chewing gum in the bathroom

Whenever I go to the washroom, I have to first spit out my gum. You know how when you smell something it’s because there are microscopic particles of that smell floating in the air that enter your nose and mouth? Well, if those particles are entering my mouth, I don’t want my gum to become a resevoir of human waste, so i always spit my gum out first. Does anybody else do this too?

i had an ex-boyfriend who had that same theory. he insisted on closing the toilet seat cover before flushing so as not to “contaminate” his toothbrush.

don’t base your personal hygiene habits on my ex’s. he was strange in many ways.

My condo is on the market right now and my real estate agent always raises the toilet seat before showing the unit. Maybe all that bad chi is preventing someone from making an offer. I directed a play once that involved someone going into the bathroom. She had been eating cookies and took a cookie into the bathroom with her during rehearsal! She definitely got a director’s note on that one! “Don’t take food into the bathroom!” I’m not a freak about closing the lid, but I do lower it at home more often than not. As far as sanitation goes, isn’t it curious that public toilets don’t have solid lids?

no one wants to touch a public toilet lid, or any other part of a public toilet.

do you spit you gum into the toilet or do you throw it in the garbage? i throw my gum out when i go to the bathroom too, but i never thought about it getting contaminated, it just seemed like a good time to get rid of it….
