[NEEDS SAVES] Use toilet interaction not completed in queue

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.67.45.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Seasons, Parenthood
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have multiple actions queued before and after use toilet or watch TV (both interactions are not working properly).
What happens when the bug occurs? Sims have use toilet in queue, don't complete the action (usually just automatically/autonomously deleting the action from their queue with no attempt made to complete the action) and move on to next action in queue. The same thing happens with the watch TV interaction. All other interactions are unaffected.
What do you expect to see? TOILET: I expect the Sims to use the toilet, fully filling the bladder bar back to green, and move on to the next queued activity. TELEVISION: I expect the Sims to watch TV and then move on to the next queued activity.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I find this bug tends to happen more with toilets on the first level of the house, but it sometimes happens with bathrooms on upper levels as well.

@LJoy8 I tested this on my save and have no issues with them using the toilet even if queued with multiple things.

Can you duplicate this in multiple houses/saves/families ?

I've had this happen even without actions queued after it. The Sim goes to the toilet, sits/stands briefly, then stops. If I queue it again it works fine. It's an intermittent issue but it's happened to my sims in multiple houses and saves.

I've never noticed before today, so I don't know if it came with the new patch. My sims will always go to the toilet when instructed but they don't always wait until the bladder bar is full before they go to their next queued task. So far this has only happened with a couple of elders on vacation. I'll try to report back if it continues on their home lot or with my next household.

Okay I think I'm seeing something like this but I feel like it might be a symptom of the simulation lag issue. I have noticed that after queueing several interactions in the bathroom (for example: clean toilet, wash hands, use toilet, brush teeth) and then checking up on them a bit later I see that the sim's bladder motive has gone up but not all the way. They also may or may not have the confident moodlet from brushing teeth. I usually play with more than one sim so it's sometimes hard to catch these but I've noticed a lot of stuff disappearing from action queues lately, as in it has started to happen more during this spring (2021). Sometimes you can clearly see stuff dropping from the queue, especially in conversations but some of the cases I've only seen indirectly, like this bathroom example where clearly the sim used the toilet but interrupted the action. It's not completely new but it has gotten Significantly Worse lately.

Could anyone experiencing this issue possibly share a save file where you've seen it occur? You can DM me a link to your saves, thanks so much!
