To put things in perspective, try this simple exercise:
- Make a list of all the public toilets you know in the area where you live or work.
- Imagine you are a visiting couple unfamiliar with the area, accompanied by a crying 2-year-old demanding the potty NOW! How many of them would you be easily able to find within a couple of minutes?
The massive influx of mainland visitors is responsible for many problems here, but let's not make one poor child's bladder a scapegoat for everything that's wrong with the situation. And maybe the Hong Kong government could consider putting up more signs pointing the way to the nearest public loo - that would be helpful to locals too.
