AUTOMATIC FLUSHERS

I was standing in the bathroom and it finally hit me. We are so stinking lazy anymore. We have had these in our company bathrooms for years now and I don't know why but it hit me. We cannot even flush the toilet anymore it is all automated. Just do what you have to do and walk away and it will flush all by itself. Now that is the urinals and yes it is convenient but come on how lazy can we be. Now it comes down to the toilets and you are just sitting there and you want to be nice and give that courtesy flush. Before you would reach back there and hit the handle and of course you will yell "COURTESY FLUSH". Now you have to reach back there and find that little button and you just keep feeling back there and it is not very easy to find. There is the next best thing you just try to move your body around so it gets out of the way of the sensor so it will flush. It is like you are doing a dance inside the stall and by the time you are done you are to tired to yell anything. Then a second after you get up off the toilet you hear it flush and you wonder why did I dance in there I should have just stood up.




Then you walk to the sink to wash your hands you just hold them under the faucet and the water turns on by itself. No more handles to turn on or off just slide your hands in and get them wet so you can go to the automatic soap dispenser. Yes just get the soap automatically and wash away. It gets better because the paper towels are all automatic too, just find the sensor and hold your hand under and here comes the towels. Now I do not mind all this but you tend to get use to it and rely on it too much. I do this for a month at work and then I go to my armory for a drill weekend and I go in the bathroom to use it and then just walk away. As I am walking away I realize the toilet did not flush and I have to go back and flush it because it is not automatic. Wow I cannot believe how lazy we got. Well as I go wash my hands I hold my hands under the faucets and actually wait a second or too and wonder why the water is not coming out. Oh yeah I need to turn the handles to get water. I guess I should not complain because there are people who do not flush anyway so I should be thankful something is flushing for them. I guess I should be happy but if they come up with automatic wipers then I must just have to go with the flow. Let's just hope they are gentle.

I seriously chuckled at this post because I KNOWWWW...
We have the auto everything at my work too - they say it's for energy efficiency. But when I go to the restroom, more times than not, I'm sitting there and hear the auto faucet start up (and I'm the only one in there). Then the toilet flushes at least 4 times before I can even get out over the stall. I go to wash my hands and the water goes off and on several times. Ughhhh....

One day in Baghdad, I had to go over to the BIG palace...into the back....had to leave my cameras and stuff outside...
As I was leaving, I had to hit the head...and it was GOLD plated.
I asked the guard if I could just bring my camera in to take a picture of the gold pottty...
"nope." So I said, "well, then I'm at least going to sit on it for a minute."
Worked like any other.
