This time I am really speechless as to what is not on offer throughout the world, but then again I am just way behind the times!!! That’s life, I guess……
Now here it is… register your toilet at home online so for the folks who “have to” know where they can go. I am not too sure about this, because do I want strangers popping by saying “Hey, I need to go.” And what happens if I need to go then too and only have one bathroom.. Paying guest first and I have to hold it until they are finished or how does it work????
Or you live in a high-rise apartment building and the neighbors get wind of the fact that you let strangers use your toilet at your place, and how life is and people by instinct are nosy…. there you go half of the building has signed up to say they “gotta go” and you’ve got a line-up outside your door and down the hall and maybe to another floor, because so many people in the building what to see how you live and what your bathroom looks like. Plus, you have to greet each person show them were the toilet is located check to see if you have enough toilet paper or you tell everyone to bring their own toilet paper( money saving tricks) and if you don’t charge a users fee your water bill could skyrocket from all those flushes…
And how long are the people allowed to stay in there??? Need an egg timer, so once you’re over the allotted 5 minutes then a parking meter starts metering the length of time you are sitting on the toilet… I mean really now… I see this as a money making adventure where I can turn my boring bathroom into a cash earning room without investing a major amount of money…
Ok, so someone pops by and says they “ gotta go” … First question to ask: Do you have your toilet paper with you? If they say no then I could offer a couple of sheets for a reasonable fee of let’s say $ 10.00 and show them where the bathroom is located..
I would make sure the user paid a deposit first before entering my bathroom … Cash then go… No cash no go!! Simple as that and send them on their merry way.
What could be stressful for me is that because it probably some App, that means I need my cell phone on 24/7 and if someone decides they have to go at let’s say at 2:00am in the morning when I am asleep…. Sorry, I am not getting up for you!
Again you have someone new in your neighborhood and they have registered with this set-up… well than there is nothing easier then popping by to use the toilet to get to know them!
But I do see a couple of problems that could happen if you are not on your toes… Your toilet is in the same room as the shower & sink… Now, what do you do if the person in there thinks “Ah, I need a shower”, and then takes a shower… Of course they have brought their own soap and towel with them. Maybe turn off the water in the shower before letting strangers use your toilet or what???
I feel this whole concept hasn’t been really thought out and I personally will not be taking part in this whole toilet stuff!
But whatever you decide… Have fun at it!
