- Why is every square inch of the floor always wet? Not flooded like a pipe burst, or something overflowed (maybe the tears of overworked students?), but just an unsettling layer of slimy, liquid sadness.
- Why aren’t there bathrooms on the first floor? (Also, what is technically the first floor? The ground floor? This is a constant point of disagreement among my friends.)
- How often does someone clean off the graffiti from the stalls? Some of my favorite gems, such as “I’m tired of f**** boys who can’t f****,” as well as the classic, “YOU are beautiful” have been wiped away and I haven’t gotten the chance to say a proper goodbye.
- Re: single bathrooms in the Reading Room. For the love of god, have some mercy on your fellow students—you know what I’m talking about.
- Re: the upstairs bathrooms. What a paradise! Totally underused, but that’s why they’re the nicest bathrooms in the whole library.
- Sometimes I’ll walk into the Reading Room bathrooms and there’s just a copious amount of toilet paper strewn all over the floor. There’s no way you could accidentally lose grip of the roll and do this either. Now, I feel like I should clean it up because it’s a hindrance to the bathroom process, but it’s not my mess! But, then the next person—who, by the way, has been WAITING for their turn because this has suddenly turned into a WWII bread line—is going to think I did that. So, thanks.
- Why don’t the toilets flush? I don’t know…seems like a pretty rudimentary feature of a BATHROOM.
- This isn’t directly related to Tisch in particular, but still applicable: What is the appropriate response when someone opens the door on you? It’s always like some sort of, “aHH!,” but often times I find myself apologizing, as if it’s my fault some stranger waltzed into my stall uninvited (see this Inside Amy Schumer sketch), but I feel like that’s not right either. Any thoughts?
