Yes I know it sounds dumb but, if during your working hours you go to the toilet, technically, you are getting paid for it. 💩
Alright, lets say you you earn $10 an hour and during those 8 hours of daily work, you go twice to the bathroom, for around 10 minutes each time.
Then a simple multiplication shows that your “poop time” is worth around $3.34 per day!
10 bucks an hour ≈ $1,67, for 10 minutes.
Right? So if you do this everyday, during an year, (taking in consideration that you work around 22 days a month), then you get an astounding $881.76 dollars a year, just for pooping!!
Your poop is worth the same as an iPhone 10!!
NFC tags + Zapier to the rescue
Well I wanted to know how much 💸 I was making just by going to the bathroom during working hours and I needed something to keep track of my “going and coming”.
I started by writing in a excel sheet but that was really not what I was looking for.
Since I didn’t want to fill a Google Spreadsheet every time I went to the bathroom, I end up creating a Zapier integration with Google Spreadsheets, that would have an exposed web hook, which would be used by tapping the NFC tag.
It was a simple webhook that would store something like this:
The important part is the
event_value which would work as a toggle, in which True means “Going to the bathroom” and False “Coming back”.
I just wanted to have one tag, which I would tap with my phone and make the POST request to the Zapier webhook.
So, I just end up creating a new task on “NFC Tools” app that would make an HTTP Post request to Zapier with the expected
Well long story short, I made $134.39 during a period of 8 months.

Also, realized that I spend an average of 10 minutes in the bathroom, which according to infographicsarchive.com, its alright.
Dont know why you would want this, but if you want to check the original data, you can download the dump here 😅: nfc_log.tsv.
