Ewwww!

Important to remember:

Teach your children NOT to pick up coins that they find on the floor of public bathrooms. Otherwise, you'll find yourself watching your seven-year-old crawling on her hands and knees on said public bathroom floor to collect said coins. And you'll be so stunned and horrified that you will be incapable of speech and therefore not able to tell her to get up.

But, you will have the presence of mind to scrub her hands and the money thoroughly AND give her a hot, sudsy shower later on.

I have to agree - public bathrooms are the one place where the 10 second rule does not and will never apply. If it is on the floor, then leave it...or pick it up when no-one is looking..

What'd you do with the money? =)

I have actually seen women lay their *infants* down on public bathroom floors for diaper changes. I should be fair and mention they always first lay down a paper thin receiving blanket beneath the child so they're *certain* to soak up every nasty germ in the place. Gah!

Daddy Dan: It was TWO PENNIES. Big bucks. Now that they've been sanitized, El has put them in her wallet, for the next time she goes shopping.
