If It's Yellow, Let It Mellow

Time to vent. (bad pun, see below for details)

Taiwan is an advanced country in most areas of life, not bathroom etiquette. They take the adage "If it's yellow, let it mellow. If it's brown, flush it down" way too seriously. My desk is about 20 yards or so from the bathroom at the office. At times, the smell emanating from the toilet is overwhelming. Do the parents in this country teach their kids not to flush the toilet after they pee?? They don't turn on the AC in the office until about 2:30 in the afternoon (the teachers arrive at 3:00), and it's usually pretty hot in the office because there is always about 50 kids running around producing lots of hot air. It's hot here. High temperatures and bowls full of urine don't mix well.
