None of these issues is enough to warrant a Pit thread on their own, but combined? Over the course of many years? Gah!
By public restrooms, I include those owned by private businesses but are meant for the public. Those in restaurants count, for example.
-Where did all the hooks go? In nearly every stall in nearly every public restroom, there are two holes in the door. These were obviously made for hooks where one can hang one’s jacket or shopping bags. And in nearly every stall, there is no hook. This means laying one’s coat on a filthy, piss-drenched floor. Yuck.
-Tiny stalls. I hate having to be an acrobat just to wipe myself. Often my elbow will hit the wall, and my arm will ricochet and cause my poopy filled TP to touch my thigh, pants, or shirt. A pox on the engineers that have no consideration for the absent-minded/clumsy among us!
-Poorly designed TP dispensers. There are many different kinds, But I am specifically talking about the kind where there is a giant roll on top of another giant roll. The result of all of this TP available is that none is dispensed, except in a form that makes the stall look like a hamster cage.
-Sensors on faucets, hand driers, and paper towel dispensers. I sometimes have to look at myself in the mirror to ensure that I have not, in fact, turned into a vampire. I then have to perform the seven basic conductor moves to get any reaction at all.
-Sensors on toilets. Indistinguishable from random flushing.
-Empty paper towel dispensers. I fucking HATE having to dry my hands on toilet paper.
-Empty soap dispensers.
-Underpowered hand driers. Or hand driers that shut off after 0.187 seconds. Ensures that I will either wipe my hands on my pants or seek out toilet paper.
-Non-working faucets. Sometimes they dispense cold water, sometimes they dispense no water. They almost never dispense hot water.
-Stall doors that shut but do not latch. Arrrggghhh!
At least I have no issues with urinals. And I didn’t even mention pee on toilet seats.
