A Chinese female chess player who decided to relieve herself by peeing in an elevator is demanding a security guard be sacked after he posted the images of her online.
Luo Lai, 33, taking part in a tournament at the chess club in Gulin county in south-western China’s Sichuan province, and after finishing had rushed to find a toilet, only to find that the women's bathroom outside the chess club was closed.
She said that on the elevator down to the ground floor, she realised she would not be able to hold it in any longer, and so had relieved herself on the floor of the elevator.
But that excuse failed to impress security guard Yuan Tang, 36, who said: "It must be at least twice a week that somebody uses the elevator as a lavatory, and I wanted to make a stand by publishing her pictures on the internet. It isn't true that the toilet was out of order, she just couldn't be bothered to use it."
The images quickly went viral especially in the area where the woman plays in the local club and she said: "I am too ashamed to show my face outside of the house. It was not my fault that there was no toilet and I don't think I should have been named and shamed. I want the guard sacked."
A spokesman for the management company in the flats where the chess club is based and where the security guard worked said that he would face disciplinary action, but that he was unlikely to be sacked for what was effectively a first offence.
The images posted online meanwhile received overwhelming support for the security guard's actions. Many praised his bravery in risking his job to expose antisocial behaviour by somebody who, as a chess player, would they argued normally have been expected to behave in a more civilised way.
