>Admittedly, this is an odd topic of conversation. But, I feel that I know you well enough by now to bring it up and it’s been on my mind. I hate toilets here. There, I’ve said it. Let’s talk about why I hate toilets, shall we? There are numerous reasons, perhaps I should bullet them (my boss says all Arabs love bullets, do you?)…
- The seats and covers are held on by flimsy little pins and rods that don’t stay together. THis leaves them flapping around and constantly falling off.
- They barely have any water leaving little “presents” along the side of the tank (ewwww).
- There is no standardization on flushing mechanisms, so it can take some time to figure out how to make to flush.
- Some have two buttons and some have one with no explanation of what the difference is.
- Toilet paper is typically not flushed (again I say, ewwwww).
- Some people cheap out and, rather than having a bidet have a hose to spray yourself. Unfortunately, the ladies at my office spray themselves and leave water all over the seat. Allow to say once again ewwwwwwww!
Okay, so these are the primary issues I have with toilets in Jordan. If El 3atal and I decide to build a place at some point, I assure you, I’ll take a very active part in the toilet selection process. Oh, and I probably won’t waste space on the bidets. One for the guest bathroom and none in in the rest…
