This is my open letter to all camps that will have line of site to a Porta potty bank. No it's not slumming, it's a GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY to join in the largest participatory art installation on the playa. What I need your help on is to volunteer to be a Pottie Friend.
Nobody wants to do a 2 in a paperless loo!
Please pass this around, there's got to be participants the will jump at this chance.
The gig is really easy. Me or someone in the Pottie Project will come to your camp and ask for help distributing toilet paper at night. We'll provide you with plenty of tp , and you simply "host" it. We'll give you a sign that says "MORE TP" that needs to be clearly visible to the potty doors.The reason this is so important is that half the population comes out at night, and the units aren't serviced for safely reasons. I have signs advertising this service, so there may be visitors who'll do it for you. Isn't that nice?
You can end your responsibilities right there. You're already doing everyone a HUGE service. Kick back and enjoy the warm feeling of helping the community.
Now if you're really enthusiastic about this project, At dusk, just go to each unit and check if more tp is needed, enough to last the night. Getting excited? then I welcome you to moop around the bank, because it quickly becomes a moop catastrophe, and we don't want that debris blowing into your camp.
But wait, there's more! if you see or hear of a potty that some ass-munch has shat upon the seat, then zip that shit! We can supply you w zip ties for this purpose (not your shade structure, but we don't inventory) Seriously, I do mean actual feces on the seat! Don't worry about piddle, it could just be water. Don't taste it to find out, just move on. And finally, if the toilet looks too full to last the night, like its a few inches from the lip (maybe some jackass dumped their gray water in there) zip the door. This is a health concern, not to be done frivolously, or all the zip ties will be removed, and we're back to sitting in shit. The USS guys will remove them. I call this "fair warning". See, it can be fun for everyone!
So thank you for any help you can provide for this most essential resource. We all want a safe and pleasant excremental experience each and every time.
And thank you for participating!
