This woman was enjoying a well deserved break in Mexico when she decided to post a photo to her Twitter.
The woman in question is none other than Paula Sophia Garcia Espino and the photograph was one of her perched in the bathroom, wearing a pair of shorts.
But what got people talking was something very different. Take a look at the photo below. Can you spot it?
Whether you did or didn’t spot it, I don’t know, but even if you did, I’ll tell you what people are complaining about anyhow.
Look to the left of the photo, there’s the toilet. To the far right of the picture, there’s the toilet roll holder. Now what on Earth is that about?
While not quite as bad as going to the toilet and noticing you’re out of toilet roll (Flippin’ heck, I’ll never forget that monumental mistake, sitting on the loo in my girlfriend’s all girl uni-halls’ toilet, with the nauseating realisation as I noticed no roll), it does highlight some pretty large design flaws.
Now I’m no architect, nor am I a stylish homes designer, but it doesn’t take any level of genius to figure out toilet roll should be kept close to the toilet.
Not to be crude but what sort of psychopath takes a dump before standing up and taking a stroll to the other-side of the room to get the roll, never-mind the sort of weirdo who grabs the toilet roll before pooping.
Just what in the hell is going on here? And of course, Twitter users pointed out the flaw too:
Damn you gotta get up off the toilet and walk way over there to get tissue to wipe

As a member of a family who owns a long standing design, engineering, and architecture firm, this annoys me so much, how do you look at that design and go "this is good, this is how it should be"

The toilet paper roll is far so it's in reach when this happens. pic.twitter.com/XJOb3DPavn

Thankfully, Paula gave us some insight into the layout of the bathroom.
Speaking to Buzzfeed, Paula explained:
My aunt said that she doesn’t even use the rack under the toilet at all. She’s always on her phone for hours since she can charge it while she’s doing her business.
For other utilities like the hair dryer and stuff, she does find it annoying that she can’t be near the mirror. To be honest I never noticed all these odd things until people pointed them out.
She added how there was also a roll of toilet paper besides the loo too!
Recently, a similar story went viral after yet another peculiarity was spotted in the background of a picture:
So what do you see? Girl in a red dress holding a flower on the sidewalk (it looks like America so go with me). Anything else? Well, you’re clearly not looking close enough. Take another gander…
Still nothing? Well allow me to explain the mass debate we have on our hands here.
Elvira has almost 50,000 followers on Twitter alone so it’s no coincidence the photo itself attracted over 20,000 favourites and 3,000 replies – at the time of writing.
But it’s what the replies are about which is the talking point:
Where y'all got gas at for $2.21 a gallon? https://t.co/F2kJrzl3j5

Stealing all of the thunder from Elvira’s snap, one Twitter user asked:
Where y’all got gas at for $2.21 a gallon?
And that was it. That was that. That simple question changed everything and what unfolded was a civil war debate and discussion on the price of gasoline in 21st Century America.
