Bog Off! Exhibit 17-Thank goodness it's not smell-o-vision!
This Bog Off was photographed at a local pub. It had the typical problem of the help cord being tied up out of reach of anyone on the floor. Also, although this was a toilet with specific extra support provided for a disabled person, as is all too common the placing of the grab rails and sanitary disposal bin made it impossible for a wheelchair user to safely transfer back and forth.
However, as the title indicates the biggest problem with this loo was one which couldn't be photographed....and count yourselves lucky it couldn't! Oh my! This toilet stank, it smelled bad enough to make you retch! To be fair, it was a very hot day in July, however looking at the bin overflowing with soiled nappies it clearly hadn't occurred to anyone that they might need to empty the bin once in a while.
Which was a great shame, because it was a lovely pub, with a beautiful beer garden and generally access was reasonable. However, rightly or wrongly like many people I always that if the toilets aren't clean then the kitchen probably won't be clean enough either and that's enough to put me off going back there!
