If there is a line, I go in. No line, I wait.

If I'm the first one in, I'm locking the door unless, again, there is a line.

Double up at a bar. And if you're waiting outside, strike up a conversation with the guy behind you letting him know how open you are to sharing the bathroom, just so he doesn't feel uncomfortable.

See, I think it's as simple as that. If you think that someone peeing behind you infringes upon your privacy...lock the fucking door. This place is a phenomenon though. Nobody ever goes in...they will wait and wait. Then they go in, and don't lock the door. Why the fuck leave that decision to someone else if you don't want them coming in?

What is there, 3 feet between a dude standing at the urinal and the sink?

You're probably closer to a dude when urinals are in the conventional side-by-side configuration than the set-up in this photo.

I'd use the toilet, but drop my pants and underwear to the floor like a little kid. Just to make the guy at the urinal really uncomfortable as he tries not to laugh.

If its me, I'd die. I'm horrible at not laughing in those types of settings when someone farts, let alone when its intentional like your idea.

I've always wanted to shit in a urinal. And if anyone walked in, I'd pretend to be foreign and not understand the social norm. I also wanted to shit on a display toilet in a store, until Jackass did it. That bit cracks me up every time. Just the nonchalant way he sat there reading a newspaper. I'm laughing just thinking about that. And the car up the pooper and the doctor trying not to laugh.

My deputy commander threw a hissy fit today.

While the entire wing was airpowering hard and engaging in forced camaraderie, the bathrooms in my large squadron with 20-something total people were "too unclean."

In Europe they use less water and a design to toilets that guarantees shit streaks on the bowl every single time. So, someone forgot to brush the bowl after he used it. Also, some paper towels were on the floor next to the overflowing trash can. Oh no!

So, my deputy commander locks both of the men's bathrooms and puts a note on the door that says "Until you learn to clean up after yourself, you are not going to use this. And the women's bathroom is off limits." (I'll have to snap a pic, really.)

So, who shows up at their pre arranged time after these doors have been locked? The contracted out cleaning crew. They couldn't clean these abominably dirty bathrooms. Another person ended up doing so in about 5 minutes. Some sweeping, some quick brushing, and some windexing and everything was fine. This is the Air Force.

And this dude is the most chill person too. He has that Don Draper aloofness and never gets angry. Well, after today I'm completely rethinking my respect for him.

I'd drive home and not come back before I pissed myself in protest. Plus there's a completely separate handicapped bathroom. He can't lock that. We all just shook our heads trying to figure out what the fucking point was. Usually you just tell a senior member to round up the troops and have what we call a "G.I party." Not today, however.

Cross-posted to Cube Life:


We have a breakfast meeting just about every Friday, and each week a team member is responsible for bringing food. Most weeks it's bagels, but sometimes someone will bake something.

Anyway, one of the chronic bakers just cleared out of the shitter without washing his hands. He last brought about a month ago, and made homemade donuts. They were pretty good, though the chocolate with the cocoa/chili pepper glaze were log shaped.

Thanks giff.

I think he beat me to the bagels this morning, but I was hungry, so.... Plus there are a couple of used band-aids lying in the middle of the kitchen floor. I'm going to start referring to it as Rio.

I posted a while ago about a student of mine who took a dump and walked out holding a sub and din't wash his hands. Don't think he was eating while in the stall, but still...

Think of this: if some guys don't wash their hands after they take a shit WHILE THEY KNOW THERE ARE PEOPLE THEY SEE REGULARLY IN THE WASHROOM, just imagine what they are like at home.

Or don't...

Christ, how many people work where you do?

I'd walk out in the middle of the friggen floor and tell whoever did that to come get their ass kicking in front of everyone. You work with someone who has dead bodies hidden.

If I thought I could get a coworker to burst out of the bathroom and challenge the entire floor to a fight over poop, I might consider doing it myself.

Someone cleaned up, but smeared it across the floor in doing so.

More likely scenario: pissed off building custodian who was too angry to do a thorough job, or some random good Samaritan?

Who at your workplace thinks their job includes picking up metaphorical crap, much less the literal kind?

The bathroom at work has 2 stalls. I walk in behind a guy and one of the stalls is taken. He heads to the sink to wash his hands so I can take the open stall right? He can't be mad that I didn't wait to see what he was doing.

We will just assume you said "sore-ee" as you took the stall.
