And when the door is closed, the dog can still go through the hole to get a drink.

I know, I'm sorry dear. I don't know what I was thinking, I can go back and notch the door hole larger so that the toilet lid can be shut as well.

Apparently whoever designed this little gem hadn’t been sitting on the commode long enough.

This is why door guys drink.

Broken leg in a cast? No Problem!

We also have urinals for those men with arm in cast.

The idea of a slot in the door was a flash in the pan......this now our bog standard design for small cubicles.

--------------

and an off-topic comment. I was involved in a building contract (back in the late 50's) where this new thing called critical-path-analysis was imposed as condition for project planning and execution.

Each part of project was broken down into man-hour packages (where for the loo pan and wash basins etc, and all plumbing was estimated as 10 man-hrs).

To cut a long story short, when the time came to do the work, the main contractor said we had a window of 1 hour for access and completion (or incur penalties for consequential delays).

.......obviously an interesting logistic exercise for such a small toilet cubicle....

Did you ask him why your part of the project was being forced to absorb the delays caused by the earlier contractors? And if you were being forced to "clean up the mess" from the failures of the other contractors, were you to get a bonus based on how much time you reclaimed and how much the other contractors were penalized for their sloth?

Well, at least you never have to wonder whether it's occupied or not.

Nobody can fit (their) behind that door.

Damage caused by a frustrated Brit not understanding what a 'bathroom' was. A box of chocolates may not compensate for what occured in the bathtub.

Harry "barely" got out of the way when the door decided to eat the toilet.
