Earl Gray, an English Teacher at Meicun Experimental Middle School, says that the water doesn’t drain properly whenever he takes a shower in the apartment provided for him by the school.
"Whenever, I take a shower, the water pools on either side of the drain. The only water that does go into the drain is the water that lands in front of the drain and can flow directly into it. It seems that the workers who put the shower into the apartment must have been in a hurry to get the job done and didn’t bother to test to see if all the surfaces around the shower were sloped as to cause water to flow into the drain. So after every shower, I have to use a squeegee to get all the water to go down the drain." said Gray in an exclusive interview with the WCE Blog.
Asked if his school was able to help him with his shower drainage problem, Gray said he hadn’t been able to get the staff at the school to help him. "I have contacted the Wuxi China Expatdom Charge D’Affaires official in charge of liaising with the Wuxi local government on matters of shower drainage, his name being Lloyd Axworthy, and he tells me there is a good chance that my case may be dealt with in the six months!" said Gray.
