(I work as maintenance/housekeeper in a retirement home. Due to the nature of my work and dealing with dementia, I always think I’ve seen it all. This happens shortly after a resident is transferred to a long-term care home and we are cleaning up the room to prepare it for a new resident.)

Me: (talking to the painter) Glad to see it’s not as bad in here as before. I had sprayed a LOT of air freshener in here just to get the smell out!

(Note, the resident was known for being extremely unhygienic. The room constantly smelled of feces as a result. I had been in the day prior and almost was sick from the smell.)

Painter: (nods) Yeah, it was pretty bad in here. S*** stains everywhere. I had to do the caulking and painting but first we had to try and clean the grill up.

Me: Yeah, I-wait, what?

Painter: (points to the heating/air conditioning unit located right under the window) There was s*** inside of it.

Me: You’ve GOT to be kidding me!

(He wasn’t kidding. Later, the head maintenance guy came around and took off the front covers of the unit. There was dried feces all over the grills inside. It proves to me that I never really see it all at my job, there will ALWAYS be something that surprises me.)
