Why, people? Why? WHY DO YOU NO FLUSH THE TOILET AFTER USING IT?
You’re probably wondering what brought this bizarre burst of outrage of mine, but I am tired – tired, I tell you! – of having to go to the toilets in schools, airports, and malls, and having to see the… undesirable liquids and used tissues of the person who used it before me, remaining in the toilet bowl. We’re in the year 2015, people; we should have gotten rid of our unhygienic ways a century ago! Even if you don’t believe in the necessity of doing this, at least do it as a basic courtesy to the people who will be using the toilets after you.
I’m absolutely appalled that there are people out there who are like this. I don’t know if it’s because they’re stupid, are forgetful, or if they’re doing this to troll other people, but it sucks. I was at the mall yesterday and needed to use the toilets after having lunch, so I waited outside a cubicle for a minute or two, when the door opened and this beautiful local woman walked out. I was in awe of her beauty when I realized, hey! I’ve been here for a while and she has been there for a while, but I didn’t hear the water running! So I peeked inside and lo and behold: she didn’t flush. And she fucking threw her tissue into the bowl when the toilet bin was just beside it. I MEAN, THE FLUSH BUTTON WAS RIGHT ON THE WALL, AS BIG AND AS OBVIOUS AS THE NOSE OF RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER, AND SHE. DIDN’T. FLUSH.
Let’s do some real talk: it’s disgusting, people. If you’re at the privacy of your home, you can do whatever you want with your toilets. You don’t have to flush it if you don’t want to; heck, you can let the flies build a nest there for all I care, but when you’re outside and in the public domain, you have to think of other people.. If they’re respectful enough to leave a clean toilet for you to use, why shouldn’t you do the same, especially if you’re well capable of doing it and you are aware that it’s basic courtesy?
I wish this were an isolated case, but it however is not. I graduated from a pretty good private university back in the Philippines, but there were days where I would encounter more than just yellow piss left to rot in the bowl. I encountered them in an international airport. It leaves me flabbergasted each and every time.
Let’s get this out of the way: FLUSH THE TOILET.
DON’T THROW YOUR TISSUES INTO THE BOWL.
Result: people happy.
Please, for the love of all things holy and sanitary, don’t be that asshole.
