I’m hoping, almost *praying*, that for the sake of the human race, that this is just a problem that’s confined to the offices I’ve worked at, but what is up with bad restroom etiquette? I’ve mentioned it before elsewhere, but the fact that I’m confronted by it on almost a daily basis whenever I’m the one at my offices absolutely astounds me.
Here’s two of my biggest pet peeves:
- People who don’t flush.
- People who don’t wash their hands.
At one of my past jobs, which was at an office in Westwood, we shared restrooms with a real estate broker. And those guys from that company were the worst offenders, as I don’t think I ever saw any of them washing their hands afterwards. So imagine them out there making deals, and yes, shaking people’s hands, on a regular basis. Yuck!
You know it’s gotten so bad that we have automatic toilet flushers and faucets to make things easier, and yet, there are still people who don’t wash their hands! How lazy, not to mention inconsiderate, is that?!
So am I being too much of a hypochondriac in using a paper towel to open restroom doors when I leave, or is this acceptable behavior given what I’ve mentioned already?
