In the Loo

March 15, 2010

It must be a cultural thing. But to be honest, I just don’t get it.

Here you have a perfectly good toilet sitting beneath you, and instead of using it, you toss your brown-streaked toilet paper into the garbage can sitting alongside.


I mean, even when I was a kid visiting the outhouse at my Aunt Clarinda’s farm in Starbuck, I was taught that you should throw the corncobs in with the shit when you were done.

And for a country that practices far better oral hygiene than I, brushing their teeth religiously after every meal, for some reason the thought of the flies landing on their used toilet paper and carrying off tiny brown bits of crap to your Sopa de Tortilla doesn’t bother anyone.

I have many reasons to like Mexico, but this is not one of them. I wish you guys would knock it off.
