No one likes using public bathrooms, but everyone has to at some point. But it doesn't have to be a shitty experience. Well, except for in that one way.
Follow this code of conduct and make life better for you and everyone who follows.
Skip washing your hands
It's dirty in bathrooms, probably because of all the poop and pee. You may think you didn't touch anything gross, but you definitely, 100% did.
Fake-wash your hands
You were probably that kid who ran his toothbrush under the faucet, weren't you? Mom's not here to check your breath, but come on, you're going to touch other people with those hands eventually. You're a grown-up now, presumably.
Text at the urinal
We get it! You're "totally addicted to your phone!" You're a big important person who can't spend 30 seconds disconnected or the entire global economy will collapse! When people have their junk out, it's not appropriate to be handling a device that has a camera.
Use the urinal or stall right next to someone when others are available/clean
You probably recline fully and manspread on every flight, don't you?
Choose the hand dryer over paper towels
Using a hand dryer after washing your hands is an excellent way to fling poop particles everywhere. It also does a terrible job of drying your hands. A recent study shows that using a regular hand dryer can catapult 60 times the amount of germs than using paper towels does, and don't even think about those fancy-ass jet dryers -- they blast 1,300 times the amount of germs.
