Stinky 1960s Loos in Southlands

By NeedHelp - 12 February 2010 47

Having recently moved to Mawson, I now regularly shop at Southlands, with 4 year old in tow.

Was disappointd to find that the toilets I used when I was, oooh, about 6, are still there decades later. Original walls, original floors, and years and years of stench. You can smell them even before you reach the corner.

When my young child needs to go, I find it appalling that this is our only option. Or is it? Are there other public toilets at Southlands that I am unaware of?

They seem to be doing a lot of renovating in Southlands of late. It is embarrassing and disgusting to have the loos in this state. Does anyone know if these  stinky 1960s  toilets are going to be upgraded too?

What’s Your opinion?

a) Kids under 5; and
b) Common sense

I’m guessing the OP possesses one but not the other. Can you guess which one?

Gosh there’s some judgmental twats on this site at times. Karma will find both you vg and Tooks.

Thanks H1NGO, I think it’s a privately owned building. Not sure.

Nevermind. This was an old thread, and I was just updating people. I didn’t expect to be attacked by vg and Tooks because I spoke up about some seriously stenched loos. God knows why they need to be so rude. Do they really think I don’t ask my kid to go to the loo before we leave home? Goodness gracious me; people who jump to conclusions should be dunked in sheep dip.

Attacked? Come on, read my post again. This is a light hearted topic and I was having a light hearted dig at you. Lighten up and stop taking things so personally ;-).

I don’t know. I can actually go several hours without needing to take a crap.

You don’t have kids do you?

No, didn’t think so.

Yep, I do, actually. I guess my kids are better trained than yours.

Trained? You mean trained like a dog that doesn’t crap when you take it for a walk?

Good job tooks.

Lol, you are so easy to wind up. BTW, kids are very much like dogs. I had my kids toilet trained by 8 weeks and sitting calmy before feeding time not long after. They don’t even need choke chains anymore when I go to Southlands. Great success!

Just stand outside the toilets and ask people to stop pissing and crapping in the toilets, that will fix the stench.

The stench is comparable with everywhere else south of the lake……….ohhhhhhhhhhh shazam!!!

On a serious note, how about calling Canberra Connect who may be able to put you through to someone who can help. Same goes for blown street lamps, blind spots and complaing about the ACT Governments hold music.
