I think we have mentioned these toilets in passing, on other posts in this series. These are the toilets that are hardly ever open because the guy responsible for looking after these conveniences sees it as a total inconvenience to actually go and open them up to the public. The number of times Razzi and I have driven down the promenade at break-neck speed – in serious need of an emergency wee-wee – only to find them still locked at mid-day. Furthermore, on the days that he does deem to open them up, they are usually closed again by 3pm – at the latest.
On the rare occasions they are open they are not really anything to write home about. The hand-drier in there is one of those all-in-one units that dispense soap, water and is a hand-drier too. The only problem is that the hand-drier comes with a free weekend pass to the old-folks home along the front. This is because by the time they have dried your hands you are ready for retirement anyway.
In all honesty, you do not expect public toilets to be pristine in this day and age, where everyone thinks it is a laugh to vandalise anything and everything. However, it would certainly help if they were available for a quick emergency wee-wee every now and again!
…and so say all of us.
