    Default Toilet etiquette in the workplace

    I have to go against the grain here. I don't put the lid down when I flush in public/at work. My don't want to touch the toilet lid/bowl unless absolutely necessary - god knows what happened to the lid when the person before me was in the cubicle (especially if it was that time of the month) . I am also a hoverer.

    Argh- germs are being thrown up into the air and hitting every surface of the cubicle every time you flush.

    It used to drive me crazy that almost every time I went to the toilet at work I had to change the toilet roll! I don't understand why others can't/don't change it if they've used the last of the roll that was there??

    Also the amount of people that would be talking on their phones while going to the toilet baffles me. If I could clearly hear what was going on surely the person on the other end of the phone would too? That would really gross me out if I was on the phone to someone.

    Oh & the mess that some people would leave behind was so gross! I wonder if people are the same in their own homes too or just at work where they expect others to clean up after them?

    Isn't that the whole point of washing your hands afterwards though? And like a PP said, you are spraying poo particles all over the room. YUCK!!!

    Argh! Touching a toilet seat when the odds indicate period blood has dropped on that seat since the cleaner last visited!

    There "may" be blood on the seat. But flush with the lid up, and there will "definitely" be poo (and possibly blood) particles everywhere.

    Worse when it looks like the tampon has been ripped out of them and flung on the cubicle walls

    Got to work this morning, went in the toilet cubicle ... Lid was closed. Opened lid ..... To find the toilet filled to the brim (nearly overflowing) with water, poo and paper.

    If you block the toilet people sneak back in later and stick a note on the damn thing saying it's out of action!
