The administration at a Scottish university felt compelled to remind foreign students to only poop in toilets. And by all means, I suppose, to not wipe their asses with their homework and turn it in to be graded.
Then, the university’s leaders went to their knees begging multiculturals to forgive their insensitivity. You simply cannot make this stuff up. Britain is like Monty Python all the time!
A university has told its students to stop defecating in the showers and dustbins, blaming the problem on the “multi-cultural population,” according to The Telegraph.
Students at the University of Strathclyde were warned over their inappropriate toilet habits, and told that that although “different countries have different practices”, they should be aware that “here in the UK the accepted practise is the use only the WC”.
The email, sent by the operations management team at the university’s Technology and Innovation Centre on Thursday, raised concerns following complaints from cleaners at the state-of-the-art facility.
“Given the incidence of people pooing in bins, showers and the likes – can I please remind all TIC [Technology and Innovation Centre] occupants that the toilets have been provided for that specific purpose,” students were told.
“All bodily fluids, solids and toilet paper must be disposed of down the toilet. While I appreciate that the TIC population is multi-cultural and different countries have different practices, here in the UK the accepted practice is to use only the WC.”
The university later apologised for the email, saying that it “contained sentiments that are completely contrary to our institutional values.”
They said the email should never have been sent, and vowed to ensure that “all future communications are appropriate and are consistent with our ethos”.
Strathclyde University’s Technology and Innovation Centre opened in 2015. Located in central Glasgow, the official website for the facility describes it as a home for “researchers, engineers and project managers from academia and industry, who will work side-by-side on projects spanning future cities, manufacturing, health and energy.”
A spokeswoman for the University said: “We have apologised for any offence caused to colleagues. The email contained sentiments that are completely contrary to our institutional values and should not have been sent. It was recalled as soon as it came to our attention and we swiftly issued an apology to staff.
“We are reviewing the circumstances relating to its circulation and are taking steps to ensure that all future communications are appropriate and are consistent with our ethos.”
Wait! The resident geniuses at the Powdered Wig Institute for Sanity have proposed a solution – require a DNA sample with every admissions application. Then, when doodoo is found in places other than toilets, test it for DNA and expel the nasty owner forthwith!
