WEEKEND FUNNIES


With Gattina & Shakira.

Just do a funny post, something which makes us laugh that's the most important.

And of course there also is


here at Me & My Memes

To pee or not to pee ?

On wednesday I went with my friend Ilona to the Belgian coast. Of course after a little more than one hour driving, first thing we did when we arrived was looking for a loo.
We couldn't go behind a bush on the street, because we are not equipped with the outhanging accessories for this purpose.

Finally we found a loo on the beach which looked like a camping car. In front of the door sat a woman and knitted. As soon as she saw us coming she stood up and wanted 50 cents ! In £ that would be 50 pee to pee ! We were surprised. I asked her if she had a senior fee for people over 65, but of course she hadn't. Reluctantly we both gave her 50 cents which made 1 € to do a wee wee ! For 1.50 € you get a coffee and free pee ! (Imagine you have 5 daughters !)

We were discussing this abuse in an urgent natural emergency situation, and then we started to calculate :

An average of 100 leg twisting women in loo need x 0.50 € makes 350 € per week, 1400 €/month or 16.800 € (21.323 $)/ year, for sitting around and knitting and from time to time put a new roll of toilet paper ? Of course I wouldn't clean, for that I would hire somebody ...



With a view like this on future clients, I sincerly consider to buy knitting needles and wool !

It costs so much to pee in Europe!?

I will remind myself to bring a plastic potty with me when I travel there. I can save quite a sum of money for my shopping then. haha.....

The pay toilets in Europe are a real racket but you did make it very funny.

At least most of the pay toilets in Europe are clean. Some of the "free" ones I've been to were so horrible, you would do better in the bushes!

Oh Gattina;) I just LOVE your turn of phrase in your posts. Hilarious post today! I can't believe your entrance to a public loo is so expensive. Have a wonderful weekend. (((Hugs))) Jo

With how often I have to pee I'd go broke in no time at all at those rates!

Here we call going to the loo 'spending a penny', but it has cost at least 20p for years! True inflation! And there are NEVER enough for the ladies!

ROFL! I think this sounds like a very lucrative business for you Gattina!

You know... when I was a little girl, I remember pay toilets in America. But we haven't had them for yeeeeeeears now! Here, we are FREE to PEE!
