@LeavinOnAJetPlane:  I don’t think this has anything to do with walmart as much as it has to do with public bathrooms and hand washing. Some people just aren’t as hygenic as others! 

I always care hand sanitizer with me and tissues in my bag!

So this one time someone tells you they didn’t wash their hands… 99% of the time you’d never know. I always use a paper towel to open a public restroom’s door.

Honestly, I feel sorry for the poor woman. I can’t imagine how hard it must be to be so physically exhausted that the idea of opening doors or washing hands is a struggle.

@MissCalifornia: Maybe, but it’s also likely that she just didn’t feel like washing her hands and wanted attention, because if you can’t wash your hands because you’re so exhausted, what are you doing out shopping? (Not that that isn’t also a reason to feel bad for her…)

Ick !!

I don’t think it has much to do with Walmart either…

(Guessing tho that in the USA there is some sort of belief that these stores attract a “lower class” of customer, as I’ve seen similar posts on other places on the Internet in the past… including one of “What They Wore to Walmart !!” )


Not washing one’s hands after using the washroom is GROSS !!

Like you I’d be pee-d at that sh!t (all puns intended)

And I would indeed be using Papertowel or some TP to open the door (any washroom door) … but then again that is something I do anyhow… lol, and if there isn’t PT and a garbage can nearby to chuck it in, I’ve been known to be the person who takes my time until someone else opens the door.  Ain’t no way in H3LL… that I’m touchin it !!

Oh. Dear. Lord. That is horrible. I am sorry you had to deal with that.

Now, me.  I’m a confrontational person. I have a bit of a mean streak in me. I would have said, “I guess we’ve reached an impass because there’s no way I’m touching that door after your germ infested hands have.” Then I would have stood there and stared at her. I would have gotten a good laugh out of it.

TO @LeavinOnAJetPlane:  you said,

And I would have felt sorry for her, but she honestly seemed just fine. This was  not a woman in her upper 90’s. She was late 50’s tops. She was just lazy. If you  have enough energy to walk around a large Walmart, you have enough energy to  wash your hands, especially after sitting down.

Hmm, don’t know about that.

As someone who is over 50, I can tell you that I have some friends who might look relatively young-ish and OK on the outside, but their insides are pretty messed up. 

Diabetes, Coronary issues, Arthritis… some of them struggle to get around some days… but they go out anyhow “because they have to” be it for banking, grocery store, errands etc.

It is possible that your description of LAZY is inaccurate.

Ya never know the full story until you walk in someone else’s shoes

We really have no idea of the problems of other people. I would have maybe asked her if she needed some help before tagging her as lazy and writing about her on a wedding forum.

@LeavinOnAJetPlane:  That’s why you just grab a paper towel and open the door. No need to touch anybody’s anything after they’ve touched something.
