Here goes nothing…
I’ve been traveling to China for a few years now for work, and have become quite familiar with getting around on my own, the customs and how some things are done in the country. Last year I extended the work trip and had my sister and sixteen year old niece join me in Beijing as they’ve never been to China. What better opportunity than doing some sight seeing, plus I was a seasoned traveler.
Yeah, it was great, we went to the Tiananmen Square and the Great Wall of China – awesome trip.
But my guilty pleasure is that I love providing endless bits of information on anything I know very well, and in this case it was to my niece while we visited a public restroom – in China many facilities require squatting.
She went in first, and I popped into the booth next to her.
I said, “Okay Sam, when you sit on the toilet face the door.”
She said, “I think that’s pretty obvious.”
I said, “Don’t sit sideways or anything. The first time I went I sat the wrong way.”
She said, “I’m fine.”
I said, “Make sure you pull your pants down all the way, and hold your hems so they don’t get wet.”
She said nothing.
I said, “And try and stay balanced on both legs while sitting.”
Again, no response.
I said, “Do you know where the lever is?”
Silence. Then she said, “I don’t think we have the same toilet”
Is said, “What do you have?”
She said, ” A normal one.”
I said, “Oh, I have a hole.”
That was an extremely funny and embarrassing moment, and sometimes guilty pleasures can get you into trouble!
