I encountered one more soap dispenser today but there was another man at the sinks at the same time I was and men’s bathroom etiquette is opaque to me in a lot of ways still, but I’m p sure if I pulled out my phone to take a picture I would be Making It Weird.
I did it, I finally found another example in the wild of the soap dispenser that prompted this thread in the first place!
I have MANY questions. The branding. The “flavor” (??) choice. Even the color tbh. I can’t show you in a photo but it smells almost exactly like that raspberry body mist B&BW sells that all my friends who stripped in college used because they said it made men tip more.
@microwavenby I’ve developed a very specific “dude REALLY??” cough and facial expression to shame cis men into taking the TWENTY EXTRA SECONDS to wash their hands. It only sometimes works, but. Sometimes!
@courtney i had been polishing my scathing looks my whole life and never got a result in that context.. Frankly i never wanted to be in that set of loos in the first place though; it probably detracted a bit 😅
@courtney Dumb question but why does it need to be touchless? You're loterally rouching it to put soap on your hands so you can wash them?? Like if they're literally about to be washed why does touching it matter?? It's not like a tap you have to touch after washing...
@certifiedperson a good and reasonable question! My speculative guess is that the soap in these dispensers only kills so much, and since I’m often in hospital or care facility settings, the odds of encountering something that basic soap and water won’t destroy is higher.
