NO SHIT.. I love when some dumbass uses a hand dryer while you are in a public restroom. Shows how stupid the average Joe really is. That would be the one our ten that even washes their hand to begin with. Better yet would be the restaurant workers that take a shit ( assuming that's what they are doin in a stall ) and then leave without washing. AMERICOON PRIDE #1
