Of toilet tissues and government facilities
I pondered considerably on whether I should write this letter or not. But this problem (no toilet tissue in many government ministries and some hospitals) has become so naggingly inconvenient that I was forced to pen these lines.
It is no secret that when people are on business at these entities and would like to use the toilet, there is often no tissue.
That person would then have to exercise intestinal or bowel control until he/she goes to a convenient place, such as the public washrooms at Bourda Market or Stabroek Market.
And if one sipped or even guzzled a lofty glass of rich milk shake earlier?
In this situation “nature would have to obey necessity”, as Shakespeare said.
It was said that members of the public use to carry away the tissue after having used the washrooms. Therefore, tissues were no longer placed in lavatories.
I wish to conclude by calling for the authorities to rethink the return of tissues and also to appeal to users to desist from the inconsiderate practice of taking it away.
