Do you respect toilet cleaners?
People have different job positions and sometimes can be snobs and look down on others who don't have the same kind of job. Do you acknowledge toilet cleaners in the workplace or in any other public place?
I acknowledge everyone. Sure every job is different, but also important in its own way. I never look down upon anyone because of what he or she does for a living. We all need money for our basic necessities.
Where would we be without toilet cleaners. Everyone should be treated equally and all jobs as important as one another.
I agree that all people deserve basic respect, but to say that all jobs should be viewed equally is not correct. If a surgeon and toilet cleaner both died, would they leave the same economic gap? You could replace the TC tomorrow, but not the surgeon
I beg to differ Robert. A toilet cleaner is a lot more useful to more people than a rocket scientist, but I still think their contributions to the world should be compared when they die. It is the type of person you are in life that matters.
We each are important in this world each job has to be done. We would be self centered to think we have a more important job than the next person. Look around, that's why we have such a mess on our hands, people not respecting each for their purpose.
Each individual serves a purpose and will be missed in the same way. Thank you
No. When I encounter a person in a public restroom cleaning I tend to say "thank you". In my mind that has the same power and empowerment as a tip to waiter or waitress.
In the workplace since I worked nights by myself I put to end the arguing between co-workers in the 'office place' by doing that task for about ten years. If they complained I simply said, "Do it yourself then. It is not my job description."
The wake up call came when I placed a sponge at each sink and one of those containers with Clorox wipes upon each toilet. Next, the sign that said "Be Courteous to the next person!" Besides living alone I have been doing that task for eons.
I respect everyone. That job is not a fun job but look at the service they are providing to you wherever you go. It is a necessity to the health of the general public. I have observed those with this job and realized they take their jobs very seriously , take pride in their work, and tend to be humble people. Everyone has a purpose and place here, everyone can't be a Doctor Attorney ect. It's a good thing we are unique and have different feelings ideas. All things to keep this world rolling have to be done. This is a paid job, we should be thankful they are doing it. Funny thing is, although it's many peoples best kept secret , most of of do the same thing in our homes unless we are fortunate enough to have maid service. It's just not something we put on face book, or discuss over coffee, "cleaned the toilet today" isn't the hot topic for sure! How do people feel about those they hire who come into their homes and clean their toilets? Thankful, appreciative, hopefully so. They should be, that there are people out there who will do this for you. Soooo, the world goes round we all play a very important part. With that said, we tip hair dressers, waitresses, bartenders, cab drivers, bell boys and a few other people of public service. Please the next time you are in a public restroom, and see someone doing this great service, know the wages are quite modest, smile thank them for their service and a tip would truly be most welcome and unexpected. It will let them know we appreciate your hard work. You might just make someones day. This practice is noticed in higher end places, but really is unheard of in many middle class places.
I have never seen one on the job, but I sure am glad they do it!
And you have reminded me - cleaning our toilet is on my to-do list today!
I sure do respect toilet cleaners, and I always will!
Every year my husband and I attend the New York State Fair. Their restrooms are the cleanest I have ever seen. The cleaner has dishes of candy on the immaculate sinks, also hand lotion. She is there the whole time, and she cleans the toilets consistently. I also see her mopping the floors. I know this because I visit the bathrooms a lot with the amount of liquid I drink.
This past week my friend and I went to Cleveland, Ohio, to visit the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. On the way home we ate at a restaurant. The toilet was filthy...the bottom of it was covered with black grainy dirt, the floor was dirty...The food was good, but as far as I'm concerned I would never eat there again.
I scrub our toilet every other day...but most often every day. I would die if a friend dropped in and asked to use the bathroom and saw a filthy toilet.
DDE, Every one reading this is a toilet cleaner! Unless we use an outhouse.
Respecting a toilet cleaner is respecting yourself.
Thanks for a great question, Sparklea
HMM. my daughter lives off the grid and has an outhouse, and guess what she cleans that outhouse on a regular basis, it's just not a toilet .
Penny G, WOW, thank you! I did not know outhouses could be actually cleaned. I have always been fascinated with them -even taken pictures of them. I Would love to see you do a hub on that subject. PS: NO insult intended re: my mention of outhouse
Hi Sparklea ''Respecting a toilet cleaner is respecting yourself.'' You are so right thank you for sharing your informative answer.
While I very rarely see them at work, I can admire what they do and I find that jobs like these - while not very pleasant - are some of the most important. If we didn't have our binmen for example, our streets would be festering with vermin and disease, the same for our bathroom cleaners or street sweepers. And it's not just what they do but how they do it; I don't know about you but I much prefer physical labour than fancy suits and sitting at a desk, and I think it's there where you can really see the results of their work.
So yes I'd say I respect and appreciate what they do, especially if they can't find any other role but muddle through it.
Of course. They are only as good as everyone else. They are making an honest living to provide for their family. No one should be looked down upon. We are all the same in the eyes of God.
Yes I do. Our cleaner gets a friendly welcome in our office of an afternoon and we include him in all of our events and festivities!
We should respect all job and laborers. Gandhiji told Cleanliness is Next to God. So we should definitely love and respect the workers who do an appreciable job called cleaning.
I appreciate anyone who makes my life more comfortable and convenient by doing a job well. I make a point of acknowledging people and saying "thank you" regardless of the task. On the other point, I would have more respect for a humble laborer than an arrogant professional. I dislike "attitude."
They deserve it. Most of them are respectful too and I know even a single greeting you share with them, it will make them happy as well despite of the hard work they are doing everyday.
here in malaysia, most people ignore toilet cleaners, respect? well, they scold walk in customers, so how to respect them?

Why is it that Christians believe that Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Native Americans, etc. are all wrong in their beliefs and that they'll all go somewhere horrible when they die? Why can't we just accept that other people have different lives and different experiences, and let them believe how they...

Respecting people is very important, mostly yourself. The respect you show to others is an immediate reflection of your own self-respect. People who do not respect themselves, tend to disrespect others. Self-respect is the cornerstone of all virtue, I want to inspire people to respect to a higher...

According to Malcolm Gladwell in his book, Outliers, the answer is no.Gladwell showed repeatedly that whether people who succeeded or not, depended a great deal on how much wealth and education their parents had. For example, children who have the benefit of a private school learn a lot of things...

How old is too old for little boy to go to bathroom with mom in public restroom?What age is it "safe" to let a little boy go to men's room by themselves in public?
by Celeste Wilson 7 years ago
At what age will you let your child go into a public restroom alone?I am a mother of a 12 year old son and I am very nervous about mall safety. I don't allow him to go to the bathroom on his own. When he is in there on his own, I have no idea what is happening.
