Nurse on TikTok declares we’ve all been using the sinks in public bathrooms wrong

Thanks to Gen Z and TikTok University, we have been made aware of so many things we’ve been doing “wrong” our entire lives.

“No one ever told me that sh*t.”

Apparently she wasn’t the only one who wondered how these types of bathroom sinks worked.
