pammylammy :  haha i don’t know how to feel to be honest, I like them better than the ones you flush yourself as there are (too many) disgusting people that don’t flush the toilet, but i do agree that they either flush too fast or don’t flush after you’re done so you have the press the button anyway to flush.

There’s a trick about these I learned from the kindergarten teachers at my daughter’s school!  (Poor little kids will wait too long and wet their pants because they’re afraid to use the automatic flushing toilets there.)  They give the kids a small post-it to stick over the sensor light before sitting down, then they can just push the button when they’re done. (All these toilets have a push button for manual flushing – good for those double-flushing situations, btw)

Anyway – yes, hate them too!

Oh I love them! I’ve even looked into having them fitted at home, and the taps that work the same way too. I’m very weird about bathrooms. I have a cleaner who comes to do mine, it’s the only job in the house I can’t do. We aren’t messy animals lol, but the fact that we have toilets on the same premises as we eat and wash and sleep disgusts me, it has done for as long as I can remember. An outdoor loo would be heaven to me (lots of creature comforts of course, not just a shed). So in short I adore them, the less to touch in the bathroom the better, but I am very strange tongue-out

pammylammy :  I have mixed feelings on them. It does bother me that they flush no sooner I sit down or stand up, but they are great when someone isn’t a flusher. I, personally, think it’s a waste of water for people who are flushers because it will flush 1 to 3 times before you’re even ready and you still have to flush it yourself after you finish your business.

 

weddedblyss :  Cool trick. Good to know!

WasMissNowMrs :  This made me LOL

My only issue with these toilets is that since I’m really only going to come across one in a public bathroom, I’m gonna hover/squat and not actually sit on the toilet to pee…so the thing flushes before I’m done…which always startles me. lol

I’m with southerngal2016.  They flush before I’m ready, and they always seem to spray water on me when they do this.  However, it is so gross when people don’t flush the toliet and this does help with that problem.

Yeah I’m not a fan.

This reminds me of someone at work. Somehow her wedding ring fell off into the toilet while she was on it but she didn’t want to get up because it would automatically flush. So maintenance had to shut the toilets off 😂

bibber :  LOL! That’s too funny! I would be staying on the toilet in that case as well!

There are crazy automatic toilets where I work that erupt like geysers when they flush. I got splashed in the face once by explosive toilet water and ever since then I make sure I’m not facing the toilet when it starts flushing. So gross.

I actually hate all automatic things like this. I hate it when the toilet flushes when Im not done, I hate trying to move my hands to the perfect spot so the damn automatic faucet senses them and starts, and I hate waiting for automatic doors to open, so I’m left standing in front like an idiot haha.

When we bought our house those kholer automatic faucets had just come out and Fiance really wanted it. I told him ‘have you ever had trouble getting your fucking hands washed in the bathroom bc it had an automatic one?!’ he agreed, and we did not get it.

LOL i just like doing things myself I guess.

MissCountryGirl727 :  Ha! Honestly, I just don’t like bathrooms, I’ll use a public toilet if it’s just not realistic to wait until I’m home but I lay a “paper nest” down first, sounds mad but I place about four or five layers of tissue on the seat before I sit on it (someone once warned me not to hover or squat because you don’t empty your bladder properly so it can cause problems down the line). My bedroom had an ensuite that was turned into a dressing room because there was no way I wanted a toilet that close to my bed lol. Issues!

I hate hearing the loud, startling sound from behind my back! I used to be terrified of these as a child too!

My little one hates them and it makes going potty in public places so much harder than it needs to be. No one likes to be surprised while peeing- yet I’m always caught off guard because it flushes at the wrong time.
