Whether we like to admit it or not, the majority of us have spent a decent amount of time in the bathroom at work as a way to pass time during the workday.
Well, the old fashioned way of wasting time in the bathroom is going to come to a halt at some point. At least that’s what British startup StandardToilet is attempting to do.
The startup has dedicated its time to create a toilet that is uncomfortable to sit on. Meaning people will be forced to hurry up on the toilet instead of wasting time on their phone.
Like you’d expect, workers from all over are very annoyed and upset with this sort of product. Although it’ll be loved by a lot of bosses and managers alike, people are ticked off by the startup.
For example, one Twitter user stated:
“Let’s destroy StandardToilet and all who work there,”
Actor, Dave Vescio, wrote in another tweet:
“Say goodbye to comfort breaks! They say the main benefit is to employees in improved employee productivity.”
The toilet itself costs between $200 and $650 and has been in talks with several different companies. StandardToilet Founder, Mahabir Gill, explained how the goal of the startup isn’t to annoy workers but to help businesses save money. Gill told Wired:“[Its] main benefit is to the employers, not the employees, It saves the employer money.”
