Public Air Freshener

WARNING! This blog will be petty in nature. I will not even pretend that I don't know that it's petty, I do, regardless of this, I will proceed.
I have never been a fan of using public restrooms, I prefer the comfort and safety of my own private bathroom at home. There are times however, when the bowels or the bladder simply will not allow for waiting until you get home, today was one of those days! I've been slacking on my water intake so this morning I decided to kick it up a notch. By lunch I had consumed close to a gallon of water and I had to go reeeaaallly bad!
I work for a large corporation in a large office building so that bathroom has multiple stalls and plenty of space, no cramped little box with a toilet and a sink. One would expect that a bathroom of this size would not allow for the lingering of the foul smell of, well you know, yet today I learned that not to be the case.
Here is where my problem comes in... The company has been generous enough to provide cans of air freshener in EVERY stall in the bathroom. The cans are conveniently placed in each stall for anyone to use. On this morning, someone apparently thought there must be a CHARGE for the air freshener since they decided NOT to use it after leaving a smell in the air that ranked right up there with public landfill!! How hard is it to extend your arm, grasp the can, and push the little button??!!?? Those three simple little steps would save those that come behind you from being nauseated from the stench of what you left behind. It's free! It's PUBLIC use air freshener! Use it!
Like I said, it's petty, but I had to tell you... SOMEBODY out there needs to ponder why they don't use the public air freshener. (baffled, shaking head and walking away)

    Some people just don't care and have no regard for others.
