get up there and the lady that I was working with was walking out of there gagging. So I mentally prepare myself for what I am about to see. I walk in with my cart, open the stall, and I see what I can only imagine is what hell looks like. It looks as if someone had exploded diarrhea F*CKING EVERYWHERE. Just climbed to the ceiling like some sort of white trash Spiderman, and let lose. It was horrifying, and of course I was the only one who could clean it, the other folks couldn't stand the smell without puking. So I manned up and got to it. It took almost an hour, and a whole jug of bleach, and I got it clean. That was about the point I realized $7.70 an hour isn't nearly enough to deal with that."
"When I was a kid I did maintenance for the county park system. In a women's restroom at the home base park we started the day at, someone left a turd the length and almost width of a loaf of bread. It was bent and you could tell they tried their hardest to flush it. We called several guys over the radio to drive over and see this thing. Then we used a piece of wood to finally chop it up and flush it down for good.
I've never seen a sh*t that big since, and I've always wondered how something like that could even be passed."
