Does anybody else hate automatic flushing toilets?

They always flush before you're ready for them to.

You can say that again!


No I hate the faucets. They never come on when you need them to.

antman Level 7 July 18, 2018

Yeah and they shut off while youre trying to rinse your hands off... Then have to stand there, waving your hands in front of the damn things looking like a jackass in order to get the water to come back on...
I hate those damn things with a passion.


Not as much as i hate assholes that do not flush.

AnneWimsey Level 8 July 17, 2018

I haaaaate them. I leaned forward to graphics toilet paper stop flushing aaaah the sprayyyyy


My office has automatic toilets. I'm cool with them. I'm okay not touching something everyone else has touched.

Although, there are times at home when I wait for it to flush then have to remember that I'm not at work.

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.

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.

Yes... and also this....

WeaZ Level 7 July 17, 2018

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!


Not as much as porta potties, outhouses, or the woods.

While it's nice not having to touch stuff - they seem to flush more than they have to - wasting a lot of water !

evergreen Level 8 July 17, 2018

I don't like them when the pressure is turned up and you get the toilet water mist and splash on the back door.

Like many have said hough I do prefer to it cleaning up after some animal who hasn't flushed.


The are abomination I absolutely hate them!


I don't give a shit!

ipdg77 Level 8 July 25, 2018

Hate. The feeling of being trapped in a box while this waste receptical showers you with an aggressive flush has always unnerved me.

WrenVett Level 5 July 18, 2018

So being motion triggered, I have an advantage it seems over some of you. I have a wide derriere, so it never flushes until I'm done and standing. If the stall is small enough I either have to leave the stall or manually flush it. LOL.

BeeHappy Level 9 July 17, 2018

Nope. They never flush at the right time!

JayGee83 Level 5 July 17, 2018

Yes. Why are they so loud?


They were fine until I learned about "toilet plume". That phrase generated a new one, out of immediate necessity, "piss and run". An easier feat for a male, no doubt. Bathrooms are not well suited, by purpose, for a quick getaway.

Byrdsfan Level 8 July 17, 2018

A great way to ensure the water bill is going to be 3 times what it would normally be!

Holysocks Level 7 July 17, 2018

I don't like them especially when your still sitting on it before you're done. I like the ones with the handle I don't use my hand I use my foot on them.

Sheannutt Level 9 July 17, 2018

I was using one when that happened. Almost literally scared the sh*t out of me!

@tallguy241 yep it definitely does


I hate them. We have one at my job that sometimes flushes over and over...even when no one is in the stall. That's a huge waste of water and money.

1 ain't over until the paperwork is done! I hate anything automatic! Ain't nothin but a stick shift in my Chevy!

IrmaBast Level 3 Jan 14, 2019

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.

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 ?
