A Zara customer says she found a bag of pee in her dressing room
A woman has gone viral on TikTok after claiming someone slipped a pee bag into her dressing room at Zara.
The video features user Andrea Giordano (@andreagio102) as she films herself in her dressing room at Zara. According to Giordano, this took place at the Zara location on Fifth Avenue in New York. Looking visibly disgusted, she begins by saying how she was in her dressing room when someone randomly slipped a bag of urine into her dressing room.
She then flips the camera to show a bag of what looks like urine, claiming it “smells like piss”. Then the camera pans to Giordano talking to one of the workers as she tells him she “don’t know what it is” and it “went under her door”. The video ends with one of the workers removing the bag of urine.
Giordano expressed his disbelief in the caption, writing, “I can’t believe this just happened to me.”

The video racked up more than 488,000 views on Monday, and many claiming to be Zara employees said it was nothing new or surprising.
“I used to work at Zara and honestly, people peeing in fitting rooms probably happen in every retail store,” one user said.
“I once worked at Zara and someone literally shit in the locker room,” wrote a second.
“I work there and it’s not the weirdest thing to happen,” said a third.
Some Zara customers shared their in-store experiences.
“I was at Zara trying on clothes and this older lady just opened the curtain to look inside my room and left. She did it twice,” one said.
“People don’t know how to behave in zara, every time I go there are clothes thrown everywhere. I feel so bad for the workers,” said a second.
“I swear every time I’m in a Zara dressing room five people put their hands in it or try to open it,” said a third.
Other former retail workers shared their horror stories of what they encountered in the workplace.
“Yeah I worked at Adidas and instead of being in a bag it was all over the padded floor,” one person shared.
“I worked in retail when I was a teenager and someone pooped on the floor and I had to clean it up and I’ll never forget that day,” a second commented.
“When I was working at Gstar on the 5th, someone took the greenest dump I’ve ever seen in the fitting room,” said a third.
“When I worked in a retail store, people would leave used tampons in the fitting room on the floor. That’s beyond me,” a fourth noted.
