The Magical Flushing Toilet

I had to share this.

Yesterday after work, I made a visit to the loo to say hi to John. And without any prompting, the toilet flushed itself, as if to say, “Hi! Don’t worry about it. I’ll take care of that!”

It couldn’t have been a residual flush that just didn’t finish because that bathroom hadn’t been used in 24 hours. And I didn’t bump the handle with my arm. I’m really puzzled as to how this freak occurence happened, yet I’m also oddly pleased that it did.

I look forward to more automatic flushing in the home. That way I don’t have to hire someone to do it for me.

You may want to check this, I mean toilet's insides for what could be voice activation system.

Did the toilet flush before or after you said "hi" to John?

Btw, if anyone said hi to me like that, I'd hurt them.

Joseph, after, which makes it all the more scary.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
