I just got back from a return flight home after a wonderful holiday on the Mediterranean island of Majorca. A typical holiday destination for us British tourists! This isn’t exactly a flight from hell story but I did experience two rather unusual toilet incidents that I thought I’d submit.
While waiting to board I decided to use one of the public loos in the airport and was forced to wait in a line. To my dismay and indeed every other male there, there was a Spanish woman with her two little daughters trying to get in as well.
I should mention that the ladies did have a longer line but surely this is going a bit too far. One of the men asked her what the hell she thought she was doing and they needed to get out. She responded by unleashing a hissy fit in Spanish at him, pointing to the line at the lady’s room. Even when he pointed to the urinals which were in plain view, she merely rolled her eyes at him and refused to leave along with her daughters.
I was flabbergasted. If I’d tried to go into the lady’s room I would have probably got shouted at or worse. And now this woman was trying to force her way into a men’s room, not only by herself but with two little girls. I don’t know what happened as I decided to go elsewhere, but in my opinion it was very irresponsible of the mother.
On a funnier note when I did get on my flight, the male flight attendant announced over the intercom that if anyone did a big one in the toilets they would need to inform the cabin crew upon leaving.
