This could be in family as well, but I've had this discussion with friends about their guests so decided this could go here.
Warning: slightly queasy contents here.
Within minutes of arriving at my brother's home for the holidays, it became abundantly clear that I had a UTI which I had mistaken for travel nerves. I spent a large part of Christmas week gulping cranberry juice and water in addition to antibiotics and azo painkillers. The natural result was that I spent a lot of time in the bathroom.
The bathroom I was using connected my room with another guest room inhabited by SIL's Mom and my niece who offered me her room. Here's where I have the question:
I was in and out of the bathroom several times each night straight thru into the a.m. Each time I used the facilities, I flushed because...well, who wants to see the contents?
However, Gramma also uses that bathroom and very pointedly did not flush when she used the bathroom during the night. This resulted in me, I am sorry to say, flushing twice because...ugh!
I have had conversations with friends who complain about guests who seem to think the polite thing to do after everyone has gone to bed is to not flush until the a.m. We all agree that the polite thing to do is flush so that everyone has a clean canvas, so to speak.
Is this just me? Am I just easily squicked out? Where do ehellions land on this issue or non-issue as the case may be?
