or are toilets getting shorter? My feeling is that the general public is getting taller, but toilets are getting made shorter. I don't remember toilets being this short and perhaps it's because I have a jacked up knee that won't bend. I swear that sometimes when I go to a public toilet and sit down my my knees are touching my shoulders. I know this is at the very least the second pillsplace posting on toilets, but sometimes that is just where life is headed!
