To my way of thinking, flushing a toilet ought to take everything down and away. No arguments, no talking back. Just take it and go.
But over the last year or two, I’m noticing a ‘Bad-et’ trend. Public toilets are becoming aggressive.
I shouldn’t have to worry the entire time about those motion sensors going off prematurely. One tiny shift or movement out of me and the surly swirly goes rebel wild! I need to be prepared for that Niagara Falls auto-flush.
Wait, I wasn’t ready!
And there is nothing more disgusting than feeling a splashback of water hit you where the good Lord split you. (Or anywhere else for that matter.)
I usually jump forward as fast as I can toward the door to try to escape the toilet’s wrath, and if it still manages to give me ‘a refreshing spritz’, I die a little bit inside.
And I disinfect a lotta bit on the outside.
Bad day on the Bad-et, indeed.
True story with a real ‘made-up’ word, Bad-et (aka Splashback): The flush that sprays back up and gives you a refreshing spritz.
