Pin It

Meaning of WC in Switzerland

An English lady visited Switzerland and had difficulty finding a room, so I asked the local teacher to help her. After a quarter had been found satisfactory, she returned home and some packing.

 Suddenly, it occurred to him that he had not noticed a WC (in England, the bathroom is called Water Closet), so the teacher wrote on the toilet

The teacher, without knowing the meaning, asked the parish priest and together they decided it must mean "Wayside Chapel". He wrote the following letter:

Dear Madam,

 It is a pleasure to inform you that there is a WC just 9 miles from his home in the middle of a pine forest. It can accommodate 220 people and is open on Thursdays and Sundays. This is an unfortunate situation if you are in the habit of going regularly. You will undoubtedly be glad to know that some people bring their lunch and make a day of it.

I recommend especially on Thursdays, because then there is an organ accompaniment. The acoustics of W.C. are excellent, even the most delicate sounds can be heard.

My son married in W.C. and there was such a rush for seats that 10 people had to sit in the seat. The look on their faces were very interesting.

My wife is sick, but dedicated. She does not go regularly, and that has not gone nearly a year.

 I will be happy to reserve a seat on the W.C. so, in what will be seen and heard by all.

Hope that I have been of some help.

The teacher
