    or the more likely version that a firefighter would use:

    "Wo ist das Scheisshaus? Ich muss ****en!"
    If that was in english I'm sure you'd be getting a PM from the webteam. lol

    And then back to English: "Where the bathroom is. I received too pinkeln!"

    Hmm, I think the phrase 'lost in translation' may apply here.

    Needlejockey.. the phrase you want is..

    In English...
    Where is the bathroom.. I gotta pee!
    In Deutsch..
    Wo das Badezimmer ist. Ich erhielt zu pinkeln!*

    Thanks guys, latin never was my strong point. Dropped out and took German instead. Fat lot of good that did me. I can't even remember enough to ask where the bathroom is. Actually i remember everthing but the word "bathroom". Good thing I don't plan on going to Germany eh?

    BTW Slickpost, you might be surprised by how many people I come across that use lots of abbreviations and have absolutely no idea what it means. They just roughly know when to use it (and get it wrong plenty too).

    What he said....

    and just throwing this out there, but e.g.- is the abbreviation for the latin phrase, exempla gratia, which means for example.

    Couple things, first please do us a favor and do not start each word with a capitol letter.

    I think you were asking about "i.e."? Not sure the exact definition (I'm lazy and do feel like going to m-w.com) but it pretty much means "in example". For a really poor example it would be: "There are several different things a person can do to make themselves more attractive to department to hire them (i.e. become a medic, get a degree, etc etc).
