Polite Police on Patrol - The Ladies Room!
Are you slightly creeped out by public restrooms? You don't have to be a full-fledged germophobe (think Mr. Monk and his ubiquitous wipes . . .) to avoid touching things in the ladies room. So, if you've already touched the yucky door handle, why not hold the door open for the next person? (Admit it - you love it when that happens to you.) Or if the paper towel dispenser requires you to pull a wet lever to get a new towel, why not go the extra step and leave a new towel for the next person? Much has been said about restroom etiquette -particularly the workplace restroom. However, I'm not dealing with any of those issues here - just the thought that a tiny bit of effort can brighten the day of someone else and the ladies room is just the place to start . . .
