Do you hover over the toilet in public bathrooms?

I suppose this is a little tacky of me to ask, but what the heck?

Not only do I not go all the way down, so as not to touch the seat, I still cover the heck out of it with those covers, or toilet paper! Then, I don't touch the flush mechanism, either. I use tissue for that, or my foot. You should see me when I go to wash! I wash, then grab paper towels, dry & then use them to turn off the water! (If only driers are available, I use my elbow.) Finally, if I need to touch a door handle to get out, I use a barrier for this, too! I toss the paper towel outside in a trashcan, or after propping the door open with my foot, so I can lean back in & pitch it into the can. And nothing is ever placed on the floor, ever!

That's what I do, and clearly, I have issues! What about you? Do you hover? What else do you do?

I do what you do. I have had this discussion with other woman I work with....we all do pretty much that same thing. You are far from alone!

I hover but do not wrap the seat in paper.

Are you my twin? I do the exact same things when I use a public toilet!

I don't think you have issues. Public bathrooms are disgusting to being with, and a lot of people have poor hygiene, which just makes it worse.

I don't go quite as far as you go. If I put something on the toilet then I will sit on it, and sometimes I touch the flusher because I know that I am going to wash my hands afterwards. But yes, after my hands are washed then I use barriers until I'm out.

I use the public toilets here... oh the horror stories I can tell you. But not today.

They are squatting toilets, so you ALWAYS hover. And your used paper goes in the rubbish bin not the toilet. OH! And there is never tissue in the bathroom. So when travelling through China bring your own tissues. Flushing, there is a foot pedal. And most people NEVER wash their hands. And there is hardly ever soap in the bathroom.

I use the cleaning women's sink and soap next door to the ladies at work, and grin and HOLD IT till I get home when out in public.

I had some of the same problems when traveling in Europe in the early 80's! Italy was the worst for this! All the road side toilets were holes in the ground with 2 foot markers for where you squatted over the literal hole in the ground, that's it! no flush, no hole cover, rim, paper, lights, NOTHING! Now, in the gas stations, etc, they had toilets, but NEVER any toilet paper, (not even a holder for paper), thank heavens I always carried tissue for blowing my nose! The other girls never seemed to catch on after the 1st time it happened, they were always surprised. And no, there was never anything to wash with, you were lucky to have a sink! The used paper going in a bin instead of the toilet is a new one for me, Woman! How.....charming! Should I send you hand sanitizer, you poor thing?! By now you must have killer pelvic floor muscles from holding it all the time!

I have to say, I am pleasantly surprised at the feedback saying people do the same/similar things! Thanks for the support, VeganChick! And Rossie, I have read other comments from you, that I can't recall right this moment, that do make me think we might be relatives, if not twins! I'm not germaphobic, I just don't like other people's germs, ha ha ha! ( notice no hands for the emoticon? That's cos they are behind the back so as not to touch anything icky! )

I hate public bathrooms and don't use them unless I absolutely have to. When I do, I do hover.
