Twitter helps Japanese man in toilet

twitter-toiletWho would have thought that Twitter could save you from a real embarrassing situation, with user naika_tei found himself in a toilet booth that has no toilet paper at all in the male toilets of Yodobashi Camera in the Akihabara district. Granted, the cardinal rule would be to look for toilet paper before locking yourself up in that particular booth, but we guess naika_tei was in a real tight spot at that point in time. Well at least he tweeted his way to some help, where someone provided him with a lifeline some 20 minutes later. Always carry some tissues with you, we say.

    I find it hard to believe that in akihibara the public toilet didn’t have a built in bidet. and yes, i would agree that he would be too shy to ask for help (maybe why he did it on twitter) but it would be too impolite not to give help.
