Extortianate Cost Of a Wee Wee

This am whilst walking da doggy i needed a wee wee or (in case this offends anyone) i needed to empty my bladder.

The entrance fee to engage in this activity had risen to 30p.
Yet the pigeonheads who need to empty their bowels pay the same fee and get free toilet paper.  Is that fair? Smiley

So the term 'spend a penny' has been hit by inflation.

Re: Extortianate Cost Of a Wee Wee

Rail stations managed by Network Rail now charge 30p per visit to the toilet (used to be 20p until a year or two ago), although on the plus side they are kept spotless… unlike, say, the toilets at Staines station (managed by South West Trains) which were free but, really, you'd only want to use them if you were absolutely desperate.
Edit: grubby toilets at a station called Staines… I've only just spotted the irony.

Re: Extortianate Cost Of a Wee Wee

When I was at Euston, on Wednesday, I simply asked the attendant to open the free disabled toilet which he did without question  Smiley
I'm not disabled but do, if questioned, have a card that covers me.
I can reclaim hospital car park fees but it's so much agro that I don't bother.

I don't as a rule.
Either I make sure I go before leaving the house or take advantage of facilities provided at many shops.

The Bus station toilets in Middlesbrough are Free, so is the toilets at the Cleveland Center/Mall, there are no toilets in the Hillstreet shopping centre, the toilets at the main Sainsbury's are Free, the toilets at the train station you pay to use them, and the remaning arier has no toilets, Middlesbrough over the years have closed down the toilets.  Sad
This is not good wen you need to go to the toilet in a hurry like I do from time to time, with me been borderline diabetic, and my lass is tipe 2 diabetic as well, so it is a case of hunt the toilet.

Just received a key that's supposed to operate the lock on most disabled toilets in the country  Smiley

Re: Extortianate Cost Of a Wee Wee

Beware! Lots of the RADAR toilets do not have a lock on the inside. (Also worth noting that they are not 'disabled toilets' they are just toilets with better accessibility.)

Thanks for that info - will be careful when/if I use the RADAR key.
