Automatic Flushing Toilets (or ATF's)

I can't stand these. Whoever invented these ought to be shot.

For you germaphobes......grow a pair and use your foot like the rest of us to flush a toilet. Or, grab some tp and use it to cover the handle to flush.

These things are so ridiculous. Half the time they don't flush at all and you have to push that little button. The other half of the time......they flush while you're mid-stream....or worse. In order to avoid getting your entire ass covered in backsplash (or worse) you have to stop mid-stream (or worse) and get up. Then, if you want to still avoid getting your rear wet, you have to (while your pants are pulled down and you still need to finish what it is you entered the stall for) wipe down the seat or put a new seat cover on (provided there are any seat covers left).

We have one here at work that any slightest move you make, it flushes. Not only is that a huge pain in the ass (no pun intended for it doesn't hurt unless you're constipated) but it's such a water waster.

To top it off, all you potty-training parents feel my pain. I can remember when light of my life was potty-training (and really, even up til she was 5), she HATED these toilets with a passion. I mean, with a screaming, almost fit-throwing passion. I would have to enter the stall ahead of her and stand behind the toilet to cover the motion sensor so it wouldn't go off before, during or after she was touching her precious little bottom to the toilet. Such a pain.

Thank goodness she's over that part, but she's like me in that she hates them as well.

I'll get off the pot.....er...my soapbox now.

put a sticky note (post it note) over the sensor.

Yeah, I read about that. Problem is, I never remember to do it. LOL!
