Public Restrooms

Do public restrooms gross anyone else out? I really hate the idea of touching anything in them. I am turning my daughter into a germaphobe as well.

Also why can't people flush after themselves. Seriously gross.

  • what I found totally baffling was that people would do this when I worked at Sam's Club. I was like "seriously? You pay to shop here. Why would you not wanna keep it nice?"

  • Nasty disgusting germridden narly places. My skin crawls when I have to use one of them. They are definitely not for the weak of heart.

  • Yes, gross! Use them only if I have to. Some are so much better than others, but even so, that is why I have handi wipes with me always.
