These Automatic Times

The degree of automation in our modern world can become extremely annoying at times. There is an Irving Oil convenience store in Belfast, Maine, with restroom toilets that automatically flush. At least the ones in the men's room do. I am normally in favor of this type of toilet in public restrooms; however, the ones in this restroom will flush seven or eight times while you are enthroned. I have left a few notes in their suggestion box letting them know of the problem, but nothing has been done. Still, it is a very clean facility, and the folks who work there are extremely pleasant. Hopefully some Irving Oil manager will read this. Please feel free to forward this if you know where it should go.
