I don’t understand foot flushers. I’m sure you’ve seen people do this. They use their foot to flush the toilet. Why do they flush with their foot? Is the handle so far out of arm’s reach that it requires a leg?
Perhaps foot flushing is for sanitary reasons. As in, my hands are so dirty I can’t stand to add any more bacteria before I get to the sink. That would be too much scrubbing. There’s no time for extra scrubbing. I’m very busy.
Or, perhaps the foot flushers get a rush out of the power of flushing with a foot. Like when you prop your foot on a rock after climbing a mountain. I have conquered the toilet! Flush!
There must be a piece to this foot flushing puzzle that I’m missing. What is it? I’m perplexed.
When it comes to public bathrooms, I wholeheartedly endorse foot flushing, and I myself am a foot flusher of many years. This is 100 percent a sanitary issue. Knowing how rarely people wash their hands and how even more rarely some places clean their bathrooms, I not only flush with my foot, but I also use my shod feet to lift and/or put down the lids/seats when needed.
I’d rather have those icky, nasty germs on my shoes than on my hands — even for the short amount of time it takes to get to the sink to wash up.
And, on top of that, I don’t touch the bathroom door with my hands when I leave. I use some combination of knee-foot-elbow-shoulder to get out.
That’s very Cirque Du Soleil. I admire your skills. I tried foot flushing once but the sole of my high-heeled shoe was too slick and my foot went flying off. The second time I tried it I changed my angle and got the flush dead-on, but getting out of the stall using no hands gave me a bruise on the forearm.
When Obama get’s reelected, I think he should make a law requiring automatic flushes on all urinals and commodes.
Well you foot flushers cause a lot of bathroom damage in public places. If you have such germ phobias I would like to suggest you just stay home or hold it till you get home.
Yes I do know what I am talking about. Have been in commercial property management many years. Heaven forbid you ever have to go into a porta-potty!
