Restroom Ethics

It was lunch time and I was washing myself up in restroom when I saw an office colleague holding some book just walk out without cleaning himself. I asked him as to why he is just walking off without washing his hands. He was taken aback with my yell and replied he was just reading his book. That was silly and lie. But neverthless he washed his hands after that. Maybe because he thought I would tell others.

How many times have you seen fellow coworker or friend or colleague or stranger just walk out of restroom without cleaning himself? I hope you are not one of them. I am not.

As much as it is very "eeeww", we seldom can force this person to clean up his acts. And it is same for strangers and friends. We just feel uncomfortable to ask the person that he needs to wash his hands.

This is one type of person I just despise. Cmon, you are educated, you have and are using best facilities and still dont have time and need to clean your hands? Why? I just fail to understand.

I have not bothered about my friendship, not bothered to act as moral police to tell these sickos to clean up. Either verbally or as a joke in third person.

There are also those, who refuses to flush after use. Lucky for some of us, nowadays automatic ones come to our rescue.

There are Einstein's who just love to read in public restrooms. Private and at home I can understand but that smelly public one?
And if you thought our Einstein's are bad, wait for our worst ones. Yupe, am talking about jerks who love to eat inside the restrooms. If not for some restrictions, I am sure they would be taking whole lunch inside. Really EEEEWWW at those.

nice post and a reminder to those who do not practice cleanliness.I cant understand who would want to eat inside a restroom or read in one.I try not to use a public restroom as much as possible let alone making yourself comfortable enough to read in there.

Mumbai Guy said...

Nishu, Here I was putting Einstien in a context to describe people who think they cannot live without reading in restrooms. Did not mean Einstein literally as himself.

eeks! yuck!! to counter the non-flushing ones, we have a notice put up inside the loo.. i think we need to put up "pls washyour hands" notice too. but then some people may just not notice... yuck again!!

Mumbai Guy said...

B'let : Easy with friends, we need to find some way to deal wid strangers. And we used the same trick as you wid friends.

Serendipity : Your right, Some people just do not want to read/notice.

Thanks guys for your comments.
