Bathroom Etiquette

Post by rass » Thu Mar 21, 2013 11:31 am

A co-worker just stopped himself mid-piss to pull out his wallet to try and pay me for the office bracket pool. I didn't have any change on me. Hope he washes his hands before he makes it down to my office later.
I felt aswirl with warm secretions.

Maybe you should stop asking people for money in the men's room.

How do you stop yourself mid-piss? Once I start, I can't stop, although I guess I haven't really practiced.

One time I was taking a piss at work when one of our auditors came out of the stall, said hello, and proceeded to exit without washing his hands. Never shook his hand again.

Yea, but do you know why that's the correct answer?

Because the toilet paper is embossed in such a fashion that going under-roll takes away from the aesthetics of the tissue.

I read that in, appropriately enough, in an Uncle John's Bathroom Reader. It referenced one of the most discussed Dear Abby questions of all time.

Yea, I hate that I know stupid shit like that.

Ain't nobody going to call Johnnie out on this?

Embossed? Well, some has a pattern, sure, but the pattern is meaningless. The only place in the world you will find "patterned" hoop wad is in a household in which a female dwells. Men don't give a damn if they are cleaning their anus with kittens or angels. In fact, it seems sort of wrong to us. Walk in to a poop parlor in any public building. Those industrial rolls do not have designs; it's pretty much the same paper you get as receipts at stores or ATMs.

Aesthetics? What . . . really? The sense of art, beauty, philosophy . . . of toilet paper?

Damn, Johnnie. You almost got away with that.

Almost.

I'm talking about it in terms of how the roll is spooled. The pattern on the paper looks better when unrolled from off the top. So, from what I gathered from the thing I read in that book which referenced an article from way back when (that sounds clear enough, right?), the intent of how you unroll should then be over the top -- from the way the manufacturer sees it.

Really, you can't call it "correct" because preference is subjective. There's no "correct" room temperature setting or what color the rug should be, so I should have clarified. That's where I fucked up. That and using aesthetics incorrectly. I guess I meant presentation. It's supposed to "look better."

In reality, I set my roll of toiler paper perpendicularly on the spool. I hate that the placement of toilet paper holsters on a wall makes me wrench my back in one direction or the next. I'd rather just grab the damn thing and unroll a couple sheets. So, again, who am I to say "correct"?

Sidenotes not related to the "over or under" debate:

I don't care if I'm using 3-ply, I'm still wrapping that stuff around my hand.

Finally: Quilted Northern > Charmin.

You pussies rinsed your hands? Back in the coal mines of Cape Breton we'd just find some unsuspecting N'Waterford greener and slap 'em on the back.

What a waste. My Great Grandfather used to store his leftover dingleberries in a spitoon, which he then traded to the Haida for oceanfront property. And that is how we acquired the family homestead back in 1908.

There's where Grandpa screw'd up. Scanless, dat. Ya' doesn't give the Haida no spittoon. Some scurvy-infested blankets and a pisscutter stationwagon would have done 'er enough. That's how we got the mining rights to Lingan Colliery, back in the day. And all we had to do was convince the Mi'kmaq that they could skidoo across the frozen St. Lawrence to score Marlboros for us. This, as it is well know, gave rise to the now famous Aboriginal drum chant, born right outta that very same '77 Volare, of "Start the car-ar-ar-ar-ar-ar-ar-ar. Start the car-ar-ar-ar-ar-ar-ar-ar."

My wife and I were discussing shitter etiquette the other day. When Mrs. Bfj has to deuce in a public place, she will wait until the bathroom is cleared before releasing. She doesn't want to make loud deuce dropping noises while others are there for fear of embarrassment. I laughed at this. You're in a bathroom with the door closed. Everyone knows why you're there, so why hold back?

Gentlemen, do you hold back? I'm not talking about a work environment where you have to see the people who may be in there and they may recognize your shoes. I'm talking about a public bathroom.

You gotta go, you gotta go. And what happens happens. If it follows that there should be an accompanying soundtrack, so be it.

If you have decent musical pitch and can identify notes, this can be useful skill in enhancing your experience. Such as . . . "Ah, that was an F#, followed by a sequence of A-minor notes, arpeggio."

My job before the current, a friend and I had a contest to see if we could sound so awful (naturally) that the guy right outside the bathroom asked if everything were ok. We tried hard and did some great stuff but he never did.

(I don't talk to Missus D about this sort of thing in specific terms. Pretty girls don't poop.)

Civilian friends, does your place of business post urine color charts to remind you how hydrated/dehydrated you are?

This might still be a thing in the Air Force. I remember in my previous maintenance squadron they were up everywhere. I found it equal parts amusing and absurd that you needed to print out a color chart for piss and then recommend how much water I should drink based off of it.
