^I agree with the restroom bit. But some people find "toilet" to be rude. I'd ask for "el baño", but that's just asking for redneck trouble. I've just decided that the next time I need to say "restroom" I'm gonna say "loo." My voice class is the perfect place for this, too! Now I'm excited for Tuesday..
What's wrong with saying 'I need to visit the ladies/mens room'? That makes far more sense than restroom. You say restroom is more polite than toilet? Well wee is more polite than piss. Also loo is a colloquial term for toilet in England, there's is nothing childish about it. I don't get why people are making a big deal. She's a dumb idiot for peeing on the floor not for the words she has chosen to use!
I really don't think the sound of you peeing would wake him up. YDI
And referring to something as 'So lame' sounds ridiculous in the UK, so you can shove it. Besides, we say 'pee' 'piss' 'shit' like everybody else. We just say 'wee' too. It may be weird to you but most things Americans say sound retarded in the UK. Take 'fanny' for example. In the US I believe it is an Arse. In the UK it is a vagina.
