I work with gals who dont wash their hands after going potty, what would you do?

No bashing, just an honest question. I work with these people everyday and sometimes we meet up in the bathroom. They leave the potty and march straight out the door. How would you handle this?

  • I get over it and move on with my life.

    I can't control other people, but i can use my own hand sanitizer and wash my own hands.

  • Yeah, I worked fast food when I was younger. I seen that happen all the time. Really disgusting though for fast food if you think about it.

  • i couldnt get over it that easily..especially where i work (around food)..i sure as heck would say something..that would eat me up if i didnt. I would probably be eye fuc*ing her all day wondering if she had washed her hands or not.

  • something to add....
    I hope and pray you don't work in the food industry! Though I am sure this goes on but I never try and think about it or I would never eat out.

    Second, I also can't stand when they do the fake "water wash" with no soap. Not sure which is worse~!

  • Offer them a scented antibacterial hand lotion to try. Bath and body works makes them in all the scents they carry. I used to put one in the ladies' room. Everyone came out smelling like the lotion, so it worked.

  • Unless you work with food I wouldn't really care. I'll admit it though cuz no one else is gonna I guess, but I don't always wash my hands after I go to the bathroom. If I'm on my period then I do or if I get pee on my hand but I don't ever touch myself down there so I don't always wash.
