    I'm perhaps a bit weird but I always tear off the first sheet or two of paper and chuck it in the bowl because someone's hand has probably touched it and where was their hand last...? 😧

    I open the lid again after flushing, to check that it did indeed flush properly. (Awards self gold star for responsible public toilet use...)

    Further to this.... I had a stomach upset the other day. I snuck into a empty bathroom and ermmmm.... Used the facilities. I then was faced with the dilemma of not wanting to flush because .... Poo particles flying into the air and consequently onto me. So I closed the lid, flushed and then opened to check the evidence was gone and then left the lid up for the next person.

    And promptly bolted out before anyone else walked in.

    I do the same. I tear off a few pieces in fact. or if it's on a roll, I go through a few cycles of the roll to ensure no crossover. fresh paper for my bot bot please 😂

    I always tear some off and use it to wipe the seat whether or not it looks dirty.

    YOU ARE MY PEOPLE. The toughest decisions I make in my job are related to toilet etiquette! Along with all of VPs already mentioned rules, my rules are:

    1. If you're doing a #2 and someone walks in, you wait silently until they leave to continue dropping your guts.

    2. Further to point 1, if someone walks needing to do a #2 and there is someone in the other cubicle sitting silently, person #2 must leave so person #1 can finish their poo in peace.

    3. Unless you have gastro or a stomach disorder, you can never just open the flood gates the second you sit down when there is someone else in the bathroom. Slow and steady wins the race.

    4. If you're going to leave 1 square of toilet paper on the roll, at least make sure there is a new roll in that cubicle.

    5. If we run into each other a couple of times per day in the bathroom, we don't need to acknowledge that we're on the same peeing schedule. We will politely say hello and pretend it was the first time we've seen each other for the day.
    Definitely agree with all of the above!

    At the job before my last job we were lucky enough to have only a single toilet for each gender (oh happy days!!).

    However....not so at my last job. Two cubicles in the female toilet (and I assume the men's, but I never went in there). In all my time there I managed to avoid doing #2 while anyone else was in the other cubicle. Every #2 was so stressful with the constant threat of someone else walking in! If I needed to do #2 and I walked in and found that the other cubicle was occupied I had no shame in walking straight back out again. Would just try again later. They wouldn't have known who it was so I didn't care. Lol

    With a 10 hour workday, a daily work poo is almost like a break
    Everyone has to poo! In fact, at one workplace we had a Bristol stool chart we would report on
