I was in a North London pub this afternoon when I needed the toilet so I followed the sign upstairs.
The first door I came across had a giant letter 'G' painted on it. 'Ah,' I thought, 'this must be the gents.'
I was just about to open it when I realised that while 'G' almost certainly stood for 'Gentlemen', there was a chance it stood for 'Girls' instead.
So I had to walk down the corridor looking to see what letter was painted on the next door. It was, unsurprisingly, 'L'.
For a brief moment I wondered whether this stood for 'Ladies' or 'Lads', but then I realised I was being even more ridiculous than usual, so I retraced my steps and opened the first door.
I did feel a bit like I was on a gameshow.
