    Irregardless of whether I am in a home or public ecstablishment, I call it "the facility."

    What if the bathroom lacks a bathing facility? It really isn't a half bath--- as it really was never a bath anything.

    I didn't make up the word, but all educated people know what it means. Perhaps graduate from middle school where they call it a "lavatory" and you'll figure it out.

    And I guess from your comment that no educated person knows that a sign in an "establishment" that reads "bathroom" means toilet? Either way the room where one excretes waste is a toilet, but that seems for some reason to be a shameful word for Americans, much like titbit.

    Why are you too embarrassed to say tit?
