6. Pregnant lady who smells like popcorn – You put your lanyard with your keys on the floor. Then you put it on your neck. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Rules to live by (borrowed from this site):

Despite this assurance from a germ expert, many people find public restrooms disgusting–and some are downright fearful of them. To assuage some of those fears and the ick-factor do this:

    • Use the last stall, people are too lazy to walk to the end.

Use your foot instead of your hand to flush it.

You are more likely to pick up germs on your hands than on your behind. So wash your hands with hot water and soap for at least 30 seconds.

Make sure your children also wash their hands thoroughly. Little kids typically put their hands on the toilet seat to steady themselves, and these germs could lead to an infection once those hands touch the nose, mouth or eyes.

After you dry your hands, use a clean, dry paper towel on the door knob. Other people who didn’t wash their hands have touched that knob, leaving it coated in bacteria.

Hang your purse and diaper bag. Don’t ever place them on the restroom floor. In a study in which Gerba examined women’s purses, he found that fully one-third of them had fecal bacteria on the bottom. If there isn’t a hook in the stall, hang your purse around your neck!
