wash your hands!

the other day i was using the restroom and the person that was in one of the other stalls finished her business then just left the restroom without washing her hands. even if she has hand sanitizer at her desk, i'm curious what could be the reason for this behavior?

the sad thing is, from seeing her shoes (the stalls are very small) when i walked in i know who it was. i just can't look at her the same anymore.

I would be the same way, that is just gross. If she has kids she probably neglected to teach them to wash their hands...

many people don't wash their hands every time they pee... i mean really, if the closest you get to touching yourself is through a giant wad of paper, and you're busy, what's the issue? (not to mention pee is sterile) the world is a nasty place, anyway.

Oh my gosh now that has got to be the grossest thing.
I wash my hands so many times a day they get so sore in the winter. With the cold weather. When I was a kid I wasn't so faithful but as an adult with all the horrible bacteria out there you can't be too safe.
And even if she did have hand sanitizer at her desk what is she going to touch on the way back to her desk. What if her nose itches. That is one way we spread the bacterias. I agree with you OP I too would have a hard time.

you get more bacteria on your hands touching the faucet and the door knob in the bathroom than you do if you only touch toilet paper. I personally use hand sanitizer at the desk - unles it is TOM or a significant reason otherwise (sorry...gross).

it isn't so much the pee that is the problem (obviously if you go #2 you must be washing your hands, i mean, i'm just going to assume that), the door handle into the stall, really everything in there is just gross. wash your hands, use paper towel to turn the facet off, and of course to open the door. my 7 year old daughter has all of this down with no issue (including flushing the toilet with her foot so she isn't touching the gross handle). at home it isn't AS bad, but in public COME ON
