or "I'm going for a wee" or "He's gone for a wee" etc.

Can't you just go to the loo without announcing it, or just refer to it as "the loo".

Adults "going for a wee" is childish and ever so common! So there!

I would answer but I need a piss!

Is that better? grin

PopUpWorkshop Sat 18-May-13 18:48:41

No, that is awfully common too, Mamma! As is "whizz" and "slash"!

PMSL <common as muck, me>

grin sorry, couldnt resist

If you go without announcing it, someone always asks where you are going.

Now, I"m just off for a wee.

It's so, so childish though and makes me wince. I judge intensely anyone who announces that they're "Going for a wee", unless they're very young!

PopUpWorkshop Sat 18-May-13 18:50:53

If someone asks where you're going, tell them you're going to the loo!

But I am off for a wee. Wouldn't want anyone to think I was off for a poo

grin

JamieandtheMagicTorch Sat 18-May-13 18:51:39

I would reply but I'm off to shake the lettuce

PollyPlummer Sat 18-May-13 18:51:48

but then they might think you're going for a poo...

Force of habit after potty training I'm afraid

phantomnamechanger Sat 18-May-13 18:52:03

"please excuse me, it has become necessary for me to go in search of a facility in which to urinate" - is that grown up enough?

PollyPlummer Sat 18-May-13 18:52:14

ah x post with Noel

My pal says she's off to shake the lettuce. I wish she'd say she's going for a wee.

DH says he's going for a bangers and mash.

Too much detail.

JamieandtheMagicTorch Sat 18-May-13 18:52:38

I'm off to see a man about a dog

VeremyJyle Sat 18-May-13 18:52:52

Noooo its rude to walk out of the room without announcing where you're going

PopUpWorkshop Sat 18-May-13 18:52:54

Actually, it's not just adults, anyone over the age of about five sounds ridiculous saying "I'm going for a wee". Ugh - so common!

Bumpotato Sat 18-May-13 18:53:35

Away for a single fish...

Mumof3men Sat 18-May-13 18:53:36

Oh dear, I always say this, so many years of working with kids.
However, I have just realised my young male colleague always says loo. He's never mentioned my use of the word wee!

wetsand Sat 18-May-13 18:53:38

MIL says she is going to 'do a wee' hmm

PopUpWorkshop Sat 18-May-13 18:53:46

Just saying you're going to the loo then, if you need to. If not, don't say anything!

JamieandtheMagicTorch Sat 18-May-13 18:54:11

So I'm guessing you wouldn't like : "I'm off to the little girls' room"?

VerySmallSqueak Sat 18-May-13 18:54:49

I don't mind,'I need a wee',but I dislike 'I'm just going to do a wee'.

Subtle distinction but it makes a difference to me.

PopUpWorkshop Sat 18-May-13 18:54:59

I had a colleague who said "going for a wee" and we all thought - "thanks for that!" every time she said it. She was awfully common.

away for a wetty
