Lloyds Bank issues instructions to foreign staff on how to use British toilets26th of March 2014
Lloyds Bank in central London has issued instructions telling foreign staff how to use the toilet - featuring details such as 'sit on the toilet - do not stand on it', and 'please flush it with your hand and not your foot'.
With the help of diagrams, workers are shown how to open the door using their hand, and are requested not to leave toilet tissue on the door handle.
The poster, which is now displayed in several of the bank's offices, gives full instructions of British etiquette in the lavatory, including 'The sinks are for washing your hands only - no using hand towels or toilet paper as a plug'.
Other helpful tips to workers include throwing used toilet tissue down the toilet rather than put it in a bin, but the opposite with plastic cups. The instructions are said to be there for workers from around the world with different toilet habits.
