Check for toilet paper before you sit down

This, plus watch out for fluids on the seat and floor

If possible, make sure that there is at least one toilet stall between you and the next person ;)

I always flush unnecessarily when I hear people on their cell phones in public restrooms.

Wide stance...

If either of two people in a public restroom wants to pretend that the other person is not there, the other person is obliged to join that pretense, except insofar as it inconveniences that other person more than a small amount, and except insofar as the first person appears to be in either a small amount of distress which the other person can alleviate ("oh, here, I have a band aid / wet wipe / tissue") or a large amount of distress unignorable by the other person ("oh, honey, it'll be ok"; "stay in here, I'm calling the cops")

*unless, of course, the paramedics are there already, and the person and the general vicinity is covered in blood, then it is perfectly ok to pretend the other person is not there and nothing unusual is happening.....
(which is what I encountered at a public restroom recently, not as the person covered in blood.)

If you can't bring yourself to sit on the seat, you'd better wipe up after yourself. If you can't bring yourself to wipe up, sit on the damn seat so you don't get fluids every-damn-where.

YES, this.

Yes yes a thousand times yes! Or, if you're not going to sit on it, lift it like a guy. I don't even care if you put it back down, as long as you don't pee on it! Some of us are too short to hover without sitting.

To quote Dr. Cox, "Eyes front, no talking."

Don't pee on people.

The first rule of public restrooms is do not talk in public restrooms.

Seriously...no one should be striking up conversations at the urinal or anywhere else in there.
