They always flush before you're ready for them to.
My office only has automatic toilets (and sinks which are worse) but I’ve found that if you cover the sensor with toilet paper, it doesn’t randomly flush. And, if you’re all about not wasting paper, you can use that for your final wipe, and walk away knowing you’ve beat the system.
I don't like them either, and I will tell you why, Mea.
They never let me see my own turd and take photos, so I don't like them either. Sometimes I really drop the mother of all turds, and need to upload it to the internet, and send it to loved ones. But those freaking automatic toilets always break my art into pieces.
Sometimes I get lucky and it clogs up the toilet, and I can take my picture to add it to my collection, which is pretty cool.
If the are working right they are fine. I’ve been on some, every time you took a breath the damn thing flushed! Like ten times while you’re sitting there getting your butt sprayed! ? Also, you have to be very careful not to drop anything into the bowl. If you do, It’s gone!
They used to freak out my kids. With my youngest I'd have to be in the stall with her with her with my hand covering the sensor. She would poop and cry telling me not to let it flush the whole time. It was awful and way to dramatic!
Then always someone in the next stall would flush or someone would dry their hands with one of those really loud dryers and everything would just fall apart. Good times ?
Yes, they always flush before I throw the paper in so I have to flush again--what a waste of money!
Another thing--when my daughter was a newly toilet trained toddler, the toilets would totally scare her & she'd refuse to use them, with the expected results.... I figured out that you can "blindfold" the stupid things with a simple piece of toilet paper over their little glass eyes. They won't flush until you remove it.
