We’ve all read that the bathroom medicine cabinet isn’t the best place to store medicine. Too warm, too much humidity.
Well, there’s another reason you may not want to store your medical secrets in your bathroom medicine cabinets – snooping visitors.
In a recent survey, 70% of people admitted to peeking into their host’s medicine cabinet. It seems the temptation to snoop into someone else’s private space is too much to resist for many.
I heard of a woman who, before hosting a large party, booby trapped the medicine cabinet in her bathroom. Sure enough, a short time after one visitor popped into the loo, she heard the sound of cascading pill bottles. Gotcha! When the flustered guest emerged a few minutes later she was waiting and politely asked him if he needed anything. Red faced, he muttered something about “headache…looking for an aspirin.” Do you think he‘ll ever snoop in a medicine cabinet again?
The next time you’re expecting guests it may not be enough to scrub the toilet, put out fresh towels, and remove the plastic toys from the bathtub. Some guests WILL snoop in your medicine cabinet. Relocate that pregnancy test box if you don’t want anyone to know.
