Was he Greek? You can’t put paper in the toilets over there. There’s a disgusting bin beside the toilet that you have to stuff them in.

A vile but necessary practice.

This. And in almost every one of his posts on this website too. It's his predictable, creatively challenged trademark for at least ten years now eh, fluttering, around here. There's even a word for his obsession: scatalogical

That's the case with a lot of jacks in **** hole countries with substandard sewage systems. I refuse to use them and throw the paper in the toilet. The toilets always absolutely reek. It's normally a hot country too which doesn't help matters.

I think he was Morrocon, it was a small paper bin as well for the hand drying paper. like a mesh waste paper basket.

That’s just disgusting. Perhaps it was new to him? I’ve heard they favour the left hand in the desert states.

Must have been, it only happened after he joined.

I think HR were too scared to say anything to him for fear of been sued. You can't prove it.

You ever in Italy? The shïtters over there have a ledge at the back of them where the log rests until you flush it away. Bizarre and grotesque.

I have, Johnny. It’s the one, and possibly only, issue I’d have with Italy, outside of a sporting sense obviously.

They have it in a number of European countries. It does nothing for the air quality in the bathroom. The water is there for a reason, people don’t appreciate how much smell the water holds in.

Here’s a pro tip for you in future, put down some paper on the ledge before you take a seat. This means the feculence will slide into the water more easily after you flush and won’t leave any unsightly streaks. Some of the hotels don’t provide a brush in every bathroom.

Believe that was true.... lad working in, Finance...I think, was waiting for a free trap at the 1030 evacuation, when in rolls an Executive Officer and claims ‘privelege’.

Lad says he blew out a load like a bolt of otters going off a riverbank, and left the pan like the Derby Co. goalmouth in the 1960s.

Fcuking whack of stale salmon and peanuts was vile the lad said.

Like a bears den after a winter hibernation.....fcuking rank.

You don’t get out much, do you? Get a group of lads together and inevitably the conversation will turn to toilets and what goes on within them.

You get this on office, club or social nights out. Someone will always have some funny or gross story to share. Harmless fun.

I should clarify, when I said “toilets and what goes on within them” I meant using them for their intended use, not anything sordid or unsavoury like “cottaging” or “glory holes”.

The hum in some government office bogs would make a grown man cry.
I learnt quickly to use a different jacks on a different floor if I saw certain people leaving as I was entering. One such person had the surname King which I extrapolated out to King of the Stinging Minging Ring....

I'd say your man eventually flushed it or put it into a zip lock in his backpack.
It's a thing in a lot of countries. When I was in Thailand there was always a bin as they don't flush the toilet paper.
