Someone who’s parent beat them when they used too much paper because they didn’t have anything to wipe with during the depression thus perpetuating a scarcity complex. So to satisfy their complex they make everyone fear the waste of paper.

u/APe28Comococo Nov 26 '22 edited Nov 26 '22

Yep all this instead of adopting the bidet.

Edit: I know you dry yourself after, I know you pre-wipe if it’s a crappy bidet, but here in America a lot of people especially men don’t wipe enough because they were forced to conserve toilet paper by their parents.

84

u/Teripid Nov 26 '22

I agree in theory and for private use.

Still yhe idea of giving the average American access to a small hose in a bathroom stall would for sure also result in some crazy horror stories.

u/youknowwhatstuart Nov 26 '22

I live on bumfuck mountain SC people would think it's a water fountain that's why we don't have those in the U.S. besides maybe in fancy hotels. My friend has one I thought his wife used it to wash her hair or something......no, no sir it's what Europeans use instead of toilet paper. I was shocked to say the least!

THIS THIS THIS - A lot of people in Korea use bidets (along with those heated toilet seats, hehe) and whenever I read about it on Reddit, there are always people who think that it's used instead of toilet paper. Nasty!

You use tp to wipe away the bigger bits at first, then use the bidet to wash up - then use tp again to wipe away the water. Done properly, it's like using baby wipes but quicker and cleaner.

Not using toilet paper at all just because you used a bidet!?!?!? Crazy stuff.

No you don't. Unless you have a seperate bidet which can't deal with debris.

u/rolling-brownout Nov 26 '22

I think that's the confusion... I imagine wiping before use of a European bidet (the seperate mini bath thing) would be required for a pleasant experience. Not so for a Japanese washlet or SE Asian/Middle Eastern style "bum gun".

By the way, it's my opinion that the latter two should relegate the Euro bidet to the history books as obsolete.

u/MissMormie Nov 26 '22

I don't use a bidet at all. But the person before said to wipe before using a bidet, that has nothing to do with a soggy ass.

But if you go to the middle east, or other warm places they've used bidets for ages you'll find a lot of toilets don't even have paper. And yes, if you pay attention you'll see alot of people walking around with wet spots in their crotch. It's just water, it'll dry.

u/Queeb_the_Dweeb Nov 26 '22

I misread and thought they were talking about wiping after the bidet, not before. Wiping before is pointless.

This literally serves no purpose. The exact same amount of toilet paper is used regardless of whether there is one in each cubicle or not. This just means individual rolls are now just used at double the speed, which means you have to replace them more frequently. It's more work.

Adding on the creepiness factor and possible hygiene issues, this has to be one of the stupidest fucking things I've ever seen in my life.

3

u/fromYYZtoSEA Nov 26 '22

Exactly. Plus the non-standard TP attachment required ad-hoc work.

Many places even have 2 rolls as standard always hanging in there. So attendants need to spend less time going in to check if there’s TP left.

This reminded me of when I worked at the airport and the toilet roll holders could be opened with a key. With one side open you could peer into the stall next to it. My coworkers and I always noticed the janitor following us into there. One day I went in and faked a log. Janitor rolled up with his cart and went into the stall next to me. I heard keys on the tp holder then saw some light shine through. I stood up and put my phone over the divider and snapped a pic. My dumbass had the flash and sound on so I gtfo. Got back to my store and looked at the photo and the damn janitor was bent over peering through the tp holder tryna look at my goods. Reported to airport police. They never fired the guy just moved him to different terminal. Can't imagine all the other people he's preyed on.

When their fingers grazed one another reaching for the TP, it was immediate sparks. The tension could’ve been cut with a thread as they both wiped and exited their respective stalls. As they both walked up to the sinks to wash their hands, the air became pungent with the smells of their previous acts. It was at that moment, they knew they weren’t meant for each other.
