Fill ‘er up

bathroom sign

There is a toilet theme running through this site! Bathrooms, restrooms, WCs and toilets are indeed different in the Netherlands than in other places around the world. The English is OK, but the Dutch thought of filling the entire toilet with paper is the clincher. The Dutch just says not to throw toilet paper in the toilet. I would have thought that very odd considering it’s toilet paper, but after my summer vacation in Crete where toilets clog up easily and toilet paper goes in the garbage, my world view got that much bigger.

Is the toilet half full or half empty when there’s paper in it?
