YES: A Foot-Operated Bathroom Door Handle

April 6, 2011

I hate public restrooms. Most guys in stalls don't even bother trying to muffle their farts EVEN WHEN THEY KNOW THEY'RE NOT ALONE. Plus they smell. Plus there's piss all over the floor. Plus dudes get all freaked out if you try to make eye contact and small-talk at a urinal (especially if you're not peeing). Long story short: I'd rather shit my pants than use a public toilet (and I do -- on the reg).

Enter the Toepener Bathroom Door Handle. It won't solve any of the problems I just mentioned, but you will leave the bathroom with only your own penis-germs on your hands (don't act like you wash!). Unfortunately, it only works on doors with no latch, because it's not a functional handle -- just a hook. $50 hooks. Me? I only go to the men's room to wash my hands, and when I'm finished I grab the handle with the same paper towels I just used to dry, then throw them in the trashcan once I've got the door opened wide enough. Or, if there's no trashcan nearby, I throw them on the floor. I'm sure janitors understand my plight.

Thanks to Lindsey, who's never seen the inside of a men's room before and doesn't want to start now. Smart girl.
