Bathroom Habits

Okay so this is not a post about my bathroom habits or my kids bathrooms habits. If I had a blog on offices, it would probably be more appropriate to post there, but I don't. So just humor me a bit and listen, perhaps answer some questions and/or give me some insight. I have categorized some women's habits (and I don't believe it is just one) on what I experience at least once a week at the office bathroom

The Bathroom Flusher
This is one that baffles me. A woman (lets hope) comes in and flushes the toilet before she uses it. It isn't the fact that people do not flush toilets after they are done where I work. I actually have NEVER had that problem. I just wonder what does that do exactly? Does that take away some butt germs? Do you just want a clean pot even though the water was clear of bodily functions before? I don't get it.

The Mid Flusher
This REALLY baffles me. A woman will be obviously using the bathroom, flush and then continue to use it. Sometimes it between a number 1 and a number 2. I am hoping the woman lifts her butt just a little off the seat, because I am sure with the power of the commercial toilet flush, water always comes up just a little bit. Gross I know, which is why I need to know the purpose of the mid flush. It isn't like we're all heavy set construction workers using the bathroom after an all you can eat Indian buffet and fear clogging the toilet. What is the deal?

The Procrastinator
This is the woman that just sucks. I think its pretty common (at least in a woman's public bathroom) that if you are going #2, you wait to do the job to refrain from any noisy embarrassments while another woman is in the bathroom. If you know a woman is doing a #2, then you do what you need to do and get out of there. Its common courtesy. Now there are some exceptions to that rule. Sometimes women can not hold it and we all sympathize silently and make a quick exit. Except we have these women that like to dawdle even though you just squeaked out one noisy you know what (sorry to be descriptive here) and they just wait around doing their hair, fixing their make up, and singing Kum Ba Ya. Okay, well maybe they don't sing, but you get the jist of what I am saying. Just do everyone a favor and leave. You don't need to look hot at work and you don't need to redo your hair seven million times.

The Over Compulsive Handwasher
Now this is a tricky one. I fully believe you should wash your hand thoroughly after using the bathroom. We all know the "Happy Birthday Rule". So washing your hands for longer then what it would take Sarah McLaughlin or Pink Floyd to sing one of their songs is insane.

The Bathroom Sprayer
Not to be too gross, but you know when someone has had a gross you know what and when the bathroom smells just fine. Even with the bathroom sprayer you know if it was needed or not. However, some woman or women where I work is in love with this spray regardless of the situational smell going on in the bathroom. The spray smells nasty and just about as good as the scent of Aqua Net. This person or persons always use this can like they went through every inch of the bathroom and used this spray. I am all for masking nasty odors, but use it sparingly and don't use it when the bathroom is odor free. I have actually contemplated about throwing the can away, but my fear is that would be regretted next time I enter the bathroom.

Finally, I don't want you to think that all I do is use a bathroom or stay in there for long periods of time at work. I don't. I do what I need to do and get out. There is no reason to hang out there. I just wonder what the hell is up with some of these women?

You need to get a hand held bathroom bidet sprayer and you will be in Heaven. For those of us who really like to be clean it is the best invention since the toilet. It is so much better than a stand alone bidet and this is why: 1. It's less expensive (potentially allot less) 2. You can install in yourself = no plumber expense 3. It works better by providing more control of where the water spray goes and a greater volume of water flow. 4. It requires no electricity and there are few things that can go wrong with it. 5. It doesn't take up any more space, many bathrooms don't have room for a stand alone bidet. 6. You don’t have to get up and move from the toilet to the bidet which can be rather awkward at times to say the least. Available at
