Why don't mexicans flush toilet paper down the commode?
As a traveling production consultant, I'm in contact with lots of personalities and cultures all the time.

In one Texas factory that I visited, most of the labor force is Mexican, Guatemalan, Salvadorean, etc...

When using the restroom facilities, I noticed a big plastic waste container next to every toilet -- stuffed to the top with soiled toilet paper.

Though disgusting and putrid to look at, I figured that the sewer lines must be backed up at that factory and tried to be understandable.

However, I was told later that this was not the case, and "that's just the employee's culture, since they don't have plumbing where they come from".

Really?
WTF?

This was an American factory. How is that allowed? The rest of the facility was vibrantly clean, modern, and very well decorated.

The restrooms were totally filthy and disgusting. I actually felt like I needed a shower when I left that place.

so you're making a sweeping generalization of an ENTIRE grog pf people because of the disgusting conditions of one factory???

you're not the brightest light bulb in the box, are you?

I've heard of shit like that before. I'm 99% sure that are the people who own the factory skimped on things like proper plumbing and are forcing these workers to put their soiled waste paper in the garbage because it would back up the toilets

I bet half those workers are illegal so they can't protest the shitty conditions otherwise they lose their job (while the people you consulted are making off with highway robbery from cut health costs and dodgy ethical codes)

It's rude to flush toilet paper down the toilet in a lot of cultures/areas because often people's plumbing might not be up to "first world" codes and you can plug their toilets. It's actually a sign of courtesy.

Re: Why don't mexicans flush toilet paper down the commode?
Even though I live in PA, there's a local food processing plant where they have the same problem. I know several actual legal American citizens who work there. They tell me the same thing. They never flush and they throw it on the floor or in the wastebasket. People are retiring early because they can't put up with it. They're afraid to use the bathroom. Management will do nothing about it because the perps are in the 'protected class' and are afraid of 'disparate impact' law suits.

because they are used to septic tanks and it's bad for the system to flush that stuff.

Septic tanks don't cope with a lot of paper, especially bleached paper.

Yep. When I was traveling around Colombia it wasn't easy finding public restrooms. If you did you had to pay to use them and also pay for toilet paper.

Hell, in China, they just squat right down next to the road and take a dump right out there in the open. No lie! My sister went to China and saw that first hand. She said she was glad to get back to civilization here, lol! She said the traffic would be going by and there was some man right out there next to the road using the bathroom. lol! I'm sorry but hell at least build a damn decent plumbing and sewage facility to handle this.

Re: Why don't mexicans flush toilet paper down the commode?
I just do what everyone else is doing in any given region. If the bin is full of tissue, I assume mine should go with it. If it's not I flush everything. If there's nothing but a shower hose next to the toilet trench, I assume it has a purpose lol.

Now my question is: when you get to the toilet that has nothing but a few wash clothes hanging around and no tissue at all to be seen, what are you supposed to do? Is there like a "guest cloth"? Were you supposed to bring your own? Do you share? O_o

You use what is available, or use your hand and wash up afterwards (no shit!!!).

Americans are spoiled. We have multiple toilets in our homes, we demand every store have a toilet, all hotel rooms have a private bathroom.

Every one of these places have roll after roll of toilet paper, a modern plumbing system, and a way to wash/dry your hands afterwards.

I remember the first time I stayed in Europe and I was like "WTF!! Where is the toilet in this hotel room!!!". I went to ask and someone staying there said it was just up the hall, but the shower was in use. Sick and disgusting.

Re: Why don't mexicans flush toilet paper down the commode?
A travel site for Central America does state that since the plumbing is different in those countries, you are not supposed to flush the toilet paper when you use their facilities. So then when those natives come to our country, they are probably still under the impression that they should not flush toilet paper. Old habits die hard, just like you would find it hard to remember NOT to flush the toilet paper if you were in those countries.

Yea I know tell me about it. My parents house built in 2003 has 4 full bathrooms. The only good thing is that there will always be a toilet there during holiday occasions and we can take as long as we want in there :)

It's the absolute truth! I often wonder this myself, there is no issue asking this qestion AC18717409, all your doing is making assumptions. I live in SD and that is always brought up in conversation with no "Ill Intent", I suggest you either seek help, or take a job where they need a know-it-all.
