I Don't Like Automatically Flushing Toilets

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 110 People

    It Never Fails.

    I get up to get some toilet paper and WOOSH.  The darn thing flushes.  This wastes twice or even thrice or more the amount of water that it normally would!  And sometimes I just want to change my clothes in a stall (for X-Country or something of the like) and the blasted...

    It Depends

    I have no problem with urinals that automatically flush, but who in the world thought that having a toilet subject to flushing while you are still sitting on it was a good thing? Seriously. What were they thinking?!?

    The Ones At the Gym

    The toilets at the gym always seem to flush before I'm finished. I'm still sitting on the dang bowl and "whoosh" there it goes and I'm left with a wet behind because those dang things are so powerful they splash a hell of a lot of water up.

    Automatically Flushing

    I'm all for automatic flushing toilets, automatic water sink and automatic hand dryer.  The least I touch the better it is.

    If I Suddenly Go Missing...

    it's probably because I've been sucked into one - or blown off one - or had a nervous breakdown from the anxiety of the entire experience.   Damnable public voiding.

    They Don't Work!

    I wave my hand by the senosr, so it will flush before I sit down. That doesn't seem to do the trick, so I go for it anyways. The second I start to pee, it flushes over and over the whole time. what's up with that?

    Where Is The Button, Man?

    There Useless

    I have them at work and 90% of the time they don't work. So you have to push th little black button on the side. Not only do they need to carry tampons in the restrooms they need to carry latex gloves. Becuase it's just gross. I don't see how people don't wash their hands after...

    I Don't Trust Them

    Everytime I come up to one of these automatic devices and "do my business" I always feel like it's not going to flush, and that bugs the **** out of me. I'm one of those people that NEEDS to flush the toilet after use, almost OCD about it. The phrase "if...

    Come On! Do Your Thing!

    Haha when I stand up the dumb thing doesn't flush! I have to end pushing the little black button anyways. And I HATE those sensory activated sinks! If I flap anymore under there, I'll fly away. Another thing, those hot-air hand dryers. That would take forever to dry my...

    I Hate Them All

    They flush 5 times before you're done. You try to wash your hands and the water wont stay on then then paper towels wont shoot out t the hand dryer barely works. Sometimes the toilets towels are automatic but not the sink. WTF?

    To Flush Or Not To Flush

    I have never liked public toilets. Ever. Of course, there comes a time one just has to squeeze the lemon. In my few visits to this “hygienic” room, I have noticed… differences.   It’s the newest renovation craze in the shopping centres. Old hand-flush toilets out...

    Could We Please Be Trusted to Flush?

    I just traveled across the country for work, and invariably with a visit to the airport Ladies room, you are met with a symphony of flushing from all the various stalls, somewhat resembling the din from the Niagara falls.  You open the door to a stall, and it flushes.  ...

    They Scare Me

    Usually they flush when I'm still on them, so I end up jumping mid pee and then I feel the water splashing at my bum.  It's just awkward.  Especially if there is another person in the bathroom, then I'll feel rushed and try to go fast.  Then there are the times...

    Manual > Automatic

    I don't like them because they flush when I'm not done and they scare the sauce out of me. Some like them because you don't have to touch anything to flush, but you still have to wash your hands afterwards people!
