    What irks me the most is

    when someone leaves their mess on the toilet seat. I'm like how in the world did they miss the toilet water by a long shot? After all that potty training to make sure they can use the toilet properly, they fail.

    Public bathrooms are the worst.

    I always feel like I need a shower after setting foot in one. Be it for me or to change my daughters diaper.

    Don'T Usually Use Public Restrooms

    I don't use public restrooms. Two reasons: one is that they are usually gross and two is that in crowded bathrooms I become very pee shy and can't use the toilet even if I need it badly. There have been one or two occasions where I wet myself in public because I was so desperate...

    When traveling, I have no choice

    but to use public toilets. I get really shaky and nervous when I have to go in one! I would rather drive home from work than to use the toilet there!

    I wait until I get home

    even if it means I am constipated. Can't stand it when people stink up rest rooms, don't even want to wash my hands there. Phew!

    I would rather go all day at work without using

    the bathroom than actually use one of the public toilets. Yuck!

    I try to avoid them as much

    as possible but if I absolutely have to use it, I'll cover the toilet seat with tissue and I'll stand and pee and I'll flush toilet seat with foot

    I can't join this group.

    As a commercial plumber, they are my bread n butter. I thought maybe a janitor might hate them but the same logic applies. What I don't like about them is that they have come out with the water free urinals. That is a considerable amount of work that went away, considering...

    why do men feel compelled to,

    say there's five urinals, take the one RIGHT next to you. Like even my boyfriend and i, being as close as we are, still ******* respect buffer zones. And dont even get me started on urinals without walls between them... oh dear god. Plus, what the hell is up with some...

    Funny

    When you have to visit a public bathroom, you usually find a line of women, so you smile politely and take your place. Once it's your turn, you check for feet under the stall doors. Every stall is occupied. Finally, a door opens and you dash in, nearly knocking down the woman...

    when I'm absolutely about to wet my pants.

    I can't pee if the person in the stall next to

    me is just sat there doing nothing. They're probably as petrified as I am at the thought of being heard as you evacuate your waste. It causes me to be unable to go unless I block out everything in my head and make a sssssss noise in my mind. Public toilet etiquette cracks me up...

    I am sorry man, but there are times when a guy has to do something he does not want to do, but feels like he has to. Telling this story is one of those times. It all begins innocently enough. I was walking down the street one day some years ago and I needed to drain the main...

    I know that women will hover over the seats

    and miss completely. BUT, to all you women who complain about your husband not lowering the seat after he pe.s, just be glad that he lifted it in the first place... Guys cannot aim well.

    I try to avoid them at all costs.

    They can be dirty , smelly , unhygienic places and make me want to vom. There's nothing worse than having to go for a wee and discovering the person that was in the cubicle before you has left a huge smelly poo unflushed. Gross !!!

    I think women's restroom is the most dirtiest

    of all. I used to work in housekeeping and it was my job to clean the public restrooms. Some women don't know how to dispose of a diaper correctly. I see dirty diapers in the bin where the used pads go. GROSS! Every-time I use a public restroom, I take some sanitize and use it...
