This is probably the only men's room post on the entire internet written this week that is in no way connected to Senator Larry Craig.
On my floor there are two men's rooms. One has three urinals and one stall, the other has five urinals and two stalls. For a quick leak, I go to the smaller (closer) men's room. When it's time for, um, a sit down, I go to the two-stall bathroom which is farther down the hall.
I have long thought the rules of engagement when faced with a bank of urinals is universally understood.
I am wrong.
Two days in a row, I have been first in, chose Urinal #3 (farthest one) and have been followed in by a student who faced with the choice of #1 or #2. Here's the scenario:
| 1 | 2 | 3 |
. . . . . . x
And they each chose #2—directly adjacent to me! WTF? This wouldn't be the first time moron students here have drawn my ire in the can.
Think you know The Rules? Take the test.
For those of you who missed Art History 101, the picture is of this.
In related news, at the library today, I used one of the crazy new waterless urinals. Saves 40,000 gallons of water a year. Per public urinal. Pretty good. Put that in the commercial building code, please.
