Writes Natalie in Cardiff: “I noticed this a little while ago in the changing rooms of my local leisure centre. I thought it fit in nicely with the public/private restroom notes these last couple of days. Perhaps people in South Wales are a little mixed-up too!”

Our submitter from Washington state found this note in one of the restrooms in her office building.”The toothbrushes and mouthwash have been there for a few weeks,” she says. “I’m not sure why they’re there or who posted the note, but I appreciate the incredulous tone.”
I don’t really have anything against brushing your teeth at the office, but between yesterday’s note and today’s, I’m starting to wonder if “public restroom” means something different to people on the West Coast. This posting from a Los Angeles-based Yelp user only deepened my suspicions:

Basic hygiene: Sadly, one of those things that some people make it to college without learning…until they end up with a bio major for a roommate.

I can only imagine the search queries that went into locating this delightful bit of clip art, which now decorates the ladies’ room at a medical school in Philadelphia. Now pour Lady Sansa some wine.

While traveling in India on business, Melissa spotted this sign in all of the women’s restrooms at one office.
Note: Based on my experience with this site, I have to conclude that the fairer sex most definitely does not “define hygiene.”

Yeah, I get that you don’t want to touch the germy bathroom door handle with your just-washed hands. But that makes tossing your paper towel on the floor okay…how? And this is hardly an isolated problem. To wit:
From Margi’s office in Green Bay, Wisconsin (just click the image to enlarge):
From Edmonton, Alberta:
From Brittany’s office in Chicago:
From a hospital in Durham, North Carolina:
And finally, from Eileen’s office in Cincinnati, Ohio…

Our submitter, Amanda, occasionally skates at an ice arena where an NHL and several college hockey teams practice. As a result, she says, “it smells like sweaty feet all of the time” — and apparently, most visible surfaces are also covered with spit.
Adds Amanda: “My favorite parts of this note are a) the awesome word art, and b) the idea that they have to stop spitting on the walls only because of recent health concerns.”

Writes Brad in North Carolina: “This was in the bathroom at work, and I must have read it three or four times before admitting I didn’t have a clue what was happening. The confusion could have been due to the grammar, the punctuation, or the notion that people blow their nose on the countertop (?!?).
Perhaps there’s a snot-rocketer on the loose?
Adds Brad: “In the day and a half since the note has been up, nobody has touched that roll of toilet paper.”
