Wash Your Hands or Stay Locked In

I’ve brought up the topic of hand washing twice already. I find that people who don’t wash their hands (usually men) tend to disgust me. But my wife came up with a great solution. It costs money, but I think it’d work.

The first step is to reconfigure the bathroom altogether. Each stall gets larger and gets its own sink. But the trick is this: once you’re locked in, you can’t get out unless you wash your hands – thus, once the faucet and soap dispensers have been used, you can get out.

Naturally there’d still be a sink or two without a stall, but I’d also like urinals to get their own sinks. Why? Because that’s where the biggest problem is. You dirty, dirty people.
