There is rich seam of euphemisms from which to choose when you try to contact somebody at work and they have gone to the loo:
- stepped away from their desk
- in a meeting
- stepped out for a minute
- out the back
Take your pick. However, Preacher’s A to Z is avoiding euphemism today and coming right out with it- I’ve gone to the loo over at Toilet Twinning and left a post there instead.
