Mr. Mackey: Excuse me! Can we get back to the issue, please? You all don't seem to understand how serious this is. Now who made dookie in the urinal?

**CLASS LAUGHS**

Mr. Mackey: Oh, you think it's funny, huh? M'kay. M'kay. You're going to think it's real funny when the police get here.

redmid17: Sir_Farkalot: First of all: Guys, we weren't born in barns, can we please flush so we don't have to PRETEND we're all humans and get embarassed when ladies hear about our dirty little secrets?

Second of all: Please don't write articles ladies are going to see about our dirty little secrets.  It makes them have thoughts like "No one in my house is allowed to pee standing up," and it ruins the ease of urination for us all.

The best part about being a man is you can make your own decision on how to urinate.


Damn right. I hate urinals, I always rock the Slater on the john.

Fano: The My Little Pony Killer: I find it really sad that guys need to be entertained as they take a piss.

Keeps us from talking and hanging out in there for 15 minutes like the ladies do.


The point is still that ladies can get their business finished without having the caretakers of the restroom hold their hands through it.

And again, I've never seen herds of women migrate to the restroom.

Dwindle: That would involve touching something in the restroom. Nice thing about being a guy, you don't have to touch a single thing besides yourself.

This is why you often see a sink running in the restroom. What's the point in washing your hands, then touching the disgusting handle and then dirty town dispenser?


I never quite understood why people don't usually wash their hands  before using the restroom.  Wrapped away in my clean underwear for most of the day, it is safe to say that my junk is the cleanest part of my body...until I walk into a restroom, unzip, and contaminate the clean zone with whatever I've been touching all day.

If I'm feeling dubious about germs (flu season or something), I wash my hands before going and then use a paper towel to flush, turn off faucets, and open the door before tossing it.

The My Little Pony Killer: Mr.Hawk: women always needing to go to the bathroom together

Citation please?

I've never had group outings to the restroom.


The International Center for Bathroom Etiquette states "It is not only appropriate for women to go in groups (preferably holding hands and giggling), it is severely reprehensible for a girl to go alone."

Dwindle: Lor M. Ipsum: Benevolent Misanthrope: Because guys are disgusting pigs who would rather wallow in urine than expend the effort to flush?

While I'm not arguing the "disgusting pig" bit, flushing #1 can be considered wasteful of resources in areas with poor plumbing or when moderate-to-heavy drinking is involved and the urine is mostly water anyway.

That would involve touching something in the restroom. Nice thing about being a guy, you don't have to touch a single thing besides yourself.

This is why you often see a sink running in the restroom. What's the point in washing your hands, then touching the disgusting handle and then dirty town dispenser?


Holy crap - your bar has a town dispenser?

:'(  I want a town dispenser.  I'd buy a tiny island somewhere in British Columbia and take my town dispenser there and make myself a town.

/Don't know why, but I'm feeling silly today

I'll put this bluntly, I'm guessing you haven't spent much time around groups of women then. It's not a hard and fast rule, but there is a reason the stereotype (especially at bars) exists.

offmymeds: I once saw this message scrawled above a urinal: "Please don't put your cigarette butts in the urinal. It makes them harder to relight."


"It's giving the cockroaches cancer"

OldManDownDRoad: puckrock2000: offmymeds: I once saw this message scrawled above a urinal: "Please don't put your cigarette butts in the urinal. It makes them harder to relight."

And of course there's the old favorite, written high on the wall above the urinal, "If you can read this, you're pissing on your shoes."

My favorite:

"If you can piss above this line, the volunteer fire department would like to talk to you."


Please do not throw toothpicks into urinal - crabs can polevault.

All the time in college.  I don't think a single woman at a party has ever used the bathroom by herself.

I just use the patented kick method. If I can't flush it with my shoe, it won't be flushed.

Which is exactly why the flush, sink control, and door opener should all be on the floor.

Your hands were all on your junk and before you washed them you grabbed the bar to flush the urinal, I am not touching that thing.

It's been on quite a few TV shows too. I remember an episode of That '70s Show that had Jackie yelling at Donna to go to the bathroom with her. Then Fez (not understanding it's only women who do that) tells Eric to follow him to the bathroom and all the guys look at him like he's crazy.

W

hen I worked in the oilfield, we used to say that you could tell the field hands from the office guys because the office guys washed their hands after they took a leak.
 
2013-07-31 11:52:33 AM

Edymnion: No, one of the commenters got it right.  Its there because the ice machine got too full and they needed to dump the excess ice.  They can't put it in sinks because you have to use the sinks, and they can't put it in the toilets because someone would try to flush it and clog the thing.  You put it in the urinal because thats the only place left short of tossing it out the back door.  Anything else it might do are just side benefits.  If this were not the case, you would see ice in *EVERY* urinal, not just one or two of them at a time.

And yes, you have to keep ice machines partially empty, otherwise it freezes up into a solid block.


And you cannot throw it outside...?

Crack has an article about women in groups to the bathroom. It baffles me that people *hadn't* heard of it

From personal experience, I always found the bathrooms that have ice in the urinals to smell worse than other bathrooms.

A guy who spits his gum into the urinal seems like the same kind of person who leaves a shopping cart in the parking lot.

I was at a multi-day music festival and had need of the porto. These were the fancy ones, with a separate molded plastic urinal. The porto operator thoughtfully placed one of these in each receptacle. Someone much wittier than me scrawled in Sharpie, with an arrow indicating said  biscuit: "Have A Mint."

I still giggle, 20 years later.

I'm obssesive about washing my hands after going to the bathroom, so i'm not afraid to flush a urinal. Also, i hate the smell of urine, so i have a motive to fluch the urinal. Also, i'm not an inconsiderate a-hole, so i choose to flush the urinal.

Unfortunately too many men don't wash their hands afterwards or are afraid of catching herpes from the handle and it turns into wall mounted bowl of piss soup in many mens' rooms.

Partly because women are more likely to attempt the hover technique and fail and then not bother to clean up after themselves.


Y'all just keep telling yourselves that. And peeing on ice.

You've... never had to clean a public womens' room, have you?

I have. Two summers; one at a teen camp, one at a movie theater.

Women are far, far more vile and disgusting creatures when it comes to public bathrooms. I am speaking of the collective result, of course, not all individuals.

My fav on a festival was 'DANZIG' written on the poop house wall with a big arrow pointing down to the poop and pee at Fun Fun Fun Fest.

Mongo No.5: it encourages accuracy, and flushes automatically.  although the old ceramic fly glued to the urinal does wonders for accuracy as well.

however, it does give a little more splash back than a regular urinal.




Too bad the rest of that country has those god-aweful toilets, with the poop shelft. Gross.

zenobia: Y'all just keep telling yourselves that. And peeing on ice.


I've done maintenance work for several companies over the years (lights, plumbing, electrical,etc.). Women's bathrooms in my experience fall into two categories, both at extreme ends of the cleanliness spectrum from each other. They're either spotless clean, with flowers and spray and hand lotion and all that crap, or they look like something straight out of a prison in some third-world hellhole. The disgusting ones I've been in beat any men's room I've ever seen for sheer nastiness. Say what you want about men, we don't toss "napkins" in a lump in the corner.

As someone who's also done maintenance work, I'm in full agreement. Men seem to be naturally neater than women when it comes to public bathrooms. That job nearly drove me to celibacy.

Flies also contribute to neatness.
