    Smile Re: hee-hawed ... comfort station

    I have never heard about that but I studied in my linguisitics class (for Euphemism for the same reason that Ouisch indicated )these:
    "To squeeze the lemon" or "to drown the dragon"
    Mu Scottish teacher always says:" I'm going to the loo".It's rather informal

    We won´t usually hear people say ¨comfort room¨ but C.R, it´s acronym. I´ve got friends who have been abroad tell me that there are times when they want to go to the toilet and that they asked people about the comfort room, nobody knew about it, how sad. It gave me the idea that comfort room is a Philippine English jargon.
