or "I'm going for a wee" or "He's gone for a wee" etc.

Can't you just go to the loo without announcing it, or just refer to it as "the loo".

Adults "going for a wee" is childish and ever so common! So there!

or "I'm going to powder my nose"

"Little girls' room" is terrible!

Not so keen on pointing percy at the porcelain either.

I got into this habit with my kids because otherwise they follow me/shout at me/need their arse wiped.

Also during toilet training to normalise it.

I don't intend to do it in adult company blush but it just keeps happening.

I always say I'm going for a wee, or going to the lav

JamieandtheMagicTorch Sat 18-May-13 18:56:29

I say it at home but not at work. Unprofessional. To say it, I mean, not to wee.

I am common - I can live with that grin

"Just off to empty my clog" is the best phrase I've heard for it.

NoelHeadbands Sat 18-May-13 18:57:52

Could you say you think it common a couple more times OP?

Just in case anyone doesn't get it, like grin

PopUpWorkshop Sat 18-May-13 18:57:53

I couldn't be friends with anyone who told me that they were "going for a wee". Far too common for me.

I always say I'm off to use the euphamisim

I remember once when I went to the bathroom (better OP?) and didn't say where I was going.

MIL decided I was obviously up so she told DH she thought I was crying and he came to look for me, with her and FIL following.

And there was no lock on the door so it was flung open while I was in mid flow (is flow okay?)

And then they wondered why I was annoyed.

She burst in on me and sprayed me with air freshener once as well.

I threatened to take a leaf out of Borat's book after that, and announce to the room that I was going for a shit (sorry OP) whenever she was in the house.

to say that one is going to the toilet (or even worse 'going toilet') is common, much more so than going for a wee

NoelHeadbands Sat 18-May-13 18:58:33

There we go grin

I always say I'm off for a Jimmy.

Jamie it is most unprofessional to micturate during working hours.

You don't get paid to piss!

And don't get me started on these scroungers urinating willy nilly all day on my tax dollars!

ChippingInIsMissingHerLatte Sat 18-May-13 18:59:50

Thank god for that... I'm off for a wee.

OHforDUCKScake Sat 18-May-13 19:02:06

When Im feeling particularly common, I may annonce ones need for a slash.

Otherwise, its 'wee' here.

Depends who you are with.With family and friends;" I need a wee", with acquaintances or strangers ;"Excuse me please."

itsallshitandmoreshit Sat 18-May-13 19:06:08

I shake my lettuce or lay a cable.

I say this in front of the team of 40 people I manage.
