But my friend Natalia does.
At coffee last week at the Unicorn Café, she remarked that this would be a good topic to write about on the blog, provided I could find someone who didn’t care about using those disposable toilet seat covers made of paper in public restrooms.
I didn’t have to look far. Because, well, I don’t care.
This might sound absolutely repulsive to most people, and it might not make a lot of sense considering that just a few posts ago, I talked about how I do care, quite a bit, about washing my hands.
But I think it’s a convenience thing. Those paper toilet seat covers are just so flimsy and unwieldy, and I can never get them positioned perfectly on the toilet seat even though they’re designed to do so.
Frankly these covers just prevent me from doing my business in an expedient fashion. And at the risk of getting too graphic, why not just quickly wipe down the area, or hover while you’re making use of the public toilets? It’s really that simple.
And really, do they do that much to protect you? I mean, they’re made of paper. Last I checked, paper ain’t waterproof.
Where do you fall on this issue? Toilet seat covers or no? Are you too grossed out to comment?
