Message: When I arrived at this shelter on August 4, there was no soap in the east restroom on the third floor. A few weeks later, I heard another resident complain to the janitor, and the empty soap bag was removed, leaving only the empty shell of the dispenser. Its been like that up to today. I dont like to use that restroom, anyway, because you have to straddle the toilet to give the door enough clearance so you can exit, but the other two bathrooms on the floor are now out of soap, too, and Im wondering if it will ever be replaced. One of these is often not usable because the seat will not stay up, causing some residents to urinate on it. I normally avoid that bathroom, (the last to run out of soap), too, for this reason, but hold the seat up when I do, although it makes it harder to get my clothes out of the way. All three restrooms are missing bulbs in one of the two fixtures. Having the bulb in the mirror fixture is more useful when shaving than the one on the ceiling.
