5 things that are SIMILAR
- You certainly prefer a vacant seat in both - in fact, you compulsorily need a vacant one in a loo!
- You are elated if the same one that you use always is vacant – after all, ‘familiarity breeds comfort’.
- A corner spot is the most preferred, you don’t want to feel squeezed between two other folks!
- You have good use of the paper in both cases – albeit newspaper in one, and tissue paper in the other.
- You almost certainly have something funny to read, including instructions such as ‘Do Not wet Tissue Paper’ or ‘Julie loves Peter and f%#@% someone else’ etc.
5 things that are DIFFERENT
- You would want to stay away from the bus if you have ‘motion’ sickness, while you cannot afford to stay away from a toilet then.
- You do not want a loo seat with a window view, at least others prefer not to see you!
- It is OK if you use a lady’s seat in a bus that is empty, a similar case in a toilet might lead to permanent mental and physical scarring.
- You don’t want to be woken up by the cleaners, saying you missed your stop and it is time for them to do their work.
- The conductor can afford to kick you out in the middle if you didn’t pay, but no-one wants to have that choice in a toilet.
