Observations About Public Bathrooms are Hilarious

Have you ever noticed that in public bathrooms, hand-washing turns into a competition? Start using the sink at the same time as another person and watch how they bury their hands in mountains of soap, scrubbing and rinsing endlessly, afraid to be the first to shut off the water. Of course once they do make their way to the paper towel dispenser, the act is done. Does the paper towel land securely in the trash can, or does it bounce of the precarious stack of discarded waste and fall to the floor? Who cares? At that point, looking like a slob is no longer an issue. What if there is no paper towel dispenser, but rather one of those useless blow dryers? No matter, just wipe those meticulously cleaned hands on your pants, because, let's face it, cleanliness may be next to godliness, but showing off is more important still. It's the same reason you'll regularly find public toilets unflushed - if no one's watching you, there's no one to impress.

While I'm on the subject, I'd like to send an open message to the guy in the stall today who was having a long, serious conversation on his cell phone - that's gross, man.
