Open letter

Dear inventor of the self flushing toilet,


Next time you decide to create something that's supposed to make our lives easier, make sure it actually works. I'd prefer it NOT flush when I'm sitting on it, my booty does not need a midday shower. No matter what I do, no matter how still I sit or how I've even contemplating holding my breath so as not to set it off with my apparently heavy breathing....it still flushes every time mid business. You know when it doesn't flush. When I actually stand up to leave. Ya know...when it's supposed to! So if you could go ahead and fix those problems for the next generation of automatic flushers, that would be great.

I like those because I am all about NOT touching things in public bathrooms but you're right. It's like technology is impatient. You're too slow!

LOL....usually happens to me when I shift to start "cleaning off"....sometimes it will flush and spray me multiple times. Maybe it's supposed to be a bidet'??? xoxo mom

i.cannot.stand.this!!! it always happens to me at the movie theater. the one's at the mall seem to work okay for me. i think the ones at my mall are like all-knowing or something and the ones at the movie theater are stupid.
