Toilet Graffiti

An average human tends to waste quite a lot of time inside the toilet cubicle, doing virtually nothing apart from eliminating wastes. Well, some may have some books in the toilet, and many adults admit to reading newspaper in the toilet every morning. But then, normally in public toilets, you don’t have much reading materials at hand... Some may suggest spending time by fiddle with mobile phones, but then there is a risk of dropping it inadvertently. Not worth it...

Well, there are reading materials in public toilets. I often find myself amused by the grafittis in the cubicle walls, written by previous visitors who unleashed their creativity in the conducive environment. While a lot of the grafittis are political satire and pornography pictures, some are purely entertaining.

Just this morning, I was using the toilet inside Brownless Biomedical Library when I stumbled upon an interesting one. Not a long one, it was just a few words.. At first, I noticed this “instruction” on my left...



Well, being the usual obedient guy, I followed the instruction to find this on the right cubicle wall.



I was fooled. :(

In my school, toilets are one way of venting your frustration on other people. Rude words like b***h, f**k etc together with the enemy's name decorates the doors and walls of the cubicles.

Terrible huh?

Ahem..."being the usual obedient guy,..."

It's always much more interesting to blog from one's observation and experience. But I can't really convey much in my words without photos sometimes.
