Auto-flush causes trouble

Have you ever gone to a bathroom and noticed that there is a problem with the automatic flusher? I find it very annoying when I’m in the middle of going to the bathroom and the toilet flushes on me. The  problems in the bathroom continue with automatic faucets. When you wash your hands the water stops and you have to wave your hands at the sensor about five times. These new things are great, but just come with too many problems.

I remember when the automatic flushing came in, I thought it was the coolest thing since sliced bread. As I got older I realized how much they truly frustrate me. I think that we should just get rid of them. I mean, let’s all be honest, it is not difficult to pull the lever to flush the toilet or turn on the faucet manually. Automatic flushers just show how lazy we are as humans. Also, have you ever been on the toilet and for some reason it just flushes and gets you all wet? I just don’t understand why the toilet would randomly flush while we are still using it. Another issue is when the toilet does not flush at all. You get up and try to make the sensor go off and it just won’t work. You have to hit the button that is on the sensor to flush it so what is the difference between that and just simply pulling the lever. Sometimes there is no button and you have no alternative but to walk away.

What could be the solution to this problem? Just get rid of them. If people agree and think that these are not worth having why not just switch back to the manual ones? I am just sick of going to the bathroom and getting splashed while I’m trying to relax.

Sometimes the person before you didn’t flush because they thought that it would flush automatically. So next time you go to the bathroom and it utilizes an automatic system, I bet you might just find a problem with it.
