Public Toilets

I do not know about ladies' public toilets, but the floors in mens' public toilets are always disgusting. They smell, they are wet, there is likely to be all manner of dirt on them. Not just the obvious, but cleaning chemicals and mud. You definitely would not want to touch the floor of a public toilet with your hand.

Now imagine somebody goes to a public toilet. He then visits your house or apartment and comes in with his shoes on, walking on the same floor on which your children play. See what I am getting at?

The floors tend to be pretty gross in most ladies' restrooms, too, but absolutely nothing beats the disgusting floors of an airplane at the end of a long flight (except maybe for a train toilet - those are pretty bad, too).

I don't even want to think about putting my hand on such a floor. How vile!

I should think aeroplane toilets are pretty awful. I did not use them when I went to Finland, last year.

Trust me, ladies' public toilets can be quite disgusting.

That is something I like about my office. Since it's a lawfirm and clients go in and out, it's always very nice and tidy. Makes me very happy!

Anybody else disturbed by the toilets that flush with such force that they spray all over the place? I've found that far too often in public restrooms. Imagine what's on the floor then!

Sarah, it is good that your office is clean. But what if clients have been to public toilets before visiting your office?

Angie, that is not good.

yuck, I hadn't thought about that, Matthew.

It is good that we take our yucky shoes off at the door then!

Dyspraxic Fundamentalist said...

Quite so.

Ah, if only all of our readers reached that conclusion!

Too right, Angie.

At church tonight there was a kid throwing a piece of cereal in the air, trying to catch it in his mouth. He kept missing and it fell on the floor. He then proceeded to pick it up and repeat the cycle over and over again. I couldn't help but think of how dirty the floor was and what might end up in his mouth when he eventually did catch it.

Redeemed said...

oh now, that is yuck indeed. lol, but kind of funny!

I must confess, I do eat food that has fallen on the kitchen floor. All my family do too.

Nobody can accuse me of being scared of germs.

God Bless

Ten second rule! It's nice to know that you aren't germophobic.

Redeemed said...

That does rule you out of being a germophobic!!

We always tell the children at church not to do this sort of us.

I am a not a germophobic, but still, I cannot bring myself to eat something that has fallen on the floor and I cannot give you a logical answer as to why I refuse. I just can't bring myself to do it.
