Hate your job? (3)

I once rode a train in Egypt that had this type of plumbing (I was surprised to find).

Excrement and urine shower Zurich tunnel workers

Construction workers at the main railway station in Zurich have issued an ultimatum to rail operator SBB, threatening to stop working if excrement continues to fall from the ceiling of an alleyway they are building.

The problem derives from the fact that some of the old carriages on Swiss trains use toilets that deposit faeces directly onto the tracks. The human waste usually stays in place until it dries or the rain washes it away.

But an exception occurs whenever someone uses the toilets on trains stopped at Zurich station.

Construction workers operating below tracks 10,11,12,13,15 and 16 have reported receiving frequent faecal showers from cracks in the ceiling of the passageway where they are working.
