The Bush Carrier Has a Head 'Vandal' Flushing Towels

Bush CO says carrier's toilet system isn't as bad as described | HamptonRoads.com | PilotOnline.com

Crazy, they once went days without a working toilet.

How about installing security cams to watch the heads to see what they are flushing.


ugh, how would you like that duty watch.

Re: The Bush Carrier has a head vandal flushing towels

I have been in a submarine where there was only 2 toilets: 1 for p**ing only (no paper inside) and the other one for sh*tting, kept locked. The key was kept in the engine control room, and you had to give your name to get it.

This way, everybody was paying attention.

Threre's a big difference between a carrier with around 5,000 souls aboard with the Air Wing and a submarine with something lss than 200.

Re: The Bush Carrier Has a Head 'Vandal' Flushing Towels

I was on a carrier for 5 yrs....it only took a few days for me to realize...bring your own paper! I once searched an hour for TP. All my care packages included a 6 pack of charmin!!! We had issues with heads but never all of them. I doubt it is as bad as described. one morning I was awoken to the worst smell i have ever smelled, a cht pipe had broken in our berthing and put 1" of sewage in our berthing...i didnt go crying to mommy. SH!T happens be a man and deal with it!
