Should I be more concerned by bathroom sanitariness? (or is it sanitation?) Several women who work on my floor -- not a majority but not just one or two, either -- follow this procedure (or similar):
- wash hands upon entering bathroom
- use paper towel to open stall (and from here, I can only assume they don't touch anything with their bare hands - handle, seat, etc.)
- flush empty toilet (!)
- use seat cover
- do business
- flush business (ideally with seat cover)
- wash hands w/ soap for what seems like kind of a long time; leaving water running until they've dried their hands
- use paper towel to turn faucet off
- open door w/ paper towel
Am I divulging an unspeakable and (literally) dirty secret by saying that I am in and out of the bathroom (in most cases) in well under a minute? That does not admittedly leave much time for many of the precautions listed above. Am I one big walking germ ball? If I do not pee on my hands (which seriously? is unlikely) or make direct physical contact with my junk, need I wash my hands? Every single everloving time?
Confession: Sometimes I fake washing my hands. Yes. Just so whoever is still in the stall listening, or whoever might be standing outside the door waiting to catch me in my degeneracy, will be fooled. I turn the water on but don't wet my hands. Dude, what's up with that? I think that's mildly fucked up.
