You need a child .. I have two young girls and they always need need the toilet at the worst time. In three years here I've never been refused once to use the toilet, bars, shops, restaurants, supermarkets, estate agents offices .. You name it, I've asked to use their toilet for the kids and they've always said yes, with a smile. And yes, a few times I have a pee myself while we're in there..

Some have no public toilet but they let me through to the staff area, no problems .. So either borrow a child or just ask anyways.
never worked in france but in general yes, I always use the kid when I need to go

Re: Not enough female public toilets in ZH

I never step into public toilets. Prefer to use them for a wee or a poo. Stepping in would ruin my shoes.

I would never step into public toilets ever. I have seen some things in those places that would turn your stomach and give you nightmares!! Train stations are the worse.

I would rather pay a few francs and sit and have a coffee or a drink and use the (usually) clean toilets in a cafè.

Or, as someone suggested, on the days that you know you are going to be out for a long time. Just drink less water. I doubt your healthy planning thingy will fall apart if you only drink two small glasses of water, instead of a litre.

Also at McDo's or BK, just ask someone for their bill with the code on. Loads of people have them just sitting on the tray. And don't even know there is a code for the toilets on it.

Sometimes the toilets are the step onto and crouch ones.

Bloody hell the bully's are out to play I've opened a can of worms, still there's not enough toilets. Period.
Bloody hell... especially during that time of month. Give the lady a break.

I don't think EF women are disagreeing with you, OP, we're just saying you need to be more resourceful because the mayor of Zürich isn't going to react to your complaint. I assume you've found a toilet in the meantime so your anger should have diminished to mild annoyance by now.

Use the apps suggested and make a note of where the good toilets are. Go pee in advance and make searching for a toilet an adventure. You may actually meet some very nice people on the way.

So true..unfortunately sometimes one really has to.
Btw, sometimes I drive my OH crazy if we travel by car and have to stop somewhere and then leave and stop again somewhere else because I just can't go there..

Re: Not enough female public toilets in ZH

Some people are disgusting pigs though. Think of the poor cleaning ladies that have to hose it down. How some people can cause quite such an explosion is amazing.

Re: Not enough female public toilets in ZH

One of my first experiences, without my mum, was going into the toilets in Geneva Train Station. I was 12.

I was met by a man masturbating in the cubicle. I remember, he turned round and asked me if i could help him.

My first encounter with an erect penis!! I ran. And almost peed myself.

That is probably one of the reasons i cannot stand public toilets. I have been in them since, but seeing poo smeared up walls, walking in pee, even seeing syringes, naked women trying to wash themselves etc.

3 odd francs for a coffee or the Mcdo thing is much better! Or hold it in till you can get home.

I have a friend, female, who has a phobia about all toilets that are not her own. And when we go out she drinks like a fish!! I have never seen her using the toilets in a bar or restaurant. She has an iron bladder!!

Yep, they should be given special reverences for having to put up with human pigs.
Even those who are working in hotels...I can only imagine what some people leave behind because the maids are going to clean everything anyway...
I will probably never have a cleaning lady even though we can afford it - I would clean before she would come to clean

Re: Not enough female public toilets in ZH

If you're in Geneva airport railway station, go to the bog in the airport itself. It's free in the airport section but you pay in the railway station.

How would you know that - you are a hermit that never goes out. To actually meet rather nice people. You're response to my invite was OTT. Doesn't matter, we had a laugh and and the cat wasnt there.
