cubicle complaints …

19 Sep

For some reason tonight takes me back inside the ladies loo. I’m beginning to wonder why I do so much ‘wondering’ in there…. but it can be a fascinating place sometimes.

I popped into the poolside facility at the moderately swanky (as opposed to really swanky)conference hotel, and was stunned to find several shower cubicles alongside the loos; each complete with every pampering potion you could ever need… shampoos, conditioners, body wash …you name it, it was there. Then there were hair dryers and straighteners plugged and in ready to go at each vanity basin ….and …wait for it … 2 sets of uber-modern bathroom scales,  one on each side of the vast tiled space.

While I wondered who would really use those scales…I was impressed with the effort and the decor of the whole place.

Surely if the interior designer had gone to all that effort to accommodate every whim, they could have installed some sort of facility for an emergency supply of loo paper (or just left a spare roll within reach – I mean, how hard can that be ?).

    Yeah, typical…missing the essentials, know how you feel…..

    Fortunately for me having lived in Asia for the past 17 years I now know to always have a stash of toilet paper or tissues in my bag. It’s just become a standard requirement. Here no one changes the empty toilet rolls until the next day.

    I have a lot to say on this issue in Asia but won’t continue as it just gets even more disgusting….and you may lose readers!

    A-hem……….So how’s the weather in your part of the world?

      LOL … I’m fascinated. Iv’e spent a small amount of time in SE Asia, so have some amazing visuals in my head right now.
      Weather here on East Coast Aus is perfect Springtime.. pleasant low 20’s in the day with chilly nights …. However my week in the Centre was a little different … pleasant but hot (minus the Asian humidity) 😉
