One Day and a few times when I have gone out to public washrooms and when I had gone into them, I was very disgusted as I went to use the facilities. I had come out to wash my hands and I saw somebody else finish their business and flush the toilet, and that person did not even bother to go toward the sink to wash her hands. Immediately before she went toward the door, I said to her excuse me but aren’t you supposed to wash your hands after you use the washroom? I said would you please wash your hands? 3 other witnesses saw and agreed with me and what does she say? She said I am in a rush I can’t right now, I said your not leaving the washroom until you do, so she said you cannot tell me what to do, I said Oh yes I can. this is a public place, you should know better. Others use the washroom too. Its not only yours. She said Ok fine I will. So I made her wash her hands right in front of me. She said, there, are you happy now? I said yes very. Then I said you could be spreading really terrible germs and disease by not washing your hands and I said that is why disease and people get sick a lot more in public places. I said think about that. That is why so much more bacteria, all these sicknesses come from, because some people have poor hygiene, and some people do not take the little extra time to wash themselves especially using the washroom where the most bacteria and the most sicknesses can be carried out from. People do not realize the consequences that can arise from just that. People do not take washing hands seriously. It is a big problem in the society and I have seen it happen way too often when I am out in a shopping mall, etc…
I do not really care who the person is, if I see you in the washroom not washing your hands and just leaving, I will make sure that person washes their hands right in front of me. Its so important to do so for at least 15-30 seconds and lathering very well.
I am just disgusted on how people do not even wash after themselves, they do not even take care of themselves concerning proper Hygiene. It is very imperitive that people learn to be more clean and more respectful to others when in public of offensive odors. I cannot even count the number of times I have sat in Doctors offices, or have been in public transit(which I do not take anymore), and among grocery stores and all that jazz. I do not believe how some people can live in their own filth. It is beyond me. I hope people learn that public places aren’t just for that person, its shared by many and thats the most easiest way to get into contact with disease and sickness, which is why sometimes we hear that there are the flu viruses going on, swine flu, H1N1, Sars, hepatitis, pneumonia, the cold, head colds, bacterial infections, its because some people who choose to be dirty and spread these terrible things around are responsible for it. People who sneeze and cough right in their hands and touch things or touch people get the sicknesses faster. When coughing or sneezing, do it toward your elbow area or turn your head. Believe it or not, but the hand is the most place for bacteria as our hands touch and sometimes you never know where others hands may have come contact with or something. I see people rooting around in their nose, I see people picking at their teeth with their nails. EWWW Disgusting!
Everytime I step into my house the bottom of my bag gets disinfected, My hands are thoroughly washed even more then when I use the public restroom. Since I was a little child my parents always taught me the importance of hygiene and to be very clean before going out and even at home. The bathrooms are maintained almost everyday. Some public restrooms you go to are so filthy, the seats and the bowl is so disgusting and that is another thing, people leave the washroom without flushing. It is so disgusting. I do not know why people are like this, and why they do not have the smarts or common sense to take a second to flush the toilet or to take 15-30 seconds to wash hands.
Advice to all my readers. If you see somebody who doesn’t wash hands and if you see something disgusting happening, do not be afraid to tell them straight up, it doesn’t matter if they beef or vent at you, it means you have done your job. If they don’t listen, at least you have said something. I have seen it happen way too often and more these days. It needs to stop.
Hopefully some day people will learn to be more clean.
