...but I really have to pee.
I really hate it when I go into a public restroom and they have those automatic flush toilets. Sure it's great that I don't have to worry about touching that disgusting flush handle and all the associated disgusting public germs that are on it. Not to mention I don't have to happen unsuspectingly on any surprises left in the toilet by the previous non-flusher to occupy that particular stall, but still I hate it, and let me tell you why. Have you ever tried to use one of those paper toilet seat covers (guys aren't going to relate to this, probably at all...at least not the guys I know). Ok, so you just get the seat cover situated, but before you can even get the pants unbuttoned the automatic flusher kicks on and WHOOSH!, there goes your seat cover down the drain. So you try again, this time thinking that you can outwit the flusher and pre-unbutton the pants before arranging the seat cover, but to no avail. In fact ,this can be worse because you might actually try to get contact only to have the seat cover flushed away a moment before touchdown and then you are sitting bare-assed on a public toilet seat which is exactly what you were trying to avoid in the first place! Anybody who knows me knows that if I'm using a public restroom at all it's because it's a real emergency and any delay (ie, a toilet seat cover being flushed down the toilet) can be quite disastrous. That's all I have to say.
