Germa­phobe keen to stow her hand­bag while on the throne

The China Post - - TV & COMICS -

DEAR AN­NIE: With your abil­ity to reach many peo­ple, how about a plea to have hooks put in all public re­strooms? I’m sure other women also hate to put their purses on the bath­room floor in th­ese public places.

— Germs, Yuck

Dear Germs: We sus­pect most women would rather put their purse on their head than drop it on the floor of a public re­stroom. If there is no hook, try rest­ing the purse strap over the door latch. If that doesn’t work, there may be space on the toi­let pa­per dis­penser. You also could place your purse on your lap (awk­ward, but doable), or get a purse with a shoul­der strap and don’t take it off at all. And you might look into pur­chas­ing a lit­tle plas­tic hook that will slip over a door and hold a purse, of­ten avail­able at drug­stores or hard­ware stores. ( But do be care­ful if you hang this over the door, as some­one can lift it from the out­side.) As al­ways, if there is a manager with whom to reg­is­ter a com­plaint, do so.
