16 Pieces Of Advice From The Women’s Bathroom At This Café

I don’t know what inspires people to not just graffiti bathroom walls, but actually write commands. And it’s ubiquitous — at least half of what you’ll read in any bathroom is a command of some sort. Bathroom graffiti-ers know that you’ve got nothing else to look at while you’re on the john (I mean, presumably), so it’s a good place to express an opinion. But commands? That takes an extra level of bravado.

One of the cafés where I occasionally work has graffiti ALL OVER their women’s bathroom (and, I assume, the men’s as well). For your benefit, I’ve collected the soundest pieces of advice from the young twentysomething women of Chicago.

Whether “home” to you means a room, an apartment, or an entire house, you deserve to love the place you live. But it can be overwhelming to find cute updates to your place, especially when window-shopping at Sephora is much more fun. Well, you’re in luck. Hunting for cute, affordable home decor just happens to be my #1 favorite pastime. In this new column, I’ll find cute ways to decorate your home, all for under $50.

There’s nothing quite as depressing as a bathroom with mold coating the tub, hair carpeting the floor, and toothpaste caked onto the sink. Why do people let their bathrooms — arguably the room of your house you want most clean — turn into a big dump? (Pun totally intended.) You should take pride in a room you spend time in every day! I can’t make you sweep the hair linoleum, but I can encourage you to get organized and spruce up your loo with some color. Here are cute ways to cute-ify your bathroom, none of which will break the bank: Keep reading »

Frisky Rant: Stop Being So Damn Disgusting In The Company Bathroom, Ladies

frisky-rant-stop-being-disgusting-in-bathrooms

I write this to you in the heat of the moment, still disgusted at what I just witnessed in the company ladies room. IT WAS NOT PRETTY. In fact, after slurping down several tall glasses of Long Island Iced Teas during a barbecue yesterday, I was forced to stop at a seedy, highway rest stop McDonald’s to pee, and I’m sad to report that their women’s restroom was cleaner than the one in my office building. But this isn’t just happening in my building. Gag-worthy workplace bathrooms— particularly ladies’ rooms— have become an epidemic. We can all relate. Keep reading »

Spring Cleaning Week at The Frisky has made it seem like we’re all a couple of Martha Stewarts hoovering Adderall. Lies! While we’re not gross-gross, I do feel it is my duty as a Frisky staffer to present an honest portrait of us: we’re a little gross. Julie’s desk is a wasteland of half-eaten snacks, Ami’s is covered in papers, mine has bagel crumbs stuck to coffee stains, and Amelia’s got a half-drunk plastic cup of red wine on hers that’s been sitting there for days. (Not even sure what that’s about — possibly this?) In conclusion, we probably shouldn’t be lecturing ANYBODY about cleanliness.

So, in the interest of full disclosure, we’re going to — anonymously! — share some gross things we do in the bathroom which we would never admit to doing.

Please don’t tell our mothers. Keep reading »

Today is a sad day. The Whole Foods at Union Square in Manhattan finally figured out my trick — I’ve been using their bathrooms as a public restroom without ever buying anything for years. As of today, there are now complicated locks on the door, requiring a Whole Foods-mandated door code, which you can only get on your Whole Foods receipt. My jig is up.

As someone with a very, uh, healthy digestive tract, I frequently find myself in need of a bathroom when I’m out and about. I’ve scoped out all the typical options, and have come up with a list of preferred pee spots when you’re in a bind. Some general rules: It may behoove you to carry a packet of tissues in your bag, just in case you find a terlet but no TP. And! Remember that just because a place serves food, doesn’t mean that they’ll have a restroom. Many places that have only one or two tables qualify as “take away” establishments and aren’t legally required to have public restrooms. Also, a little hand sanitizer couldn’t hurt either. Below, I’ve cataloged my list of preferred emergency pee spots, from most desired to least.  Please add your emergency pee solutions in the comments! Keep reading »
