Toilet Seats

I know, weird blog title, but some things just need to be said.

This one is for the laaadiees.

Please, please, from the bottom of my heart, if you are one of those women afraid to sit on a public toilet seat because you're paranoid of germs, please, please from the bottom of my heart, DON'T PEE ON THE SEAT and leave it there.

I'm SO flabergasted this. I walk into a public restroom and find a flushed toilet but with pee dribbles on the seat. How? How does this happen? Do you not see the residue when you turn around to flush. Wipe the SEAT down for crying out loud. THEN wash your hands.

How can you not sit on a seat because you're afraid someone of someone else's germs, but have no qualms leaving behind a few of your own?

Look, I'm somewhat of a germaphobe myself, but I wipe down the seat and cover it with TP. I make sure everything is tidy before I leave.

Okay, rant it over. Shew. Thanks so much.

Hey! This SOOO happened to me the other day. I was so ticked off. I narrowly and only by the grace of God escaped sitting my butt on that seat. WHEW.

Please repeat after me with toilet paper-clad hands held high:

"If you sprinkle when you tinkle, be a sweetie and wipe the seat-ey".

My boss once told me that pee is very sterile. That it's not nearly as bad as we think. Huh??? Is he serious? It's pee for goodness sake. Nobody wants anything to do with anybody else's pee! Yuck!

I totally hear you!!!!

Actually, this is very common with Asian women. The toilets in Asian countries are mostly squat toilets. They don't have seats and therefore women from overseas might not understand the Western toilet.

Warning: geeky biologist alert! Pee is actually very sterile until it comes out of you. In touching your outside skin, it immediately becomes unsterile. In being exposed to every germ in the air, it becomes additionally unsterile. Lots of bacteria love to grow in pee.
