    Default Wwyd: Saturday night shoes (sort of) scenario

    You're in a swimming pool change room. There's a lot of people in bare feet walking around as they have just come from the pool.

    Your preschooler goes to the toilet (bare feet) to do a wee. When all of a sudden the person in the cubicle next to you ... Well let's just say you notice red bodily fluid (the size of 2 x 50 cents) on the ground at the border between the two cubicles. It's not hard to miss as the person is trying to clean the mess with toilet paper. When they 'finish' cleaning you still see a darkish smudge - someone who hadn't witnessed the events probably wouldn't realise what it was. Your child isn't in imminent danger of stepping in it as he is fortunately positioned on the opposite side of the cubicle.

    What would you do?
    What do you think I did?

    Happy Saturday night!

    Ps: yes this is a fluff thread and yes there are more important things going on in the world.

    How does that happen firstly? Don't u wipe when sitting on the toilet and in the 2 seconds to pull pants up u wouldn't drip? Gross.
    I would have gone straight to front counter to get a cleaner in there asap as there was blood on floor

    Firstly - ewwwwwwwww!!!!! So gross.

    I would have gone straight to staff and told them so that they could disinfect the area.

    Also, if the person had left I would have put a big wad of toilet paper over it so no-one would step in it.

    Eta - if the person was still there I'd discreetly tell them that they'd missed a spot, and hope they went back to clean it up.

    Edited to delete dumbness. I've got the dumb tonight.

    I'd probably think "eww" and leave it at that. The cubicles would get cleaned at some point. I'm clearly not too bothered about cleanliness
    What you did? I'm thinking told staff...or possibly cleaned it yourself if you happened to have gloves on you

    I would notify staff. It's a blood product, therefore it needs to be attended to.
