I'm quite sure the cleaner maid is not going to go out of her way to tote my gym bag for me.
I call them janitors. Is that wrong now?
Another definition of porter is: a person who does cleaning and maintenance work in a building,factory, store, etc.
I've never seen that definition, and it didn't Google as such.
Although, in fairness, going by definition #2, she is brown...
I'm not saying it is the definitive source for definitions but Dictionary.com had it as such.
But is she bitter?
Actually, she is pretty sweet.
Can she handle a large load?
We used to have a situation like that: I knew the locker room was being cleaned, and I knew there was a girl working. All I needed to do was go inside to grab something out of a locker room. She saw me when I walked in and thought things might get awkward until she realized what was going on.
Now we have a guy that weighs about 350 lb, has a long scraggly white beard, and always says, "How are you, brother?" I have no idea how the ladies locker room is handled.
Well, aren't they all pretty much unisex these days?
Just be glad it still says "MENS"
<------this guy doesn't usually hang around men's locker rooms. but when he does, it's between 2:00 and 3:00am.
So 1980s. Now they're porcelain sanitation technicians.
I value those individuals, no joke.
As you should. Life would suck without them.
Around here it probably should have said "Mangs."
I like porters (of the liquid variety) because they are NOT bitter.
The OED hasn't heard of that definition.
In some foreign public places, Frankfort airport for example, it would not be unusual in the middle of the day to have a woman come into the men's restroom and start cleaning the urinal next to the one that you are using.
Maybe not, but here are two others. Merriam-Webster Cambridge Dictionary
I agree that it is not a very common usage but it seems to be common enough as to not be considered incorrect.
Google: porter cleaner
I do think though that words matter and here are a couple of Porters who might agree.
Oh jeez, a horrid thought just came over me.
After January 20th, she may become a de-porter...
