My office has automatic flush toilets. I pee roughly 7-8 times a day there. Then I come home to my manual flush toilet and use it 2-5 times. Sometimes, I got to the movies and it’s hit or miss as to whether there is an auto flush or manual flush. Most restaurants are manual but not always.
The problem is, I get conditioned by the auto flush toilets at work. Then I am around manual flush toilets and guess what? I forget to flush. Of course, by the time my brain remembers it’s not an auto flush, someone else is in the bathroom. Hence my embarrassment. I know how to use a toilet properly, but when there are two completely different methods of flushing and one is more common, I go on auto pilot and assume it’s an auto flush. But the person in there must be thinking, what the hell is wrong with this girl was she raised out in the wild? How come she didn’t flush? I want to scream out, because I forgot to check to see if it was an auto flush or not.
My point is: I like consistency. One way to flush the toilet. Either auto or manual. Otherwise, it’s like using the metric system and the U.S. system of inches and pounds. It just muddies the waters. And then there are some public restrooms using auto flush and some not. Look, it’s a public restroom–I want in and out as fast as humanly possible. So don’t make me have to use my foot to press the lever. Convert to auto flush. Don’t half ass it.
Which do you prefer? Have you ever been embarrassed by an auto flush toilet?
