Bring back f'ng paper towels in restrooms!

The whole move to "more sanitary" air dryers is completr bullshit because half the people dont even wash their hands (whole other topic). Now I am forced to use my clean hands to open a door handle that some a-hole before me who didnt bother washing his hands used.

Fucking dirty hippie shit.

Now there is simply a slip hazard because of the puddle under the dryer because 50% of it blows off your hands prior to evaporating.

I stopped using air dryers years ago.. Those things just high speed redeposit airborne fecal matter to your hands. I still wash but i'll wipe my hands on the back of my pant leg near the knee.

You could try grabbing the door handle where it doesn't typically get touched

I work for a Health Authority and we do not allow air dryers at any of our facilities because they are unsanitary and spread germs worse than not washing your hands.

Stainless steel towel dispensers need to come back too. Plastic is a breeding ground for germs and bacteria.

As someone who is a bit germaphobe, this also bothers me. I do keep hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes in the vehicle. Without bringing in your own paper towels, I really don't have a great solution. It is very frustrating though, especially if the door opens inwards and doesn't have one of the foot openers on it.

Your phone is probably worse than the toilet seat.

I will eat with greasy hands, pick up food off the floor, etc. But this is different. Why 1/3 the males don't wash their hands is a separate topic, but I don't want your junk on my fingers.

I use toilet paper sometimes, but there isn't even a trash can in half of the restrooms, so I throw it in the corner in that case, to hopefully make a statement.

Stupid thing that gets on my nerves.

hi Joe.

Seen this only once, I liked the idea, agree wish it was used more widely.

But hippies are stupid.

This has never crossed my mind.

I wash my hands before I piss if I'm in public.

Don't use the whole hand to open the door just use the little finger

hi Joe.
If the statement you're trying to make is that you're a lazy fuck who can't be bothered to carry your trash to a nearby trash can then I think you nailed it

I get a kick out of people that refuse to touch the rest room door bare handed due to the germs, what about the next thing you touch after leaving the restroom? Do the germs somehow magically disappear outside the door?
What about the restaurant chairs? Do you avoid touching them as well because the guy that didnít wash his hands after shaking his dick just grabbed the chair before you.

What about the first thing that they touch right after handling their own fecal matter? Yup, they touch their pants and belt and then go around touching them for the rest of the day. A belt is never sanitized. I bet a culture on one would be nasty.

The buildings I deal with at work all have paper towels in the rest rooms that are on optical sensors for dispensing.

Why don't you hook your purse on the door handle to open it.

Echoing what a couple of other people have said. Air dryers are less sanitary than paper towels.

I'm ok with the automated dispensers, the dispenser, that I think you're referring to, people grab about 15 too many.

Lol at any given time during the day I can say my dick is cleaner than most of my body. Germaphobes make me laugh. Yes Ecoli dysentery are serious but show me a case where they got one of these from a fucking door handle.

I wish I could take some of you tough guys to my filís annual shed party. I would love to see your faces when my mil makes me a yummy smammich made out of wildcat.

you guys are missing the fun that can be had with those. If you place a cup of talcum power in the bottom of one of those little black waste cans that they have in every office and put that right under the blower... The next person in there gets a surprise.
