I hate using public bathrooms so much that I would hold it in until I get home.

What is the worst thing about using public bathrooms?

what truly scares me is the dirty level, could be why I have visited boys bathrooms in the past, if I can't stomach the girls I'm not going to use it. but I guess for "safety" purposes, having a locked door is always a bonus.

Girl's bathroom can get pretty nasty, but I feel like men's get even worse haha. I wish girls would be more sanitary about throwing away their products because sometimes people are really lazy nasty. And guys just plain out miss xD

I have selected the fourth option, though each of the listed answers is a concern to me. I have encountered a moment where I have seen feces on a toilet seat and the bathroom stall door as a young child, to seeing clogged toilets overflowing at school.

These experiences has me hesitant to not use a public accessed toilet if the situation is not an emergency.

Public bathrooms where I am usually aren’t that bad.
No TP with nobody else in the bathroom & getting stuck would probably be my fear.

All of the above, though the last two, thankfully, have never happened to me.

One thing that scares me is a lack of paper towels - that are important for drying hands, but also important for grabbing the filthy door handle to get yourself out!

I voted for the third option amongst the given ones, but if I had to remove a freely selected feature of bathroom, I would remove the necessity of waiting on queues.

Being in an eerily quiet one with rather still air for a short while, giving you the impression you're alone, when suddenly a toilet flushes loudly.

all the above tho the last one has never happened to me .

i dont go to a public restroom unless i really need to . i am bit of a germ freak and public bathrooms are one of the places i try my best to avoid if i can. i always have a a napkin or tissue just in case so i can grab the door handle/ turn of the faucets if need be .

some things that i watch out for.

Hidden Cameras in stalls ( watch news about this and read blogs about stuff like this in girls bathrooms) can never be to careful.

toilet water pressure those things spray everywhere i literally flush with my foot and run.


Toilet seat they look clean but there not toilet water gets on that / plus when they look dirty also disgusting.


Weird girls checking u out from the top of the bathroom stall (had this happen to me before) i was fully clothed still, good thing i noticed my spider senses tingling.

None of the above. When people piss all over the seat and you have to clean it up, because if someone see your come out and there is piss on the seat, they'll think you did it... I have image issues.

[edit]
Also people who don't use the toilet brush to get rid shit stains.
