“Even the mosque at my village has a VIP toilet. At first I was shocked as well,” a netizen commented.
“Go to the mosque bro, some got a ‘VIP’ label at the door and locked. So if 1 day you get to be a VIP, call upfront that you are going to the mosque, so an officer gets to be with the key waiting — should you feel like to pee.” another netizen shared.
Amazing. One would think the VIP and the right-hand man would share the same cubicle to, you know, be the right hand, man.— JeologyWasiat (@JeoWasiat) March 26, 2022
Some wonder what makes a VIP toilet so special in the first place. “Do VIP toilets use Evian water,” a netizen asked.
“There’s no need to look very far, even the teachers’ and students’ toilets at schools are like the sky and earth. The teacher’s toilets are well maintained whilst students’ toilets are dirty, which they blame it on the students,” said a user.
Nonetheless, most do agree that although they are considered as an ‘important’ person, it shouldn’t give them the right to be able to cut queues at mosques and even on the road.
