Stop “blocking your blessing”

February 3rd, 2011 · 76 comments

Jo spotted this testimony in a restroom at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia.

I guessing this particular portion of the Gospel of (the) John was lost in translation from the Greek or some such — a shame, cause “God doesn’t like ugly” would make a great protest sign.

To the Person Who Keeps Leaving Their Mess in the Toilet. I'M SO GLAD I WASN'T RAISED LIKE YOU....I KNOW YOU ARE PURPOSELY LEAVING YOUR MESS IN THE TOILET BECAUSE YOU DO IT EVERY DAY.... STOP BLOCKING YOUR BLESSING BY BEING MEAN SPIRITED GROW UP!!!!!. AND FLUSH THE TOILET. THAT'S JUST NASTY!!!!!!!!!!! [that is so true (shame on you)] GOD DOESN'T LIKE

    If I had seen that note, I would have added that comment.

    Talk about nasty.

    You know how people push their puppy’s face in the puppy poo while housetraining them? I wish we could do that with people who don’t flush.

    ps Every time you don’t flush, God kills a puppy.

      That method of house training (more accurately of “paper training” by putting their nose to the poo with admonishment, not their face and not beating the living crap out of them, then to the newspaper with “good” petting) a puppy actually does work. It’s operant conditioning.
      It may not be the preferred method these days, but it works just the same.
      Training indoor dogs to hold it until they get outdoors is an entirely different thing.
      A “paper trained” dog will continue to pee and poo only on the newspaper.
      A “house trained” dog will know to hold it all in until he is let outside or walked.

      At home we follow the guidelines:

      If it’s yellow let it mellow, if it’s brown flush it down.

      However, in public, it’s always a flusher.

    I’m going to guess that God has bigger issues to worry about than whether someone flushes or not.
    That said, it’s pretty lazy and gross especially if poop is involved.
    As for the environmental argument, I don’t flush urine at home (unless a guest is coming over), but I always flush in public toilets and I always flush poop.

      We get water once a week(less if there is blizzard),if we flushed every time we took a leak we’d be melting snow for water by Friday.

    • #8.4   Russian

      Urine is definitely not as bad, but it’s not sterile. For one thing, bacteria quickly start acting on it once it leaves the body. For another, it’s only sterile leaving the kidneys. On the way to or from the bladder it can get a bit mucked up. We all knew that really. Otherwise, why would we wash our hands every time we visit the bathroom?

      uh, yes – urine is sterile. bacteria “acting on it” doesn’t make it less so. the bacteria is from the world around it, not from the urine. the urine itself is sterile. should i say it again?

      and we wash our hands because it’s a good habit and hands are fucking filthy (though NOT from urine).

      Armauld, you must use a lot of air freshener, keep the temperature in your home very low, have very many guests coming over… or very few of them and use a lot of toilet bowl cleaner. Toilets stain pretty easily when they’re steeped in pee-water, and the stench is unpleasant as the bacteria thrive in there! :lol:

    Agreed. No one needs to see another’s poo. Pee is one thing, it disspiates, it’s generic, it’s sterile (or so they say) it doesn’t have the “personality” that a turd has. The single most gut wrenching moment I’ve had with my current roommate was when I realized that she had gone into the bathroom after I had, er, used the toilet, then showered without flushing (morning rush, unreliable water temperature, you know), and then forgot to flush post shower.

    I can handle unflushed poo better than I can handle going into a bathroom stall that looks like a slaughter house. A coworker of mine thinks the only explanation for how blood can get that high on the walls is that someone is whirling used tampons above their head like bolos.

    I am acquainted with children who grew up without running water. The toilet was flushed by pouring water into it, and this was done by Mom. The kids (now teen-agers) know how to flush a modern toilet, but it is not an automatic response, you have to remind them. Folks raised with modern plumbing usually flush without thinking!

    I work as a washroom attendant in a sports venue. I work the washrooms on the main concourse, where the “normal” people have seats. My coworkers in the box area, where the people with money have seats, tell me that the more money people have, the less likely they are to flush. I guess they’re too good for it.
