After being met with a pretty minor inconvenience at a local hotel, the sanitation bureau chief of a county in north Shaanxi reportedly acted in a not entirely sanitary way to take his revenge.
The hotel told local news outlets that in July, Gao Jianyong, county director of sanitation, had his motorcycle mysteriously knocked over in the hotel’s parking lot. Gao wanted to find out who the culprit was, but the hotel refused to show him the security footage. The hotel then claims that Gao made good use of his office as sanitation director to vengefully trash the place—not once, but twice.
Around 7:30 p.m. on August 4th, hotel security cameras show a group of sanitation workers pushing trash bins and trying to enter the main door. Their assault is blocked by hotel workers and instead they are forced to just topple over the cans in front of the entrance.
This Monday night, they tried again with better results. More than 10 sanitation workers pushed green trash bins through the hotel’s rotating doors (slowing down their lightning assault a bit) and then dumped their contents out on the pristine floor of the hotel’s main lobby.
The hotel’s director said that the trash is very stinky and has had a huge impact on business. “Our employees were really angry,” he added. “They tried to visit the sanitation department to negotiate the matter, but they were beaten up.”
He says that the hotel has reported the incident to the police, but to no effect.
When confronted about the trashing by a reporter Gao Jianyong denied the motorcycle incident ever took place, but did acknowledge that a dozen or so of his employees had entered a hotel and dumped heaps of trash in their lobby. “Speaking about the sanitation workers dumping trash in the hotel’s lobby, that approach is very extreme, I must admit,” he conceded.
Gao has a different explanation for why such a thing would happen though, he told the reporter that his sanitation workers had been angry for a long time at the hotel because they had not been paying their fees despite repeated appeals from the department. Finally, the workers’ anger had boiled over, leading to a messy response that might have been somewhat excessive.
Basically, whatever you do, don’t mess with the sanitation department.
Watch as sanitation workers successfully manage the rotating doors and finally take their sweet, smelly revenge:
