are you a thrower or a flusher?

Why do some hispanics throw their toilet paper in the trash instead of flushing?

Are u a thrower or flusher?

I don't mean to offend anyone. Dh and his family do this I never knew of this before we were together.

That is not just a hispanic thing. It's also quite common in Europe. And South America.

Maybe actually America is the exception in the toilet world?

Because in Mexico they can't flush it in most parts. That's what my family told me, who are all from Mexico.

I flush.

Yeah what dancemom said. But on the flip side ever go into a public bathroom and someone shitted next to the toilet????im guessing it has something to do with the plumbing in Mexico and maybe those didn't have toilets? Idk. I know that this is a Mexican thing cuzz I would see it in predominantly Hispanic areas. I think its so silly, why not just go in the toilet???
