  1. That makes sense I suppose! I liked the little extra twist there though with the closed toilets...
  2. I don’t particularly mind telling someone or even asking them if I can go, as long as there’s little chance of then not being able to go, and them then knowing how badly I have to go for however long it takes to get to somewhere where I can go (if that makes sense!). That’s what makes me uneasy, someone else knowing that I need to go but can’t. I’ve never understood why - perhaps because of how awkward or even guilty I feel if I’m with someone else who clearly needs to go but can’t! I suppose, whether it’s at work or on a long car journey, it’s more likely to be a case of having to make the most of an opportunity when it presents itself rather than waiting until a certain level of desperation is achieved, although I very much like the idea of there being no such opportunities by the time the situation is critical 🙂
  3. Very brave! I love it. How much further would’ve you had to go if you’d stayed on the bus instead of getting off early? It’s always nice to wonder whether there’s someone on the same bus or train as me in a similar position though!
  4. That’d make sense! Most bowl-type urinals have them too (some newer ones are “waterless”), and they seem to work on the basis of just about filling the bowl up, the flow rate in from the cistern far exceeding the capacity of the outlet. That can be a problem if you happen to be using it at the time, thus adding to the flow into the bowl and bringing it perilously close to the edge!
  5. I’ve seen trough urinals with dividers, but I don’t think they’re all that common. Most (?) do have a flush though, just that it’s on a timer rather than something that people operate for themselves each time they’ve used it. There’s an old one near here (an original one that’s been preserved but very much in working order and used by the public, although you often see ladies wandering in because they think it’s just a museum piece!) with a high-level cistern and a chain flush though, which is strangely satisfying.

    Too good to be true and content warnings

    I really wouldn’t worry about it. If it’s real, put it in the forum for real experiences. If anyone doubts it, it’s their problem and not on you to prove otherwise! There’s one or two that I’ve read that have indeed seemed rather unbelievable, and indeed some that have been called out on it. Life goes on though. With the stories and other content that you’ve posted already, which sort of sets the scene in advance, I’m pretty sure that it’ll come across as genuine anyway 🙂
  7. I’ve never understood what they’re hoping to achieve with that design. I find it bad enough that I can clearly hear other people coming and going, and see feet under the dividing walls. It hardly seems worth having a door at all if you’re going to leave big gaps that you can see through, when it’s so easily avoided by having an overlap just like pretty much any other door.

    Public Transport Desperation?

    Thanks for taking the time to write that one up @Mbgpeelover, it’s a fantastic scenario (although the ticket inspector perhaps didn’t think so!) and even more so as it’s quite close to home personally. If it’s not broken toilets, it’s toilets that have been left in such a state that they’re pretty much unusable!

    Public Transport Desperation?

    I can't think of a time when I've been enormously desperate on public transport as a passenger, but I love the possible scenarios and I've written a few posts about things that I've seen when I've been out and about. I'd love to know more about that one!

    What does W.C. mean in omo drawings?

    I approve! It’s good to see those words being used ‘properly’...

    Fair play to you, you very nearly beat me! Only a few minutes in it. I’m getting myself ready for a three hour journey back now. A bottle of Coke now, more tea to follow....

    Well done for lasting through my journey to work at least ? I’m just about to set off for a three hour journey anyway, with a cup of tea already made and a flask to top up on the way. Wish me luck! Can you outlast me, Gemmy?

    I have to set off for work now unfortunately. Hopefully you’ll be able to wait until I get there in an hour or so ?

    Are you aiming for a particular time, or just seeing how it goes for now?

    Disabled Bathrooms

    Some possible explanations. It seems almost routine in most Wetherspoons pubs (for those who actually like them...), where the rest of the toilets are usually located up at least two flights of stairs! Even though they’re meant to be locked by the special key, people generally make sure that they don’t shut the door behind them... The size is probably a factor for some people. They’re just so much easier to move around in. Availability is an obvious one. We have toilets in individual rooms off a single corridor at work, three marked as male and three marked as female. One of each is enormous and marked for disabled use (and has all the grab rails, alarms etc.). Some people prefer those to the smallest of the other two rooms. Personally I’d only use it if the other two were occupied (in preference to those marked for the opposite sex, although I’ve used those before too!). I don’t think we have anyone who’d *need* to use the disabled one though! I’d hate to use a disabled toilet in any other context though, especially for anything more than a quick visit. The thought of having to leave to face a disabled person who’d had to wait for me to finish would be unbearable!
