I needed the toilet on the train the other day. You may be asking yourself "Why do I need to know this?", but it's quite pertinent to the review I am about to write. You also probably could have guessed that from the title. But I digress. After ensuring the train was betwixt stations, so that my urine found its resting place in a quiet area, I made my way to the train toilet. This wasn't a particularly fancy one, not one with a sliding door, it was more like a plane bathroom in size. As I went about my business, I found that the toilet lid was affixed to the wall with a plastic bracket. Now, I'm sure most people wouldn't think much of this, they'd just get out of the toilet and be on their way. But I had questions.
Why is this necessary? The reasoning behind this baffled me. Yes, having a fully functioning toilet lid on a train is not important, but why not just take the lid off? It could potentially make the seat more uncomfortable, but I don't think it would. I don't know, I don't sit on train toilets. My point is that simply removing the lid would be a lot less effort than that they expended to pin it to the wall with a separate plastic bracket. I'd understand if you could move the bracket to put the lid back down, but you can't, I tried. So this solution is overly complex, and quite unnecessary. Just take the lid off.
