US Bathrooms

Don’t think I’m ever going to get used to having light switches inside the actual bathroom, instead of on the wall outside or alternatively as a drawstring. Kept worrying me every time. Yes, I know the current is different, but still!

This post was initiated by me getting totally freaked out by a couple of plug sockets in the wall right next to the taps today. Yikes.

And, plug sockets don’t seem to have on/off switches either. Weird.

I don’t even know what to say about the baths I’ve seen so far either, except they are hardly baths, more like drip trays. Hardly going to provide a nice relaxing soak with bubbles and friendly rubber ducks. Not impressed.

Shower experience has been good though. Instead of cascading straight down onto one’s head the preferred stream seems to be at more of a 45 degree angle, utilising the whole “drip tray” and making joint showers extra scrumptious. Bill’s shower certainly passed muster, oh yes

Don’t really get Bill’s problem with British towels though. His so called better ones didn’t seem that much more amazing. Still, I guess he had to use my tatty old rags from when I went to university when he was here. Proper towels are much better, honest.

Though did humour Bill by letting him wrap me up all snug in an Old Glory towel. 😉

    That’s because you don’t really use the towels! You just drip everywhere!!! ;P If you actually used them you would see that they soak up a LOT more water than yours.

    Also the sockets in US bathrooms have internal breakers (little red and black on/off switches) as do the one in Kitchens. They’re small, you may not have noticed.

    No, very clean actually!

    All those parts I’d usually miss, spotless.
