Don’t get me wrong… Sit or Squat is a great idea.
Nature occasionally reminds us that we are not Xs made of arms and legs, but instead, fundamentally, we are tubes, Ingesting at the top and exgesting at the bottom. Being cultured tubes, we tend to do our exgesting in private, and have created a range of social systems and archetectural adaptations (toilets) to promote this.
Sadly, a public toilet is not always close at hand, and our tubular natures can sometimes make such an installation’s discovery of a moment of singular, indeed primary, importance. A map of these conveniences, would be very useful, as would a rating system for determining if one’s need is great enough to endure the inevitable horrors waiting within.
The problem comes in when, using the application, I find myself wanting desperately to report a particularly squatty “Squat” toilet, when I find that currently one may only rate the toilets already mapped. I must confess that I don’t see the point of this. Surely, the job of mapping every toilet in the world is beyond the reach of a single small app development company, even when it enjoys (as it proudly indicates) the backing of the Charmin corporation.
A fact that became obvious when I next desired to find the closest toilet to Paccar Hall. Sit or Squat told me that I should be walking several blocks to the UW Medical center.
I tried the Hall’s second floor, and have not opened the app since… to either Sit or Squat.
