This is a quote from my travel roommate Brandon during out time at Munich:
"So funny story! I'm at a music store in Munich, Germany, and I couldn't find the bathroom. So I decided I'm not only going ask an employee for help, but I'm going to say it in German. I said, 'Entschuldigen Sie (excuse me) Wo ist die (where is the) WC' water closet. She looked at me with this puzzled look! I said, 'Wo ist Die Water Closet.' We both looked at each other with a puzzled look. My buddy with me says, 'Do you have a bathroom?' She replies, 'Oh, yeah a bathroom.....up the stairs to your right.' So much for trying to fit in! FYI - Switzerland refers to the bathroom as a WC and in Germany it's a Toilette....."
