  • I sit. I have a hard time hovering I guess, and the times I've tried have wound up being a big mess. I don't sit on toilets that appear dirty or wet in any way.

  • I carefully inspect the toilet seat to be sure it is not wet/dirty, then I sit. I flush with my foot. If the toilet seat is wet/dirty, I switch stalls or if I can't find a clean one, I hold it til I get somewhere that is clean. Unless I am that desperate, in which case I hover. But I hate doing that b/c it seems like it takes me longer to pee and my thighs start to hurt. lol

  • Oh please,
    If it's wet dry it off. Then sit and do my business and flush with my hand. Go out wash and dry my hands and go about life. I refuse to be germaphobic.

  • I hover and flush with the foot. Eww. I don't even like touching the locks on the stalls so I use toilet tissue.

  • It's because of people that hover and flush with their feet that there are so many germs in the bathroom...GROSS. Can't you act like normal people?
    I sit, flush with my hands and then wash afterwards. I've never gotten sick from using a public restroom.
    For the love of bob consider the children that have to use the toilets and have to hold on to the seats to get up and down. Or at the least...CLEAN UP YOUR FREAKING MESS! I'm so tired of going to use a public restroom and women have peed all over the seat and just left it...ick. What the hell is wrong with people?
