I Hate the Restroom

I'm in a cubible of the bathroom and happen to look up at the ass gasket dispenser. The edge of the box is peeking through the hole of the dispenser and I can see the brand name - Life Guard.

I ask you, isn't that just a tad overwraught? Was the name "Butt Guard" already taken? Are we selling through fear?

Well, considering how many people go around their whole lives with their heads up their asses, it might not be overreacting after all. I mean, there's a lot to guard down there....

Oh, dood, toilet seat covers are TOTALLY a product of fear. Last I heard, the handle of a bathroom door had a zillion times as many germs as a toilet seat, and we don't use door handle covers, do we? Toilet seat covers exist to make people feel better, but they don't do anything but waste resources. :)

While I was in Chicago a few years ago, I saw soemthing that sort of creeped me out: it was a plastic toilet seat cover that, instead of being manually placed there by the toilet user, was instead a permanent thing that, with the use of a sensor, would rotate between usings.

Theoretically, there was some giant roll of this tubular plastic that was being unrolled at one end and being collected at the other. On the other hand, the hardware that would seem necessary for this wasn't in evidence. It seemed to me that it was just the same tube of plastic going round and round, giving a false sense of ass-urance. Somehow, that seemed to me to be more distasteful than a bald, naked toilet seat.
