    Mostly, and especially if I’m tired or tipsy, TP. Sometimes I hover, though.

    I figure everyone else is hovering and putting down the TP so I sit. 🙂  lol  It should be noted that I only use public bathrooms at work and we have these seats that automatically change plastic around the seat with every use.

    I always wipe the seat off before I sit down. If the seat appears clean after me wiping then I sit down. However if its a highly trafficked public restroom that has funky stains on it or cigarette burns then I will hover and again wipe the seat afterwards if I miss at all.

    I do not understand how one could just sit down without either wiping the seat or laying down TP. I have made that mistake before and sat on something wet. Regardless of whether it was pee or just water from the toilet splashing after being flushed – it grosses me out.

    I just sit unless it seems wet…then I go to another stall.  No point in wiping it off…it’s probably still there!

    I pretty much refuse to use any bathroom but my own but in emergencies, I hover!

    The only time I bother hovering is at those kinds of outdoor concerts where everyone is smoking weird things and I’m half afraid of what they’ve been doing in the porta potties… and at raves…

    … otherwise unless there’s suspicious looking wetness on top of the seat I get comfy.

    I used to always hover, now if it’s a cramped stall I’ll lay TP. I still trust the hover though 🙂

    Unless I feel like the bathroom is particularly nasty, I just sit.

    I HATE hover-ers who then piss all over the seats.  It’s probably a billion times dirtier than it was before, now that it has piss on it.  GROSS. WIPE IT OFF!

    I am literally SHOCKED at the number or people that sit on seats uhgggggghhhh Gross. I always squat in public. At work I put tissue down  because we have 4 bathrooms to 40 people and men use a different one from us. At home is the only place I sit and even then I lysol it and just my Fiance and I share a bathroom.

    I wipe thoroughly, then sit.  I used to try the hover, but I’ve had unfortunate situations when it decided to trickle down my leg instead of going into the toilet – not interested in that happening again.

    I have a bladder disorder, so I sit. I don’t care. Squatting makes it too hard to go. Plus I’ve never caught anything from a toilet seat so I don’t really care. I wash my hands afterwards, and I don’t eat off my butt, so I think I’m safe.

    When I worked at a drop-in center for homeless people who were under the influence, we had one toilet for 40+ people. Then I hovered.

    Sometimes I put TP down but for the most part I just sit down… I actually heard that hovering is the WORST because it makes things splash up at you, where as if you’re sitting its much less likely.. ewwy
