Wiped Seats

"If you sprinkle when you tinkle, please be neat and wipe the seat"

Can you imagine? I am sure many of you have seen this ditty in the home toilettes of friends or that you have the same sign hanging in your bathroom in vicinity of the toilet.

Now, does this posting make me feel assured your toilet seat is cleanly and safe? It does not.

What am I to think when I see this? I tell you what, it makes me squat above your toilet, hoping like hell the backs of my thighs will NOT TOUCH your assumingly wiped toilet seat that was probably sprinkled on more than you know or apparently care.

Since the placquard is usually done up with a white lace border, or with a sweet cartoon child emblazoned next to the instructions, many find it a wonderful little craft to adorn the throne area.

Apparently, its directed at men and women. Men who do not lift the seat to pee-yes, they are out there and women, who do God Knows What when they enter the facilities. And all these bathroom indiscretions, are merely wiped away, as instructed to do, without any care about what lingers on that seat after the wipe.

Are there homeowner's out there that are so lazy they have their guests responsible for what they feel is toilet cleanliness? Apparently the answer is a resounding YES.

I find this entire bathroom mindset particularly gross but also it has a much heeded warning: don't sit on the seat, it has only been merely wiped when peed on, nothing more, nothing less. EEWW.

Where the HELL is the LYSOL?

No one can use my upstairs bathroom but me. I don't want them to see where I kicked my panties off before my shower. Why do they always land crotch up?

I see we think alike.
I flush with my foot or a well protected hand, open the doors with tissue- stall and exit- and practically freak out if I touch something-

I see people in public restrooms touch everything in site, wash their hands after touching the spitgot and then go ahead and touch the door to exit-befuddling to me-all I can think is their hand are STILL dirty..filthy..uncleanly!

Crotch up is fine, as long as there is not a show in that crotch!

I have the perfect solution to this problem. I take my own toilet seat with me where ever I go. Sure, I get strange looks on the bus...but my ass is the cleanest in town.

Dyck- I hoped you have one that is made of deep foam and covered in could use it as you bus seat as well for those extra bumpy rides. Not only will yoour ass be clean, it's also well cushioned.
