+116 Auto flush toilets are incredibly annoying, amirite?

by Anonymous 9 months ago

I'd like if they had the sensor pointing sideways or something, where you had to actually wave your hand around the side to flush it. Because yeah, either they refuse to flush at the right time or just constantly go off.

by Anonymous 9 months ago

Yeah, that would be perfect.

Or just have a manual flush

I hate them because I like to look upon my works... I'm kinda kidding but as someone with digestive issues I do like to check out what's going on quickly just to monitor my health.

Sometimes you have to look to make sure everything is ok.

Super agree with you. What I hate the most is it splashing your ass with water. Wonder how much water has been wasted.

They are annoying to use, but I appreciate them because I clean toilets at work. Customers don't flush for some reason. I'm sure many of you do, but too many don't.

Auto flushing toilets aren't made for the 10 people that flush. They're made for the 1 person who doesn't.

I am in my first trimester of pregnancy. One day, I was really nauseated at work, so I ran to the bathroom. The toilet was an auto flush…..it flushed twice while I threw up. It was one of those really forceful ones that sprayed water up over the seat. So here I was trying to keep my face dry while uncontrollably heaving. It. Was. A. Nightmare. Then the auto faucet ran for 2 seconds and quit working. I had soap all over my hands….the other faucet didn't work at all. It was a bad day.

Sounds awful. And don't get me started on the automatic faucets.

I was terrified of them as a kid

I grew up in a small town and have always been leery of pipes. The first time we visited the city one of the toilets auto flushed while I was mid pee and I flew out of that stall so fast, pants down, screaming like a banshee, piss all over the floor. I was 8 or so.

My grandma likes to talk about when she took me to Disney and I saw an automatic flush toilet for the first time and I cried. Not sure if we didn't have them in my small town at that point or I just happened to get lucky and never faced one before then. She says "I get it. It was a very loud one". The loud ones still scare me.

The toilets in my office have a flush with a huge splash zone. Couple that with a very sensitive automatic flush, you're essentially sprinting away from the bowl with your pants down to avoid getting sprayed with poop water.

by Anonymous 9 months ago

I'm literally so glad the toilets at my work don't do this because I press the flash and dash a way like a scared kid because water sprays out the bowl all over the floor. Whatever toilets, in whatever floor, they all do it. So badly designed.

And when you are ACTUALLY done, the sensor doesn't pick up the movement and the toilet doesn't flush so you have to keep waving your hands by the sensor because there's no manual flusher. I agree.

One time, in a grocery store, I (young at the time) went in the bathroom and it had auto toilets. Annoyed the frick out of me every little movement I made be it a shiver (those toilet seats were cold) or anything, they flushed. It flushed like 4 times while I was sitting there. Not a fan.

If people flushed the toilet it wouldn't be a problem

by Anonymous 9 months ago

Or even better is make all or most toilets have the handle at the ground to flush with your feet.

by Anonymous 9 months ago

I agree with you! Irritating and, quite frankly, a little scary.

Use your foot?! I'm confused.

It always scares me so much when it flushes without my consent i feel violated and like all the toilet air is blowing up my ass and vag

They always flush at the wrong time

A couple months ago I had a wardrobe malfunction at work and went to the bathroom to fix it. I got in a small stall, peed, and fiddled with the broken zipper on my jeans. I stood up, pulled up the pants and tried messing with the zipper that way, too. The toilet flushed and I carried on with the zipper. The toilet proceeded to flush 4 more times which just launched me into a total breakdown. Not only was my zipper broken at work, but I am now being harassed by a toilet with motion sensor. For some context, I had had an exponentially worse day than normal and everything was just piling up. The repetitive toilet flushing while frantically trying to zip my pants was... Too much.

TIL auto flush toilets exist

Where are you from? Just curious

It's still better than non flushed toilet :)

by Anonymous 9 months ago

All auto appliances in bathrooms suck. The lights will go off when you're in the stall, the paper towel dispenser gives you too short a towel, the toilet will flush 3x times if you move, the water either doesn't turn on at all or doesn't give you enough water, and the soap might drop in your hand, on the floor, or on your sleeve. They're all awful.

by Anonymous 9 months ago

Also…you aren't able to look at it which is important at times especially if you're not feeling well/etc or notice something and then you need to get checked out.

Yeah, before you even get a good look at your doody.

I hate the ones that flush so violently that toilet water might spray out. There's not a lot of room to dodge in a cubicle.

by Anonymous 9 months ago

Ew, I think it's so gross when someone uses their nasty shoe to flush the toilet. Get a piece of toilet paper if you don't want to touch it.

by Anonymous 9 months ago

Is it because you like to stand up and look back at your poop as it's coming out and then the auto flush comes and ruins the poop castle you were building?

by Anonymous 9 months ago

Wait until you see the ones that open the lid and rinse themselves to prove they're clean when you walk by them and repeatedly continue to do so if you're loitering within its vision. Toto makes them, probably a few other manufacturers as well. I've had the pleasure of working in close proximity of them in homes, and it's annoying AF.

My middle school had auto flush toilets and one of them actually clogged and overflowed because the sensor detected a fly buzzing right past it

by Anonymous 9 months ago

I'd rather just have auto taps

by Anonymous 9 months ago

Even worse when you're wearing a high vis which sets it off every second 😮‍💨

by Anonymous 9 months ago

Agreed. Especially in those stalls where you have to parkour to get around the stall door, the toilet will flush on its own at get droplets of "poo water" everywhere.

by Anonymous 9 months ago

It either doesn't flush or it flushes way too fast. No middle ground that ever works, and it freaks me out. How do you know i'm done??

by Anonymous 9 months ago

I have never heard of these, what future are you in

by Anonymous 9 months ago

If your wearing a white shirt, they'll flush everytime you move a bit. Like if you lean forward to grab more TP or what have you. With all the flushing, I know it's wasting a lot of water too

I am terrified of those kind of toilets, plus airplane toilets when they flush.

I have to wear a reflective vest at work. If I don't take it off before walking into the bathroom, every toilet that isn't behind a closed stall door flushes.

Are you trying to see what you left behind? If not, what's the problem?

Just because I stand up doesn't mean I'm finished.

Would rather have them than not have them, if you go to school you understand why.

Person in the stall next to you disagrees.

The worst is when you're trying to put the paper ass-gasket down and it flushes it away while you're unbuckling and turning around. LOL

I hate how loud they are. I have really sensitive ears so the flush + the acoustics of the bathroom = very upset ears.

NOT UNPOPULAR!

Yeah I have OCD with germaphobia and it disgusts me when they go off before I have the chance to run out of the stall cause they never have lids and I remember hearing how the toilet germs spray out like 5 feet when you flush

I don't like them because they overflush and get water on the seat.
