North Yorkshire toilet etiquette


Proper use of the toilet paper, thank you. You know, for actual toilet stuff. No self-mummifying, no scale models of the Taj Mahal.

You there, having a nice sit down, enjoying a cup of camomile and some peace of quiet. Take your dunked teabag and dispose of it somewhere else.

(I could have called this post 'North Yorksnire Toiletiquette. I chose not to.)

Ive seen the tea bag notice before,made me wonder where the kettle was stored..

The word "other" seems to be implying that tea bags are in the sanitary disposables category....

Nothing alleviates the boredom of being held at the lights outside of Doncaster like a spot of self-mummification. Or so I've heard. Not that I have direct experience. *ahem*

Would proper use of toilet roll include nose blowing?

I personally HAVE used loo roll for a spot of mummification - Hallowe'en 2009 the wee man went out as a mummy. But failed to find sufficient crepe bandages to give proper effect.

Toilet roll and sellotape is no use, let me tell you.

Ah yes the Yorkshire folk are a little different, but then I found this crazy toilet sign in the loos in Queenstown New Zealand. http://www.vegemitevix.com/2011/01/a-guide-to-traveller-modernicus/ Look down towards the end of the post and you'll see how we explain toilet etiquette to tourists and 'others' in NZ!
