The Weird and Wonderful World of TEFL # 30
The Astoria had two toilets, one marked 'Ladies' and one marked 'Gents'. They were identical - a wee window high up on the wall and a hole in the floor. No one bothered with the 'Ladies' and 'Gents' distinction; the footpads were unisex. Julie pulled Yanni up about the state of the place. 'That's some excuse you've got for a ladies' toilet,' she said. Yanni looked at me and winked. 'What's the problem, Julie?' he said. 'Ye go in there tae take a dump, no tae eat yer dinner.' Julie was having none of it. 'You know what I mean,' she said. Yanni laughed. 'Julie,' he said. 'If ye don't like the Ladies, yaze the Gents.'
