Thinkin’ That’s Not Stinkin’

We’ve all been there.

The public washroom where there is no safe place to put your purse or packages.

I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into the cubicle in the washroom at the Strawberry Hill Library.  A big round of applause to whoever was responsible for installing this toilet paper dispenser. The flat top allows it to serve as a psuedo shelf that is big enough to hold a purse.

It doesn’t take a lot of extra effort or cost to make small changes in design that provide huge benefits. That’s thinkin’ that’s not stinkin’!

  1. LOL – I like your sense of your humor :) Yes, it is smart thinking; they could even provide a hook on the wall above the toilet paper holder… that could serve for either a pocket book or packages. I think most places used to provide the hooks on bathroom doors but stopped doing so when thieves would take advantage of people in stalls…

    I would actually like an additional modification – for the stalls to also provide the individual soap dispensers (like in hospitals – the ones that don’t require water) because otherwise one cannot really be 100% sanitary – one is forced to touch your pocketbook and coat etc before one has washed one’s hands outside of the stall. What do you think? Would that idea appeal to you?

    • Dorlee,

      Years ago, I remember watching an episode of Oprah where thieves were doing the very thing you talk about – reaching over and unhooking whatever was suspended. Taking advantage when the person is in a compromised position.

      Now, there’s a thought worth implementing re. the hand sanitizers.
