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!

Going for... an Eartha (Kitt)
Droping the kids off at the pool
give birth to an Otter
putting up the ass jack.
building a log cabin
crimp one off.

Dawndonna I know it's not what you mean by granddaughter of a couple of Lords, but I can help picturing a couple of ermine-clad chaps holding hands at the register office grin

Titles all over the place here...
And we all "go for a wee"

Or "use the facilities" if we're, erm, taking the piss.

Most polite is not to announce it at all!

> a rough, uncultured home.

No-one serious would say that, would they? grin

I say it. It's better than 'I need to piss'. Which I'd prefer to say to be honest.

In adult company I wouldn't announce at all (or would say that I'm going to the toilet if I have to explain myself for some odd reason).

If DS is present you would hate me, because I pointedly tell him 'Mama's going for a wee-wee' - but in my defence we're trying to persuade him to potty train, and if I tell him where I'm going then he's less likely to roam the house yelling for me until he finds me.

Anyone who says 'loo' is a massive bellend!

IncrediblePhatTheInnkeepersCat Sun 19-May-13 19:02:56

I'm strangely pleased that I'm not the only nipper! I wonder if I nip as a way of apologising for the fact I have to leave the room and as a implied promise that I'll be quick.

Jengnr - I can't stand the word bellend. The kids who used that word when I was in school were the same as those who found it hilarious to draw a penis in a school book.

Better than my ex-MIL who used to announce Loudly to all and sundry "I just need to go and empty my blaaaader"

So in summary the only sure way not to be judged negatively when you need to expel waste is to wear a nappy and do it without going to the loo.

pumpkinsweetie Sun 19-May-13 19:08:19

Yabu, I'm off for a weegrin

Long live the class system in this country.

RubyGates Sun 19-May-13 19:17:56

Actually, it turns out that we tend to say "pee" rather than "wee". I just noticed. grin

OP, You're still BU

If that is all you have to worry about your life must be pretty perfect lol.

vladthedisorganised Sun 19-May-13 20:12:02

Nobody's mentioned "nature calls" or "off to see a man about a dog" yet, have they?
I don't announce. If anyone asks, I'm off for a slash, or if Dd is asking, I'm off to the loo.

I love that! Never heard it before!

"I need to urine" uttered by a guy I'd gone for a drink with. He then went behind a tree despite our apartment building being in site.

He then proceeded to hit on me and couldn't understand why I wasn't interested!
