God bless flushing and toilet seats. . .

Interesting fact about Greece. . . you are instructed not to throw toilet paper in the toilet. . . it must be thrown in the trash.

Can we say, “Ewww?”

The bathrooms in Greece. . . well. . . they smell like. . . well, you know.  It has that nursing home/urine smell.  It’s really sad to say that, but it’s true.

The sewer systems cannot handle toilet paper in most areas. . . so you throw your used paper in a trash can near the toilet.  I think it’s neat that this article claims it doesn’t generally smell.  These people are full of it.

I had many “accidents” where the paper went in the toilet because it’s just 2nd nature to do it.

Then, we saw this picture in a restaurant. . .

Apparently, only the devil flushes his toilet paper. Good to know.

After seeing this sign, every time I would mistakenly flush toilet paper. . . I would yell from the bathroom, “DANGIT. . . I’M GOING TO HELL!”

Also, let’s take a look at a lovely place we visited in Paros.  YES, I had to pee BADLY. . . there was no waiting for another opportunity. . . so I had to do a squatting maneuver. . . and yes, of course I’ve done this in a corn fields before so it wasn’t that big of a deal. . . BUT this time, I was laughing so hard that it made this maneuver a serious challenge.

Uh. . . yeah.

Ahh, the comforts of home. . . 😉
