Sometimes after flushing with my foot, I drag a 5 year old into the stall and make her touch the handle.

That seems fairly specific.

What happens if no 5 year old available, but there is an eight year old? Wink


If it's an 8 year old, I teach them how to reach up with their foot to flush. Then I make them touch the handle anyway.

Yeah, not to be harsh or anything, but it's probably a really good thing you didn't have kids.

that was a little mean


That's an odd thing to say...to both of you.

Considering I have never expressed for a nanosecond a desire to myself, friends, family, boyfriends, husbands, co-workers, acquaintances or complete strangers that I had the slighted urge, yen or desire for giving birth, or to be in any way being responsible for a child.

More like a kindness and a blessing.

One less flu shot too.

yep, and those who keep trying to kill all the microbes not only are fighting a lost cause, but a stupid one as well. about a year ago I was reading someone make a good case that all these anti-bacteria soaps, wipes and gels are one giant step back for human health, as the microbes now are because of them becoming resistant to our means to kill them much faster than expected,

This is merely example of "what's good for an individual is harmful to the population as a whole."

It's not an unusual situation at all.

A good way to avoid flu contact is to make sure you use your foot when you flush the toilet.


Who flushes? That's the next guy's problem. Don't envy him.

@izzythepush,
That makes it sound like you have a yen for leaving a little present in a lady's handbag. Same with your up-thumber.

Now how the h*ll did a nice "public service announcement" become such a mean post.

I get mine for free - either at work or my dr's office. I think most people should be able to get the shot without a cost (or else it seems that way).

If it is convenient, I usually get it; if not I don't. I forgot to fill out the online thing for work, but I do have a dr's office visit this month so she will probably shoot me up. Since whether I get the shot or not I rarely get sick it almost doesn't matter - why if it is easy with no cost, why the h*ll not. My doctor once mentioned it to me this way - can you afford to be knocked off your feet for a week.

@spendius,
You seem to be following me around calling me a misogynist today old mate. I won't ask why.

On a serious note, when I was on a ship in Dakar, you couldn't drink the water, and had to keep your mouth shut when you showered. Everyone had a bout of illness, and, as the ship was being refitted following a fire we were there a lot longer than usual. The crew made friends with lots of embassy staff. Everyone drank bottled water, but the Americans went one step further and cookede with bottled water. As a result, the Americans were sick far more often than the Europeans.

Well -- your joke was a bit demeaning to the female sex and you had to invent, contrary to Henry Fielding's sound advice, a talking dog in order to fetch it up.

You won't ever catch me on a ship in Dakar. You sure are a glutton for punishment.

I didn't invent anything, it's an old Lenny Henry routine.
