The Sewer District Would Like to Remind You to Not Use Your Phone While on the Toilet

Posted By on Mon, Feb 25, 2013 at 11:11 AM


Today in helpful public service announcements: Wait to tweet 'til you're back in your seat.

That's the message from your friendly local Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District this week.

Via Michael McIntyre's Tipoff, other pleas from NEORSD aimed at keeping your cellie out of the pottie:

"Don't call from the stall."

"Don't post from the potty."

"Don't tap from you lap."

[Ed. note: This post was crafted while sitting in the stall in Scene's bathroom. Deal with it.]

After the jump, the lengthy and informative inforgraphic — 16% of phones have fecal matter on them! — with all the pertinent facts and figures.
