yeah, find a Capt who isnt so shitty! But seriously, I would just send it down the hatch. If he has the time to go looking in trash cans for used shit paper, then He needs a new life!
In all likely hood this is simply a ‘power trip’ He is on. Figure out to deflate his stupid idea, without getting fired!
Maybe you should ask the office if it is standard procedure to NOT put used shit paper in the heads. If it is not the standard procedure, then I wouldn’t put up with it!
I think I would have to say, “Capt. The instructions on the microphor state it CAN take toilet paper and if there is something broken, maybe you should call for repairs.” Or does he want you to call the office to ask for repairs. Ya, I know, there’s nothing wrong with it either, But He needs to know that you know. Tough words, yeah, But I would stop coddling this kind
of mindless idiotic behavior.
On another related but of humor, A Captain where I work would go down at 0830 after the deckhand had just done daily sanitary) and take a dump in the head. He would NEVER flush it. Then he would call up the deckhand and tell him: “Clean the head it looks like shit!” Finally a new deckhand came on. He tried it on the new guy. The new guy told him to go flush his own shit, who the hell did he think he is! The Captain NEVER did that again, until a new deckhand came aboard!
