"Men are not allowed to use the loo in the bathroom"

Angela Flowers, aged 80 Director, said this in a recent interview.

What was the context?


Dermot Report 10 May 2013 19:34

"Now wash your hands!".

Bobtanian Report 10 May 2013 19:41

In what context was this statement made, during the interview?


eRRolSheep Report 10 May 2013 19:43

Bobtanian Report 10 May 2013 19:46

Bob, it's hardly cryptic, Dermot & Shelley understand the title.

My daughter in law has that as a house rule Shelley, they have a pump loo downstairs :-D


eRRolSheep Report 10 May 2013 20:11

I think Bobtanian and I were merely interested as to the context of such a strange rule


Bobtanian Report 10 May 2013 20:13

sorry but I still dont see the connection, with angela flowers......
wondering if she had a Man loo in the outhouse

both my loos work as intended,

but if you mean like,take your boots off before getting into bed............

or as in "Lady and the Tramp, the new Nanny insisted .......... THAT DOG WILL LIVE IN THE YARD!"
yeah i'll go along with that one.......


Bobtanian Report 10 May 2013 20:22

we DO have A variation on rules one of them being

if it cries feed it
if it still cries change it
if it still cries after that, give it back to its mother!

My house + My rules

Clean the bath after you have used it
You spot a cobweb, you remove it
Toilet seat & lid both down then FLUSH
