Rest Assured

I need a job where I get to sit around and think of ridiculous names for products such as this:

rest assured

Yes, this product is for real.  I noticed it at work today when I was in the restroom.

Incidentally, can't the design of toilet seat covers be improved?  Am I the only one that finds these things CON-FUCKING-FOUNDING?!?!  I'd rather HOVER!

waxie half fold seat covers...

BORING! i wanna be rest assured when i'm on the crapper!

Caroline said...

hahaha...I always hover. I consider it my exercise for the day! I have nice firm quads...lol

diane said...

They're a waste of paper for people who are too lazy to wipe the seat before they sit down.
I actually know someone who gets paid to come up with names for products.

HOVER ahahahhahahah

also ASS is part of the word. ahahha

Dancing Branflake said...

Oh, I use seat covers and I hover because seat covers definitely do not to it's intended purpose. And I am reminded of Jim Gaffigan- "Hot Pockets!"

Big Red said...

LMAO @ ...love Maegan's comment!!

Thank god for these toilet seat covers, because at 30, I have the knees of a 92 year old (and have since I was a teenager) and cannot hover. Granted, many times I have to wipe down the seat and I have been known to "double bag" the seat, just in case.
Was that a little TMI? Who cares, we're talking about toilet seat covers!!

those things suck. hovering is way better.

the product that always cracks me up when i see the ad on tv is aciphex (asseffects is how it's pronounced) a heartburn/acid reflux med. cracks me the hell up.

Brandi said...

I am seat cover and slight hover type of gal. Have to have a hover because no matter what the covers will fall in the crapper.

Side note it would suck to have your last name be associated with a place where people shit.

I am sure that working at those companies involves lots of brain-storming meetings with people whom you'd probably want to kill immediately upon meeting them. I like jobs where social skills are optional.

Claire Kiefer said...

Wow. This is ridiculous. My opposition to ridiculous cliches would prevent me from ever succeeding in the marketing world, apparently.

Fueling Unicorns said...

That is funny. I took a picture in our bathroom last year of toilet seat covers they were called
"Yours Alone" like there is an alternative shared one ? gee thanks for the reassurance.

adrienzgirl said...

You are not alone in your love hate relationship with those damn seat covers! Hover hover hover!

Trixie said...

I put them down but I still hover. The design is HUGELY flawed

Christiejolu said...

I don't use them...Usually if I have to use a public restroom I really need to go...It is either fight with this thing and pee my pants or hover...I usually hover...

WendyB said...

I'm always fascinated by product names. When I was at the Wall Street Journal I wrote a story about lipstick names.

Missy said...

I carry these in my bag for The Girls! They have not Mastered the Hover! LOL

anotherfishinthesea said...

Hahah you would be awesome at making up names for things like this :) I am sure you could make some people laugh at the most random times...

Sister Wolf said...

What about calling them "Sit Your Ass Down" or maybe "This Won't Help?"

Kathryn said...

Wow, what a lame name - that would be a better name for adult diapers. Something like "Neat Seat", or better yet "KeepUFromKooties" would be more appropriate.

Char said...

i use 'em - i use them to wipe the seats before i hover. LOL

Christina In Wonderland said...

I usually see those things, stare bewildered, and then hover, hoping to God I don't accidentally touch the seat and get Herpes...

Melisa said...

I love how you saw this at work, took mental note and then scoured the internets to find a photo of the brand. such a blogger! hah. oh and the devil angel epic fighting cats.... THEY KILL ME

SabinePsynopsis said...

I've never used a seat cover (they don't have them here in Europe, filthy buggers, we are), which is why I definitely hover. But I think there is a whole new career waiting for you, DG!

Susan Erickson said...

these soak up the last persons dribbles and make you gag ....call them disgusting....and get out fast.....

C.B. said...

Haha! I can't hover for for fear of dribbling. Layer then sit I say. More women should sit because their aim is horribly off and they never clean up after themselves!

Vivienne said...

I want to know who names the porta-potties....

Kitty Stampede said...

i'm a hoverer extraordinaire.

BLECH, public washrooms quite often make me gag.

Diana said...

Ok, you are going to think I'm crazy but even if I'm careful, I noticed some bathrooms are cleaner than mine, as gross as that sounds. I wish I could have a cleaning person in my bathroom all the time. However, this doesn't go for the bathrooms at Target -_-

Lorena said...

I have to say I do not use these.
I rather hold it or just hover like you !
