Any one else have co-workers who have absolutely no regard for bathroom etiquette? Am I the only person who believes there are unspoken bathroom guidelines to which everyone should follow?
I work in a very large building, and each bathroom has around 7 stalls. Why is it, that when I am the only person going to the restroom and another person walks in, they always sit in the stall right next to me? There are 6 other stalls to choose from and you sit in the one right next to me??
Or what about the grown women who still have not learned how to flush the toilet?
Or people who do flush but leave the seat cover on?
So ladies – what, if any, bathroom guidelines drive you crazy if not followed? Am I the only one who finds this stuff annoying?

i’ve learned that grown women are absolutely disgusting in office bathrooms.

1. Do NOT talk to me while I’m in the stall. This happens to me all the time and it’s just unacceptable. SHUT. UP.
2. Wash yo’ hands. Do you know how many women I see walk out of the bathroom without washing their hands? It’s disgusting.

And don’t talk on your cell phone in the stall. It grosses me out to think about all the germs on that phone your mouth is pressed up against all day.

OMW — YES!!!
My office now has someone who leaves the seat covers on, someone who doesn’t flush, and, In My Humble Opinion the worst, the groaner. She’s middle aged and regularly (I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s daily, since I seem to run into her in the ladies’ at least once a week) spends an extended period of time in the handicap stall of the restroom very loudly moaning, groaning and audibly straining. It is disturbing – I can’t imagine what it would be like to live with that kind of bathroom experience so frequently, and I feel for her, healthwise, but she’s a little too comfortable with it and is loud and proud no matter whether there are other people in the bathroom or not.
It just seems so gross to me!

Who is the grown woman in my office who has not figured out that our environmentally friendly low-flush toilets are not capable of flushing tampons? I can not imagine leaving the stall without making sure everything has flushed properly, but apparently plenty of my colleagues can….
And oh yeah, the cellphone people (although I haven’t encountered it since my department got its own floor). I like to flush while they’re chatting. Repeatedly.

@ddw: My office now has someone
since i put signs on the back of the female toilet doors (meaning as soon as they sit down they are reading them and i have pics as well) reminding them to clean & flush i havent had a repeat performance but really – i need to do that for women?

Wow, so I guess I’m not alone in this!
You know, men get a bad wrap for their bathroom behaviors, but I’d take a raised toilet seat to an unflushed tampon any day.

The thing that annoys me most about people who talk on their cellphones in the BR is that I get to be background noise to their conversation!
Leave your phone at your desk and use it outside the bathroom for goodness sake.

I used to work in a restaurant and had to clean the bathrooms at night and the womens were always WAY more grose than the mens… especially when they get blood all over the toilet. Like seriously? Or, how is there pee on the floor or on the back of the toilet? HOW? You sit down to pee! And I am sorry, there are some smells that should NEVER come out of a womens bathroom. And the place for your tampons and pads is in the small trash can inside the stall… not on the floor. Women are so grose. The worst I had to deal with in the mens was the occasional forgetting to flush or missing the target. Thats it! I had all that in the womens PLUS SOME.

I am the only female at work and every time I go to the bathroom the seat is up and there is pee on the floor- I am constantly asking “what does your wife say when you do this at home?” and the answer I get is always something along the lines of “I wouldn’t do it at home my wife would go off.” Argh! Then don’t do it here moron!
The worse thing though was when I was working at a department store and all female staff was banned from the staff toilets (lost the use of staff showers too) because some woman continuously left her used tampons on the floor next to the toilet- even though every stall had a sanitary bin in it!
Oh and then there are the clients who come into the office I am in now for meetings and go to the bathroom and sit in there for over five minutes leaving it impossible to walk in there without passing out from the smell for at least half an hour.
And don’t even get me started on the “presents” grown woman would leave behind in the showers when I worked at a gym.

ok i have one….
Don’t be a turd burglar.
Let me give you a little background…I have a problem using public restrooms anyway. This might sound weird but I don’t like people to hear me pee. Even at home I run the water.
So if I am “dropping the kids off” in public, it’s probably an emergency and I can’t go if someone is in there with me. Seriously, I physically can not do it. So if you see someone is chilling in the back stall when you get in the bathroom then you need to be a non turd burglar and do your business and get out. No fixing your hair, or taking your sweet ass time.
In then out…. help a poor girl out.

I hear ya!
I cannot believe how many people don’t flush the toilet.
And I hate it when people don’t wash their hands. Especially where I work, I work in a hospital, we’re always getting bombarded with info about the importance of hand hygiene! (Note: These aren’t doctors or nurses that I work with, just office people, but still!)
Oh, and one time a couple months ago, I started to walk into a stall and there was a piece of poop on the floor! YUCK!

Bathroom etiquette is the difference between women and ladies.
