Things I've pulled out of an aircraft lavatory:

Water bottle

Used Pads/Tampons

An Entire In-Flight Meal

Massive log that refused to flush (yes, that kind of log)

Cell Phone

Tennis Shoe

And my all time favorite...

Someone's Purse


Some of those things could be attributed to women. Others could be unisex, I suppose. The bottom line is that people think the toilets on airplanes are either storage facilities or can flush anything. I'll admit, it's not exactly easy to hit the mark if you're in turbulence but people are generally disgusting - especially people in large groups who can anonymously walk out of the bathroom and blame the clog on the person before them.

I think we should have a warning device or clacker that sounds whenever someone leaves the bathroom in disarray. If there's urine on the seat or the toilet is clogged because some idiot tried to flush something that wouldn't flush, a huge sign with arrows and bells and whistles should go off saying "LOOK EVERYONE HE/SHE RUINED THE LAVATORY!!!"

Years ago, two of us pulled a used diaper from a diesel-9. We mentioned a large sum of money to a couple of the right people, and said that we were keeping it quiet. Within days the entire airport was convinced that we pulled out 15 grand in a brown paper bag. Man, I love screwing with the old busy bodies.

Yep. That will be the messiest lav on that plane. Women's restrooms are absolutely disgusting. They make men's public restrooms look like a pristine operating room.
