Bizarre, Seemingly Unsanitary Bathroom at 7-Eleven on 19th Street in NW

Let me preface this story, as well as these photos, by saying that I kind of feel bad posting this, simply because the people at the 7-Eleven were so nice to me when I went in yesterday.  I'm not a bad person, and I do appreciate the fact that they let me use their facilities even though I wasn't a customer, but what I saw needs to be seen.

It was around lunch time, and I was headed to Dupont Circle and needed to use a bathroom. So, upon seeing the recently opened 7-Eleven on 19th Street, I ducked into the convenience store and asked an employee if I could use the restroom even though I had no intention of purchasing an item.

He said, very kindly I might add, that I could and pointed me to the back of the store.  I opened the door to the bathroom and was taken aback.

The room was packed with trash and recycling bins, as well as containers that the store used to carry its products.  Had I entered the trash room by accident?  Nope.
