Why do so many dudes in the tech industry not wash their hands after using the bathroom?

Why do "smart" highly educated men not wash their hands after taking a dump or piss? When I'm in the bathroom and taking a leak or washing my hands I notice most dudes wash their hands but if I'm in the stall its like the majority of dudes just exit without washing.

    WTF!! Gross, where are you working? That is not normal.
    Make some print outs of this and post it over the stalls, so they read it while peeing.

    Africans don’t even have clean water to drink. Save the water resource for them dude! Otherwise don’t talk about human rights!

      If people really care about those living in Africa, they should do useful things to save water resource (aka money) to help build infrastructures in Africa. We do not want people who are claiming that they care about human rights in high and mighty attitude. Talk is cheap.

      You're right, we can't care about two things at once.

      Liberals only care about trivial and hyped up discrimination like LGBT and racism in first world countries.

      It’s not like some of us are actively looking for these things but when you are aware of your surrounding, conscious of hygiene and have observation skills you’ll catch/observe those unhygienic behaviors even without trying - unfortunately.

      Dudes that don't wash their hands like to claim that. You know how dirty door handles are? Also do you expect people who don't even wash their hands to have a clean penis?

      Put a smiley or a photo of a smiling person there. It’s been proven in the healthcare industry that that changes hygienic behavior for the positive.

    It's not just dudes, I noticed a female housemate housemate do the same, she's also in tech.

    I love threads like this, because bathroom handwashes are not even close the most insidious thing to worry about.

    The phone you're touching right now is so filthy and nasty, and every time you use it and touch someone else, you're giving all that nastiness and grime away. 👉📲🤢

    Turn your screen off and shine it under a light. I dare ya. I'll wait ⏳

    Even medical personnel has crazy issues following simple hygiene instructions. And there, it actually matters. Human nature, but there are improvements that can be undertaken as behavioral psychology shows.
