I am just not a "barefoot" person......I don't like to walk around the house on hard, cold floors barefoot. I don't go outside barefoot.....I need my bathroom mats!

I don't know when this anti-barefoot thing started.....'cause I grew up going barefoot as much as possible. And during the summer months, would go barefoot anywhere it was allowed.

Strangely enough, I kickbox barefoot at a nasty gym and don't mind that. But then.....the floor there is made out of rubber mats.

Jay is correct that is exactly what they are for and I told my hubby that when I bought it for the new house. Funny thing is he didn't deny it!!! Funny and gross at the same time and get washed very frequently.

I have been kickboxing for about 14 years andI have never had athlete's foot. It is transmitted where there is lots of constant moisture, like in showers. I guess we sweat on the floor in the kickboxing room, but it dries up quickly. eek There have been a few incidents of staff infections.

I think I'm going to skip the toilet mat.

With the way the bathrooms are set up, I don't see a scenario where I would need to rely on that to walk on barefoot to avoid the cold tile floor. The tub mat and the sink mat should do.

When I was living home at my parents house, there was always a toilet seat cover and mat (I had two sisters). However, once I became a parent of sons, the cover and mat were no more.

I started insisting on a mat in front of the toilet after beginning to cohabitate with a male of the species. It only took one midnight barefoot bathroom excursion (following shortly behind a trip on his part) to learn that lesson. Just say NO to wet toes! eek

Wow. I'm going to print off this thread and take it home to show my wife what a catch I really am.

If I were one of the people putting down a mat as a catch basin for a spouse that can't seem to hit the target I think I'd insist on them using a different bathroom. There has to be something better than a mat to solve that problem.....

Upon confronting him about the wet toes issues, I was rather archly informed that, "No matter how good your aim might be, nobody can control the splash."

It should also probably be noted that there is currently a 2 year old boy in the beginning stages of potty training at our house, too. smirk

It happens in the middle of the night and no amount of talking, asking, threatening or installing a night light has made a difference. I think he is sleep peeing....lol!!! I pick my battles and this one is minor not like he is completely missing the mark as Jay said #oldmendrip, plus I always have clean bathroom mats! I know TMI :-)

The problem is not so much the aim but the pressure change at the start and the finish that cause the problem. I was house broken years ago and only stand when outside, or in a public bathroom.

There goes my trip to the Bar on Friday. Wouldn't want to end up next to one of these drippers and have them pee on my shoe.

Gross.

So, how about this day. Wednesday, what a weird word. Almost as weird as Monday.

I think some of you or the men you are living with may need to seek the advise of a medical professional.
