Default Automatic Bathrooms

Yeesh. I realize that this new addition to the college is supposed to be all high-tech, but the bathrooms??? Come on, if you are going to put a lot of technology into the bathrooms, GET IT TO WORK RIGHT before you put it in there!!! Am I right, people?

So you walk into this bathroom and every faucet you walk by starts shooting out water...heh...even though it seems kinda dumb since you're nowhere near them, and who washes their hands BEFORE they go to the bathroom? You find a stall and sit, and proceed to answer your call of nature, whereupon the toilet flushes even though you are still sitting on it. This is where good reflexes come in handy, because then you might be able to spring up and get yourself and your clothing out of the way before either gets splashed with toilet water. By the time you are actually done using the toilet, it has actually flushed three or four times. You go back to the sinks and make an attempt to wash your hands, but the faucets don't turn on till you actually begin to walk away after giving up. Thank God the soap isn't automatic. It'd probably squirt your shoes as you walked by.

So, after having had to dry off your butt from the toilet water and washed your hands in the water fountain (eww, i know, but due to the automatic bathroom people do actually do this, i have personally witnessed it), you are on your way to class in a not-so-bright and sunshiny mood. You are probably by now vowing to use a bush outside next time.

Frustrated users of the automatic bathrooms unite!! Fertilize those bushes!! Cause it'* a loooong hike to the nearest bathroom where you can still push a lever to flush the toilet...

Hey, when ya gotta go, you gotta go.

We call em idiot bathrooms at work, one of the urinal in the mens room is constantly running....typ "hands free device". Now if only we could learn to aim and practise a hands on policy...might keep the wall clean

Very humourous look at bathroom technology....I'll go look for the nearest peeing rock

Squatting over the ground is not as easy as it looks.

Just marking our territory!!

Sometimes I wonder if it'* a water-saving feature, or an attempt to keep the bathroom cleaner, since neither happens...
