Here's another reason for New Yorkers to think North Carolina is just hicksville and in need of special ed!
Our area is suffering from a drought. To save water, our family has adopted an if its yellow, let it mellow philosophy toward flushing the toilet. Weve proudly watched our consumption fall. But is it appropriate not to flush at work or at friends homes? We are in a drought. Andy, Carrboro, N.C.
Hang on a second. I just need to finish watering the lawn.
I applaud your familys economy almost as much as I dont want to drop by for a visit.
The problem with implementing your policy outside the home, however, at work or at friends houses, is that absent a group decision to stop flushing, your unilateral act might offend people who are unaware of its noble intentions. Theyll just think youre gross.
Let's save the water, but if you piss in my home and don't flush, you won't be invited back! That's just flipping nasty to do in someone else's toilet!
