New Toilets Are Designed to Force People to Spend Less Time in the Restroom
19 December 2019
We all have those days at work where we just want to quit and go home. But rather than making such an irrational decision that we'd probably regret later, we opt to take a quick time-out, also known as an "extended toilet-break."
No, they're not technically approved by our bosses, but everyone needs a little "me-time", right?
Well, you might have to say goodbye to that little luxury because a company in the United Kingdom has developed a toilet that will change the way you tinkle... forever.
Keep scrolling to read about the shocking reasons for this new creation...
