Restaurant Bathrooms

The subject below on Bathroom etiquette reminded me of this pet peeve.

This is mostly directed at food handlers that work in restaurants but it really applies to all. 

What good is it to wash your hands if you must grab a (no doubt) filthy handle to open the door as you exit?  Some restaurants only give you hot air blowers to dry your hands in the interest of "sanitation" but only to make you grab a filthy door handle without the paper towel option to exit. So, what good is that?

I grab a paper towel and use that to grip the handle and if there is no trashcan close by, I dump it on the floor. I did see a restaurant worker use the paper towel ploy and I was impressed. Oh yes, I did have to use my pinky once and made sure my pinky never came near my food.

I really think that all new restaurants  by code, should have doors that open out by leaning on them. In those instances, hand blow dryers are okay.

i read about a study where they put a sticker of a fly in the urinals and the aim improved by, well, a lot. apparently giving a guy something to point it at helps. good to know. good to know.

LOL..He loves my mom, would have to be his BOSS . He would NEVER miss his aim then.

My favorite bathroom ...

My favorite bathroom graffiti :

1 - (At a gas station) "We aim to please. You aim too... please?"

2 - Written ultra tiny in that tiny little line of grout between the tiles on the wall above the urinal - "If you can read this you are probably pissing on your shoes."

3 - At a very shabby roach infested greasy spoon diner "Flush twice, it's a long way to the kitchen."

lol..good ones..

shaybabe...thats pretty funny....guys dont usually like their mom-in-laws. use his boss then.

TGIX...thats just nasty. lol.

You girls demand that the ...

You girls demand that the toilet seat be in position for you because you don't look before you sit but that guarantees the soiling of the seat either by bad aim or the occasional partial blocking of the male urethra which tends to spray the urine in multiple directions. Mostly on my light colored pants. So you think you've got troubles?

LOL...you poor ...

LOL...you poor thing..calted2..a different point of view..but a good point at that

lol...sorry calted. i ...

lol...sorry calted. i didnt know that it may spray somewhere else. lol. i dont complain about the seat being up. they lift it up just as much, if not more, than we put it down.

Most men do...especially about "sizes"..lol
Sorry, couldn't resist....

I've worked a lot of black ...

I've worked a lot of black tie affairs at places like the Four Seasons in Georgetown, parties the hosts spent a quarter million dollars on. In the restroom there is a guy (no idea what they call him so I'll call him "the bathroom guy" LOL) who stands there handing out the towels. If only they could have that in All restrooms. People are NOT going to skip hand washing when there's a guy right there watching. I've been to hundreds of other black tie affairs where there was no bathroom guy and I've seen politicians and people who hold high state offices, judges, and other prominent people just walk right from the stall to the exit without so much as glancing at themselves in the mirror (which always seemed very odd to me with the politicians, LOL).

Maybe they could have a stamp machine that puts some ink on your hand in order to get in and it will only come off with a thorough washing. I think I remember seeing on TV years ago about some sort of system, a digital tracking device or some device/system for restaurant workers and it only improved washing hands slightly. Every year or so we read about a restaurant worker who gave hepatitus C or e-Coli to lots of people who ate there because they didn't wash before going back into the kitchen. All I know is that if they did that to me or my family they'd lose a whole lot more than just their job.

saw Oprah yesterday and ...

saw Oprah yesterday and she had a Dr. on talking about germs and such and he said that we can't catch any STD's from toilet seats and that the germs that are around restrooms are pretty much harmless because they usually tend to dry out and lose their potency. So while it may be gross to sit on a "wet" seat, it won't kill you. Look before you "leak!" is what I say!

As an aside, if you look ...

As an aside, if you look at the contents of some of your shampoos, you might find urea. Pee makes your hair soft and silky.

it's used in some ...

it's used in some medicines too. yummy!

i heard, when i was in ...

i heard, when i was in grade school, that theres urea in toothpaste. truth to that??

OK, I'm never going to ...

OK, I'm never going to wash my hair again (always wanted dreadlocks anyway) and won't ever brush my teeth. Next are you going to tell me it's in my food so I can't eat either? At least I won't get cavities so not brushing won't matter. LOL!

Plus, it's a great diet!

Plus, it's a great diet!

lol.....i dont know how ...

lol.....i dont know how true that is. i was in 6th grade, something like that, and in computer class. some kid mentioned that there was pee in toothpaste. thats damn near the only thing i remember from grade school. haha.

I always felt a little bad ...

I always felt a little bad about dropping the papertowel or TP I used to open the door. It's good to see that others do it too.

Reminds me of a time we stopped at a huge truckstop outside Memphis. The truck stop had a McD's, Subway and a couple other eating places inside. We chose Subway. I went to the mens room and my wife went to the ladies room. I finished first and waited for her. A huge fat slob of a woman came out of the ladies just before my wife. SHe was wearing a Subway uniform. When my wife came out she said "we're not eating here." I asked why. Apparently the fat lady just took a dump and left the restroom without washing her hands. I mean didn't even turn the water on. I was never more disgusted in all my life. eeeewwwwww

I've done the same, said ...

I've done the same, said "we're not eating here". It is a good idea, when in an unknown restaurant, to check out the rest rooms first.

God Lord, this why we have ...

God Lord, this why we have an immune system. A few germs on a bathroom door knob/handle will NOT kill you or make you sick unless you have weakened immune system.

The thought of eating ...

The thought of eating somebody else€™s fecal matter does not sit well with me rkinne01. If it doesn't bother you, chow down. Just be sure to rinse and garglewith gasoline when you're done.
