Anti-pee sign: Make wall not piss

I saw this in the stairwell of my HDB block on the 16th storey.

Thou shall not piss!

Or shit here.

Okay, a few things.

  • Has someone been urinating and/or defecating in this stairwell that I'm unaware of? Because (touch wood) I haven't encountered any urine or defecation in the stairwell so far.
  • Why only the 16th storey? Why is only the top floor of my block targeted? Could it be an inside job? (Whatever that means.)
  • If someone is urinating and/or defecating in the stairwell, will a piece of paper with a drawing of a policeman discourage him or her from doing it again? Some people just can't do it while they're being watched.
  • There's a Chua Chu Kang Town Council logo at the bottom left corner of the poster. Did the town council really put this up? I'm not sure whether to be impressed by the diligence or dismayed by the cheap photocopy.
