Toilet Tour Guide

By PaisleyJade - Monday, May 03, 2010

I am thinking about starting my own business... as a tour guide for public toilets in my city.

Would you believe that I just about know where every toilet is in every shop/park/restaurant where we live.  I've discovered toilets that we never knew existed, even though the shops have been around since before I was born... all thanks to Miss 3.

You see, ever since toilet training began last year, Miss 3 has an obsession with making sure she checks out every toilet in most stores (and homes) that we visit.  She often comments about the different types of toilet paper, whether the public toilets have hand towels or hand dryers, if the soap is runny soap, frothy soap or hard bars of soap... the list could go on.  I find myself having to answer complicated questions about why buttons are here and what that container in the corner is for over there.  It's like she's on a toilet tour... and I'm her tour guide. 

If we are in a shop and she sees a toilet sign you can be pretty much sure that in 2 seconds time she will tell me that she needs to go.  I've lost count now of how many times we have been hanging out in dirty public toilets admiring the facilities (or lack thereof) when I could be somewhere a lot more exciting.  And the most frustrating thing is that most of the time she doesn't really need to go.  Arrgghh!

So if you are someone who lives locally and are stuck in town with an urgent toilet need, feel free to call/text me and I will show up and give you the complete toilet tour with a thorough knowledge of which loo is closest to your location, which has the nicest facilities and soaps etc. for a rather cheap rate.

And I'll be training her up to take over the family business for me one day too... since toilets are her thing.

Don't forget, if you haven't entered my giveaway already, go here to go in the draw to win a robot softie all for yourself!!

    love the red toilet!
    yup I was just like that as a kids...oh I annoyed my father to no end
    i just HAD to check them out...not sure why
    I like to wash my hands
    see if they had a hand blower...those weren't as readily used back in the day
    on that note I do have to say all this non-touch stuff is annoying AND what about those blowers that literally blow you away!!!

    opps I digressed...anyways i get the little Bubbles obsession.....don't worry she will grow out of it...and really it is very helpful don't you think?????

  12. Awesome! In A local paper where I live every week theres a lady who goes into public toilets and restaurant toilets and rate them on lighting and cleanliness and atmosphere...its hilarious! So yes a tour guide would be the next step!
