To the son of a bachelor father

…. who designed the women’s toilets in office.

What were you thinking when you put the bum washer on the left hand side of the pot??????????

I’m planning on coming out of the loo and feeding you a laddoo with my own sweet hands.

  1. Serenity…

    That’s the first word came to my mind after reading your post… i.e. the look on the faces of all the left handed females in your office ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Oh I soooo love this post!!!! I’ve cursed them myself a billion times! Why the heck do they do that?!!! And they have the gall to call themselves architects and interior designers and all fancy names when they just cant pay attention to such simple details! Tsch.

  3. LOLOL….

    But those things have a fairly long hose right?
    one of the bathrooms in my parents’ house has the washer on the left due to a plumbing config that didn’t allow it to be mounted on the right…maybe something like that?


  4. Hahahaha, I know what you mean MM!
    I haven’t been leaving comments for a while but I have been reading.
    Wishing the Mad family the very best!


  5. Thank your lucky stars you have a women’s toilet. One place I worked at had a common toilet so stinky I stayed unrelieved for entire days.

  6. MM when we moved to our new office premises, we had to make a hulla for dustbins and tissues. The office manager thought it was cheaper to have a towel which would be changed every couple of days. We had to make a hulla for the men to not pee on the seats (We have unisex loos). We also made had to maske hulla for some hanging space for dupattas/ stoles.

    Me: yeah. they’ve never had to go to the loo and wonder what to do with dupattas or taken a bag in for a sanitary napkin and had nowhere to hang it!

  7. Ooops that got published before I was done…

    We also had to ask for liquid handwashes. And after about a year we have the men in our office toilet trained. We made a loud protest by not using the loos for a week – we’d go some nearby resteraunt to pee so finally the manager was forced to take a stand

  8. Haha..I’ve been working with my current company for close to 3 yrs now.. given its an IT company, we’ve had many cost cutting cycles…and surprisingly, or maybe not so surprisingly, the first thing to go, the minute they announce a cost cut, is the toilet paper…closely followed by the napkin disposal bags… and then, when it gets worse, the tissues in the common wash area..
    Why are we such an apathetic country, when it comes to hygiene?

  9. My first thought was – “Yewwwwww”!!
    Then, I couldn’t help but think how they are placed in our office toilets because I couldn’t

    So, I went and checked! ๐Ÿ˜€
    It’s to the right and not left! ๐Ÿ˜›

  10. my office still doesnt have a hook to hang dupattas and purses! older one had unisex loo and i had put up stinker (no pun intended) of a notice on every wall of the bathroom. worked for about one and a half day!

    and now that we have seperate loos, i see women can be terribly filthy too! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  11. er…spent 5 minutes thinking about it and i still don’t get why it is rant-worthy…let me think some more…but wanted to say i loved the two gaalis u couched in so sweet a language..:)

  12. ha ha.. never noticed this when i wored in India. But that is definitely not an issue in US. They decided to totally skip it.

    But loos in US come with a different problem. They are like stalls with alteast half inch gap between the door. Enough for anyone to look thru and find out who is inside or outside. The first time i ever used a restroom in US I was shocked. I kept changing each stall in hopes of finding one that would have no gap left after the door closes. Anyways got used to it now.

  13. Haha…
    At my office its quite different. There’s a uniformed housekeeper the whole day there in the loo. The minute you come out, she goes in, flushes it all over again and wipes the seat. Its so embarassing really. We’ve tried talking her out of it, but to no use. I wish, she’d atleast do that after I left.

  14. We had 2 loos on our floor, the right one with the sprinkle on the right and the left one with the sprinkler on the left!Guess which side had the line ๐Ÿ™‚

    And yes like Yuva said the housekeeper stays in the loo the whole day waiting for you to step out before rushing in-re flushing and wiping? by that time the color of your face is quite flushed as well..I think they may be trained in this way?

  15. Hey.. after reading this post called up my friend (architech) and asked him why such foolishness.

    He says.. they have tissues in the left ๐Ÿ˜€ !!

  16. I bet the guy that installed it was an idiot – was probably facing the wall and said OH…this is my right side. Morons!

    I remember the days of yore when we’d walk to the nearest mcdonalds to use the loo because the ones in college sucked!

  17. oooh…I just love the title…love it. Regarding the post…it took me a while thinking ‘problem kya hai’. After all left hand is the one thats supposed to do the action, right? ๐Ÿ˜€
    I am so used to TP now, that when in India I carry a roll in my bag wherever I go ๐Ÿ˜€

  18. What was the bachelor who designed our floor’s toilets thinking when he…
    1. Designed a women’s loo with NO ventilation?
    2. Designed the guys’ loo with multiple latrines and ONE urinal… which is right next to the sink so if someone wants to pee, he will have all the hand-washers leaning over him?
    3. Designed the women’s loo with half the water-taps(no bum-washing jets here, lol) on the left side and half on the right? Overly egalitarian, anyone?
    (He might be reading this blog, but… whatever ๐Ÿ˜› )

  19. It is probably a carry over from Indian customs like using your left hand at the loo and the right hand for eating..
    since the health faucet is (presumably) an Asian invention, it would be interesting to see where it is placed in other Asian countries..

  20. Lol ! so funny ! specially the want to feed them ladoos ! haha! This is what is called โ€œway with wordsโ€ ๐Ÿ˜€
    N oh..iโ€™ve been stalking your blog last couple of days Iโ€™m tempted to type a view/ thought on several posts but am refraining from doing so , โ€˜coz itโ€™s a topic thatโ€™s done n dusted. Also wonder why you donโ€™t write posts like this anymore, Guess the babies have grown up and you have gotten busy?

    Donโ€™t mean to sound greedy or nosy but will you be willing to share your old blog url and password with me or is that a no-no? I would love to read more of your writing and opinions โ€˜coz if there is one thing that you are, it is opinionated and confident. N I say that as a compliment.. Of course, thank you for sharing this space with all n sundry ๐Ÿ™‚

And in your opinion....
