Hire a Toilet Guide in China

If you happen to be in China, and unable to find one of those bizarre outdoor urinals we talked about last week, don’t fret. The city of Wuhan, China now employs “specialist toilet guides” to help you find your way in a time of need.

The service isn’t free, however. A dedicated toilet-boy will set you back ¥3 CNY (about $0.38 USD) per finding. But how do you even find one of these guys when you need them? Apparently they are “distinguishable by their red armbands.” I couldn’t find any photos, so I took the liberty of photoshopping my own interpretation which you can see above.

Don’t mind the can of Busch our toilet guide is holding.
