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.
This is a lot for a hand soap.
@courtney I'd just be grateful the gentleperson was washing their hands at all given the horrors I've seen in there
@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 this is a good thread, but the amount that soap dispensers mystify me _utterly pales_ in comparison to the amount that modern paper towel dispensers and hand driers mystify me.
@hunkychungus did they match the wall to the dispenser, vice versa, or is “very ill white person” just a universally available color? We’ll never know.
