toilet vocabulary

What did you learn to say to describe going to the toilet (1) as a child (2) do you now say something different?

We went to the toilet to do "big business" and whenever someone uses that phrase it still gets a smirk from me. I was travelling with a group of Canadians recently (men in their 40's) and they saw repeated signs on fields for "no dumping" and you should have heard the sniggering howls of laughter at this.

We went to the loo, or went to the loo 'for a while'. Wink

It's always been called a wee but when I was a kid, a No 2 was always called 'going properly'

When Em was little, it was a poo & a wee, now it's either for a wee or if not specified, we all know it's for a poo

I wonder if that's a 'Merseyside' expression - my grandmother always used to talk about 'going properly' !

Yep, I reckon that's Merseyside, Fee. My grandparents used to say it too.

I was an onomatopoeic infant defecator, assisting and describing the process in real time poetry in motion by use of the expression "Arrrrrrrs!" Well into my mid-single figures I believed that I, personally, was responsible for the vulgar term for bottom.

When we were kids it was "wee wee" and "big jobs" lol.

When my kids were little it had evolved into wee wee and poo!

Poo seems to be the polite version as opposed to going for a dump which men seem to say. I've also heard people say that were going for a Forrest! Rhyming slang of course - Forrest Gump.

I can't believe I've just sat and typed that load of useless information. Oh well, I've got to get to my 1,000th post somehow :bag:

What is it with men and toilets that they have to take the paper in with them?

I use the word Loo. Abbie has just been toilet trained and she just gets up and runs when she needs. She says a word that resembles "toilet" and sometimes she says a word that resembles "potty"! It depends what she wants to use at that particular moment!

I used to work in an office with 5 guys and they were always nipping out for a "Richard the Third"! :ninja:
