on those automatic toilets if they do not flush on their own! I think is is so wonderful that technology has graced us with the toilets that flush automatically after you "visit" it. What a great convenience! The problem is some things do not work as they are designed to all the time and yes, some of the toilets fail to flush. That is where human intervention comes into play. All you have to do in most cases is simply push the little button. I get so tired of going into these restrooms and having to do the job for people after I have had to see the remains of their "visit" floating around. Please tell everyone you know I give them permission to push the button!

I don't find anything wrong with pushing the buttons. I know If I can reach my foot to push anything to flush the toilet I will do so. If I can reach my foot I will wrap my hands with paper to flush the bowl. It's better to push it than to leave a surprise for the next user.

I'm always flabbergasted by the fact that people don't bother taking the extra two seconds it requires to flush the toilet. It's stupid. But yeah, the new toilet technology is awesome. :) It's long overdue.

Most of the time I don't even wait for the toilet to flush itself. I just reach over and push the button. I hate it when you go into a public restroom and someone has not flushed. It is disgusting.
