The Burning Question*: Is it ok to go to the toilet in front of your other half?
Let distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel.

It’s a Bank Holiday Monday, but the back to school fear is drifting in, you have the whole week looming ahead, and you have a lot on your plate.

So do like we do here in HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: This one cause a lot of debate in offices. There were recriminations, hurtful words and eye contact averted for days.

All because it was suggested that if your other half is on the toilet, it’s ok to be in the bathroom, brushing your teeth or whatever.

What do you think? Is it ok to go to the toilet in front of your other half?
