MEN, MIND YOUR MANNERS: RESTROOM ETIQUETTES
If you have been splashing around and wasting paper towels, it’s time you fixed your manners
Guys, wearing designer clothes doesn’t make you cultured enough. To say that you have truly arrived, you need to begin with basics. And washroom etiquettes must occupy a prime space on that list. If you don’t know where to begin, here’s our guide to washroom manners. Follow these unspoken rules that can make the experience of going to the washroom, a pleasant one.
Announce your presence
If you are using the stall and have the place for yourself, then go ahead, take your time, enjoy. However, if you hear the door open, then you need to make your presence known. Just a little cough would do to notify the other person. You don’t have to say hi or hello, just a little whiff would do.
Art of urinal selection
Guys, if you have a choice, never ever select a urinal opposite to the one already in use. Look at it this way: if there are three vacant urinals then go right or left. Leave the middle one for someone who is in a dire need. Why do this? Because obviously you don’t want to rub your shoulders with someone, you don’t want to feel cramped.
Silent mode on
When you walk in to the loo, don’t be that guy who starts a conversation and says, “Boy it smells nice here doesn’t it?” When you are in the loo, switch on your silent mode and do your thing. Don’t ever peek at the other guy. Value the space and privacy of the other person. The only place your eyes should go is the mirror.
Say no to trinkling around
You consider yourself civilized? Then don’t sprinkle and trinkle all over the place, Learn to aim, remember that you have to flush and clean the toilet seat if necessary. Don’t forget to wash your hands and throw the paper towels and toilet paper in the trash and not flush it down.
Some guys don’t get the concept of washroom, they keep lingering. Get in the loo, do your thing and get out. Washroom isn’t the place to stop and smell the roses.
