Toilet trouble

Gulls, Bouys, and the funniest thing I've read for a long time. 

https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2018/apr/19/why-is-going-to-restaurant-loo-so-tricky-gender...

Next up, visiting a Tesco toilet with a banana on one door and a pair of melons on the other? Funny

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.

Re: Toilet trouble

I remember the toilets in France back in the 90s, they were just toilets, no male or female ones, just toilets, they had urinals for stand-up jobs, toilets for sit-down jobs, and sinks to clean up after them, simple, it's just the perves that make such a thing a difficult idea, especially in this day and age with smartphones and spy cameras being rife, not that segregated bogs seems to stop the use of such things according to the internet...

Re: Toilet trouble

I remember a French public toilet in Concarneau in the late 70's - it had separate entrances at either end for ladies and gents, but both sexes actually met in the middle (those of UK origin usually having slightly worried and bewildered looks on their faces! Cheesy)

Re: Toilet trouble

On reading that article,it was obviously written by a woman, so my question is...

(Quote from said article).  "All men’s toilets are disgusting"

Oh yes lady? And how would you know?

Re: Toilet trouble

Tip for using those French 'hole in the ground' toilets - take your keys and mobile phone out of your pockets first! I almost lost mine once. Shocked

Is this topic going down the pan?

@Pete11 Jay Rayner (the author) is definitely male - but I admit he does come over as a bit of a fishwife occasionally.Smiley

Which way does the brush rotate?  i.e. does it flick the [-Censored-] backwards (or forwards)?  UndecidedSmiley

Choose all or a mixture of the above. Embarrassed

Re: Toilet trouble

@rongtw  That contraption looks positively scary.  "Say goodbye to toilet paper!" it says in the advertisement, whilst the box says "Say goodbye to costly toilet paper!"  I've never saluted my toilet paper, be it on first meeting or on leaving its humble abode.  I wonder whether Debrett's has a chapter on toilet paper etiquette because I need to know if I should say goodbye to all toilet paper or just the costly variety.

Oh well, back to the torn up news paper nailed to the back of the toilet door. Undecided

Re: Toilet trouble

There was a bar near me that did exactly the same thing - just had the male/female symbols.

Luckily I know which is which, sorry being a bit smug here Smiley

The confusion it caused. I was with a friend and had to tell him what symbol meant it was the male toilet Grin
