And a follow on question … Do they do the same thing at their own home? Because seriously … does anyone want that kind of plumbing bill?
WebSavvyMom saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 10:40 am
–>I have a lot of friends who have accidently flushed their cell phones and pagers (dating myself) down the toilet. But it was usually around 2 a.m. when the bars were closing.
MidLifeMama saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 10:50 am
They would be people who work in my building. I had to put a similar sign up in our bathroom. Seriously. Poop, pee, and TP. That is all that should go in the toilet.

I’ve seen this happen (from outside the stall, thankyouverymuch), mostly at airport bathrooms–no TP; grab a paper towel before going in; forget to put it in the container and flush instead = blocked toilets for the rest of us. I keep a baggie of TP in my backpack when traveling…
p.j. saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 11:21 am
I agree with Bossy’s Mom.
I also want to know how people (in my office building) manage to leave the stall without flushing!!! How can one possibly “forget”? WHAT is that about???
Grossed out, p.j.
Maureen in IL saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 11:22 am
I heart bossys Mom. amen.
Audubon Ron saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 11:24 am
What is people with empty TP rolls for $20?
Kathy from NJ saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 11:26 am
People who did not grow up with septic systems often flush lots of stuff – also some people new to the US. My parents had a housekeeper from Ghana who flushed EVERYTHING – she thought toilets were magic. After the plumber pulled out cloth hand towels, underwear, etc we had a long talk with her.
The Domestic Goddess saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 11:27 am
Not only do they leave the stalls without flushing, when I worked in the corporate world I was COMPLETELY DISGUSTED to find out how many people went back to their desks without washing their freaking hands. EW!
Elsewhere saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 11:39 am
@Bossy’s Mom: go rinse your mouth with soapy water. I say!
furiousBall saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 11:51 am
also, those flushable wipeys for kids learning to go to the potty…. you know who prints flushable on those things? plumbers
Olivia saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 12:12 pm
Worse is the sign in my office building telling occupants to “please ensure the stall is clean for the next occupant and if blood (!) gets outside the toilet to call maintenence have it properly cleaned”.
mia saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 12:20 pm
Oh Lord, don’t EVEn get me started….. I work in a hospital and EVERYTHING ends up in the bathroom, in the toilets, sinks and floor. And yes, not only do some of these people need a sign – I think they need pictures…. Just sayin.

The same people who cut to the front of the line because they are in a “rush,” don’t put the weights back on the proper rack at the gym (if at all) and leave their used towels on the locker room floor instead of the towel basket two feet away from them, don’t wait for folks to get off the subway car before barreling on, and leave their shopping cart unattended in the middle of the aisle.
Suzanne saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 2:57 pm
I LOVE Bossy’s Mom. 🙂 lovelovelove
Bellacantare saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 3:03 pm
Total agreement with pj (#7). David’s (#16) rant is something I totally could’ve said myself, because even just reading that gets me all riled up! I hate people.

It’s people who have outhouses, where you can just chuck an entire pick-up truck down the hole without worry…
Tom saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 6:04 pm
Maybe its people that watch plumbing manufacturing videos. They are always flushing ping-pong balls and what not to show how great they are
Jennifer saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 7:04 pm
I once reached over to flush at the airport and watched my favorite sunglasses go a swirling away…..
Meg at the Members Lounge saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 7:42 pm
Oh Bossy’s Mom, we must have the same selfish bastard circles.
Cactus Petunia saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 8:39 pm
Well, sheesh! Where else are we supposed to flush paper towels?
Eliza saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 8:55 pm
My husband. We got a new puppy and I finally caught him flushing the “accident” and the paper towel he picked it up with. Explains the mysterious and sudden need for plunging that first week with the dog. (Both puppy and husband are now trained.)
Cupcake Murphy saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 9:30 pm
It’s me. I flush my used post-it notes, earrings and dried up sharpies down the toilet. Sorry everyone.
Jenn @ Juggling LIfe saysJanuary 13, 2010 at 11:28 pm
With our proximity to the border we have to have very specific signs about what goes in the toilet. In parts of Central American you don’t flush anything, so the trash cans can get quite disgusting with that which should definitely be flushed.
