SOâ€¦ I want to do a mini study â€“ with your help. Wherever you are in the world, the next time you use the loo take note if itâ€™s got a half flush option and let me know would ya? Letâ€™s name and shame.
I thought travelling through Asia for months would mean Iâ€™d be sure to come across some hell hole loos but they werenâ€™t too bad; I can still balance over a squat on tippy toes with the best of them.
The worst loo Iâ€™ve encountered so far is actually in Australia. Weâ€™d been driving for about four hours and nature wasnâ€™t just calling she was hollering from the mountain tops so when we came across a wicker hut in a forest clearing I very nearly wet my pants â€“ literally. The excitement soon passed. Inside was a wall of flies and behind the wall was the widest, fullest, most rancid long drop that has possibly ever existed. I swear I thought I saw the mass move as one. And, hanging from the ceiling and crawling across the walls were fat juicy spiders the size of Texas just waiting for a tasty morsel of shiny white butt. Clenching my cheeks, I backed out slowly (and very carefully), walked to the trunk of the car, hunkered down and did my business right there and then. And when a few cars drove by I didnâ€™t care one iota. It probably put them off their dinner for a few days but you know what itâ€™s like, when you need to go, you need to go.
Câ€™mon share your horror stories.
My problem with buying one in the USA is that if the parts go bad, well, you have to go to an expensive and difficult to find plumbing supply store, and where I live, they'd be lucky to have the parts at all.
I'm originally from Ireland (not to far away from yourself) and have always thought that if they had some way of collecting all the rain water there they could surely put an end to half the world's droughts!
Good to know they're doing their part for conservation to though, eh?
