During travels,we have to use public toilets.One can find more scribblings inside a public toilet.Some are with telephone numbers and addresses and some are cheap drawings of genetic organs.Generally ladies feel awkward about this.Also,there are some interesting comments sometimes.For example,I happened to read one, when I am urinating in a public toilet saying,"India's future is in your hands".Have you any interesting or disgusting experiences?Please share!

I avoid using public toilets. I'm glad to say I haven't used one in years (other than to wash my hands). However my husband has used them from time to time while he is at work. They are the port-a-toilet type. Anyway, a few years ago, during (or right after) the OJ Simpson trial, my husband went into one and there on inside of one of the walls it read "Free OJ dolls! Take one or mold your own." And it had an arrow pointing down to the toilet. As gross as it was, I couldn't help laughing at the joke.

Some are quite funny. One was 'F**k all grils' and then underneath was 'Don't you mean ''girls'' stupid' and then underneath that was 'Maybe - but what about us grils?' haha It helps to pass the time!

You seem to have a more refreshing viewpoint to most who have responded here. It can make a visit to the 'john' or 'urinal' that little more interesting. It seems amazing that no one has commented negatively to your response! I do like to see a bit of imagination though!

I agree. Sadly there is too little quality humour on the 'pages' - just crude rubbish. I wonder if anyone actually phones those numbers and how do they start the conversation. 'Hi, I'm replying to your advert on the left hand side of cubicle 4 ...' haha

If you come to China you could see such writtings in public toilets almost everywhere.Well I have only been to ladies' restrooms and most times I will see somebody has written things like"I really like you xxx","I love you","I miss you""Why do you leave me?"things like this.Seems everybody is thinking about their lovers when they are releasing themselves in the restrooms.

This could be a research project in its own right! I guess that ladies and gents probably write about different things to each other, where ever in the world! Like I say, a clean restroom, to do one's thing, is the most important!

I use public toilets nearly daily, as I leave my house regularly. I find bus stations bathrooms to be most disgusting, especially because I can only use the wheelchair accessible stalls and must sit on the actual toilet seat. Able-bodied people, I hear, hover.

I don't like to use public toilets to begin with, but I am not happy when I go into a stall and see graffitti on the walls. Why would someone waste time in a bathroom writing stuff on walls when you are in there for one reason only. When I go in the bathroom the urge to write or draw does not enter my mind. And I really don't want to see someone's drawing of someone's private parts or see other disgusting stuff in there either. I wish people would just respect other people's property. Have you ever thought how you might feel if it was your business and that was your bathroom and people defaced it? It makes you think twice about it, doesn't it? It does for me. Have a nice day and happy myLotting!!!

You're right on! It's cheap and disgusting! And I can not understand how people take extra time to write something on the walls or doors, when I, personally, just want to get out of there as fast as possible...

Writing in public toilet is annoying and silly habit. Many does that so long they have something with them for writing. I can not remember any interesting writing so far except for some dirty sketches.

It really amazing how people can have the idea to write something in public toilets. Even with graphic hust to show how talented they are. Its really annoying though, to see those 'free advert' of the intimate time with the person who wrote that. Even I had one encounter with a poem writing on back of the door. Not the mention the hate to someone and you know what they got the answer on that and again the person who wrote it answer it back and I was,like, reading a script of arguments. What a waste of talents I say.

Hi, usually the stink in public toilets is so bad that if I really have to go in, I would do my business as fast as possible, and rush out. So I would be too busy taking care of my nose and the 'other' business to notice the writing!

Hi srganesh It irritates me a lot.Public toilets are not the place where you can show your writing skills for sure.Also what kind of pictures are drawn there?However we cannot make a rule against this but we can me more sincere.If someone is found to do such an act we can do take some steps against that person(I am not meaning Physical Assault).

Wow you guys do that over there too? I love when I come across discussion that shows just how much we are the same where ever we are in the world. We have the same things in our public bathroom stalls, ladies numbers saying," for a good time call so and so" and the crude genitalia scribblings. Yes. Sometimes while you are in there you might even get a good laugh reading some of that stuff. I have to admit I have left my name on bathroom stalls back in the day. Who knows some of my work may still be on display today somewhere. Great post.

I've only see names of some teachers or some popular students in those scribblings. True, they are disgusting but some are quite funny as well.

hi srganesh! yeah, i really wonder about people. i mean, why they do that. sometimes they use crayons, sometimes ball pens, sometimes permanent markers. it is really annoying, how poeople would rather dirty a clean wall with these writings. i think that if you want to be read, go find another venue, not mess up somebody's wall. i think i will write about this topic. coz i find it really annoying. thanks about the idea man! take care and God blessy ou!

Dear friend, I do find it is one of the worst things. Mostly it would generate a bad impact on kids and childern especially who do not understand certain things. I hope public toilets are really to kept clean and well it would give a nice picture of the people of that place.

Well, often you will find some of these in the most interesting of places. Back when I used to drink I remember seeing them a lot in Bars, but I have still seen them in Truck Stop restrooms, etc. as well. All I can say, is sometimes some of them are really uncalled for, and I actually feel Sorry for the places that are having to constantly go in and repaint or clean their stalls of all the grafitti as well.

I, myself, don't write in public toilets but I think some of the things that are written can be very interesting or just plain funny. I can't think of anything off hand that people have wrote, but I have seen much in my days.

I generally try to avoid using public toilets, but I remember when my first daughter had just learned to read, and I was forced to take her into a public toilet in a park. All of a sudden she started reading the foul words on the walls and asking me what they meant! It was terrible - I had to explain that the words were not nice, and only rude, bad mannered people would use them.

That was an interesting wording you saw. Indeed the future of ones country is in their hands since they elect the officials who will serve. For me, I still recall in high school, I saw one that said "It takes two to make a baby, so why not you and me" At that time I couldn't even comprehend why would high schoolers even eb thinking about making babies instead of getting an education.

I think one of my favourites was in a public toilet in Hammersmith, London. It said: "All Gays are Gay"
