In the days when you couldn't count on a public toilet facility, an American
woman was planning a trip to India.She was registered to stay in a small
guest house owned by the
local schoolmaster. She was concerned as to whether the guest house
contained a WC. In US, a bathroom is commonly called a WC which stands for
"Water Closet".

She wrote to the schoolmaster inquiring of the facilities about the WC.
The school master, not fluent in English, asked the local priest if he knew
the meaning of WC. Together they pondered possible meanings of the letters
and concluded that the lady wanted to know if there was a "Wayside Chapel"
near the house . . . a bathroom never entered their minds.
So the schoolmaster wrote the following reply:
Dear Madam,
I take great pleasure in informing you that the WC is located 9 miles from
the house. It is located in the middle of a grove of pine trees,surrounded
by lovely grounds. It is capable of holding 229 people and is open on
Sundays and Thursdays. As there are many people expected in the summer
months, I suggest you arrive early.there is, however, plenty of standing
room. This is an unfortunate situation especially if you are in the habit of
going regularly.
It may be of some interest to you that my daughter was married in the WC as
it was there that she met her husband. It was a wonderful event. There were
10 people in every seat. It was wonderful to see the expressions on their
faces. My wife, sadly, has been ill and unable to go recently. It has been
almost a year since she went last, which pains her greatly. You will be
pleas ed to know that many people bring their lunch and make a day of it.
Others prefer to wait till the last minute and arrive just in time! I would
recommend your ladyship plan to go on a Thursday as there is an organ
accompaniment. The acoustics are excellent and even the most delicate sounds
can be heard everywhere. The newest addition is a bell which rings every
time a person enters. We are holding a bazaar to provide plush seats for all
since many feel it is long needed. I look forward to escorting you there
myself and seating you in a place where you can be seen by all.
With deepest regards,
The Schoolmaster.
Note: The woman never visited India!!!!
