Doesn’t the airport have restrooms?
Now, i’m a contractor working on your airplanes, but you’re scared to let me use your restoom because I might be a terrorist? Hmm…
“Menzies managers claimed that the men had permission to use the toilets at Horizon Airlines, but the men said they did once or twice and stopped after it was clear that they weren’t welcome there. Their attorney, Tom Spaulding, told jurors that Horizon employees probably were reluctant to let the men — basically strangers to them — into their facilities because of post Sept. 11 safety precautions. “
They were actually forced to urinate into a bucket, or only a bucket was provided as facilities with an option to just hold it?
If the only other option was to let their bladders explode, I’d say they were forced.
Just bring an extra bottle to work, it’s like recycling.
Could not be reached for comment:
“A company lawyer contended the men were fired because they kept using the bucket after being told not to.” Riiight, why don’t I believe that?
If it was too far to go to use the airport crappers, why couldn’t they have brought in a port-a-potty for them?
How would they manage a crap with just a bucket?
What a bunch of corporate wankers!
