I was in a coffee shop this past weekend picking up some Java when I was greeted by a Barista lady working her frothy milk technique w/ a steam wand for the guest in front of me. I could tell her skill took time so I used this as an opportunity give my bladder a break by using the public toilet. Upon entry I read a sign that was hung directly above the toilet paper holder:
"Our toilet is cranky....please do not flush foreign objects ie. lady products. p.s. a courtesy flush is a appreciated."
Courtesy Flush!? I was confused by this, since when did flushing become a courtesy? A quick skip to Urban Dictionary gave me my answer.
A flush in the middle of the toilet-sitting process in order to reduce the aroma...usually performed on a "foreign throne" as a courtesy to the owner of said throne... in other words, to be polite and not stink up the host's crapper too much.
"I gave a courtesy flush at the Smith's party because I didn't want to kill the next person to use the bathroom"

As a self professed people pleaser, I am thrilled to have a new method to show courtesy to my fellow man, unfortunately it means I'll be walking around w/ a soggy backside from all the back flush. Gotta love Life & it's many valuable lessons, glad my eyes were open for this one.
