Some signs and signals are just universal. A smile breaks down language barriers faster than anything I know, and the middle finger is pretty well known around the globe. However, I think my favorite universal signal is the potty dance. You know, the move that says “I have to pee so bad I don’t know if I’ll make it through the next two minutes without some relief.” That move knows no boundaries!
In a small restaurant/cafe in Nasr City the other night the signs on the bathroom doors had me laughing out loud.
Although, there’s no match for the advertisements inside the women’s restroom:
These ads are for an FUD (Female Urination Device) that allows women to pee standing up. The brochure had some great information, including the website: www.go-girl.com.
