Excuse me...where is the ________?

What do you call that room where the toilet is? And do you call the one in your home something different from public ones? I refer to the ones at home as the bathroom, but when I'm out I always ask for the nearest "ladies room". Sooooo, is it:

The bathroom
The restroom
The lavatory
The ladies/men's room
The loo
The WC (Water Closet)
The powder room
The potty
The toilet
The commode
The head
The can
The facilities
The privy
The john
The crapper (in honor of the inventor of the toilet, Thomas Crapper)

Am I missing any...at least any that are DIS appropriate?

This made me laugh out loud. I don't think I could bring myself to ask a stranger "excuse me, where is the poop palace?" It sounds like a good dare the next time I'm with someone at the mall.

Since I have kids and I am potty training I almost always slip and say "the potty". If I am with an adult I try and correct myself to "the ladies room" or "the restroom". If I am with DH or my friends with kids I just roll my eyes. They know what I am going through and many are going through it too.

It depends on what the place is.

If it's a stop at a gas station, then I call it a bathroom, as usually there is only one room. And if it's grungy and smelly, there is no resting in it.

If I'm at a restaurant where they sometimes only have a couple unisex bathrooms, I'll ask for the restroom.

If I'm in a department store like Macy's, where they usually have separate bathrooms, I'll ask for the Ladies Room.
