For sure. I'm just adding some notes to compare with the Thompson Center bathrooms. Naturally, I'm sure there are hundreds of skeezy bathrooms throughout the city.

Fair enough.

I only added the Thompson Center bathrooms due to the fact that they are right in the Loop, but yet are so terribly maintained.


I will also add the parking lot at Trader Joe's... especially on the weekend (more specifically the one on Lincoln just North of Addison). Its like the store has a signal emanating from it that causes people to go stupid once they enter the lot. A total C.F., to say the least.

Pretty good article. Thompson Center DMV is actually the best one I've been to, although maybe the ones in Ohio just suck worse. I did not use the bathroom there.

I have a mixed feeling of both pride and shame in saying I scored a perfect 9/9. Thompson center bathrooms are indeed a wreck, but I've seen worse...some that would rival the "worst toilet in Scotland" scene from trainspotting...none of them in Chicago though.

Other things to avoid:

-the "**** compartment" on the ends of CTA cars.
-it's covered by Michigan Avenue, but specifically, American Girl Place

I don't think it's there anymore thanks to Aqua Tower, but:
The elevator that took you from Columbus S of the river adjacent to the firehouse down to the golf course/restaurant where the eastside development is today. This must be the nastiest elevator in the history of the world. We brought tissues with us every time to push the down button. A group of us took that once to get lunch at the restaurant. When we were preparing to get on, we were welcomed with a scene of two homeless guys who hadn't showered in weeks screwing each other in the elevator. Not cool.

Ive done 1,4,5,6,7, and 8. I can honestly say I hate #1 the most. I went to comcast at least 3 times before finally saying "f**k it!" and moving on to RCN.

Anyway, I would like to add the Taste of Chicago. The crowds paired with over priced food that I can buy anytime to better quality standards has really turned me off from that fair. I cannot stand the Taste.

I am amazed the Sox fans haven't stepped up to rail on the 4th world conditions that are Wrigley's bathrooms. This is spoken as a lifelong Cub fan who grew up a mile from the park, btw.

The troughs are effective/efficient enough, but is it too much to ask to get some TVs in there so there's something to distract you/you can stay on top of the game?

Wrigley's bathrooms are fine, and you're proving that point if you're complaining about lack of TVs.

Agree w Wrigley bathrooms, ick, I just don't want to be that close to another dude while he and I are touching our, well, you know.

Along the lines of Comacst... Have you ever gone to the central UPS facility because you needed that package asap and you missed the delivery person? Holy s**t, what a CF, an endless purgatory of waiting and zero empathy from, what I'd say are the most unhappy, least motivated, couldn't give one iota abt you and yr package, employees!
