So earlier today as I was sitting and pondering life while meditating on the toilet a question came to mind. The lady in the stall next to me finished her business and then flushed the toilet with her foot. I know many, many women who will push the lever with their foot rather than their hand. So the questions arose, how many of us do this and why? The next thing we are going to do is wash our hands. Why is the foot flush so prevalent? Edited to add- This refers to public toilets. I am a staunch believer that whatever you choose to do at home is your own business!
