What is it with people and public toilets? No matter where you go, supermarkets, department stores, roadside cafes or airports, it can take up to five toilet stalls before you can find one that you can use.
The number of times I’ve looked down into bowls that haven’t been flushed is a disgrace. Let alone the toilet paper left strewn across the floor. Come on; all you have to do is pull down a handle or push a button. Doesn’t need much intelligence to do that now, does it?
Next comes the toilet paper or the lack of it. How many times have you sat down and there’s either no toilet paper or a few tiny squares, which are not enough for you to use so there’s a mad scramble in your handbag for tissues.
A pet hate of dear daughter mine is the fact there are never enough toilets in public venues. The queues are annoying. There should be double the amount on offer as women have to use a cubicle, not like men who can stand and run.
Speaking of men’s toilets my lovely husband complains about men who don’t lift up the seat and pee on it or they do lift it up but then miss the pot altogether leaving a smelly mess behind.
Now that I’ve started I’ll finish or so the saying goes... taps! Yes! That’s right taps. How many different ways are there to turn on a tap? All you need to do is visit a variety of ladies’ WC’s and you will find out.
In some toilets you need to be a member of Mensa to work them out. Are they a push and hold or just a push? Do you turn or is it touch sensitive? If it is a touch sensitive one; will it ever turn on? Then you have the next question; will the water ever stop running?
Soap dispensers often cause me a great deal of stress as well. Do you find that the dispenser that you have chosen to use is always out of soap so you have to search for another, which usually involves disturbing others who are washing their hands at the same time? Not a happy place!
I tell you using public conveniences is sometimes just SO difficult.
Thought for the day: Remember some days are more perfect then others.
