    Thumbs down "Caught Short"

    s one of the worst things about these lockdowns - in a small(ish) city the size of Perth - you just simply cannot find ANYWHERE to have a for love nor money.

    ... talk about inconvenience! And it happened to me this morning when I'd to go into town in order to attend a podiatry appointment. Oh, the clinic does have toilet facilities. But having "gone" immediately prior to leaving my house, I didn't require to avail myself of those at the time. Later, though, upon remembering we needed kitchen foil, I then proceeded to the local Tesco Metro whose loo is not for public use, while those in the Shopping Mall were closed. So the only remaining alternative seemed to be M&S. Theirs, however, were on the upper sales floor, which was also cordoned off.

    Hope you managed to make it home in time.
    UK public urinals were seemingly closed down decades ago when profit overtook convenience (pun intended).

    Indeed, one of the so-called council 'services' that has been permitted to become practically non-existent in most towns now....the usual pathetic excuse (by those who can afford to run a Daimler or Rolls for their precious Mayor), being COST.

    It's the 21st century. Roughly 15% of the population are 65 + and most of them paying council tax !!!

    Idiot, thoughtless councils !

    Get some caring professionals in, instead of the usual bunch of egocentrics, busy lining their pockets.

    My home city of York is host to thousands of tourists every day.

    The lack of public toilets, due to closures over the past decade and more, is an absolute disgrace, and to 'advise' people to use pubs, etc, equally disgraceful.

    Like most laws here though...conveniently ignored, it seems.
