It always baffles me why the management of many places charge a fee for entry into toilets, more often the case in some hawker centres or markets. I’m not against paying 10 cents to finance the costs of maintaining and keeping toilets clean, but I loathe paying to enter a stinking toilet. Granted, it’s generally the users who are responsible for the cleanliness of the toilets, but isn’t it more costly to actually hire someone to ‘guard’ the toilet rather than spend the money keeping the toilet clean?
Well, perhaps I’m clueless about the true value of how much one toilet can collect, but you would need to go through at least 250 pee-ers a day just to cover the cost of the guardian.
But then again, we are the country that brought you the World Toilet Organization (who in turn bring about the World Toilet Summits and World Toilet Expo & Forum), and purportedly fine people for failing to flush the toilet after use (that would be a lot of money for our government if that law actually exists), so we do take a lot of pride in our toilets. If you need further proof of the quality toilets you can use without paying 10 cents, just check out the top 10 toilets in Singapore.
It can only be Your Singapore (where we want to make money, even when you pee)
