On a recent trip to Ireland we stayed at a very nice hotel. My only comlaint was that there was no toilette brush in the bathroom. I asked the cleaning lady, and she said: „We don’t do those here“.
This got me thinking. Why would an otherwise relatively civilized people choose not to use a simple and rather basic hygienic appliance? I came up with three possible answers, but I would greatly appreciate more.
a) The Irish are too lazy to use one.
b) They are usually too drunk to use one properly.
c) The average Irishman can’t figure out how to use one.
If the right answer is c), then maybe the little picture above will help.
