    Eh? My loo says absolutely nothing about me according this pile of otter bullocks in the 'article'.

    I think it makes sense. I am doing most things right, it appears.

    I've no idea why, but the word 'lavatory' fills me with shudders and reminds me of the austere public toilets of the 1950s and 60s. Ughhhhhh!!!!!!!!

    I don't use that word. I use "loo". I agree about lavatory and your image of it!
    All you need is this to go with it:

    Doesn't say anything about the size of the spiders you should keep in the dunny.

    My loo says that there is a hardworking woman doing things right but that her children haven't yet learnt to follow her example.

    Or whether the snakes should be colour-cordinated.

    I'm American, so call it the 'bathroom', apologies. Nice framed 1940s adverts on the wall, a black and white winter photograph poster of central park and fresh towels. So far, so good but no mention of Thomas the tank engine shower gel, the collection of yellow ducks and the messy hidden bits under the sink - I blame the toddler and the cat.

    I refuse to start worrying about the etiquette of my bog until such time as I can enjoy the privacy of it without being watched by a baby or having one of the others barge in to ask me questions or, if I remember to lock it, push drawings to admire or permission slips to sign under the door.

    I think you're fine to call it the bathroom as it sounds as though your loo is in a bathroom.

    I have a little confession to make. When my son was being toilet trained* I used to pop a little plastic duck in the bowl for him to aim at. :oops:. It did at least save me from having to have a non-posh pedestal hugging mat.

    *or should that be loo trained?

    I find it's always fascinating to learn how other people live. Have you ever tried taking a bath with a partner in the pan? I'd imagine it to be both rather cozy and exceedingly refreshing if flushed.

    Lavatory or the slightly twee ‘loo’ are always acceptable and used by those from stronger social backgrounds, or those who ‘get it’.

    I feel like I've soiled myself even reading that. Why is it only posh people who give a siht (pun intended) about what you call the place where you void your bowels? Bit of an unhealthy obsession I reckon.

    It's the room you poo in ...... who cares? I'm guessing here because I would not click on a Mail link but did the so called etiquette expert have a good sneer about quilted or coloured toilet paper and folks who call it a 'toilet'? Yawn. Imagine him / her at the pearly gates responding to the question 'What did you do to enrich life on Earth?' ....'Well actually I was the etiquette expert for the Daily Mail' ....Going down......

    Classy eh?

  19. vannie

    vannie Star commenter

    Yes but is the paper quilted??? Or is it torn up pieces of Daily Mail? Preferably the 'etiquette' section - as seen in all the best 'lavatories'.

    I only use the highest quality. So good, in fact, that it tends to go quickly.
