Potty Talk

In a perfect world everyone could read the eye chart and follow the directions. PLEASE!












Wouldn’t your preschooler have fun with this toilet paper holder?



Did you know your bathroom contains a hidden college fund? These cardboard rolls appear to actually be a real commodity!




So, if you can’t beat’em… or is it, why not apply reverse psychology? Did you know that “bathroom” is American speak and our Canadian neighbors prefer “washroom”. It seems to me that North Americans, unlike much of the rest of the world tend to avoid the word “toilet” all together. Correct me if I am wrong, please. Heading south of the border for Spring Break? A handy phrase to take along is: Dónde está el baño? Visiting Australia? Another quick and helpful lesson for you: if a bath or shower is not needed, ask for the toilet, restroom, loo, john, dunny or thunderbox. However, in polite society, toilet or loo is most preferred.
