Once in France I was pretty desperate for a number one so went into a public loo. I know, big mistake! It was one of the old fashioned 'squat' type loos, never mind on the seat, there was c**p half way up the walls!
Needless to say, I did a quick 360 and kept my legs crossed!

Need I say more?

We had a similar experience on the Ile de Rey. I don't think my wife or daughter have ever fully recovered. But I think these sorts of situations are the excpetion rather than the rule (apart from in France, of course).

Re: Toilet issues at work

As perhaps a final word on this, isn't it nice how LiB's poo' can bring us all together like this.

I hope you at least left it clean for the next guy.

That had to be the longest word in the world. No wonder I'm struggling with my German...

Re: Toilet issues at work

Funny enough, we can talk about toilet and all what goes in but we can't talk about breast, penises and butts without having the thread closed.

They have those in XL?
First a overdose of "toilet sensitivity" and now a possible (in dubio pro reo) overdose in "self evaluation". You definitely need to talk to somebody.

And you did this at work? This action must have taken ages. Interesting what people nowadays are paid for
And not only did the OP do all this at work, but he also wrote a long detailed story about it too!

Maybe he should Instagram it as well next time?

Are you lactose intolerant? That could be a problem in the toilet matter.

Re: Toilet issues at work

A toilet thread that lasts 6 pages (so far). That's telling on so many levels...
