There are many jokes about mens room etiquette out there. I’m not really trying to make one here. But there are some things that are just plain common sense.
Consider a public restroom with 3 urinals placed uncomfortably close to each other. And by close, I mean “shoulder to shoulder” and “dude, you fucking stepped on my shoe” close. You walk in, and there is no one there. Which urinal do you take?
I might be going out on a limb here, but I would always choose either the left or the right urinal – never the middle one. Why? Because if someone comes in after me, they can comfortably take the urinal on the opposite side. It’s common sense, and common courtesy. Why do people insist to pee at the middle urinal in a situation like that is beyond me.
But this is exactly what happened today. I walk into this stupid restroom, and there is a dude standing at the middle urinal. Not only that. He also plopped his backpack on the floor directly in front of the right urinal, and stuck his calculus book behind the pipe on the left one. WTF?
So now, everyone who walks in, does the same fucking thing.
- looks at the jackass taking up the middle urinal
- pauses for a second trying tho figure out the distances and the angle of approach
- does the universal WTF gesture with his arms
- gives up and decides to use the stall.
People peeing in the middle urinal suck! Don’t be an ass – pick a side, and stick to it.
Of course if there are more than 3 urinals, if they are spaced out in some sane manner, or if they put those little divider things between them it does not really matter that much anymore.
