I find it rather disturbing that I can relate to most of the points in poxic's list.

Although in the girls' bathrooms there's a sign saying 'please use the sanitary bins provided' and someone's written underneath: 'or we will make tampon-tea and drink it'. It always makes me giggle. But I'm strange. Also in the girls' bat...
