To wash or not to wash: is it that difficult to choose?

While watching CNN yesterday night, one of the newscasters reported about toilet hygiene; washing your hands after bathroom use. A few kamikaze spies who sacrificed their lives to bathrimotoilosis for toilet statistics in Atlanta’s Turner field bathroom said only 57% of men washed their hands compared to 95% of women. Men! Ugh! Don’t hold your boyfriend’s hands!

But whatever happened to the 5% of women?? I mean, what is wrong with you, not washing your hands!? How can you not wash your hands after going to the loo?! It’s downright unacceptable!

I always see people wash their hands after bathroom use. So when I entered university and saw a senior who did not wash her hands after using our school’s stinking, wet, icky, yucky toilet, I was so dumbstruck my jaw dropped open. Of course I had to close it back right away. I can’t risk having bathrimotoilosis infect my gums. They’re fatal. Everyone knows bathrimotoilosis kills. Yet some don’t wash after themselves. Why?

You can read the article here. There are too many statistics my head hurts. If she had reported all the figures last night, I would have switched channel and hence no blog today.

Washing is optional as long as you don't pee on your hands, right? :-D

I googled Bathrimotoilosis and your blog popped out. Hehehehe... :P

runawaycat said...

Yay! I fooled you into believing bathrimotoilosis exists! And the only result google could get is spaceparade. Bathrimotoilosis belongs to me. Yay again!

Speaking of toilets & hygiene, I'm staying in a hse shared by 2 other girls and 2 boys. The boys macam tak tau 'aim' properly & tak mau lift the toilet seat. Can see dried up or wet yellow drops/stains on the toilet seat or floor. So disgusting :S Then when I wanna go, I have to 'hover' bcos there are ALWAYS a few yellow drops on the seat. I have to HOVER in my own toilet. Imagine that. Humph.

Oh ya another thing...one boy doesn't lock the toilet door when he's in it. Just now I pushed open the toilet door thinking there was no one (bcos of the Vacant symbol on the lock). I heard the sound of someone peeing, saw his backside & immediately turned around & fled -_-" My only hope is that he didn't see me...

lyn - Or you could wipe the seat before using it, no? Guys don't usually lock though :P

Lyn said...

CY - Errrrr disgusting leh...didn't know guys usually don't lock bcos the guys in my family will lock XD

Cometh said...

Hmmm..come to think of it... I don't lock also.... =p



You are TAGGED

=p

Lyn - You could lift up the seat and sit on the ceramic thing. But you'll have to be careful not to fall into it. Better then hovering I guess. Legcramps :P

Hah! Saw his whole butt? Hahahahah!!!

CY - Guys don't lock? That's something new I learned. But this guy is living in a house with girls he isn't close with. That normal too?

Cometh - You don't lock too?? Oh noes! What's wrong with all the guys?

Oh noes again! I have two memes to do now! Heck what's the plural of meme?

Lyn said...

runawaycat - Ah well...I could have done that but the ceramic thingy is also spotted with you know what :D Yes I saw his whole butt, which means he wasn't wearing pants with zipper. Maybe trackpants? But if they wear tracks I don't think there's need to pull them down all the way??? I really dunno, I don't have one of those things XD

runawaycat said...

Hahahaha! Funny la :P Why do I have a feeling he didn't wear underwear. Don't understand them and the locks man.

We have this common washroom in school in one of the departments. And well, I needed to go to the WC; so I walked in and saw a guy already inside using the urinal. I was like, "Ooopsss...sorry..." It was so embarrassing. I really hoped he didn't see my face, or it would be really awkward.

runawaycat said...

Hmm...It's a common WC so you don't have to be embarrassed :) I'm sure when they constructed the WC they had thought about that happening :P

kopi said...

Lyn -- you know, i think ppl who don't know how to aim must at least learn how to clean up their own mess.

CY said...

lyn - You're right. Even with tracks, there's no need to pull it down so much. It's just your lucky day! Lol lol.

Ps. runawaypussy - How many hits for 'bathrimotoilosis'? :P

runawaycat said...

Hey don't call me that. I didn't call myself that.

None. Now that you asked, I was expecting at least one haha. But surely when they google bathrimotoilosis and see spaceparade, they wouldn't click would they?
