ASK AMY: Reader weighs in on toilet etiquette question
Dear Readers: I recently ran a letter from “Got to Go in L.A.,” asking what I believe is a good question regarding toilet etiquette in public non-gender specific bathrooms.
Got to Go’s question is: After you have used a public toilet, should you leave the seat up – or down?
I promised to conduct an informal poll and to tally the results.
Unfortunately, I didn’t really think this through.
2) If there is just a seat, raise it, simply because there are enough men out there who do not think to raise it if it is down; and a missed approach is highly likely.
3) If you are a dude, consider sitting so as not to splatter, and always wipe the rim with paper before washing your hands and leaving.
4) And women should never use it as a squat toilet. Ever!
For everybody, please just tidy up as a sign of respect for your fellow humans. – Cleaned Up Enough
Dear Cleaned Up: I can only imagine the stories you and your colleagues have stored in your (neatly packed) roller bags.
Thank you for your service.
