    I was in a mall once, in high school, went into a stall, and looked down and to the right of me, saw a pair of mens black wing tips. I was outa there.

    Let's just all agree not to wash hands or shake them either.

    In England, it is quite common to take one's wife into the mens if the queue for the ladies is too long.

    I doubt American men have such good manners (because we didn't send the best on the boat over here).

    Un, as a female, I don't think I want to use a men's room, I heard the noise in there, lol.

    American men are okay, I am an American woman so I can cast this vote. Not all American men, but nothing is ever 100 percent, well, not most things.
    I love those little people things you do, I get a kick out of them.

    Not sure where that urban legend came from. When I was still in high school doing the typical early jobs (fast food, drive in, etc.) one of the worst assignments was cleaning the "ladies" room. Male and female coworkers agreed on this. I was accustomed to cleaning the dairy pen, using the manure spreader, cleaning calf sheds, delivering calves and slopping the hogs, but cleaning the ladies room was not for the faint of heart. The men's room was less of an adventure to clean.

    Why don't men wash in public restrooms? I try to avoid touching ANYTHING while in there...including door handles and faucets.

    The way a "lady" keeps the bathroom is not the same thing as her personal sanitary habits. One is housekeeping habits the other is personal hygenics.

    Unless a person really has a health problem, or is at high risk, mainly an immunity problem you really don't need to go through so many loops regarding certain things. It is wise to take precautions, yes but it doesn't need to be as extreme.

    Life changes when you have an immunity problem or at high risk and people like us we have to change with it but their is no need for a healthy person to do so many things. If it were me, I wouldn't. I would just live my life normally.

    I use elbows and feet to do almost everything in the mens room and after washing my hands I use the wet towels to turn off the water and open the door then drop it the waste can if it is near by or floor behind the door...I figure I am assuring some one of a cleaning job....

    Actually in America the wimmen don't need to be escorted by their hubby
    Bar I used to work at in Boston the girls always used the men's room stall
    Some guys would stop mid-stream when the stall door opened & a girl walked out

    They are not unrelated and instead appear to be correlated.

    Biology makes good hygiene more challenging for women. Seeing what women do to bathrooms, there is no way that their hands are cleaner...whether or not they use soap.

    The Osage indians bathed regularly and the word they used for white women roughly translated to "she who stinks under her dress."

    Nah, they are unrelated, it is a woman thing. Oh, by the way I live in a household of men, worked with men, shared same bathrooms with men, and you guys are sloppy. Never met a man who doesn't take off his clothes and they stay where they drop. Women smell much better than most men, men can stink.

    Funny you should mention indians, you never quite know who you can be talking to via these means ha ha ha ha ha.

    Default hi

    This is what i was reading, so the antibacterial hand/dish soap that we use is not the same chemical makeup or at lower concentration than what the medical institution uses.
    oh.................
