Sheetz, Edinboro

5930 Rt. 6N West, Edinboro, PA 16412
Grade: D+

I don't care if you are a gas station off of the highway in the middle of not-exactly-happening Edinboro, Pennsylvania; there is no excuse for your men's room to be in such a state of disrepair, especially at 10:30pm on a Thursday night when traffic must be at its lowest. 

I do not expect anything particularly wonderful from gas station restrooms, and would be more or less content with reasonably clean, utilitarian facilities. But it appears as though even that is too much to ask of this Sheetz location. Though the restroom itself is in pretty good condition, I was shocked at the amount of garbage lying around on the floor. There were paper towels crumpled up on the floor near the trash can and toilet paper and toilet seat covers lying all about the stall. The sink was pretty filthy, and clearly had not been cleaned in some time. There was also a nearly-finished roll of toilet paper wedged between the handicap railing and the stall wall. Was someone really too lazy to install it in the dispenser?

Strangely, the restroom smelled all right -- as though it had recently been cleaned -- and a "wet floor" sign stood in the middle of the floor. This leads me to believe that an employee came in, pushed a mop around the floor and did not bother to pick up the garbage or clean the sink. Such negligence simply cannot be ignored. 

You had better believe that I contacted Sheetz to express my discontent as per the signage below. I implore all of my readers to make use of such contact information if any facilities that you come across are not up to par. We should not be required to tolerate such filth, and need to stand up and make our voices heard whenever possible. How else are things going to change? Remember: all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
