    That's why the sign Now Wash Your Hands is pointless :doff:

    And then with clean hands, they make you pull a filthy old handle that is never cleaned in order to get out because the door always opens in. Unless you loiter waiting for someone else to open the door first... and then you just look weird.
    I was impressed on the latest cruise, as you pull the handle to open, it deposits antibacterial gel onto your hand, that you subconsciously automatically wipe against the other.

    Thats what little fingers were designed for. Always open a door with the pinky as its the least used.

    Worst case of non washing of hands I've seen was in a local Bangladeshi (don't kid yourself, they are not Indian) curry house. I was having a slash when the trap door opened and a guy walks out and just exits the toilet.
    The guy was a chef there :spew:

    After I'd remonstrated my utter disgust with the manager and several waiters, apparently my custom was no longer desired.

    @RonyT The dirty bastid :censored:

    There was some graffiti in a loo I saw years ago.

    Please wash hands carefully.
    You don’t know where the soap has been!

    This is Gods honest truth, and kind of fits the thread.
    In my yoot, I was invited to a Pub in East London where the pool tables doubled up as a strip stage. :shocked:
    It was a REALLY grubby pub with ladies walking around with pint pots where you deposit £1 in.
    I was only 24 at the time and the most shocking thing was the bogs.
    There was a sign saying, and I CH17 you not, "Absolutely no vvanking allowed in the toilets".

    :lol:

    Had to open up by edit as the last vital sentence was missing. So I will add... re said banking .....
    Where did they require one so to do ?

    The old adage... more than 3 shakes is masturbation.

    Funny how predictive text drew a blank there!

    Last decorator left this note on tin, would have been more helpful if he cleaned all the dried up paint off the can that's just landed in the opened tin. Could have guessed it was half full when I picked the fekin thing up .

    Found this one in the Gents in a lovely pub near Herne (by Herne Bay).

    If not your hands, what else would people wash in the sink? Can honestly say that I’ve never been in a pub bog and thought, you know what, I’ll think I’ll give me balls a quick wash.

    Actually, while I’m on it, what idiot passed this pigeon English off ?

    Surely it should read, This sink is for hand washing only ??
    Or am I being too pedantic :blush:

    It’s not very clear in its advice.
    It should just say “This is not suitable drinking water!”

    The main reason it is there is because the boiler has broke for providing hot water for hand washing, so they have bypassed the hot feed straight to the urinals. So you are just washing your hands in the warm pee you have just passed.

    Exit signs are pointless there on the way out,

    Not quite pointless, but it did make me do a double take and had to stop to take a pic

    They've just built a Costa coffee drive through at the end of my estate.

    Not so much a pointless sign as a suggestive one
