Do you think people in public restrooms only wash their hands because the other people in the room are washing their hands?

some, but not all, I can't go without washing my hands, I just think it's desgusting when people don't wash.

ive seen girls that walk out without washing... eww

Ew, God no I hope not. That place is filthy. Go wash your hands because you don't want diseases.

I can honestly say that the presence or absence of other people in the bathroom doesn't affect myself, and I can't possibly assume that other people are so different from myself that they would as well.
11 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 5/30/08 - 7:30:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
Depends on the person.
11 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 5/30/08 - 8:01:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
Some people do, but not all.
11 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 5/30/08 - 9:52:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't care why they do it, as long as they do. I hate to think of people not washing their hands and then going on to use handles, railings, shake hands etc.
11 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/2/08 - 1:27:46 AM EST (GMT-5)
i hate it when i go in, and somebody always comes out and heads straight for the door!
11 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/6/08 - 11:39:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
Probably some people do that. Some just blatantly walk out the door though!

I'm sure some people do it for that reason. I'm compulsive about washing my hands, though, or at least using anti-bacterial hand gel (which I keep in my purse) in case there's no soap left, which happens all too often.
11 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 7/15/08 - 6:42:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I've seen many women do the same thing, then thy play it off like they "forgot" so they better go back and wash.
11 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 12/25/08 - 10:41:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes...most of the girls at my school seem to "sneak off" without washing if I'm in a stall and the only other person in the bathroom.
11 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 12/26/08 - 6:12:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
That thought is disturbing. Whether my presence affects someone's decision to wash up or not... it's fine by me if it affects them to wash. One less dirty pair of hands in the world.
8 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 2/10/12 - 9:24:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. That's what I do. I won't wash my hands unless there's someone else in the bathroom.
5 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 11/2/14 - 2:18:21 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't wash my hands most of the time. Because I don't PEE on my hands. But I know if I walk out in front of someone without washing my hands, they might freak out. So I wash my hands when someone can see me. Also, when I'm on my period I wash my hands.

My dick is cleaner than the faucet handles in public restrooms so unless I spazz out and piss all over my hands I avoid public sinks.

If they have motion sensing faucets, soap dispensers and drying equipment I'll wash my hands.
5 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 11/30/14 - 10:42:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
Maybe other people, but not me. I wash my hands whether other people are in there or not.

I'm pretty sure there've been some studies showing that witnesses increase hand-washing. There was one where all the sinks were located together outside the 2 restrooms and hand-washing was near 100%.

And this. In some ways, it makes more sense to wash your hands *before* you go to the bathroom. There's no telling what your hands have touched. Your cotton-swaddled crotch baby has likely been protected from all the things since showering and getting dressed.

Maybe.

I think a lot of people do like washing their hands though.

I always appreciate a chance to get my hands clean when I'm out. I would never skip a wash.
5 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 12/2/14 - 8:43:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
I can't speak for other people, but that's certainly the reason that I do...unless my hands were already dirty or I got piss on them

U saw a cllip of a guy at a festival who thought he should wash his hands because their was a camera present, the trouble is he mistook the large urinal trough for a communal hand basin.
