For the Love of God…Toilet Bowl Etiquette

One thing I don’t miss about college is community bathrooms. Those things are terrible! Since you aren’t home, some people believe that because this isn’t your house, so you can do whatever you want in the bathroom. These people are wrong.

Being a guy, I have more experience with the male restroom. A major issue in the male restroom is the toilet bowl area. There is some nasty stuff around there which honestly is easily avoidable.

Due to utter selfishness and disregard for others some men ask like animals and piss all over and around the toilet. The toilet is something where stuff is to go in, not around, and unfortunately some men don’t care.

On some occasions, I can understand that you miss your target. When that happens, clean up after yourself! You’re “potty trained!”

Now, not everyone pisses all over the place, thankfully. Unfortunately, there is another basic rule with toilet bowl etiquette which some simply neglect. This is flushing the damn toilet. There are few things that piss me off, pun intended, more than going to the bathroom and seeing that the toilet wasn’t flushed.

I can understand that you don’t want to touch the handle because you don’t know what other people do around the toilet bowl, since some act like animals and piss all over. However; you can do what many men have figured out, to flush the toilet in public restrooms use your foot instead of your hand to push the handle down.

To sum this up, people need to take better care of public restrooms. This is getting out of hand!

    I grew up with all girls, and then I married my husband and inherited a stepson and a a brother-in-law. Basically, I was living with animals. I went as far as to keep a spray bottle of bleach on the toilet. Also, what’s up with leaving the toilet seat up? What is that?

    People behave appropriately only when there are ramifications for not doing so. If there is someone else in the bathroom, it is a good bet that whomever just finished excreting that laxative-filled dining hall food will flush the toilet. Otherwise, the next user will probably have a stinky surprise.
