Aloha Friday: Do You Hover?

My Question:

Do you sit on public toilets?

No. I hoist? Is that the word? no. ok. I hover :) And I use paper to touch anything and everything! When the kids are in there, I ensure to sing-song 'don't touch' and get them out as quickly as possible!

  1. I think I'd call it "hovering" instead of "hoisting!" LOL! I don't hover, however, even though I probably should. I only use public toilets if I'm in dire need or if the bathroom looks and smells super clean.

  2. Absolutely not. Ewwwwww!

  3. Only if I clean them first and then use the seat covers. Otherwise i do not use them!

  4. Nope I sure don't. I really prefer not to even use public restrooms.

  5. I'm not obsesive about germs in general, but public tiolets are pretty, well, disgusting.

  6. Ok, not sure what I just did so you might have received this already.

    I hate public bathrooms and will hold it in for as long as possible. If I know I am going to be out for a long time, I drink very little just to avoid stepping foot into one.

  7. haha. i hate using them at all. Meanwhile, my 4 yr. old wants to "try" every toilet in town. Ugh. So, if you hear me cursing in public, it's probably me freaking out on my dd touching everything in the public bathrm!! I really love your new look on the site:)

  8. LOL. Funny question. My sister-in-law, a nurse, once told me that there is no point in hovering over the toilet seat in a public restroom because there are more germs on the handle of the stall door, the sink faucets, the paper towel dispenser and the door handle than you can imagine. Since then...I've quit hovering and carry antibacterial gel in my purse...I'm now more afraid of the sink than the potty! LOL. Weird, I know.

  9. Antoinette I've read that too, but I just can't help it. And I've been in restrooms where I was worried for my own shoes and scorned my shoes the whole time until I could spray bleach on the bottom.

    Heather, Thank you and I will keep that in mind teehee. I try to get the kids to use the bathroom at home before we leave etc, but it's hard for thm to keep it in long as we adults can.

    Nina! I'm the same way. I don't drink so I wont have to go into one if I can help it!

  10. I definitely do not sit down. I have seen others do it and it really grosses me out!

  11. LOL It depends on the cleanliness of the bathroom. If I can tell the establishment cleans the Bathroom very regularly I sit. But if it is questionable I will hover too :)

  12. I use the seat cover AND toilet paper on top the seat cover. Never can be too sure, lol. I have to go purell now, lol

  13. I hate public restrooms, but saying that..
    I will use them...
    I just clean the seat really well...
    and then hover!

    LOL, I am always scared I will fall on it or something, so it has to be cleaned!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  14. my comment appears to have disappeared. Anyhoo, I'm one of those old lady types who uses the seat covers whenever they are provided

  15. IF I have to use them (it's usually the kids actually) I ALWAYS put the seat protector down, and some tp on the seat too. ALWAYS tell them hands on knees and wash extra good with soap. Thankfully my boys can stand to go, so I don't worry as much with them. HATE when we have to use them though! ICK!

  16. OOoooooh! Good one! I hover! AND I still put down a paper seat cover! Silly, huh? LOL!

  17. I have the single smallest bladder in the, seriously, so public bathrooms are a part of life for me unfortunately. A few years ago I had an extremely unfortunate incident with hovering and...well let's just say I looked like I'd left my pants on while going...TMI I know lol but since then I clean the seat and load up the TP, environment be damned, my butt comes first LOL
