Public toilets in Amman

I don’t know if I have to start this by asking Why we don’t have public toilets in Amman or by begging to have public toilets? it doesn’t have to be free at all, make it one JD per ehem but don’t force people to do it in car parks or between two cars in the main street.

Today I went to down town to drink my dose of Sahlab and pick some DVDs and while jumping from DVD store to another I saw two guys doing it near Hashem restaurant exactly next to Al-Weibdeh white taxis stop, I understand it’s very cold and that make holding it longer really hard! but that doesn’t justify doing it there, nevertheless, it sounds like they didn’t had any other solution.

One month ago I was with my friend in Abdoun when I got an urgent call from nature (LoL) and there were very limited choices so I picked McDonald’s as last resort but it wasn’t comfortable to use their toilet without having the status of customer so I first asked the cashier for two ice cream and then run to toilet trying to beat the time, thankfully I succeed but that marks it as the MOST EXPENSIVE ehem IN HISTORY!.

I know there are many high priority stuff we have to do before thinking of public toilets but no! I think it is priority to have such thing, for god sake why Australia have public toilets? they even have National Public Toilet Map can’t we have something similar ? but ohh don’t remind me of Raghadan public toilets that was totally different experience and don’t even mention your university toilets because it’s another story.

Thankfully men can do it whenever and wherever they want even if we don’t have public toilets and this because we can do it standing but take a minute and think of the others? yes girls? you know they cannot do it standing for natural weakness (LoL) and yet this marks as another reason of why we cannot be equal.

I think government should think of such service and they actually should make it good service because they can monetise it, it would be new money tap for them and would stop the human tap in the street.

Ohh shit! got to go! Natural call.
