Poor mall designs

Jackie Olwage, Parklands

I would like to comment on the poor designs of the toilets at the malls.

Most have these long passages that lead to the very back of the building. Some are so narrow that two people can hardly squeeze past each other.

One has a passage that leads to a big hallway – big enough to park at least four golf carts – before leading off to the bowels of the shop. Golf carts would be handy in case of an emergency and for people who have difficulty walking.

Now comes the crunch. After negotiating the passage, one first has the gents, then the ladies, shoved right at the back.

Thank goodness there is no longer load-shedding.

Women should still be advised to carry a torch, just in case – could use it to defend yourself as well.
