Pet Peeve #1

I'm a pretty easygoing person. Not a lot bugs me. At least as long as my obsessive compulsiveness doesn't kick in. But lets talk about public restrooms for a minute. It's not like anybody particularly enjoys using public restrooms. But some people are just so freaked out about it they won't even use them. Ever. I'm not one of those people. I have no problem using one as long as it is clean and doesn't smell horrible. I could talk about several things that bother me about public restrooms, such as lazy people that don't bother to flush, or people that pee all over the seat because they insist on trying to "hover" without at least cleaning it off. But no, I'm going to talk about another pet peeve of mine. Super Duper powerful flushing machines. These are no ordinary toilets. These commodes with the ultra heavy duty flushing mechanism would be powerful enough to effectively make whatever is unlucky enough to fall into its porcelain depths disappear. Kids, go ahead and shove those barbie dolls and whatever toys you want down there!! These toilets will CONSUME them!!

You would think that toilets with a powerful effective flush would be a good thing. But what drives me absolutely nuts, is the fact that the flush is so strong, it totally sprays the seat with every single flush. So what would have been an otherwise clean bathroom, now grosses me out. I mean, who wants to sit on a seat and get a wet behind, especially from dirty toilet water. YUCK!!! Manufacturers and business owners LISTEN UP! More powerful does NOT equal better. I'm tired of inadvertently sitting on WET toilet seats!!!

OK, rant over =)

LMAO! This is funny, but I do understand. And god forbid you be sitting on the heavy duty one and reach around to flush it. It will create a vacuum using your ass and try to suck you in as well. At the very least you will have a nice red seat imprint on you that won't leave anytime soon. LOL! Not the kind of marks those in TTWD prefer to have.
