Rhiannon: It’s one of those things no one really likes to talk about bathroom etiquette and there are certain things that we all know are taboo like picky your head over a bathroom soap. For example but as we spend more time at the office that means more time in the bathroom, so as we many women their etiquette tips for keeping coworkers from going crazy.
Female: I get skived out that when people don’t wash their hands and you know who doesn’t wash their hands.
Male: I see a lot of guys that—first of all they don’t wash their hands but they don’t flush there’s just no etiquette. I see a lot of things that talks thousand things like that really scare you.
Female: When people go to the bathroom and they don’t wash their hands leaving out the bathroom that gross.
Male: It’s unusual to see people talking to each other in bathrooms like people want to--getting out of there as quickly as possible.
Female: It’s not a social gathering. If you need toilet paper because there isn’t any in the stole and you’re not a different story but conversing back and forth no.
Male: There is a time and place for everything I think and the bathroom isn’t the time for chit-chat and conversations.
Female: I think that’s something that should be left in your own private restroom, bathroom in your home. I don’t think that’s something for a public restroom.
Male: I think some people are very conscious of what they bring in the bathroom I think if they bring something someone knows they’re doing something in there that will take them some time.
Female: With my daughter I have a limit when we’re out in public. She can only take two pieces of paper towel and she knows that and so yell at me if I take more than that.
Male: I think too—more than that I think you’re taking away from the next person.
Male: I just see people texting. My son text always in the bathroom, 19 years old and he text always in the bathroom.
Female: Cell phone it’s—in day and age, everybody has them not being rude and not speaking loudly having your conversation loud enough to that everybody can hear I think is wrong.
Male: I don’t think it’s a place for conversation or caring and meeting is as in the men’s room.
Female: It’s rude, it’s rude not only to the people who are in the bathroom but also the person near their line.
Female: Getting my cell phone on me if it rings and you’re in the bathroom no whatever I’ll answer that, I don’t have a problem with that.
Female: So Michael be here on Thursday that’s great. Okay mom I’m going to call you back. And remember come in courtesy. And you might want to keep those work conversations limited because you never know who’s in the next stole. Hey Wency, for better I’m Rhiannon.
Audra Lowe: And if you got coworkers that just don’t follow the rules consider having a meeting and coming up with some things that you guys can all agree on and the post them in the men’s and ladies restrooms.
