Have You Always Wanted Your Own Fancy Outdoor Toilet?

Well, you're in luck.  The city of Seattle is getting ready to remove their 5 fancy sidewalk toilets because they have become  havens for "ladies of the evening" and drug users.  They were a great idea for tourist use but the bad apples have ruined it for everybody.  They are stainless steel looking and they self clean when you shut the door after use. 

The toilets will be removed starting August 1st and be auctioned off on eBay...each toilet will have an auction starting price of $90,000.  (that would be ninety thousand).  So count your pennies and start watching eBay in August if your in the market for an outdoor toilet.

With my equiptment I think I will not need one of them. Ninety thousand does seem like a bargain though. Bill

Err, no thanks. I grew up with outside toilets and had more than enough of creeping outside in the dark to use one.  Anyway, we could not afford it lol.  What are the tourists going to do now.  Guess they will have to cross their legs and pray.  I did post yesterday but alerts are still all over the place. I have sent another complaining e-mail to the journals editor.

We used to have an outside toilet, not quite as posh as that one in the picture! I'll be interested to know who buys them for that price! Jeannette xx

well, it's too bad that the actions of a few ruin things for the majority, but it's that way most of the time.  thanks for posting the picture.

What a bargain!

What's wrong with those whores and junkies?  Don't they know what a toilet is for?

shame they had to ruin it. there are some of these style loo's in cornwall, they seem to do ok, mind you I don't think the "ladies" would get much business at one of their ones, they are in little beach coves!!! take care mrs t xx
