So, like all people, I don’t love public bathrooms. However, they are a necessary grossness–anyone with a toddler can agree (not that I could ever get Oliver to sit on one).
My top complaints about public bathrooms:
1. People who don’t flush the toilet. I mean, seriously. Do you think that the person who uses it after you really wants to see what you just did? Learn to balance on one foot and flush with your shoe.
2. Toilet paper dispensers that like to try to limit the amount of toilet paper you can use. What’s up with that? Why do they think that making it really really difficult to get toilet paper is going to make me use less? Why, when you’re handing out cheap, one ply toilet paper, are you going to try to make it one square? We can’t all be Sheryl Crow, here.
3. People who leave toilet paper spread out all over the seat. Um, gross. If YOU don’t want to touch what you were just sitting on, I certainly don’t.
4. When people don’t dispose of their… feminine hygiene products in a way that makes me not have to see them.
5. Speaking of feminine hygiene, it’s a pain when the dispensers are broken. During emergency situations, I have been known to mangle my hand to steal one when it didn’t like my quarter.
6. Pee on the seats.
So, my conclusion: Make the world a happier place. Before you exit the stall, take a quick peek and make sure you’ve left the place in a decent enough condition that the next person won’t feel like they need to soak their hands in bleach to disinfect them when they’re done.
