- The Hidden-Camera Neurosis
I search obsessively for spy-cameras - on the ceiling, behind the cistern, under the basin - before I can use the toilet.
What I want to know is, is there any basis for my paranoia? Does anyone have any information on whether these are actually in use? And what would the legal position be (I can imagine some companies trying to justify cameras on the grounds of preventing vandalism, sex or even (God forbid!) smoking).
2. The Trapped-In-An-Automatic-Self-Flushing-Toilet Neurosis
Fairly self-explanatory, but in case you haven’t come across these, they are the ones where the door shuts automatically, and, after you leave, the entire toilet drenches itself in water and cleaning fluid. Obviously my fear is that it malfunctions and starts sluicing itself with me trapped inside. Given the fearful noise they make, nobody would hear me scream. Generally I avoid them, but they are becoming more common.
Question - has this ever happened to anyone?
