Scene: Burbank Airport
Spacemom is in urgent need of a restroom. She finds a women’s room and walks in with 2 women following. She manages to get stuck with the handicap stall that is sans lock. Lovely. She steps out of the stall to hear one of the women sudden jump out of a stall
"It’s Broken! My toilet is broken!"
I peer in, looks good to me…
"It doesn’t have a flusher!"
The other woman also comes out " Mine doesn’t have one either!"
This is surreal, this isn’t true.
I speak up "these are automatically flushing toilets"
A VERY dirty look sent my way "Yeah!, How can these toilets flush without the flusher?"
I start to explain and then realize this is just not worth it. I take the stall she has just abandoned (without the flusher) and void. I get up, zip and button and Ah… the toilet flushes. Thanks to technology.
The stall next to mine flushes. The "no flusher" woman yells "HOW DID YOU GET IT TO FLUSH?"
Two women had never heard of automatically flushing toilets. Where have they been? Have they missed the technology boom north of them? Damn, I guess Figlet was right. It’s the Valley Girls.
