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.
I haven't seen them anywhere but in the military.

Is there a color code for a slightly reddish-pink hue because you ate a bunch of beets the day before?

Someone left anti-circumcision (or pro-foreskin?) paraphernalia in the bathroom here at work. TLC Tugger. Heh.

Hand-written sign taped to the men's room this morning:

D'NOT USE
BATHROOM CLOSET


There is no closet in the bathroom. We weren't sure if the note-writer misspelled "closed", or somehow combined "bathroom" and "water closet". I can't figure out how "D'NOT" looked right to someone.

This is a bit old, but I just happened by it recently. Ya know how the military has a little sexual assault problem? And by "little" I mean "a giant, calamitous clusterfuck of epic proportions." Well this is how the Air Force deals with it:

So apparently my office building has installed new motion sensor lighting in the bathroom...lights come on when you open the door, etc.

However, they don't give you much time to um, handle business. They went off about 15 seconds later. Do you know how hard it is to read in the dark?

So, here's a thing:

Do any of you guys use foot to bring the seat down on the toilet. A LOT of folks do that here at work, and the only reason I bring it up.

IT'S REALLY FUCKING LOUD!

If you are in a bathroom and you produce a loud noise, keep in mind that sound is super amplified by all the tile. Dude did that in the stall next to me yesterday and my ears were ringing.

I'm not sure I can even get my foot that high.

What about power pissers. i'm sitting in the stall and I can hear a guy pissing so hard into the urinal that it echos. Is that just to prove that he's big?

I'd think the bigger you are, the closer to the water you'd be, and the quieter the piss would be. Could just be a full bladder and healthy prostate.

I had to take a mid-afternoon dump, my preferred stall was taken and I didn't feel like walking downstairs, so I used the handicap accessible stall, hoping it wouldn't happen again. It's only been a couple of times, but even once was enough to cause me to prefer not to use this toilet. Maybe I should have taken it as a bad sign when I sat down awkwardly and brushed my junk on the seat. Or maybe I figured at that point, what the fuck difference does make? Sure enough, after whatever set of muscles you use to pee relaxed and the poop muscles stepped up, there they go. My giant fucking balls dip into the fucking apparently consistently just a bit too high you would think someone else would have fucking complained by now but yeah I guess not because what are they going to say water. Fuck. I need a shower. I'm going home.

NOT COOL



My wife cleaned it up. Fans and candles everywhere last night. I heroically kept my chocolate soft serve joke to myself when I offered to go out for ice cream last night. Though we did have a power outage here at work today, and when I sent her the email titled "brown out" I added "Second day in a row!!!".
