Custodians And Janitors, What Is Your Most WTF Moment From Being On The Job?

Whatever they make, give them triple.

Let's get one thing straight: Custodians and janitors are the backbones of any institution.


They often have to deal with the unspeakable messes other reckless people leave behind, and sometimes don't get the appreciation or pay they deserve for it.


So I'm curious, if you are or were a custodian/janitor, what is the worst mess or situation you've ever had to deal with while on the job?

Perhaps someone decided to purposefully smear feces (or literal blood) on the wall of a school restroom and you were called in to scrub it all away.


(My poor father, who is a custodian, has dealt with this MULTIPLE times.)

Or maybe some drunk person projectile vomited into the urinal of a public restroom and you had to scoop it out yourself.


Perhaps you've had to clean a men's gym locker room shower and had to unclog a drain that contained a mix of body hair, head hair, full-on pubes, and other things you couldn't even pinpoint.
