Public Restroom Etiquette
Rule #1. Under no circumstances do you ever touch (with your hand) the flush handle in a bathroom stall. The foot is the proper tool for the job.
Rule #2. ALWAYS LOCK and check said locked stall door.
Rule #3. Never sit on the seat. Use the supplied safety seat, or gobs of the important papers to create a safe barrier between you and the rest of everyones butt.
Rule #4. While at the urinal, eyes a front sir, an acceptable alternative, look down and admire your work. Secondly, if possible leave a one urinal buffer between you and the next lad. Never stand directly behind someone while waiting for your turn. This can sometimes induce shy bladder for your neighbor, hence making your wait longer.
Rule #5. Don’t talk to the person next to you ever. Speech is only acceptable at the sink during hand washing and only in brief (how’s the weather) increments. This isn’t a social hang out.
Rule #6. While in the stall, never drop, handle paperwork, or leave the stall until the coast is clear. No one wants to hear it, and absolutely NO ONE wants to know who it is.
Rule #7. Always check for feet before trying a stall door. Never EVER look through the crack to see if said stall is in use.
Rule #8. When finished, ALWAYS get rid of the evidence..Completely. No one wants to see the remains of your handy work.
Rule #9. Don’t bring your little girl into the Mens room. Take her home. Furthermore, don’t wipe your kids butt with the stall door open. These should go without saying.
Rule #10. Never buy the comb from the attendant. Do you really think that blue water does anything for that comb?
Follow these simple instructions and the bathroom trip will be a
painless bearable experience.
I would love to hear any additions.
