The pottery near me either made toilets or pottery pipe... I can't remember which!  Haha.
The usual. American girl meets British guy. They fall into like, then into love. Then there was the big decision. The American traveled across the pond to join the Brit. And life was never the same again.

Now, in the 28 years I lived in the US I've only ever seen a toilet clog twice.

In the 3 years here, a toilet did get clogged at work once.

Don't even get me started on work toilets! The women in my office are clearly savages... WHY oh why are you ever in a situation where nearly a whole toll of toilet paper is now IN the toilet?! If you clogged it, that's fine...but you're not being discreet by covering it in a TP cocoon! It's just foul in my office...not what I would expect from professionals...

You know, perhaps there should be a stage in the vetting/interview process..

Don't worry, the men are savages in  the work toilets as well .  Every place I have ever worked has had to put up a "Polite Notice " not to wreck the bathroom.  Not sure how effective those are. 
The worst are the men with stage fright who won't use a urinal but also can't lift the seat so they pee all over it.  Bring back hanging!

I could definitely get behind that haha I just want to make sure people can behave above toddler age when using work toilets! I didn't think it would be such a big ask!

We have those...and also ones reminding you to wash your hands....as full grown adults haha

They are not really effective from what I've witnessed...

Send it as a suggestion to the Life in the UK test people.  ;) Probably more useful that some stuff they have on there. ::)
