Interesting question that keeps popping into my head after something I saw today. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Read details...

I was at Starbucks today and went to use the restroom to find paper towels stuffed into the toilet. The previous user was a young girl - no more than 12 - who had actually been in the restroom twice in a row. The first time she took so long her sister was telling her to get out since they were leaving and then she ran back in only a few minutes later as I was getting ready to use it. Now, I don't know what the hell this world is coming to but what is wrong with parents not teaching their children NOT to stuff things in the toilet? I had to get one of the employees since there was no way I was going to flush that in case it flooded and I wouldn't dream of just reaching my hand in there without rubber gloves. If the girl was under 8 maybe I could see this but she was older than that.

Sounds like she was acting out and trying to get attention for some reason. She may be abused or just spoiled, we will never know.

Yeah, though not sure about the getting attention thing since it seems more like she just thought that's where she should put the towels. After all, how the heck would the store know how to contact her mother in the event someone had flushed those down? I'm surprised she didn't flush them, though.

She is doing the wrong things, to get someone to notice her. She may be doing it wrong, but that is her goal. Children (and people in general), usually do these types of things to get attention and for someone to notice their pain.

You won't believe what people will do. Honestly, I was at a retreat for my church and happened to be in the lodge and staring out the window. One of the guys who stayed in the lodge came around the corner to take a piss in the woods. Honestly? What, he couldn't take the time to get real privacy and go in the bathroom that was only 20 more steps away? Didn't realize what he was about to do until he almost had his pants undone. Hate when people do stuff like that.

Not all of them. Trust me, if you were in my position you'd regret your words right now. I never told mom "I hate you" but I went through a phase where I would curse at her. Now she's gone. She wasn't my biological mother but she was my mom. She raised me properly the best she could without any help. She taught me from the beginning that you don't shove stuff in the toilets.
