Gladys Philips, 82 years got locked inside public restroom for four days when she was out shopping for the holiday season in Felixstowe, England and she had to make a top for refreshments at a public restroom. What she didn't realized that the facility was not ready for public use as yet.
She had to discover this in a difficult way when the door locked behind her and she was trapped inside the restroom. She told a local newspaper that was not that concerned when she could not get out of the place at first and she was actually quite relieved to have used the toilet.
Gladys said, “I kept banging on the door and walls and shouting for help but obviously no one could hear me. I realized I had to tough it out and so I sat on the loo and began knitting. Luckily I had just been to the shops and picked up a new ball of pink wool, so I began making a scarf, which one of my lucky grandchildren will get for Christmas.
I had also popped into the sweet shop after collecting my pension, so I had a full bang of mint imperials to eat which kept my spirits up no end. The loo was very clean and cosy. I was able to sleep on my big overcoat and was lovely and warm and if I got cold I just sat under the hand dryer for a while.”
We are not sure whether we would want a scarf that had been knitted in a public restroom but surely we would call that a real ‘Super Granny’.
