Would you use a public bathroom that had unflushed debris in the bowl?
Gross, I know. But what if it's the only one and there's a python coiled up in it?
Rutley, I am the type of person who wipes down shopping cart handles, re-wipes tables in restaurants (if they don't appear clean) with a disinfectant towelette (in my purse at all times), NEVER touches a public doorknob (without a paper towel), flushes public toilets with my foot...
NO! I would not use a public bathroom with anything in the toilet. And, let me tell you, I have seen some awful things, not only in the toilet, but on the rim, all over the floor...I could go on and on. Also, many of these public facilities have no windows, air conditioning or ventilation. I sometimes feel as if these places are just crawling with germs.
Sometimes I am very disillusioned with how inconsiderate the public can be. Not to mention the numerous people who use the toilet and don't wash their hands!
I try to avoid public restrooms at all costs. Sometimes that is not possible. For example if I spend seven hours at Barnes & Noble, I cannot avoid it.
And I NEVER, EVER, under ANY circumstances use a port a john. I cringe at the sight of them.
However, I must give kudos to the ladies room in Bryant Park, New York City...it is extremely immaculate...a woman is there all the time constantly cleaning the sinks, toilets...even plastic covers on the seats.
Also the bathrooms in Branson, Missouri where they have terrific shows. They are clean, beautiful and stunning.
AND, Extreme kudos to the cleaning ladies who work for hours and hours in the bathrooms at the New York State Fair. They keep the sinks and toilets consistently clean, and they provide hand cream and hard candies.
These people truly deserve good tips. It's a hard job, and I applaud them for it.
I suppose if it was the only one, I would flush. I tend to adopt the crouch position and not make contact with the seat in public toilets. Now if the python had made contact with the seat while slithering down into the bowl, I would pass (on using the WC that is).......
Not likely. Things were pretty gross esp. in No. Cal during the drought in the late 70s when the levels were at the brim, but solid waste, no, not in water- unless I could flush first! If the flies are already there, I say "excuse me!" and leave.
no way...and here in India situation is as worst as you described above, even at some very important public places & we have to live with these mess, fighting against all inhygienic conditions and that has made us enough stronger of course!
If it were the only commode available, I would try to flush it and then use it. I have flushed commodes like this and they were not working. It's pretty gross, though!!!! UGH!!!!

Do you trust your children to go in a public bathroom alone?What age is appropriate for children to go in a bathroom without parents in public? Do you worry the entire time they are in there? Do you talk to your kids about being safe in bathrooms with all the child predators that are out here?
