Let’s all be honest and face it: sometimes, we often come across a problem and despite the inconvenience it causes, you refuse to look for a solution because it’s embarrassing, or you think you’re the only one facing it.

For example, this:

The toilet bowl flushing countless times as you’re shitting, and therefore rendering your butt wet even when you’re not done.

Worst of all, someone could be waiting outside and when he or she hears the flushing, the person might just think that you’re done…only to realise that nothing could be further from the truth.

That look when you finally exit is priceless.

If this problem has been plaguing you, this article is for you, because there’s a solution that’s so simple, you’ll hit yourself for not thinking of it earlier.

Motion-Sensor Toilet Bowls

Lest you’re confused, we’re talking about motion-sensor toilet bowls.

So, what’s the solution?

Firstly, wash your hands before you enter the cubicle. Once you’re in, look for the “eye”—that is, the sensor. In most toilets, they’re near the blinking red lights, but sometimes, they might be somewhere else—just look around until you’ve confirmed that you’ve located it.

Take about three sheets of toilet paper and wet it with your hands. Then stick the toilet paper on the sensor. The logic of wetting the paper is so that it will stick on the sensor if it is embedded in a wall.

Yeah, it’s as simple as that.

The sensor would think that it’s sensing something, so no matter how you move, it won’t think that you’ve left the toilet.

Do you know that if you nod when you suggest something, the listener would tend to agree? Here’s a video on the ten ways to control others with psychological hacks:

Once you’re done, just remove the toilet paper. The sensor will sense a “movement” and flush—at the correct timing.

This also serves as the solution to the second problem: toilet bowls not flushing because they can’t detect if you’re done.

You’re therefore solving two problems with one solution.

Yeah, I know you’re thanking me. No problem; just remember this: this shit has just outsmarted the machine.
