Flush the Fucking Toilet

When using the bathroom, I figured it was common sense (silly me) to make sure everything flushes before exiting the stall. Apparently not.

The issue seems to have gotten exponentially worse since the installation of automatically flushing toilets. It’s like people have decided that they will allow a motion sensor to take over all decision making around this task. “Glad I don’t have to think about that anymore.”

The problem is that one flush is not always enough. Also, some motion sensors don’t properly detect motion (being a teeny tiny human, I’ve had to ask people to walk in front of doors at the grocery store for me to get them to open).

Let’s all just observe the campsite rule in public bathrooms: leave it in at least as good a state as when you found it. That means that there should be no remnants of your visit in, on, or around the toilet. Flush as many times as necessary. Do not leave any toilet paper that your ass may or may not have touched anywhere in sight. Perhaps you made a makeshift toilet seat cover; great, don’t let me see it. Perhaps some toilet paper fell on the floor-it happens, trash or flush it. Perhaps there was some seat sprinkle; don’t let me sit on it. Basically, don’t make someone else deal with whatever you did in the stall.

When in doubt…no! Why is there doubt? There should be no doubt. Just flush the fucking toilet!
