At work today, I just got a coffee and had to hit the head before I got back to my desk. I was walking towards the bathroom with my coffee mug, full, and a co-worker goes "Ewwwww, you're taking your coffee into the bathroom??".

Huh, I thought.

Poll time

Poll
Is it gross/disgusting to take your coffee mug into the bathroom?
Yes, my god, yes. The germs, THE GERMS!
No, I brush my teeth in the bathroom, what is the problem.
I don't drink coffee

I don't drink coffee, but it's also no problem to me to set a beverage on the vanity while I'm in the bathroom, so I picked "what is the problem."

At home it really does not matter at all to me. When I am out in public or at work I make sure my drink has a lid on it if I am taking it into the bathroom with me. No clue if that actually helps protect me from stranger germs, but it makes me feel better about it.

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

Setting a cup on the vanity in your home bathroom and on a sink or shelf in a public bathroom is a bit "apples and oranges"...unless you have a REALLY big family and poor housekeeping skills.

If it makes you feel better, if there are any shit particles that you're afraid would get in a drink, you're already breathing them in.

Inspired by Chit Chat, I've taught myself to drink coffee with one hand, text with the other and pee no-handed. Important: if you are prone to spill, drink iced coffee.

I think its about how public the bathroom is. If I know its treated as clean as my own bathroom I wouldn't bat an eye. But I know better.
and theres a saying you dont sh*t where you eat and its become a common courtesy norm to take that to heart

Were there a couple of 'Females' "involved" for that? WTH is with THEM 'cramming' a bunch of themselves into a HOME-'bathroom' all at once, for utilizing this? E-V-E-R-Y 'party' of mine held is when THAT would occur. shake

Years ago, a friend had a fiance who would complain that I left the seat up. So I started putting the whole thing down so she had to raise it too.

He didn't marry her.

At work I leave my coffee (and notepad, etc.) on a windowsill outside of the bathroom. Sometimes I forget to grab it again, but I never take that stuff in with me.

There is absolutely no way I would take food or drink into the bathroom at home. The thought of doing it in a public toilet makes me feel queasy.

I don't bring my coffee into the bathroom.

I don't pee in the coffee room.

Helps build immunity. As said before - we're breathing it in. Everywhere. Dust is mostly the crap of dust mites. So, stop fighting it. Embrace the poo!
