Reminds me of a time when a mate of mine was queuing to use the bog in Heathrow airport. An Asian gentleman left one of the cubicles and had neglected to use the flush lever. My pal, disgusted by the chap's lack of attention, gave him a right bollocking, frogmarched him back into the cubicle and in no uncertain terms, educated him in the traditional British custom of flushing the bog.

Welcome to Britain

Let's hope that he hadn't walked into a cubicle that hadn't been flushed beforehand and walked out in disgust at the culture that was growing in there!

Welcome to Britain


I remember a similar thing happen'd on the Irish ferry toilets, They must have thought we were passing South East Asia,
 
Student, J Trott, And, T Coker,
I recon the journalist who wrote that article was just looking for students with toilet related names,

The cost of the posters will be paid back ten fold in the reduction in cleaning and smashed bog seats. UK bog seats are not designed to have people standing on them. Our Facilities team used to replace a minimum of 2 each week till it went into the "agency" worker induction.
