i used to flush
December 8, 2010
As is my wont, I used the bathroom today. You know. Like everyday.
Found this waiting for me:
I guess I didn’t realize this was a problem. I mean, come to think of it, maybe that’s why someone invented auto-flush toilets, to solve this problem.
And I guess that germaphobes don’t flush mainly because they don’t want to touch that handle. Although, germaphobes, if you’re reading (and I know you are), consider this—NOT flushing kind of means you better not come back this afternoon, right? Cuz, ick.
My very scientific research conducted this morning indicates that this sign has been ineffective at best, and downright counterproductive at worst. The law of unintended consequences I guess.
Because, for those of us with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (you can look it up), this sign might not be the best way to reach us.
And I say that as someone who USED to flush.
