Apparently, Japanese women seem to think so. The moment they enter the toilet cubicle, the first thing they always seem to do is to press the flushing sound (so as to mask the sound of them peeing – roll eyes). For those who are not familiar with Japanese toilets, well, every toilet is always equipped with some sort of machine which they call bidet.
You can see for yourselves all sorts of functions that that the toilet bowl can do for you to keep your golden arse squeaky clean.
You can also see the flushing sound button on the right, yes? Yup, that’s the button I’m talking about.
I can understand why shitting can be embarrassing. But peeing?? Come on, people go to the toilet only for one reason. Nobody goes to the toilet to socialise or have a fancy dinner. Ok, unless you are sparing a thought for people who are too embarrassed to eat alone outside and instead choose to eat inside a toilet cubicle.
How pathetic is that? But such is the nature of Japanese culture. Yup, they even have a term for it. It’s called benjo meshi (literally, toilet food. yikes.) Haiz. Nvm, it’s another topic for another day.
Meanwhile, to my fellow Singaporeans, please do continue to be as considerate as you have always been and leave the toilet as clean as possible, okay? kthnxbye!
