A business motivator said if you want to know more about a person you are going into business with then check out his car and his bathroom, writes Ruta Mave. - 22090413
If there is
one room in the house that causes more marital discourse than any other it is
the toilet. The most common arguments are the lid up or down, the loo paper
falling to the front or the back of the roll, reading the paper, basically
taking too long when others are waiting, leaving skid marks on the bowl,
leaving one square of paper or an empty roll and not leaving a spare handy for
the next person.
scheme of life these are not fatal or alarming criminal offences but after an
age of co-existence it can be a matter of life or death of a relationship,
especially when you introduce children.
life of me I don’t know why it affects women more than men that when you go to
the loo children follow you in, with the cats milling around your legs.

On the one
hand the car is the outer persona – what he shows to the world about who he is
and what he is like. How he looks after his car and grooms it or trashes it
says a lot for himself and how he will treat his business. Think of the older man who buys a sports car or
Harley – it’s known as men-o-porsche syndrome.
bathroom is the inner sanctum – how he acts or behaves when no one is looking
in behind the scenes. A tidy clean bathroom will say more about whether they
will be a better business partner when it comes to dealing with crap, than what
he can act to your face.
announcement of a new toilet block in the Punanga Nui Market is a welcome addition
given the state of these rooms over the past years.
state of a bathroom shows the inner character of a person or community, we have
been sadly lacking and unbelievably publicly embarrassing ourselves in the face
of visitors for quite some time.
