While talking to a friend yesterday we came on the subject of toilets.
For me it is very important to have a toilet around and clean.
Last month when I was in B’lore,we made a road trip to Mysore. I was pleased to see there were toilets all across the stopping points and at the sight seeing places. And the best thing that I liked about them was they were very basic types but very very clean despite being public toilets. Something which is very rare across the country. Usually the condition of the toilets is not that good-there would be no water or no cleanliness or no doors or all of these 😦
Having a cleaner/usable toilet in the vicinity makes the road trip / shopping experience / sight seeing tension free for me. Cause I can’t use a dirty / unclean toilet and you know what happens when you don’t use the toilet for a long time 😉
Until few years I dreaded using the train toilets and I don’t have to elaborate here about the conditions of our train toilets. Yes even if that means A/c coaches. They are just a bit better than the sleeper coaches but still not very clean all the time,sigh!
So while I was telling this to my friend yesterday, she said I’m weird that I give SO much importance to a toilet. As per her, what the heck, it’s just a toilet after all!
May be she is right. May be I give out of proportion importance but that’s how I am. If we randomly go for a trip and don’t pre-book the hotels I’ve to make sure the toilet is a good one in the room or we skip that hotel..yeah laugh at me!
How important it is for you to have a clean and usable toilet when you are traveling,visiting a mall/theater or on a road trip?
