Mine is people that let their cabin doors slam shut behind them. I hear doors all hours of the day & night when I am in my cabin & it about drives me nuts. I try to be mindful of others when I leave my cabin & pull the do closed myself without it slamming shut.
You reminded me of one and that is the passengers who walk past the hand sanitizer's before going into the dinning room, at night the crew even stands outside the dinning room and holds the bottle and puts in your hands for you and people still walk right by them, yuck whats up with that anyway.
Not defending all people that do that, but in defense of some, they may have just come out of the restroom around the corner where they just washed their hands.
With all due respect, (and I do greatly) they still would have had to touch the bathroom door to get out.
It has always puzzled me as to why people wash their hands, at least the guys that do it and then grab the door. They probably pick up more germs from doing that than they had.
I use a paper towel to grab the men's room door handle on the way out (and after washing). I am one of those people responsible for the pile of paper towels one often sees on the floor just inside the door, although I do try to hit the trash can.
I also use a paper towel to open the restroom, although I noticed last week on Grandeur of the Seas that a lot of Ladies' Rooms doors open out. One just needs to push the door with a shoulder or arm.
The restroom doors that open inwards had a trash receptacle near enough the door so you don't have to throw it. I just held the door open with my foot and was able to lean over and put the paper towel in the trash.
I do the same about the door. However, I notice alot of people that don't. I kept mentioning this to Carnival in the suggestion area of the comment card. I don't know if it had any influence, but they have tissue dispensers now for the door handles. They should put a big sign up explaining what they are for.
Well I am not sure if this is a pet peeve or just sad, but I always see some people load their tray full of food and leave half of it. Some of it hasn't even be touched. I find that rather sad. I just hate to waste food and see food wasted. Must be my childhood upbringing, I heard it every night at the dinner table. They were always starving in Europe according to my dear sweet parents. Plus it just makes our fares go up ! I know I can go back and get more if I really want to.
There was this slob on the Liberty Of The Seas cruise in 2007 - he used a stall and as he exited it he laughed and shook his head at me as I grabbed the door handle with a paper towel. The pig didn't wash his hands and had used a stall...I later learned he was a diamond plus member. I guess loyalty doesn't mean a person has any class or personal hygiene standards. His mocking me really angered me. It was one of those moments that I wished I had a hot cup of coffee to accidently spill on him, or perhaps for the men's room door to somehow nail him in the face.
