I Don't Like Automatically Flushing Toilets

    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?

    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.

    Where Is The Button, Man?

    When i first came in contact with an auto flush toilet, it took me a while to figure out where the button was. I mean it was so tiny, i was worried that visually impaied and blind people like myself would never see the flush button. And its in various different places according...

    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...

    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...

    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?

    Ghost Toilets

     I don't like automatic flushing toilets because I'm trying to pee or something, suddenly it flushes and some toilet water splashes on my ***,etc.. Its gross. Also those toilets just don't work right. Most of the time, they don't flush after I am done so I have to press...

    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...

    They Scare Me

    I have almost fell in several times when the stupid toilet flushed by itself, scaring me half to death.  I hate these stupid things.  I am an adult and can flush my own toilet.  Yes, I see them as more sanitary because you aren't risking touching others germs but...

    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...

    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!

    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?!?

    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.

    Automatically Flushing

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

    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.  ...

    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...
