The Reggies!

This post will be about public restrooms, bathrooms and all other details that go in that vicinity. If you are senstive to this subject, please stop reading here! I am venting today!

I don't know why, but lately the public restroom has been on my mind a lot lately. I am comfortable about talking about using the bathroom because we talk it quite a bit in my home.
My husband has ulcerative colitis and that has taken all the shyness out of the subject for us.
My day starts in the joys of my own home, however by the time I get to work, I get to share my exporting experiences with the "Reggies"at my work.
I call them the Reggies because they are the same group of women that we work with and according to my coworker, they have their regular times of the day that the make their "pitstop."
Do you remember when the Reggies had the "cell phone in public restrooms" war?
That was hilarious! The casualty of the entire battle was a crumpled warning sign in the garbage. And the war had ended! TAKE THAT! (no it was not me!)
Well the Reggies have been calm for quite some time, however I am the one getting irratated Maybe I might throw the first stone in this war.
Complaint #1: When there are 3 stalls, I pick the end one, why do you choose the toilet next to my stall? Do you not believe in the "3 foot comfort zone" when it is just 2 of us in the restroom.
Complaint #2: You contacted the building association and COMPLAINED to have toilet seat covers that cost me $400 to be installed. I am contacting the building association and leaving them a bill for $43.79 for the Lysol Scented sprays that need to be left on the back of the toilets. You left your mark Reggie, now lets follow the wilderness anthem "Leave No Trace". If not, let me teach your the multiple flush method. It works, I know, nothing needs to linger longer.
Every Public place I take my daughter to, she inevitably has to go to the bathroom. So to the common public:
Complaint #1: If the toilet automatic flushes and does not in the 2 minutes that you are in there, feel free to push the button and flush. No one wants a surprise to greet them.
Complaint #2
For the love of all that is holy, WASH YOUR HANDS with SOAP!!
There, I got that off of my chest! Continue on! Have a wondeful day! haha!

LMAO! I love it! Agree 100% with every complaint you have.

I also have no problems telling my kids to wash their hands "unlike the person who just walked out" and love to watch that person either glare at me or turn around and wash their hands.

Great post!

I agree with EVERYTHING!!! When my kids have friends over, I send them back to wash their hands and then have them use purel when they use our bathroom. Thank you OCD!

I agree with everything you said. My biggest complaint is watching people leave the stall and then never washing their hands, especially in restaurants! I then know that I have to use the same door handled they just used without washing their hands. Yeck! Usually I grab a paper towel and grab the door, but sometimes they do not have towles just air blowers. Don't get me started on airport restrooms. What I have seen people do there would stop you in your tracks.

I am totally OCD so public bathrooms and me do not get along really great!

AMEN to all you said! Gave me a chuckle too!

I noticed that more and more bathrooms have garbage cans by the door. I for one, use a paper towel to open that door because too many people DO NOT wash their hands. GROSS!!

When you work at a hospital, hand washing is 2000% important and thats part of my soapbox too!

I agree w/ everything my dear!
The Reggies? FUNNY! Let us know if you really do cast the first stone.

Ann Marie said...

Reggies??? Bahahahaha!

I am with Cherie's comment 100%!

That was funny! I hate public bathrooms.. I've gotten better but really hate taking me kids in the most.

It does AMAZE me what some people will doo! (get it?)

Heather said...

LOL!! You are so funny but I am with you all the way. I can't stand public restrooms and for a lot of the same reasons.
