Do you ever wonder which stall is going to be the cleanest in a public bathroom?
It’s the 1st one, the one nearest the door. (20/20 segment) Most people seek privacy when they go to the bathroom, so they will head to the farthest one away from the door. The more use the stall gets, the dirtier it gets.
The “Handicapped/ Special Needs” stall is usually the furthest from the door too. And guess what? Many people won’t use it. Why not? Are they afraid that a handicapped person can’t wait? Because of all those considerate people, that stall is usually the cleanest – and it has the most room for your luggage if you’re at the airport. Yes, I use that stall if there aren’t any others available – I know, I’m a monster. If you’re going to use the handicapped stall, by all means, if you see a handicapped person headed to the bathroom, don’t use that stall!. That just makes sense.
Purse Alert: Ladies, if you have a purse with you, don’t put it on the bathroom floor! The floor is full of ugly stuff (fecal matter, viruses, microbes) that can make you and your family sick. Your purse could be the dirtiest thing you own if you’re in the habit of putting it on the bathroom floor or any floor for that matter. It’s not recommended that you hang it on the hook on the door either, which makes it easy pickings for thieves. I guess you’ll have to keep it on your lap or sling it over your shoulder or balance it on your head, life just got a little harder, I know. Men with “murses,” well, I can’t even think about having one, so you’re on your own.
Bathroom Etiquette: For crying out loud, flush as you go! Once you’ve dropped the bulk of the kids off at the pool, flush the toilet. You don’t have to get up and leave, go ahead and finish the rest of the drop-off, but get that stinker out of the bathroom ASAP. Your fellow bathroom users will appreciate your consideration in not gagging them. When you do get up to go, turn around and make sure that all of it has flushed. It’s astonishing to me that anyone leaves their poop in the toilet for the next person to admire. Is that what it is? That’s the only way these guys are getting their self-esteem, by what they can produce? Gross. Finally, clean up after yourself! No one wants to see your used toilet paper laying on the floor or stuck to the side of the toilet. What’s wrong with those people?
