Washing your hands then having to take a piss then washing your hands again.

I'm not saying you block anyone, but fvcking pull forward and go when the light turns yellow and oncoming traffic stops. I don't understand why people will sit in the left turn lane for an entire light and wait for another cycle of the light when they could go on the yellow light and let the line move up.

Public bathroom paper towel dispensers and blowers except the new Dyson. The only reason businesses choose paper dispensers with the 1500 grit sandpaper is because everyone gives up after one.

When driving in LA I've seen 3 or 4 cars go through on the "yellow". Is quite impressive.

If you need to use them in that retrospect, go for it. But to have them on for absolutely no reason is annoying. Funny thing is, there really is no place for them nowadays. With all of the LED lighting and brighter tail lights, I can't think of a storm/fog being bad enough to where you cannot see taillights in front of you.

In addition, a lot of cars only have rear fogs on the left hand side (so you can judge where they are when you are passing them) so when you have them on as a fashion statement or just to have them on, it makes your car look like a bulb is out on the right hand side.

Paper towels may be more hygienic than air dryers

In NY yellow means 4 more cars and red means 2 more cars.

Taking a dump, washing your hands, then realizing you have to piss seconds before leaving the door. And vis-versa.

When you walk out the door, realize you forgot your ID badge, go get it, go down the elevator, realize you forgot your lunch, go back and get it, and now you're late for work.

Most general things that occur as a result of existing as a human in a world of other humans that are just as much of a dirty animal as you

I hate public restrooms that don't have a paper towel dispenser. Unless you can push the door open, if it is a pull handle, wtf... give me a paper towel to open the door.

Some bathrooms (Nordstroms for example) even put an additional mini trash bin next to the door because they know people open the door with a paper towel and they need somewhere to dispose of it


Common sense people...

All bathrooms should have a maze style exit with no door and paper towels folded up in a basket.

You don't urinate when dropping a deuce (or at least right before)? Is that even possible?
