Taking some "me time" on the toilet should be a peaceful experience, and usually, it is, in the comfort of your own home, but what happens when you have to use a public restroom? Even the most bathroom shy of people has been caught in that terrifying moment of panic where you have to frantically search for a restroom and pray that you don't find anything too horrific inside.

The following is a list compiled by Bored Panda of the most extreme bathroom design fails that made at least one person if not everyone's' bathroom experience odd, uncomfortable, terrifying and possibly hilarious. From toilettes with no stall to inconveniently placed soap dispensers you won't believe these crappy designs. And remember don't forget to upvote your favs!

If you have ever been to a public restroom you will notice that the line for the women's bathroom tends to be longer than the men's. Well researchers have found that men actually spend more time on the toilet than women do - seven hours a year in fact. According to the poll men reported they used their bathroom time to hide from a nagging partner, avoid kids, spend time on their phone or just for some 'me time.'

Factoring both men and women, the average person spends at least 92 days in the toilet over the course of their lifetime. We use the toilet around 5 to 7 times a day which adds up to 2500 times a year. If you factor in the minutes spent each time, it could be possible you are spending more than three months or three years of your life in the bathroom!

If you have ever wondered why someone is taking extra long in the toilet it may not be for the reason that you think. Surveys that 75% of people use their cellphones whilst on the toilet, whether it's texting, emailing or even taking phone calls. With this much cell-related bathroom activity it's no wonder that 7 million phones end up in the toilet each year.

Going to the bathroom takes up a significant amount of our lives, but using a proper toilet is something many of us take for granted. In 2001, November 19th was named as "U.N World Toilet Day" by the World Toilet Organization, "a global non-profit committed to improving toilet and sanitation conditions worldwide." The aim of this day is "breaking the silence on the sanitation crisis."

For a largely sedentary activity, using the toilet comes with lots of risks. A reportedly 85% of bathroom-related injures occur from someone falling into the toilet after the seat has been left up. Leaving the seat up was listed as one of the top bathroom annoyance for women - hmm looks like there is a correlation there.

We have all found some unsavory things in public restrooms, but regardless of how many people use these toilets there are actually no more bacteria in public toilet than in a home bathroom. The air in public restrooms is normally cool, dry, and filled with oxygen which is not ideal for supporting fecal matter bacteria. Our of the other germs found in these public bathrooms 68% of them we come into contract with just by being outside.

University of Arizona microbiology professor Charles P. Gerba found that soap in public toilets can actually make you dirtier. There’s “so much fecal matter that you’re almost better off washing your hands in the toilet after you flush it,” said Gerba. Airborne bacteria finds its way into open dispensers and the over-dilution of soap mixtures make it less resistant to the germs living there - gross.
