Yes I remember the "pigs berthing" label and the "Nothing to do with Me Club". I never had either assigned to me, most of us girls were pretty uptight about the cleanliness of our berthing and we were all in HCO so we had to "set the example".
After I got married we didn't get a berthing for over 6 months. When we did, it was 1/2 a room with a piece of drywall thrown up dividing the one window in half and down the middle of the room. The second berthing we got was actually hella awesome, with a loft bed that gave us more space and an actual deadbolt on the door.
We NEVER had access to a bathroom other than that shared by the rest of the floor. When I was on the 2nd floor of Main Bldg we went up to the 6th floor to access the one bathroom there, and same when in 2D berthing. So did everyone else in Main Bldg. And no one was assigned to clean it, either, so it was truly horrible. I wanted to tackle it sometimes but with no help and no cleaning supplies it was kinda impossible.
Broken windows, broken doors, exposed subflooring, this was all totally normal. After a while you don't see it anymore.
Somebody has to speak for these people.... no more running. I aim to misbehave.... If you can't do something smart, do something right. (Serenity)
