Yes? What can I do for you?

May I ask, where is the rest room?


May I ask, where is the restroom?

1. Correct spelling. This is redundant.
Sure! The ladies' restroom is on the first floor of this restaurant and the getlemen's restroom is on the second floor of this building

Thank you. I will go there. (few minutes later) Excuse me. The restroom doesn't work because the toilet is full of bath tissue. I think that someone did such bad behavior.


Thank you. I will go there. (a few minutes later) Excuse me. The restroom doesn't work because the toilet is full of tissues. I can't believe someone behaved so badly. 

1. The full expression.
2. I believe this is what you wanted to say here.
I am sorry to hear. I will have someone unclog the toilet immediately. (5 minutes later). I regret to tell you that the gentlemen's restroom is out of order due to the fact that someone threw a diaper in the toilet. I do apologize for this inconvenience. However, there is another restroom you may use. It is next to the kitchen.

Oh, really? What a insane person there is. I am ashamed as same as a father. Anyway, I have go the restroom. I am desperate to pee. Sorry, it's dirty words.


Oh, really? I can't believe someone would do such a thing. Thank you, I will rush to the restroom immediately. 

1. A more natural way to convey your idea here. We don't go into such details regarding this topic, especially when we talk with people we see for the first time in our lives.
Do not worry. Have you tried to go to another toilet on the first level? You may even go to another place if it is so urgent...

I wiil be there. (5 minutes later) By the way, have you ever happend such an incident before? I can't stand the person who behave rude. A rest room is public property therefore, we have to use them with care.


Have you had similar incidents in the past? 
A restroom is a public property therefore, we have to use it with care.

1. Rephrased to sound clear and understandable.
2. Rephrased to sound completely clear and natural.
It happens sometimes, but rarely. A lot of tourists use our toilets without being our costumers. Therefore, it is hard to control how people behave.

I see. I am compassioned your situation. We have to recognise someone keep cleaness for everything. Honestly, I pretend to be a gentel men but I disposed a daiaper in the toilet. I have to apologize what I did.


I see. I really feel for you. It can't be easy to deal with such situations. I hope it will improve in the future. 

1. I am not sure what you meant with this last part. But even if that's true you shouldn't share such information in public. Rephrased.
