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!


Soap is Your Friend!

Last night, I was talking to a friend on mine about a job interview they just had (hopefully they get the job.) They brought up an interesting point asking me whether I wonder how often the people who conduct interviews wash their hands.

This brought up another thing which “Grinds my Gears.” I can’t stand people who don’t wash their hands after they go to the bathroom. It’s disgusting, disturbing and unhealthy.

It’s not difficult to spend an extra few seconds in the bathroom to wash your hands. And it’s actually beneficial to you to wash your damn hands! It helps prevent the spread of diseases as well as being good for just general hygiene.

It’s really selfish and irresponsible for people who have a lot of contact with others throughout the day to wash their hands. Washing your hands in this case will help prevent the spread the communicable diseases.

Wash your damn hands people. It’s not as bad as going to the dentist, I promise!

I am definitely going to start carrying around Purell again.

Here’s a little guide for those people who don’t know how to wash their hands.
