Story of Public Toilet

Its really a wonder what kind of issues public toilets can throw up. Two issues that is almost intolerable... especially the first...

Issue One: Cheeky Uncles (Usually quite old)..

Thankfully these type of people are a minority... These people, trying to peep across urinals, can't mind their own business... Such creeps. You would think they feel that they aren't obvious in their peeping ethics.

Just the other day I was at a heartland shopping center toilet, I saw one uncle, probably about 50-something going 60 years old.... He kept turning his head side to side, looking around and sometimes even stretching his neck, trying to mind OTHER people's business.... The guy beside couldn't take it and left. I exited too. Couldn't tolerate that cheeky old guy...

Issue Two: Doors

You really wonder what are doors for....

Doors are suppose to keep what happens inside a particular area from what others aren't suppose to see.. So then I wonder, why do they put a stopper in front of the door keeping the main toilet door permanently opened.... So whatever activity that happens inside... No wonder nowadays, newer toilet designs do away with doors...

However, doing away with doors means a risk of people entering the wrong toilet...

For example, at a shopping center along orchard road, one guy came out of the male toilet and almost walked straight to the female toilet if not for the few of us who shouted out...

Toilets... one can wonder how many events can be associated with it....

Hahahahahahahahahaha.

These old men must be really bored or really curious.

I'd find the situation too weird to tolerate too.
