Lavatory Etiquette

Tue Nov 27, 2001 1:45 am

Why the heck would a guy not wash his hands after number 1 (and sometimes number 2!)? I have heard that women do this also. But I have witnessed guys simply walking out, even after tapering a timber. Disgusting!

Also, why do some guys always stand (uninvited) right next to you when taking a leak? At least the urinal dividers in the States help. One time in Germany a few years ago, I used a men's room that featured a central, "in the round" urinal where everybody could see everyone else! (I used a stall).

Not many dividers in England...

People aren't strange enough to look at everyone elses...unless they're gay or something..

Witnessing so many men flush the toilet, leave the stall and immediately exit the restroom is the real reason why I REFUSE to touch anything with my bare hands in the restroom (except the toilet paper). It's just disgusting, and I honestly have no idea why so many people have no such home training.

Because of this, once I wash my hands, I take some paper towel and use it to turn the faucet knobs off. And NEVER open the door with your bare hands. Use a paper towel for that too. (In "hands free" restrooms, such as ones with no entry/exit doors and sensor devices for toilet flushes and sinks, the use of paper towels are unnecessary).

P.S. The restrooms at ORD (at least in the United terminals) are the best...totally "hands free" technology.

And folks, remember these things when a stranger wants to shake your hands, or when you wanna use a public pay phone. Keep in mind that many, many people simply DO NOT wash their hands, especially after taking a nasty, filth-ridden crap.

I travel enough that I have to use some of Seven_Fifty7's guidlines.

And yes, I use a paper towel to open the door if it isn't already open.

Like when I was at school, you come home and you think of everything you have touched...

Old tables that have been there for years without being cleaned, door handles, walls - everything that has had dirty hands on it!

Staffan you made my day hehehehehehehehe  Big grin



Couple of weeks ago I went to the party. (as usual hhehe) and qt girl invited me to the bathroom. I went there with her. I was expecting her to kiss me or something. But she simply sat on the toilet and started pee'ing. Its a real turn on (for me at least)  Smile
But then she just waped (hmmmm) with the toilet paper and she approached me. She grabbed my arm and we left. hehehehehe Since then I'm trying to stay away from her eheheh She turned me OFF for long long time hehehe

#1 is understandable. My dick is generally cleaner than my hands anyway (maybe I should wash my dick).

#2 requires a wash everytime (especially if you shit on them).

Dividers in most places here in Malta...
or if not, they're the separate kind of bowl.
I prefer a stall anyway...

Oh, and by the way, don't tell me some of you use hand driers after washing their hands? I know no better and attempt to use them, but my experiences are weird with them.
The most problematic ones for me seem the ones manufactured by Vama (Italy) - they give off sparks, blow cold air rather than hot air often etc etc...
By way the most effective ones I know about are a small, funny looking Perry thing on board the MV Mgarr ferry, it actually dries hands. The Siemens hurricane machines at Malta International airport are also good.
The Noirot machines on MS Ta' Pinu and MS Gaudos blow air too slowly IMHO. The ancient Dan Dryer on MV Calypso (it was built in Denmark) is still going strong and can dry hands reasonably well, too.
And I'm indifferent to Jofel things you find often here...
Just my two cents about hand driers.

Check your dry blowers in public restrooms.
Those in USA are manufactured in Montreal Canada and those in Canada are made in Chicago!!! heheheh
Thats funny!

My Innovative Solution For Airport Security

Tue Nov 27, 2001 5:31 am

Seeing how much of a bone of contemption airport security has become, I propose a new solution.
Instead of the way it currently is, I would introduce a totally new system. An unattended metal detector is placed somewhere in the terminal, preferably close to a checkpoint. And it would be the responsibility of the passengers to make sure that they do not set it off when they pass through. To help passengers, a customer service agent might be close by with a hand scanner to help them see what the problem is. And once the passengers would know they're safe, they'd walk over to the checkpoint, pass through the 'official' detector and be cleared.
I'm sure this solution would be more acceptable than all the patting down, random searches etc we get now because the passenger would actually clear himself and noone would touch him at all. And the proof detector can be set really sensitive, too.
How's about this as a solution?

Nothing quite like dropping the kids off at the pool in a public facility.

As far as "hands-free" lavatory use is concerned, I don't have the length; must handle on my own.
