A few years back I used to work at a Kroger, which used to be a 24 hour local grocery store, as a midnight shift stock boy . Much like any business we had an employee bathroom. During the first week I was working there I had a run in with the local bum. At the time I didn’t know he was the local bum but apparently he was very comfortable with store.
Of no surprise one day I had to use the employee bathroom around 4 am. I entered the stall to take care of business and when I emerged I saw an image that I quite unfortunately will carry with me for the rest of my life. I emerge to the site of a ragged older guy standing naked with one leg balanced on the sink. He was clearly washing his balls with hand soap and paper towel. I exited the bathroom and immediately searched for the night shift supervisor. When I found him in a hurry I told him about the horror that I just witnessed. He told me not to worry about it because he has to tell the guy to leave a couple nights a week. For whatever reason the guy seems to like to wash his balls in our employee bathroom so he doesn’t have to have an awkward conversation with a customer. The night manager then continued with whatever he was doing at the time with seemingly no rush to get rid of the bum.
From that night forward I always tried to avoid the employee bathroom. I know that I wasn’t the only employee to witness this guy washing up. I wonder why the store never banned the guy from the store for going into the employee area only on a regular basis.
