'Don't drink from our train toilet bowls' Southeastern warns

This Is Local London: Sheer loo-nacy: A picture of the toilet by @TomPapworth Sheer loo-nacy: A picture of the toilet by @TomPapworth

Temperatures are soaring but Southeastern are telling parched punters not to drink water from their train toilet bowls this summer.

The company has become the butt of online jokes after traveller Tom Papworth spotted this sticker on the back of a toilet seat while travelling from Victoria to Orpington.

It helpfully warns confused commuters who might be tempted to guzzle straight from the can: "Not drinking water."

He tweeted: "Thank you, @Se_Railway for saving your passengers from a fate worse than death. #NotDrinkingWater"

It is not know how many, if any, travellers have mistaken their train's loos for a water fountain and taken a cool, refreshing drink.

A spokeswoman for Southeastern said: "I'm sure all of our passengers will have worked out for themselves that the water in this particular location isn't suitable for them to drink, but it never harms to state the obvious.

"We're reviewing the location and number of signs on our trains at the moment and will feed this example into the process."

Unfortunately stating the obvious is necessary. Ever since McDonalds got sued for not warning customers that there coffee was hot. So a few stickers covers them from being sued as there is bound to be at least one idiot out there who will drink it and then try to sue.

Yep what a shame that it's come to this. Common sense should prevail and courts should have thrown out cases such as the McDonalds one.

What I'm also bemused about is where you actually find a South Eastern train with a toilet on it these days!

The point of the McDonalds ruling was that businessess should advise customers of the potential risks of their products rather than face legal suits for personal injuries sustained.

Paul is half correct with his second paragraph, I find there are usually lavatories on the SE trains that I use, the problem is most of them do not work.

The stickers on the toilets on Virgin trains are at least humourous - Please don't flush nappies, sanitary towels, paper towels, gum, old phones, unpaid bills, junk mail, your ex's sweater, hopes, dreams or goldfish down this toilet.

Agreed that businesses should advise of certain potential risks but I don't think they should have to state the bleeding obvious for people with zero IQs. Warning that coffee may be hot is not necessary. Similarly, always makes me laugh when you buy a product that has those little silicon gel packets in it. It has to state 'Do Not Eat'. Who in their right mind is going to buy some shoes, for example, and think, "Wow, they've included a little free pack of sweets!" :) We shouldn't have to cater for stupidity!

But that's what you'd expect. With tea and coffee, they use boiling water, so obviously it's going to be that hot. If he ordered a coke and it was 90 degree Centigrade then I'd say he'd have a point!

Nobody drinks tea or coffee that is actually boiling! Coffee is usually drunk at a temperature of about 78 deg C. Mickey D's deliberately served the coffee at a scalding temperature because many of their customers were driving long distances & the higher intiial temperature kept the drink warm for a longer period of time. It was not intended to be drunk immediately, a fact of which the plaintiff in this case was not made aware.

From 1982 to 1992 McDonald's had received more than 700 reports of people burned. That fact 700 people had been hurt and the company did nothing about warning it's customers after so many injuries. Is proof that people and companies need protecting from their own stupidity.

I think it may be time for a lie down somewhere dark. There is no rule that says you mustn't drink water out of a toilet. The sticker is only an advisory. There is a law in the US that states jaywalking in some states is illegal, it isn't in this country although I believe it is in parts of Europe.

The sticker is only an advisory. There is a law in the US that states jaywalking in some states is illegal, it isn't in this country although I believe it is in parts of Europe. martint235

Haha for the hard of thinking, what has happened is some hilarious person has moved the sticker from the sink (where people might presume drinking water is available) to the bog.

This doesn't deserve a newspaper story :)

At first I thought it a sad day for the former Liberal Democrat Councillor for Crystal Palace Ward to be reduced to tweeting about train toilet water quality. On the other hand, it does draw attention to the health & safety fascism - more prevalent, it would seem in Tory boroughs - which has more or less made drinking fountains a thing of the past.
The more we chase some vapid, inhuman notion of progress, the more, I keep noticing, local authorities fail to cater for basic human needs. E.g., there should be toilet & hand-washing facilities in all public libraries, not just the ones run by the saner, more reasonable London councils.

Paul is half correct with his second paragraph, I find there are usually lavatories on the SE trains that I use, the problem is most of them do not work.
Agreed that businesses should advise of certain potential risks but I don't think they should have to state the bleeding obvious for people with zero IQs. Warning that coffee may be hot is not necessary. Similarly, always makes me laugh when you buy a product that has those little silicon gel packets in it. It has to state 'Do Not Eat'. Who in their right mind is going to buy some shoes, for example, and think, "Wow, they've included a little free pack of sweets!" :) We shouldn't have to cater for stupidity!

1 David cameron zionist
2 nick clegg zionist
3 ed miliband jewish zionist

Rothschild Zionism created ISRAEL with the balfour declaration the British said, the land of palestine can return to te jews. Who were the British to give away territory? world war 1 & 2 was all about creating and getting jews to palestine, they were alittle stubborn so the holocaust was created by the rothschilds. Join the dots and see true history.
