Coming Soon: Toilets Inside Elevators
- Strange announcements
- Earthquakes in Japan
- The next big earthquake in Japan will leave around 17,000 people marooned in elevators
- While Japanese people do not mind using a toilet placed in an elevator, the idea won’t probably be received well among Arabs for social and religious reasons
To cut it short
In an attempt to avoid situations that leave people stranded (and slightly embarrassed) without basic amenities, the Japanese government is considering installing toilets and drinking fountains in elevators. Not all the lifts would have the luxury of being installed with portable toilets, but a few of them may be fitted with collapsible cardboard structures with adsorbent paper bags.
Where are you from? And would you use an elevator toilet if you really had to go?
