The Bathroom Syndrome

Bathroom is a place for us to take bath, to clean up body from toxic metabolism wastes, to brush teeth to keep it shiny and healthy, and is a good place to induce inspiration for artists and writers. In most household, however, bathroom is likely the dirtiest place, smell bad and make us reluctant to go there until we are forced to do so.

Look at your toothbrush, while it cleans your teeth everyday, ask yourself how often do you wash it properly and thoroughly. What about the soap? We never or seldom wash it after using it, anyway why should we?

The place where we store the soap receives the same fate.

It seems that we unconsciously expect that all of those stuffs can clean themselves without any assistance from us. Since they can't do so, no wonder that they tend to be the dirtiest and smelliest things in our homes. This is what I called long time ago as the Bathroom Syndrome.

Luxurious homes tend to have clean bathrooms with good smells, but they are so not because the owner aware of the syndrome, rather because they spent a lot of money for it and want to keep their investment remains clean and shiny, and can be shown proudly to their guests. But are they really clean?

Life is full of surprises, and ironies. Judges, that suppose to uphold the law and ensure justice, are in the top list of people who violate the laws and act unjust in favor of those who provide them with the highest financial benefit. Police officers, lawyers, law makers, priests, ulemmas, public servants, doctors, auditors, parents, corporate executives, are all victims of the Bathroom Syndrome.

People are reluctant to go to police stations to get assistance, you know why. People say if you meet a lawyer and a snake, you'd better knocked down the lawyer first. Preaching people to purify mind and soul is the job of ulemmas and priests, and yet we still hear scandals involving them. Doctors can't diagnose their own illness, just like fortune tellers can't foretell their own fate.

In rich countries, just like in luxurious homes, those things tend to be cleaner, but quite often they are just nice showcases to foreign visitors. Inside, they are rotten already.

The message is plain and simple, knowing and understanding the existence of the Bathroom Syndrome phenomenon, somebody or some forms of body, shall continuously and regularly provide cleaning service assistance and supervision to those people, profession or institution, to keep them clean, shiny and odorous, since there's no way that they can do the cleaning by themselves.
