Like many words this one does not accurately describe what I mean. I mean that I am afraid of a toilet not flushing, ie clogging. I didn't really worry about this before I had a sawdust toilet, although my younger daughter did, but now I am dreading pushing the flush lever in case of malfunction. I thought it had happened a few days ago at a job site but the toilet was the type that brings the fluid level to the top of the bowl before draining. I have always disliked that style. If I could I would drive everywhere in a motorhome so I could take my sawdust toilet with me.

It can happen and risk of splash back........and then I read somewhere that if you leave the lid up when you flush there is 'stuff' drifting up for several feet. Totally grosses me out now every time I have to use a flush toilet....and when I told a relative, I noticed the next time I was there all of the toothbrushes had those little caps on them
