Default Washing your hands when you use a public restroom.

If you wash your hands after you use a public restroom... can you walk through the exact experience:

Step One. Open door to bathroom (door between public space and bathroom).
x
x
x
x Urinate and/or defecate.
x
x
x
Final Step. Exit back to public space.

It amazes me all the different that people touch AFTER they wash their hands.

Go.

Paper napkins or tissues work well in all of those instances.....we keep then in our cars for just those purposes...

Step one: Go to location that doesn't use doors.
Step two: Don't pee on hands

If above situation isn't possible, open front and back doors of truck and piss on ground in secluded spot.

I don't need you or the government to tell me how/when to wash my hands. If I want to wipe my a$$, touch door knobs on the way out, then eat some finger-licking good ribs after, its my choice. Merica!

If you really want to get freaked out just observe how many don't bother to wash their hands and leave the bathroom bypassing the sinks. This is why I abhor shaking hands with strangers.

I have no concerns with touching gas pumps. I just find it comical that people will wipe their asses. Go to the sink, turn the knobs with those same hands... scrub their hands because they think they'll get the covid... then turn off the water of those very same knobs with the hands that were clean (and now aren't)... then they walk out, and grab the same handle, etc.

Never mind all the "other" things (paper towel dispenser, etc.)

After washing hands, i use a paper towel to turn off sink, another to open door. If there no trash can by door on way out, paper towel goes on floor

I should have checked if this was an Old Pete post....I haven't seen a knob turner in a public restroom for 20 years. And if so, I get my paper towel first and use that until I get out.

It's getting much more common now to see door handles with an 'elbow hook' on top in bathrooms.

I don't assume I'm going to die if I touch something and don't instantly wash off, but it just takes a little planning on the way in on what the exit strategy is.

Chances are if they have old fashioned sink knobs and doorknob, they have paper towels and not an air dryer. Usually the planning is in terms of where the trash is so I can lob the paper towel wad in there after I get the door open.

I wash my hands but mostly because it's social convention and others feel icky if I don't. If my man junk was so dirty I couldn't touch it without washing my hands, I would wash my man junk.

Step 3 is to pee a little onto floor so it splashes on the dudes feet at next urinal wearing flip flops.

I learned this on THT a few years ago where the life lesson was to use the regular toilet stall when wearing flip flops.

My public bathroom is the side of the road.

...And I'm watching you Pete. Every move make, every breath you take I'll be watching you.

I haven't seen a single person ever, not once, use a paper towel to touch the facet in a rest room. Must be a THT thing. But I applaud you for thinking it through.

I think I just figured out the mask wearing thing.
