Stef17: so interesting message thread - some of the responses make me laugh, and I am amazed at the comfort and trust that people have to share such personal stories! I agree with the bad bathroom etiquette. How hard is it to flush, if ya drop it pick it up etc. Sometimes feel like savages walk the face of the earth still! My requirement on road trips is to only go to bathrooms that are "safe" . My definition of safe mostly is clean, clean, clean, clean. One time we were with a large group of people who when to MickyD's in Puerto Rico. The bathroom sinks were non-functioning, bathroom had clogged toilets, horrendous smell etc. I wrote the corporate offices state side I was so appalled. How could the employees wash hands much less visitors . . . .Needless to say the corporate office called the PR office and the big cheese from there called me saying essentially "it aint so". Am going back in January -am going to try and make a point to go back to said facility with camera in tow and do my own inspection!
