Don't Go There: The Wash Room


This is the second part in the "Don't Go There" series. The series strives to unveil the most secret and secluded parts of campus to give ordinary students a glance at the unknown.

We scan our card, select a table and pick up a pristine plate from the rainbow stacks awaiting us beneath buffets of rich health and beauty.

When we finish our meals we discard our dishes, leaving them to the fate of the conveyor belt which swallows them whole.

And our silverware? It's tossed through a slot in the wall to a enjoy a date with oblivion.

...Or so it seems.

Our used instruments are gathered in the wash room, separated by sight – but as close as your hand is to your face.

Dishes are sprayed and washed. Crusty silverware piles in a soapy tray. People do actually work in the wash room.

After all, how else do our pristine plates return to neat little stacks for the following meal?
