I realize since the H1N1 virus, people are more conscious of germs and getting them, however, there is a balance to this in my opinion. You wash your hands, you take a paper towel from the dispenser and instead of immediately throwing it into the garbage can, you open the bathroom door with the same paper towel. Then you throw it INTO the garbage can. NOT on TOP of the swinging doors into the can, you actually push down on the swinging doors and the towel goes DOWN INTO the can. This then alleviates the problem of a gazillion paper towles laying on top of the swinging doors that someone other than the original user has to push down on! How OCD & selfish can we be people???!!!!
