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!

"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!

I love that! Never heard it before!

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.

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

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

Long live the class system in this country.

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

Yabu, I'm off for a weegrin

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.

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

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.

Jengnr Sun 19-May-13 18:36:02

Anyone who says 'loo' is a massive bellend!

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.

WildlingPrincess Sun 19-May-13 18:20:40

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

Decoy Sun 19-May-13 18:18:35

> a rough, uncultured home.

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

Decoy Sun 19-May-13 18:17:16

Most polite is not to announce it at all!

RubyGates Sun 19-May-13 17:46:48

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

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

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

I'm a nipper! I use loo and wee interchangeably but I'd say loo if I was going for a poo.

The horror of using the word toilet and other non-U words does amuse me. Just because the upper classes say it, well it must be right.

crashdoll Sun 19-May-13 13:27:04

I never knew expressing the need to relieve oneself was such a minefield!

Dawndonna said
"If I heard you wittering about the loo and other such twee forms, I'd know exactly where you were brought up, and it certainly wasn't where you are trying to claim. You're not posh, just an insufferable snob."

which really surprised me. I say 'loo' and don't consider that to be twee at all. No, I agree that I'm not posh but I am not an insufferable snob either. Is 'loo' really considered to be a Hyacinth Bucket type of word?
