Do you cover or hover?

Well, it seems on the subject of toilet seat covers either you cover them or you don’t.  I don’t cover, and truth be known I don’t hover effectively anymore either.  Once you reach a certain age..hovering can either be dangerous or embarrassing.  I notice that there are getting to be more hovering accidents, but women just don’t like to talk about them. 
When the girls were little they hated going into a public restroom with their Grandma H..she would cover the entire seat with toilet paper before they could sit down.  She would be happier now …lots of Public Restrooms have the individual covers available.  Charmin actually makes a product called Charmin To Go Toilet seat covers ( 20 for 6.85). So that you never have to be reduced to covering with toilet paper again.   There are some really huge covers that are made to cover the entire seat, If I had a small child that was potty training this might come in handy, apparently they unfold and create a very stiff cover ..Sesame Street Disposable Toilet Seat Covers ( 40 for 18.86).
Far Guys Mom would spend a lot of time just covering the seat in a public restroom.  I suspect this is the reason why the lines to the bathrooms are so very long at some events…couldn’t they just have a line for those who cover.. and another for those who hover (or claim to)?  Makes sense to me. Possibly they could have a line that just uses the bare old seat…
I have a sneaking suspicion that the covering of the seat is just a habit..does that tiny see through piece of paper actually protect you from anything other than the germs in your mind?  Possibly there are less germs on the toilet seat than there are on the door handle that you just touched on your way out of the bathroom.
 I found a new solution for women called the Urinelle…it is made especially for women ..women can now pee standing up..and you won’t have to worry about it running down your leg or splashing onto your clothing or spattering your shoes. 

 Now my question …  do you ladies cover or hover? :)

    I just sit my butt down and figure that people’s hands are usually dirtier than their butts anyway.

    Yep, I just sit my butt down and get comfortable. I might be there a while, ya never know. I once heard that you’d have to STAND on the toilet seat to avoid the “germs.” I figure if I’m going to catch something, I would have by now. I DO make a habit of washing my hands.

    I worry more about the door handle that’s been touched by non-washers. I, too, just sit down, after checking to make sure the previous occupant didn’t hover in a messy manner. I figure you can never avoid all germs. Plus, i’ve heard that a toilet seat has less germs than the office telephone or your desk top.

    I am a trusting Sitter On The Stool! I do not like the idea of touching doorknobs or other public stuff like Abra said. They are sources of lots of filth…probably worse than toilet seats. There is a hilarious forwarded e mail called “The Stance” that I have seen more than once about the dilemma women face in public bathrooms. That’s one the Stand Up Men have on us Females.
