I gotta go

You have been holding it since you left the Yonge & Bloor subway station but now, at the end you decide that you can’t wait any longer. You climb up to the 2nd lowest level and walk away from the ticket collectors booth toward the Kennedy Station washrooms and this stench hits you from 10 meters away. Is this new? Some foul person hit the can just before you did? No, this is a normal part of having to go at Kennedy…

Maybe not the best early morning subject to write about but when it smells even in the morning you know there is an issue. Recently in the Toronto Star someone wrote about revamping Warden station but I think Kennedy is also due for something. The bathrooms (at least for men) are horrid, there is lots of empty space… not that I want it to turn into a shoppers paradise but why couldn’t they do something like at Warden or Eglinton station? (more vendors, shops, etc)

    I think the idea of you holding it down with your chin is by far the most hilarious… :)

    I second Stephen on that — your post is hilarious Abbas! I must say Stephen, the fact you can smell it in the morning flies in the face of TTC claiming that cleaning the stations at night makes for a cleaner environment.

    I think it was Bill Carroll who had a call-in segment on TTC washrooms, and a TTC janitor called in about it to agree they’re the worst in the city. I felt the need to use one once, walked in, my eyeballs bugged out at the, um, filth, suddenly decided I had amazing bladder control, and walked out at double time.
