You pee, I pee, he pees, she pees

I celebrated the millennium here in London and I will always remember how it went. It’s a very fond memory not just because I spent it in a foreign land and watching fantastic fireworks in the chilly winter night; but also because of a very peculiar thing.

I remember the evening started with me and my uni-mates all stuck in the tube as there were delays everywhere. Not surprising considering the amount of people heading to central London at that time. Our arrival in central London was greeted with a barrage of people. We don’t know where were heading, we just followed the crowd.

It was after about an hour that some of us began to feel uneasy… we need to take a piss. Now, those who have been to London will know that there are 2 things which are akin to treasure in London. The first is a dustbin, and the other… toilet. Yes, you hardly find these two things in central London. I heard it was a measure to prevent terrorist placing bombs there.

So what do you do when a guy needs to go? Well, a guy will go when a guy needs to go. So a bunch of us made our way to the side of the road, headed to the back lane, behind all the tall buildings and you know what? That part of town turned into some giant toilet with so many people taking a piss! And… there were girls too. Hell, they didn’t really care… just pull down their pants and do what a girl needs to do when a girl needs to go.

That was not it…

As we walk further… and drink water as we walked along, the urge to go came again. But this time, there wasn’t any building we can go too as we were really at the heart of London and really nowhere to go. It was then that a friend of mine spotted a bush not too far away.

And so, we squeezed our way through the crowd and headed to that bush… quite a big bush I would say. It’s one where you can actually duck and walk into it, which was exactly what we did. And guess that… just as I walked in… I was greeted by 3 girls… squatting there… doing their business… and you know what they said to me?

“Hello dear… you gotta wait for your turn…”

- Ivan said...

Haha...certainly reminds me of the times I needed to find a toilet in London ;p

I only know of one public toilet around the central and that is at the Leicester Sq. Tube Station.

But these things happens all across the UK...hehe and it's easier to "let it go" since other places would not be as crowded as London ;p

PabloPabla said...

Wuah! I would probably freeze and can't piss when I see the ladies pissing next to me :P

frostee said...

Man that's hilarious! I thought that I only see this in parts of Delhi or Bombay.

Millinieum... Hmmm... I was in Amsterdam for 2 nights before heading up to NYC, and I tell you, you can get 'high' by just hanging out in the jam packed streets around Dam Square. And it was like flippin CNY or Guy Fawkes day or something! BUt it was one great party!! Wooo Hooo!

lynnx01 said...

Terra Shield said...

That's a good one. :D

suituapui said...

Gosh! For a while, I thought u've switched jobs...and are now teaching English - subject-verb agreement!!! When I was there, it cost MORE than 1p to pee, 2 ps in fact; yunno those public toilets with slots on the door and u've to put in the coins before it opens...and u can go in to do ur bizniz. So at that time, people should say, "I'm going to pee-pee!" How much is it now, I wonder?

P.S.: Eyew...I thought only people in Malaysia do that (ref. pix)!!!

Bee Ean said...

I really hate this. Each time I went to downtown/night clubs, I saw guys peeing, some even towards the car tires. I went to a big outdoor concern, and guys peed every way, girls waited for movable toilets. Don't drink if you know there is no toilet!!

Acute Critique said...

hahaha~! wait for your turn then. i totally agreed with the 'ladies first'. >.<

mrbherng said...

Saw a guy pee-ing into a bin in the DAY when I was in Sheffield a couple of years back. You can see the pee flowing out from the bin too.

Maybe that's another reason why no bins are seen around central London.

(There's quite many on the South Bank nowadays though)

whoalse said...

Hahaha....speaking of which during the days when I had to travel interstates for swim comp where there's no resting sites along the highway, we guys had to do what you did to allow the gals to use the "proper" male toilets in Petrol Stations.

Brings back memories

p/s: I took those sunset shots on my blog.

Alvin Lim said...

er...how come i so long here, i never seen such things b4? hahaha

suituapui said...

50p??? That's over RM3 just to pee once!!! I think I would just bring along a plastic bag! Or perhaps...I can just use a rubber band! ROTFLOL!!!

laundryamah said...

PurpLe~MuShRooM said...

Hmm.. I am glad in Shanghai, there are many public toilets. And I am really surprise that the public toilets here are really clean and the best part is.. it's FOC. No need to pay at all!! Can you believe China!
