Public Bathroom Behavior: The Ultimate Toilet's Signs and Rules (for men mostly...)

Public Bathroom Behavior:

The Ultimate Toilet's Signs and Rules (for men mostly...)

Like it happens from time to time on this blog, today's post has nothing to do with wine. 

It is a long-overdue rant against men's behaviors and hygiene in the toilets (public and/or private).

We are told that the world is doom, that men have no more morals, values, respect, or even discipline, and I couldn't agree more, especially when it comes to going to a public toilet (at work, at a mall, at a gas station, at a metro station, at a restaurant, etc, etc...). 

And personally, I cannot take it no more and I have to vent it out. 

And at the end of the day, how could men save the world when they are not even able to clean their own shit? How?

Men pollute the ground by burying all sorts of domestic and industrial trash ranging from organic and non-organic materials and substances to petrochemicals and nuclear waste... Men also pollute the water with the same trash dumped into the oceans, seas, rivers, lakes, etc... by millions of tons yearly... and men pollute the air with all sorts of nocive smoke, gas, spray, chemicals and other emissions... resulting in an ever-increasing hazy, blurry, thick, hard-to-breath, yellowish-brownish veil of pollution in the air hovering above most countries nowadays... and men have already started to pollute space with expired satellites, bits and pieces of rockets, spacecraft debris and other space junk... (sigh)...

But what men do best is to pollute and soil their own immediate environment, starting by one of the places they go the most often to on a daily basis: the toilet!   

How many times it happened you walked into a filthy public toilet where someone did not flush, peed on the floor and/or has left some floaties in the toilet's bowl and/or some yellowish drops (if not brown pellets) on the toilet's seat often leading to a puddle of piss in front of the toilet? Nearly every time, right? Or at least it feels like this. 

So, guys (men mostly... you know who you are...), get it once and for all in your tiny brain: your behavior, attitude, and hygiene in the toilet is atrocious, and more importantly 


Not your mum, not your sister, not your wife, nor your maid or anybody else should clean your mess. YOU and only YOU should clean it. A bathroom, toilet, lavatory, WC (water closet) or whatever other urban names you call it, is only as clean as you left it. 

And don't tell yourself either that "some people are paid for that" or "I don't care, someone else will clean it", as it is respectively not true and unbearably egoistic. 

People cleaning the toilets are not here to clean your shit but to clean a lavatory that is supposed to be dirty to a certain extent, ok, but not because of your leftover piss or shit. 

Personally, I think that if you conduct yourself like this in public, you probably do that at home too, but don't worry, your reputation precedes you (people around you know who you are and talk). And if you don't do it at home, so why doing it in public so then? But you probably don't care... 

So I prepared this little list below for you, yes, YOU... You know who you are and will recognize yourself. No point to hide or try to leave like nothing happened, we know and you know who you are and you know what you did.

Whether at home, at work or anywhere else, Toilets are public places used by at least 2 and often way much more people. So, keep it clean and be considerate to others, by not leaving what you might think was "impressive" for others to see. Moreover, no one wants to smell your stench or see your leftover.  

Statistically, people, in general, go to the bathroom/toilet on average between 10-14 times a day, divided into (at the least):
  • 4-6 times at home, usually morning and evening/night  (1 of them including a number 2, per day for some or every other day for others) 
  • 6-8 times at work or other places (1 of them including a number 2, per day for some or every other day for others, when not done at home in the morning or at night)  

Toilet Daily Average Frequency per person ©LeDomduVin 2018

Which, as you can see in the table above, represents between 3276 and 5096 times per year going to the toilet (including both pee and poo), basically between 63 and 98 times a week. 

And the average time spent "in" (or "on" depending on how you see it)  the toilet is between

  • 3-5 minutes for number 1 (on average, some of you might be faster or longer) 
  • 15 to up to 45 minutes for number 2 (here again, it is on average, some of you might be faster or longer)
Toilet Daily Average Time per person ©LeDomduVin 2018

Which, as you can see in the table above, represents for a person going to pee 8 times and poo 1 time per day,  a minimum of 39 minutes/day spent going to the loo, or basically a minimum of 14,196 minutes a year (or roughly 236 hours/year or basically 10 days/year), or 273 minutes a week (or 4 hours 33 minutes/week) visiting the throne.

That's a lot of times and time spent in the toilet, so please keep it clean and be clean, and, once again, if you missed, clean it!!!

These figures do not necessarily include people with serious handicaps for who it might be more difficult and may need more (or less) times and time. However, they give you a rough idea of how many times and how much time on average a person goes and spent in the toilet urinating and/or defecating.

The average time spent on the toilet vary greatly depending on what you have in your hands...

So, for all that time spent on the public crapper, you should at least be considerate to others, make it your own and clean it from all your unwanted leaks and faeces leftover. You clearly have an unfinished business to take care of.

Here is the list again, just as a reminder...

The Ultimate Toilet's Signs and Rules (for men mostly...) by ©LeDomduVin 2018 (Full)

Personally, I'm cleaned and I have always been (I probably get that from my mother who is very cleaned too). Did I sometimes miss the toilet bowl on the number 1 (or even 2)? Sure, like anybody else, it happens, but I made sure to clean it properly every time. First, because of I considerate that it is not the job of others to do so; but more importantly because I do not want others to say something, comment or judge me for what I did not do. As previously stated above, your reputation precedes you and people know and talk. And even if it was not you, people assume and blame easily.


Of course, in some case scenarios, it is difficult when the toilet is really dirty and disgusting as someone dropped a massive bomb and you're likely stepping in a pungent puddle left, not only, by the previous persons, but also by a bunch of other dirty pigs who also contributed to the layers of excrements, pee droplets, and other unidentified defecations found all around the latrine.

Sometimes, I even wonder how some people do it? There is some everywhere inside and outside, on the seat, on the floor and even on the surrounding walls....?!? ...they must have been a few to do it together, not possible otherwise... ...unless, it was someone with a serious handicap or an even more serious digestive problem... which makes me also wonder in which states their clothes must have been...

I mean, let's take a few examples...

So, unless you have a crossed-eyes condition, a serious handicap, a disease like Parkinson or urination anxiety that makes you jittery and shaky, as a grown-ass adult, stop peeing all over public toilet seats! And, please, clean your mess, for goodness sake.

I think I just became a bathroom blogger.....

Sorry for this rant, but I had to vent it out... now that it is done, I feel much better, even if I know that the dirty pigs and other culprits with bad bathroom behaviors will not change and will continue with their bad habits... (pissing and shitting everywhere, not flushing, not washing their hands, spitting, stinking the zone, redecorating the throne, etc....) ...but, at least, I got it out of my chest...

And let's be honest, we all live and work in and go to places where we constantly see disgusting things done in the toilet, left unflushed and uncleaned by strangers, colleagues, bosses, friends sometimes and even family members, for whoever is passing after them, and that's not only disgusting but also disrespectful and really disturbing.   

So I'm asking you the question again: 

How could men save the world when they are not even able to clean their own shit? How?

When men will start cleaning their own shit, obviously, but the way I see it, I doubt it will happen soon enough...

That's all folks! for today... and remember to keep the toilet clean, flush properly and wash your hands after doing so.

Thank you.
