Wink No, not time. Just plenty of excuses for procrastination.

It also sounds like the people at your school are exceptionally disgusting. Frankly, the main campus for the local community collge here has some of the cleanest bathrooms I've ever been in.

Reminds me. Earlier this week I was in the bathroom at my school washing my hands, and this guy standing next to me tending to a cut on his face said, quote, "Since I been in here, five guys came & went. You're the first one who washed his hands." We both pretty much agreed it was sick.

To be fair though, there are some places which are too lazy or too cheap to stock up on tp and soap, and when you really gotta go, you don't find out about it until it's too late.

I've never found too much of a problem with restrooms not stocking TP and soap. Even with soap, it can't be more than a 20 second process to wash your hands vigorously with just running water.

Maybe it's because I live sandwiched between two frats, in a hallway full of gamers, but the hygiene around here is dispicable.

Unfortunately I've been around both more than I'd like to count... the thing about gamer funk and dorm rooms is that it's always present... at least at cons, the hotel staff get a chance to clean up later. Smile

I can't really say convention funk is worse either because when you've got gamer funk, they are sitting in one area for a long period of time. With con funk, they are moving around enough for it to at least dissapate into the air. Smile

Ah, but have you been down to the game room on the last day of a con, after all the fanboys have been down there playing DDR?

ew. yes. At Anime Boston, which was not half bad as far as hygiene and trying to get to the game room on Friday night...and seeing some friends coming out of there yelling at me not to go in there due to the lovely gaming odor. You could just smell the sweat on the stairways Sad

Thanks for pointing out the necessity for people to wash their hands. Next week could you do one about people needing to flush the toilet? At my university there is a huge problem with people not flushing and then not washing their hands. It's incredibly gross.

Very Happy That's why it was part of the Bathroom Dance. There is definitely a problem with people not bothering to push the damned lever, and then walking out without bothering to wash their hands. It takes a degree of forced sanity for me to even touch the doorknobs. We won't even go into the problem of people (women, especially) leaving urine on the toilet seats.
