Oh, HOW can you do that? My husband always wonders what takes me so long ... I say, I have to wipe off the seat, be sure every inch is covered with paper, etc. I'm obsessive about it, but I cannot hover!!

It also said you're more likely to get sick touching a co-workers keyboard than sitting on a public toilet.

I clean my phones ... no one else uses my computer ... I have no coworkers ... okay, both my mom and dad are OCD! Six kids has cured me of much of it though!! I always clean the cart at the grocery, I love those wipes they provide, although I find it funny that some get their cart, then push it over to the wipes, it's too late then!! I'm actually more afraid of gluten than bacteria!!!! :lol:

Did anyone see the science fair project done by an 8th grader who got ice from public restaurants and water from their toilets ... she tested both and found in most restaurants the toilet water was cleaner???? :blink: Some restaurants changed their ice procedures, then invited her back!!

wow, if those legs weren't so tan and skinny, I would've had to say that was me at the dorms in college!

I get mad at people who hover....They get pee everywhere! All over the seat, the floor....everywhere! Way grosser than just other people's butt meat on the seat...I mean really...the dirty part is in the open hole! :rolleyes:


Alright, don't worry even if things end up a bit too heavy

We'll all float on, alright

Well we'll float on good news is on the way...

Ditto, you couldn't pay me to sit on a public seat and hubby will ask, if we are out, if a certain place is OK to pee - Wedny's are OUT, forever. Don't even mention Wal-Mart or K-mart unless I am totally completly dieing!!!

I too have passed this on to my kids - they have a hard time even pottying at school. Strangely enough, my step-daughter, who has to wash her hands every 5 minutes and keeps anti-germ stuff in the car, in her purse, and in her locker has no problem sitting on a public toilet but won't use a blue room to save her soul. We have chatted and I think she is better but not positive--she won't even pee in the woods (her mom won't let her when we are camping/hiking). EEEWWWW.

What legs, the ones on your pencat?

I hate that, too!!! So gross. I mean, I avoid public restrooms, but when you need one, you need one!!

A blue room (or green depending on where you are) is the portable toilet you see at festivals, along the side of the road at construction sites, etc... At Smokey Mountain National Park (green rooms) they had them at trail heads.

Oh, yea, yuck!!

This guy we knew, a country boy out in Owen County (I can tease people for that because we lived there), went in one and had his arm leaning on the arm rest for quite some time before he figured out it was a urinal!! :o
