Washroom performance

We’ve all experienced the adventure commonly called “the public washroom,” right? The washroom in most offices can be lumped under the same heading for the purpose of this discussion.

Some people don’t wash their hands after they’ve finished their business. Yes, I think it’s a disgusting habit, but I have to hand it to them for being upfront about it. Whether they really believe it’s okay, or simply don’t know better, they don’t hide it. You know where they stand on the issue.

Other people don’t wash their hands, and they clearly know better because they don’t want you to know they don’t wash their hands. So what do they do? After they’re done their business, they turn on the tap for a quarter of a second, rub their barely wet hands together, and proceed to dry them before leaving.

Do they really think they’re fooling anyone? Anyone with half a sense of hygiene can see right through the performance. The only purpose served by their display is to waste time, water, and paper towels.

Grow up and wash your damned hands, freakshow!

    I’ve often wondered about these freaks myself. If you’re going through the trouble of wetting your hands, why not go ahead and finish what you’ve started?? You’re already there, for cripes sake! Bah! This has got to be one of my top ten pet peeves.

    I’m with Jonathan. I love the Dyson Airblade! You can find them in the public washrooms at Carlingwood Mall. They are so cool! Just stick your hands in the Airblade and it completely blows the water right off your hands!

    Damn, I’ve been trying to remember when I’ve seen those dryers, Lori! I just couldn’t place it and had myself half convinced I was imagining things.

    Yea, those are sweet! I wouldn’t want to pay for one though. I notice the page doesn’t list a price anywhere…
