Change of career

When I was just a little girl I asked my mother what would I be.  Would I be pretty?  Would I be rich? Here’s what she said to me…

You’ll be a toilet attendant.’

Everywhere we went when I was little I had to go to the toilet (bathroom).  It got to the point that I was spending so much time visiting various toilets that the family decided that the perfect profession for me would be toilet attendant.  It was a standing joke and I became a tiny toilet critic readily offering my opinion when asked. 

I have obviously been to a huge number of toilets in the intervening years and I suppose one day it had to happen – I found the toilets for which I would like to be the toilet attendant.

  1. And now I have ‘che sera sera’ going round in my head!! Thanks Paula!!!

    Wow – that is one posh ladies room! Where on earth is it? I was at a new shopping centre today – the ladies loos nearest to the food court had just 4 cubicles. I call that really bad planning … and yes, there was a huge queue! Not an attendant in sight!

  2. Wow, is that Windsor castle? I feel like I’d have to dress up to tinkle there. I am wincing over here to think of you dealing with all those germs so I must encourage you to go for your graduate degree in loo maintenance and become a toilet attendant supervisor. ;o)

  3. And you’re not telling us where it is in case we take your dream job?
    I hate strange toilets. They give me the creeps. You can keep your shiny mirrors! 😉

  4. Just love this post!!

    When our granddaughters were small, if we went to a bathroom that had no seat covers, I’d take toilet tissue and fold on the seat….to protect from germs.

    One day at home, the youngest (who still needed help when pottying) started putting toilet tissue on the seat. Her mom (our eldest daughter) said “Olivia, you don’t have to do that”…..her response “Uh huh….granny SAYS”. But, it appears this one needs no tissue or seat covers!!

  5. Well, I have some toilets down here in Colombia that would bring out the Lysol just to look at a photo!!! There are lots of job openings here, too, I think, but it’s really a risky business since they do not flush the papers, but put them in a trash can…. UGH!!! On the other hand, the people here seem to be pretty healthy… go figger.
