to think that hovering in public toilets does not necessarily mean you wee on the seat?

(Hovering in the toilets, as in loitering in a toilet block, coz that is weird,) or hovering over the toilet whilst using one? If it is the latter then no does not mean you wee on the seat.

Hovering doesn't mean getting it on the seat, I always thought that's what the wet on public loo seats was until I noticed a lot of them spray water around when they flush.

Thank you both. I am being picked on on another thread so I thoght I would do the mature thing and start a new thread to drum up some support grin

(In case I am about to get told off, this thread is not entirely serious)

Doesn't necessarily mean you wee on the seat. But it shows a certain paranoia which is not attractive.

StealthPolarBear Sat 16-Jul-11 17:12:09

When I am weeing, appearing attractive to you is least of my worries grin

AgentZigzag Sat 16-Jul-11 17:12:22

I've just had a look at the thread, ooo you were WRONGED shock

Are you alright stealth?

Are you sure??

hehe grin

I just put bog roll down before I sit (s.i.t., no h), it's the pits when you're half way through and you get jelly legs from hovering grin

StealthPolarBear Sat 16-Jul-11 17:13:05

anyway, what paranoia? Seats are generally unpleasant and I don't want to come into contact with them. I don't want a damp bum, especially when that dampness is someone else's urine

And the first person to tell me it is sterile will get a cup of wee-tea

Of course it doesn't. I hover over public loos and don't wee on the seat. And even if I did, I would wipe it off again.

I think it must be the flush that gets the seat wet. <nods wisely>

So, YANBU.

"I think it must be the flush that gets the seat wet. <nods wisely>"
Not convinced - I don't have this problem at work (where I do sit) or at home

pointydog Sat 16-Jul-11 17:19:54

unattractive as a character trait, stealth, not as a mental image grin

pointydog Sat 16-Jul-11 17:20:45

I don't think seats are generally unpleasant. You paranoidnic.

StealthPolarBear Sat 16-Jul-11 17:21:30

Oh no - it was nice to have an admirer

alewVera Sat 16-Jul-11 17:23:28

Eeew I don't like public toilet seats either, and don't sit on them.

lawnimp Sat 16-Jul-11 17:24:14

so some posters who hover do own up to sometimes getting it on the seat, normal sitting makes wee go straight in the loo and not anywhere near to seat, so hoverers protect them selves but expect others to sit on their wee (even if it's wiped off you can't completely get all the germs out can you)

angry

feelforcedout Sat 16-Jul-11 17:27:54

I hover - i am a precission hoverer, i dont like cold seats and even hover a lot at home in fact i can almost stand up <proud i am> grin

pointydog Sat 16-Jul-11 17:31:03

Wiping doesn't get rid of all wee germs? Just what sort of terrible germs should we be afraid of?

HalfTermHero Sat 16-Jul-11 17:31:15

I hover and tbh, yeah we'd dies sometimes spray a bit on the seat. I always clean it up though. I am tall though and that might make hovering harder. Short legs might make aim easier grin.

lawnimp Sat 16-Jul-11 17:33:00

well nothing terrible probably, but still other people's wee or remnants of it

and if it really is nothing terrible then why hover in the first place?

thanksamillion Sat 16-Jul-11 17:33:23

I would LOVE the opportunity to sit on a public loo - most of the ones round here are hole in the ground, squatty jobbies. But it gets worse because they're generally communal - ie no cubicles, if you're lucky a small partition (think chest height, extending maybe 50cms from the wall) shock. And there's generally wee and poo all over the floor <boak>.

LyingWitchInTheWardrobe Sat 16-Jul-11 17:34:41

Don't you wipe the seat before you sit on it anyway when you're in a public loo? You wouldn't have a wet bum then at all.... not unless you were at services and were having a little wriggle about and accidentally leaned back too far, activating the automatic flush... blush

GwendolineMaryLacey Sat 16-Jul-11 17:36:37

Oh ffs just sit on the bloody things! I do not understand this. The only bit of your bum that touches the seat is your cheeks. I wasn't aware that many germs were carried on your bumcheeks.

oldraver Sat 16-Jul-11 17:39:23

Dont know about being picked on... I thought I was teasing grin.

Besides its not good for you hovering

oldraver Sat 16-Jul-11 17:42:31

I really should read ALL of thread before replying

anyway, what paranoia? Seats are generally unpleasant and I don't want to come into contact with them. I don't want a damp bum, especially when that dampness is someone else's urine

Isnt that like, you know, <whispers> contradictionary
