I think Eliza got it right about "swaying" toilet seats I've found that Greek toilet seats are often precarious. In the early days of my Symi holidays and my first mortgage I stayed in a very reasonable pension in Chorio. The Gents toilet and shower had the toilet squeezed into a very narrow "niche" which meant you had to reverse in, sometimes with disastrous results.
I became quite proficient at repairing it, even bringing a small adjustable spanner in my luggage! While we are on the subject, I visited the Iapetos shortly after it opened. The toilets were underground but very nice. The cubicle was big enough to have a small dance in and the lighting was switched on by a motion sensor. Suddenly I was benighted! It was my first visit so I hadn't registered where things were and resorted to waving my hands about. Sadly, the motion sensor was just out of reach!
I was reluctantly thinking about shouting for help when some kind soul came downstairs, activating the motion sensor, I never met my saviour but will be eternally grateful to him/her!
