The Nonsensical Bathroom Nesting Phenomenon
For years, maybe even decades, I have been aware that there are people out there who won’t sit on a public john. Heck, there are even people out there who won’t use one at all…you know who you are. I get it. Sometimes they are gross. Maybe a little pee on the seat, maybe no toilet paper, maybe a day old deuce floating around. Here’s what I DON’T get. The “nesters”. Now it’s not the concept of the nesting that I don’t understand, it’s the aftermath of said action. Now if I had to guess, I’d say nesters nest because they don’t want their bum touching something that someone else’s bum has already touched. Ok, so far I follow. Where I get lost is why they leave the nest on the seat when they’re through. It’s like they’re saying “Your ass is dirty and I don’t want my bare butt touching a seat it touched, but my ass…well my ass is amazing, oh, and also I’m super lazy, so please, feel free to use my pre-made nest. Just make sure that you dispose of it when you’re through because if you don’t I’m not going to use that stall and I’m going to monopolize a whole nother stall with my nesting skills”.
Let it be known that this post is not based off a real experience I’ve had, it IS an experience I’ve had…2 times in a week…in the same building! Come on people! Get it together!
