    Of course people are flushing them. They're called flushable. What else will they do with them? They should be taken off the market.

Well let's just say you notice red bodily fluid (the size of 2 x 50 cents) on the ground at the border between the two cubicles. It's not hard to miss as the person is trying to clean the mess with toilet paper. When they 'finish' cleaning you still see a darkish smudge - someone who hadn't witnessed the events probably wouldn't realise what it was. Your child isn't in imminent danger of stepping in it as he is fortunately positioned on the opposite side of the cubicle.

    What would you do?
    What do you think I did?

    Happy Saturday night!

    Ps: yes this is a fluff thread and yes there are more important things going on in the world.
    Hold on. I just realised you said your pre-schooler went to the toilet with BARE feet. Are you okay? Feeling unwell? This seems so unlike you!

    That's what happens in a society that is told to follow the directions on the packet

    If they really aren't flushable, if the case against them was that iron clad.... why haven't they been taken off the market yet?

    I know. Caught off guard after swimming... Grossed me out totally. Not something I would want to repeat.

    They should be taken off the market. Or at least rebranded

    Default Wwyd: Saturday night shoes (sort of) scenario

    I have no idea. It's well known the damage they are causing. But then again coffee pods create a massive amount of land fill and they're legal

    Go figure. I guess it's just not a priority.

    Cigarettes are killing thousands of people and smokers are clogging up our health system but also still on the market. Sad.
