I Hate Public Toilets

    Gosh, I hate public bathrooms!

    But, there was this one chinese restaurant that I went to (forgot the name) and they had the most interesting toilets - because after you were done using the toilet - you would remain seated - and you would press a button - then it would spray soap and water on you for about 60...

    Not All Of Them...

    But I especially hate the ones where people decide they wanna **** all over the floor.  I don't understand how people can do stuff like that.  Freaking act like it's your own bathroom at your house.  Nastiness!!

    Absolutly Disgusting!

    I do not use public restrooms unless Im forced to due to lack of another option. When I do, I have to line the toilet seat with toilet paper in order to go. I also do not touch ANYTHING with my bare hands. I'll use toilet paper touch the door and lock it and then I hover over the...

    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...

    Damn Public Toilets...

    I don't know if it's one thing more than the rest which annoys me, or just the nauseating melting-pot of exhibitionism and voyeurism, uncleanliness, carelessness and, in some cases, just sheer stupidity. People not washing their hands I can handle. It's still bloody disgusting...

    I used to be a 'croucher',

    but it's not good for your back. It's uncomfortable too! It also seems ridiculous to do, doesn't it? One day I thought 'what the heck' so since then I sit. Yes, it isn't hygienic, but crouching is uncomfortable and also dodgy to "drop" from such a height. Pee would most likely...

    Ugh

    First I have to wait for a stall. Then I have to hover, even if they have the flushable seat liners because it's STILL gross. Then it seems like I always get the stall that doesn't have toilet paper. Ugh.

    Is It Really That Hard to Aim?

    I am scared of public toilets, and yes, I am a male. I know I don't really have to 'touch' many surfaces when I go to the toilet, but! I do have to walk over some really messed up things. And deal with some stupid things. eg. A few weeks ago, I had to go to the toilet, and alas...

    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 !!!

    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...

    Public Toilets Scare Me.

    To be honest, public toilets actually scare me a little bit. I don't know about women’s toilets, but the men’s always stinks. At least the ones I've been in have. At least if we just need to take a leak, we can be in and out pretty quickly, but god forbid if you actually have...

    Goodness, they are DISGUSTING and girls act so foolishly in them. Not sure if this was a thing elsewhere? but during primary school it went on. They would wet toilet paper and throw it at the ceiling and it would stick and harden. And stay there for years. I also saw it on the...

    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...
