PRINCETON, NJ — Every weekday morning, janitor Natasha Bowman walks into a men''s bathroom in the fourth entryway of Blair Hall at Princeton University knowing what she''ll see: A large pile of unused toilet paper on the floor of a particular toilet stall, according to The Daily Princetonian.
Bowman has given a special name to the student who leaves behind an average of one roll of toilet paper a week with this strange habit: He is "the toilet paper fetish guy," the article noted.
"He puts it in the corner like a dog who says, ''This is my spot,''" said Bowman.
"What is the purpose? Does he leave it there and use it when he comes in again? It''s driving me up the wall, every single day," Bowman added.
According to the article, after 22 years on the job, Bowman is well-prepared for her daily tasks: She always brings a change of clothes, for example, since she finds bottles filled with urine in the trashcans outside students'' rooms — every single day.
Many similar episodes of student negligence in matters of cleanliness arise throughout the year, and on a campus with some of the most capable, ambitious and socially aware scholars in the nation, it seems counterintuitive that students leave public spaces in such poor conditions, the article stated.
