Clean your bathroom more often.
The room you don’t bath in is the bathroom. The room you don’t rest in is the restroom. Of course, sometimes you do some of these things in some of these rooms some of the times. But did you know that back in the day they were called Comfort Stations? That’s because, for the most part, people crapped in the woods and washed their hands in streams. It was always cold and dark, and it was considered a comfort to sit on something and rest awhile while you handled your business. Nowadays, not like back in my days, we take these creature comforts for granted. What do you mean I can’t poop in 5 gallons of potable water? That is my right. What do you mean the urinal is out of order and I have to pee in the woods? That is unAmerican. What do you mean the hand dryer is out of order? I demand a refund. And while it’s good to have jobs, who wants to hand out breath mints and tissue things in a restroom? And don’t you just hate cleaning your own bathroom?
That’s enough rants for now (that was like 5 at least). I know there are way more important issues in the world than restrooms. But. I think restrooms deserve a voice too. As I’ve explained to my daughter, we all go poopoo and peepee. There are times and places for that. And some people have to go more often than others. Some people need special assistance to go. Wider doors and rails. Maybe lower toilet paper dispensers and hand dryers. But you know what? We all do it. If you’re walking around town and you suddenly have to go. If you’re about to head into a long meeting or go to bed, and you want to make sure you remain present for the entire experience. If you have a long car trip. Or if you’re like me and you spend your entire morning alternating between chugging water and chugging coffee.
But. We all spend time there. And time is the one thing we all have in common, no matter your age, race, orientation, or income. We all get the same amount of time in a day, and we all spend some of that time going poopoo or peepee. So we all owe it to ourselves to make the experience more better. For all of us.
