Oh, gawwwwd!! That's awful! I remember helping my dad redo an apartment formerly occupied by a young male. I think that slob peed more against the wall NEXT to the toilet than he did IN the toilet! GROSS ME OUT!
Your story just made me think of another one:
I had a tenant (a woman in her early 40's) once call me to tell me there was a "problem" with the tile in her shower. She thought it was "maybe falling apart". Since I'd encountered problems with deteriorating grout in another bathroom previously which ended up being a nightmare since water was getting through to the tileboard and making it fall apart, I was over to her apartment in quick order.
She wasn't home when I stopped by to investigate. All that was wrong was that she hadn't been cleaning it (she'd been living there for at least a couple of years)!! The mildew was BLACK around the tile. All I needed to do was spray a little Lysol tile cleaner and use a scrub brush with a little elbow grease and water washed it all away. I cleaned about 25% of it for her and told her to buy some cleaner and a scrub brush. She was absolutely mortified with embarrassment.
