I’m sure everyone have toilet woes.
It happens and must have happened at least once in our life or probably everyday too.
I’m sure we have the curiosity to open the closed lid of the public toilets.
After all there’s only so few cubicles and there’s so many people lining up.
So, why doesn’t one step into the cubicle and open that particular lid?
You know and I know what we’ll most likely encounter with.
Public toilets are patronized almost half a day and that is within non-stop mode.
When one comes out, the next goes in and so on and on.
There’s hardly for the cleaner lady to give it a routine check.
And when the flushes doesn’t work, the ignorance continues.
Peed over pee, wet tissues over lumpy ones, clogging the hole.
Worst is when there are solids and red liquid… uuurgghhhh
Don’t mind me but I accept those because they’re meant to be publicly used.
Hmm what about office toilets then? They’re no different because it shows how unaware of consciousness we humans are.
Below are a few examples of what I have encountered during toilet visits.. and most of them are in my office!
This morning, Javier was having a conversation with me. Well, actually the conversation started last night and thank goodness it ended this morning. He was telling me that the art glues I bought for him ain’t sticky enough. Not as sticky as the ones his kindy teacher uses.
So, I told him I would buy him one but he’ll have to describe to me how does it look like.
I asked him,
the size of the bottle
the shape of the bottle
the color of the glue, etc
He tried to explain to me but I didn’t get him. Silly me. I kept on asking does it have a sponge dispenser, was it long and thin, does the cap opens up or does it twists to open, is the glue invisible, is the tip pointy.. to his horror, he threw his tantrums and to my horror, he said, “Hai-ya! I’ll draw for you to see!”
Alamak, kinda like a slap in the face. I should have asked him to do that earlier. Why I didn’t think of it? I kept on asking questions, looking for answers. Well, I guess this is a lesson for me. So, to all parents out there, if you can’t get what your kids is saying or your kids can’t get what you preach, draw it out and explain. That would cut the time of debates and most of all, it’s really cute to find out how smart and creative a child can be when it comes to expressing their needs with art.
Hubby and I don’t always find time for ourselves.. well we do find time at home after work. We watch TV episodes together. I particularly love Ghost Whisperer whereas he likes Hell’s Kitchen. And then there are the ones where we share like CSI (Miami, Vegas, NY), Dexter, Lie to Me and recently Royal Pain.
There’s nothing like a good company before going to bed. But, the occasionally breakfast and lunch dates are pretty sweet too. So, one of the Saturdays, we left the kids with my in-laws while we went about sweeping the Bukit Bintang streets. We can never do this when kids are around, walking by the roadside and crossing the street never ever comes to mind. Because outdoors are pretty dangerous when it comes to the Golden Triangle and road users aren’t very friendly either.
So hand in hand, me with my handbag and Hubby with his camera, we combed the streets….
