Default What is up with the mens room at Barnstorm

I have used the mens room twice in the past two weeks. toilet paper rolls thrown on the floor. Water on the floor stinking of urine. And yesterday all the same and worse. Add to that no soap in the dispensers. I reported it to a man with a ear piece. He stated they have extremely busy. Poor excuse.

I was at Brownwood on New Year's Eve and never saw so many people. The theater's restrooms are open to the public and if you noticed, at the square there was hundreds of young people as well as old, it's vacation time and relatives are visiting. Go in July and it's a totally different atmosphere.

Just a thought....hire help for "the season". I'm sure there are young people out there who could use the work. No excuse for not keeping the restrooms in pristine condition.

Did you contact the Manager on duty at Brownwood? Probably not.

Two words come to mind as to what the problem is - Filthy Pigs; probably the same class of people that trash the mail station areas with junk mail and litter the MMP's with food and soda containers.

And I wouldn't be surprised if the Ladies room was close to the condition of the men's room also.

They have. Seasonal employees have been hired. I know one.

Maybe, maybe not. But I don't believe that the employees clean the restrooms. They are done at night after everything closes, just like all the rec centers, by a janatorial service. So, extra seasonal employees would not make a difference here.

Also, the description in the first post seems to indicate an act of vandalism rather than the normal it-gets-dirty-by-use. So, what is a reasonable time for the theater to react to that?

Lot’s of visitors especially young people were here and are still here going in and out using those bathroom’s that are open to the public. It’s a shame and it’s a full time job because people are slobs when it’s someone else’s property and not their home. Women’s is just as bad.

The beginning of the fall of the Roman Empire. Air conditioning at Sea Breeze has been broken for weeks according to sources who work out there.

As I read this, I was thinking that due to location, it attracts many many non-Villagers. Every time we go there, we comment on how many “others” are taking advantage of the free entertainment. Not much can be done I guess. Just happy to be up north. *♀️

All of the squares are open to the public.
