One in 10 people avoid using public toilets unless absolutely necessary. One in 10 people will abuse toilet etiquette in many way. And the person writing this will be charged with murder the day he lands upon your guilty verdict in messing a public facility.
I’m talking about using the toilet for a long call of nature and not urinals. That one is for another day.
Seriously, a public toilet is supposed to be the most welcoming place of privacy, but thanks to human nature, we have connived to make it the most disgusting place to visit.
You already want to puke just by seeing the mass of content someone has downloaded from their digestive web site. The person will not flush the toilet. The next user will be the victim, contenting their face as they surrender to download theirs as well.
Granted, sometimes situations beyond our means force us to abuse toilet etiquette. Things like finding no tissue, no water or lack of brush.
However, the truth is that many users even think that the small brush usually tucked at the corner of a toilet is meant to be used by the officially cleaner. No way! Janitors have their equipment, the small brush is there to ensure that when you soil the seat, you do the needful. Few do it. They just walk away,
Now, do you ever feel happy when you enter a toilet and find it in a mess?
There was this day I entered a toilet and found it holding a mass that looked like it had dropped from a nuclear engineer. The thing was that big. Disgusted, I lost the urge to shoot. However, just as I stepped out, a colleague walked in and headed straight for the toilet.
Back in office, he looked at me like I was the culprit. I wish I had flushed the mess instead. The world would be a lot healthier for humanity if we learned to care and do the right thing.
