Paper towels in lieu of bog bumf...

why on earth would an adult....member of staff use paper towels instead of toilet paper????? Plenty of toilet paper in the dispensers.
Took a good close up picture of the blockage and mess and stuck it up in each of the staff toilets connected to the inspection manhole. No doubt some snowflake will take exception to the pictures and management will deem the picture more offensive than the thought of the caretaker manually removing it all from the manhole.

Quite likely, as you say, that management will take exception to the shock tactic.

Oh yes, I've had "The staff Code of Conduct" policy shoved in my face a few times after some of the emails I have sent, but no-ones ever complained about them personally cos I'm careful how I write them, but the management balk at CT's everywhere when they point out deficiencies in staff conduct yet, in briefings, staff constantly get criticised for not reaching goals, but that's alright, embarrassing people in front of others.

Oh yes the good old code of conduct, yes I have come across that a few times, back to as for in your face I pointed out to them that hourly paid workers are not expected to work more or less than their actual hours unless o/t is paid, oh sorry for that bit of information, a T.A was rather upset the other month and when I asked why she informed me that the h.t had told her that due to new assembly arrangements she should be listening to children read at 8.50am, well officially her hours start from 9am but comes in early to sort herself out for her working day, but because she is there they took advantage of this, so at 10 minutes a day x 5 days = 50 minutes a week x that over 38 weeks that = 31+ hours over a school year for free, you should have seen her face!!! remember lads and lasses a favour today is your duty tomorrow, so add those minutes up, because you will not get any better thought of.so be careful what you do.

Yeah Smithy why would someone use paper towels? However years ago when paper towels did not exist we had roller towels. Every day the towels which were thick cotton would be changed then washed in a good old twin tub. And every day in the male toilet the towel was covered in brown stuff.Never did find the culprit but what kind of brain thought it was their personel A wipe i don't know.

As I suspected, they were taken down the following day...I was off so will see if anyone says owt on Monday...which I very much doubt. I think next time I will remove it all again and just chuck it back in the toilets instead!
