Yep.

That's why I usually just pee on the floor.
Yeah, me too.

Oh... Floor..? I thought you said p... Oh. Never mind.

Another location of choice are the SBB waiting rooms by the tracks. (or at least they tend to smell like someone's been relieving themselves in there )
Or the stairwells in multi storey car park buildings. They always stink of stale pee too.

Re: To pay or not to pay-Migros city.

I am sure you are mistaken about having to pay. In the Migros Take Away in the Baden Metroshop you pay 1 chf for a jeton to use the toilet but at the same time you receive a voucher for chf 1 which is valid towards a purchase.

If you feel very strongly about the matter, why not post on Migros' community page? You can rant there (and if you are indeed wrong you will be told so).

Well I went to the restaurant in the new Migros city ( Zürich ). Wanted to go to the toilet and saw that the bastards want 1 Frank for the service. Thats offensive. I can't think of one restaurant in Switzerland that makes you pay a frank to use their toilet. So I did a high jump over the barrier.!Fick them.
Did you actually consume anything or just wanted to use the facilites ?

Yes I consumed. And I just made a post in the Migros Community. Let's see if I get any bites.

Migros pay for the cleaner's wage, the water, the electricity, & maybe the towels, so you could share the cost couldn't you?
Not if I buy something there or eat/drink at the restaurant.

It's called customer service. (I know it's an alien concept to many Swiss and some (too) long-time expats... )

Well I have been shopping in Migros for 20 years. I think that qualifies me for a free piss

There are many places in downtown demanding payment for the use of the toilet. BUT many places give a JETON if you order something and then it is free of Charge

If you are a paying customer, I don't see why you should be charged to use their facilities.

In many places in downtown Zürich you have to demand of the waiter a JETON for the toilet

Our local Coop has free toilets - they used to be open but kept getting vandalised. Now you have to ask the cashier for a key. I know some places like McDo's have a coin operated loo entrance, customers can ask for a "jeton" - non-customers stump up a chuff.

Maybe Migros City operates something similar?

Cheers,
Nick

I am sure they do. But have not yet been there since they re_opened -- Most of the CH Tamils now understand dialect, provided you speak clearly. So that language is not the problem really

I will collect some of those "jetons" and send them to Mercer, just in case they actually visit the country for the next quality of life study.
