To “sit” on a toilet bowl means users were generally comfortable enough to expose their bare bottoms to the cold porcelain seats beneath them. To “squat” over a toilet means that most users were not comfortable touching any part of the toilet seat and so they exercised the “squat”. This may take some extra thigh muscle support. We do not recommend squatting when carrying heavy objects, if you are tired or intoxicated, or if the toilet seat is much higher than average. However, we DO recommend squatting when the toilet is just plain nasty. In the end, it’s your decision entirely. We are not responsible for what happens behind closed bathroom doors.
Okay is it me or is this just plain hilarious??? I happened upon the "news you can use" section of our local paper this morning letting readers know that Procter & Gamble's Charmin brand toilet paper has a site that helps travelers find clean public restrooms. SitOrSquat.com guides families traveling with children, people with special needs, those with handicap access or those like me that need access pretty quickly!!! The article says that the site has logged more than 52,000 toilets in 10 countries. Actually, I find this information to be quite valuable, however, I still find it highly amusing.
Several of my blog friends (whom shall remain nameless) have written extensive posts regarding "potty" habits and one included a poll. Using the toilet is a necessary function and there is much humor in the habits of the masses. When I was younger I had "public restroom shyness" If someone was in the stalls I would wait and wait for them to leave. My 50 year old bladder DOES NOT CARE!!! (I know, I know TMI) Some of the funniest stories I've heard involve the extremes some people will go to...to ensure they can "potty in private" As we know, our brothers in this world can tinkle anywhere they desire...our anatomy is different and thus is not conducive to using the nearest tree...which leads me to the next point of interest...this company has created a cup and spout type gizmo for the ladies...Uh uh!!!
So, what do you think, interested? Personally, when in the wilds of Africa or wherever...I'll go with the time proven...find a bush and someone to keep guard!!! How about you?
