    The vacuum toilets like the ones in Walmarts might alleviate that.

    A couple of things; First, the kid who drops his pants? Why not teach him to relieve himself while sitting? I never met a woman who really enjoyed cleaning the floor around a commode where men had splashed urine.

    Second, in public rest rooms, pull off enough TP to dry your hands, and a second bit to use opening the door as you leave. Otherwise, take napkins from the counter in as you go---no point in washing your hands and then handling a filthy door knob. I see some people who are meticulously clean, but many are just filthy slobs.

    I have seen hospitals in OK where paper towels were provided, and the bit about washing hands, using paper to open door was posted on the wall as instruction.

    we have the hand dryers here but we also have a paper dispenser which is what I use and what I see many use and a little bit like Chuck said for opening the door. ~Georgia

    Commodes are for setting and urinals for standing :)

    This is at a commode, and he was potty trained by sitting, but if anyone that has ever had, known, or been around a 4 year old boy for any length of time know they want to be like the big boys and pee standing up. His aim isn't bad if you don't distract him, lesson learned, it's the taking off his pants and underwear that I find amusing.

    Over the years I've had the honor of cleaning public restrooms. Men may miss the target occasionally but I swear women must just back into the stall door and spray!

    It is called hovering. So you don’t touch the seat.

    I just call it inexcusably disgusting.

    I don't know about the mens washrooms but some of the womens washrooms are filthy. it's not the cleaners either. I've seen it first thing in the morning and they are spotless. I rarely go in because when I'm shopping I am only ever 15 min from the house in either direction and most of the time I can go all day anyway but for emergencies I carry a couple of those paper seat covers in my bag. ~Georgia

    I have a 4 year old grandson, and while he doesn't take his pants off to pee, he shoves them to his feet. You don't dare talk to him either, apparently his neck locks when he's peeing.
    He's also likely to pee anywhere outside, regardless of where he is or who's around. When ya gotta go, ya gotta go.
