Dotomo Toilet Paper – Wipe, Not Swipe!
They now have toilet paper for smartphones in airport restrooms. When I first ran into this bit of news on BBC, I thought it was a joke. But, when I had a closer look it made a little more sense to me because it has been distributed in Japan and it seems to me that the Japanese are crazy about two things in the world: their bathrooms, and their smartphones. We are even lectured about Japanese restrooms when first coming to the country, about what button to press and what lever to turn. But, mostly about how not to get scared on seeing the high-tech contraptions.
And now, they have introduced a roll of toilet paper, neatly placed next to the human toilet paper. Don’t worry though, the toilet paper for your phone is more narrow and has text on it, so you don’t confuse the two. The sponsor of this mischief, the Japanese mobile provider Docomo, was hospitable enough to print the info about Wi-Fi spots on it. Imagine this: you take care of your portable assistant and get enlightened about where you could log in your Instagram to share the overwhelming experience of using the restroom. Or perhaps instead, you might twit about how many bacteria one can find on one’s mobile phone after a trip to the bathroom. Not that we all care too much for that, but apparently, the Japanese do.
The Japanese culture has always cared about cleanliness. The Japanese tourists are said to be deeply shocked by all the grime they see in the streets of Paris, for example. Apparently, it’s such a jarring experience and they’re so damaged by it, that the embassy has launched a psychological service for the victims. No, I’m not kidding. Some highly motivated volunteers come to Paris specifically to help clean up the streets. Instead of going to Louvre or Versailles, they pick up cans, paper wraps and garbage and then go home. What a boring trip.
