Unrelated flash fiction – The Toilet

Posted to a remote corner of Pakistan where he knew he could only expect squat toilets, he went to the bother of bringing a Western porcelain toilet with him on the plane. On arrival at his new home he showed the workmen where he wanted the toilet installed, then left to explore the town. He returned that evening to find that they had dug a pit in the floor of his bathroom, inserted the toilet, and cemented it in. The seat was perfectly level with the floor, and its lid covered it discreetly.
