      Dr. Mike you missed a step in hand wash, after drying your hands with a paper towel then use it to shut off the water. You don't want to touch the dirty knobs with clean hands. Then use it to open the door so you don't touch it, never know who doesn't wash their hands.

                      I remember colored toilet paper, it was still around until the late 70s/early 80s. One of my first jobs included cleaning restrooms, the mens rooms were much cleaner than the ladies rooms (which were disgusting) because men sit but women hover.

                                          We need a law where you have to clean the toilet stall or urinal after you go to the bathroom in public spaces so the seat and toilet doesn't have poo or pee on the ground and toilet.

Man, I was hanging out with a girl a barely knew and she was naked in my bedroom before taking a shower. My door wasn't even closed and my dad was at home. I think I don't know what is normal anymore.

                                                              I sometimes see people in bathrooms wash and dry their hands in 10 seconds and I always think 'how?' takes me at least half a minute.

                                                                            I am a female. There are a couple of reasons that I use more toilet paper.

                                                                            One: my menstrual cycle. Sometimes it behaves but there times where it absolutely evil and goes everywhere. Before someone suggests Tampons, I hate them since they are completely uncomfortable, never seem to work right (either to strong or weak no matter what my flow strength is and the absorption level of the tampon), have negative side effects on my body from the toxins used to make Tampons, and either gets stuck or loose.

                                                                            I am lactose intolerant and have non-Celiac gluten sensitivity (have symptoms similar to a person with celiac disease but tests show no results that I am celiac and going gluten free helped me resolved all those symptoms). If I eat something with milk and/or wheat/gluten and not aware of it at the time, however, the results are not pretty in the bathroom.

                                                                            I'm also currently pregnant. The baby kicks, headbutts, and pressing against my bladder depending on the size and location of the baby. This causes me to use the restroom more often and sometimes without warning.

                                                                            So it takes a while to get cleaned up and quite a bit of toilet paper. Before the suggestion of wipes is made, I have super sensitive skin and not a lot of wipes are not flushable as well as not safe for plumbing including supposedly the flushable ones.

                                                                            • lemon lemon lemon lemon lemon lemon lemon
