We are sick, disgusting individuals. About 95% of people claim they wash their hands after taking a piss or poopy, but as you can imagine, the actual percentage of people who actually do so is far less.

A new public health study tracked the bathroom doings of over 200,000 individuals and the results were staggering. Only 64% of females washed their hands while only 32% of men washed theirs. This is one time that I’m actually embarrassed to be male.

  1. I know, I’m working in engineering and software (so you expect some neatness) and if you use the toilet you hear people leave straight from toilet seat to the door. I’m still baffeled as how few actually make the faucet run. If anyone uses my system then all computer gear is sticky. At one time we even got an email to respect toilet hygiene and not to put used cups in the cup holder of the coffee machine. Not that anyone cares.

  2. This is why I always keep hand sanitizer in my purse and use it often- especially in public and at work.
