Anyone else suprised that this thread is stil going?
I am still waiting for my popcorn Joyfulgal)


Side story to send this down an a similar avenue:

When my girlfriend (at the time) and I went to Paris for Valentine's Day a few years back - we needed to take the train to my Uncle's house. We had some time before the train departed, and I ran to use one of the pay toilets. A guy was walking out, so I walked in - did what I needed to do - and was just zipping up when the lights went out.

This was followed by soapy water spraying all over the place (the sanitation process). I washed my hands (in the dark) and then tried opening the door. I wouldn't open. I WAS STUCK! I stood in this dark pay toilet for close to 45 minutes, waiting for either someone to pay to go in - or here my pleas for help.

Finally, this woman dropped some change in the entry - and I scared the crap out of her as I jumped out - relieved and willing to pay her for her use. Shocked, she stood their with a blank stare - and then shut the door to use the toilet.

Meanwhile, my girlfriend was sitting in the train station cafe - wondering where I was - and checking out French guys (hence, EX-GF)!!!

Prolly one of my favorite moments in my life.

I'm not surprised--people like toilet humor. They just do. It's a fact of life that we must all accept. This is the most viewed thread on page 1 after reality TV shows and the randoomdumdumthing.

What movie are we seeing?

yes pay toilets is a weird concept

you know what grosses me out? When people come out of the stall and wash their hands with only a little rinse of water, and don't use and soap, even though there is plenty . A couple of weeks ago I used the last of the toilet paper in a stall and there was a woman waiting to use the bathroom so when i came out i told her that the stall was out of paper. She says, "that's alright" and goes in anyways! What was she going to do use her hand ? There were to other stalls, why didn't she just wait? Freak.

my friend went to Thailand and there was no toilet paper. Just a little jug of water next to the toilet.




Edit: Zoney, was your gf not concerned that you were gone for 45 minutes??!!

First off, ILLM - you are complaining about people (women) only using water? I would say a good chunck of men NEVER wash there hands after using the bathroom.

And. sweetthing, this is just one of the many reasons why this is an ex-girlfriend.

Eww. Did I already post about the man I saw when I worked in this small town supermarket? From the doorway/register area you could see clear across the highway to the train station. He was a local and known for being weird, alway with a smoke dangling out his mouth. He sauntered in to the mens with a cig dangling and came out 30 seconds later with a cig dangling out.
