Gross, gross, gross. When I was a kid, we lived in town and neither of my parents flushed. So by the time I got home from school, there were several wee's in the toilet, and the stink in summer especially was disgusting. I used to flush before I went and after!

I should add that one of my toilets is currently broken (won't flush) and I need to get it fixed.
Despite me telling my kids I'm getting a plumber in and not to use the broken one under any circumstances, someone did pee in it and shut the lid and forgot about it. The stench it generated in this heat was stomach churning.

Did no one else grow up in an Australian drought and need to conserve water?!
Flushing after every pee is so wasteful!

I grew up in the country, droughts and water restrictions were the norm.
We would have two buckets in the shower to catch water and these were used to flush pee if restrictions were bad.

We are on tank water on a farm so we don't flush each time when it's just us at home. But when we lived in the city we generally flushed each time except for the middle of the night.
As for work: GROSS. Always always flush! Also if you do it at home, make sure you flush when you're having visitors over. It is so disgusting to visit someone and go to use the loo and find your host's wee in the bowl. Yuck.

Ok at home and if you close the lid of the loo and the door too.
Not ok at work.
