Giving up on hygiene at portable bathrooms


On Sunday morning, I walked past an area where they were setting up for some inane public event. Off to the side, I counted 14 portable bathroom units (“Port-a-Potty” or whatever they’re called), but only one hand washing station. Even if the hand washer can serve four people at once, the implication of those numbers is pretty scary. Apparently, the people who allocate these resources are thinking in terms of reality, rather than aspiration. It would be nice if everyone washed their hands, but a lot of people simply don’t bother.
