YOU KNOW WHAT ERKS ME

Do men really care?

We went to the zoo the other day and in the women's bathroom they had stalls with men's urinals in them for mother's with son's. The stalls had the doors on them.

It got me thinking....gee how the mind will wander, But anyway, it got me thinking...Men don't you want your privacy too? If you go to a ball park, a restarant, movie theatre..really anywhere, women have private stalls to do their business, Men have a bunch of urnials all in a row on the wall. Men does it really 'not matter' to you who is looking down at your wee wee?

Even if it is just peeing, don't you want some privacy...not all men pee on trees, am I right?

Ellie - While EVERY place I pee is nobody's business, my most embarrassing whiz occured just a few weeks ago.

Entering a Meijer store, I rushed right into the restroom to get some much needed relief, and was surprised to see no urinal. One stall was occupied, so I jumped into the empty one and let the pee flow.

Afterward, I'm washing my hands at the sink when an elderly woman exits the other stall. Oh shit! That explains the absent urinal.

She seemed somewhat surprised to see me standing there, but took my apology good naturedly, and did not seem at all ruffled by my intrusion. I quickly exited the restroom vowing to pay closer attention to the sign on the door in the future.

For that we have the urinal rule. The urinal rule states that there must always be one empty urinal and/or a [privacy wall between man peeing. Failure to observe this rule will result in discomfort for all parties and dirty looks.

while I have never actually pee'd in a men's room, I have accidently walked in a men's room. Trust me...with the open urinals and men standing there...it's is much more embarassing....
The lady probably found it funny..tee hee hee.

Spend time in the military. Were you pee and who watches you becomes no concern what so ever. Now, if the other guy is watching too closely, that can be concerning...

Honestly, (and I'm not being perverted here) I don't see why there's such a big deal about men/women's rest rooms! We all do the exact same things- except men stand up of course. Dammit Woozie, you forgot the second and most important urinal rule. Those AP exams are really fuckin' your brain up.

"If there is no urinal to use in between two male parties, all parties in the act of pissing must intently look forward at the wall at all cost. Failure to resist the urge to look down at another man's phallis could result in a severe beatdown from a homophobic male....who's probably in all actuality gay."

Yes, it does matter. I'm amazed by some of the designs of mens restrooms. I went into a fast food mens room and I shit you not (little pun there) the toilet set had no stall walls and the door opened up so you look straight in at it. It wasn't a locking door type either!

Then there was the urinal that looked like a shower and had ice that you pee'd into. Trouble is, it was a side-by-side two people set up. No thank you! Not only is there a one urinal between rule, but there is a specific mathematical algorythm test all males must master that says if there are like 5 urinals and one person is at the right most one, then you must go to the left most one. The next person would be forced to use the middle one and the next person should go to the stall. That sort of stuff...

Then again, get me hiking outdoors and I seem fine to pee anywhere and everywhere! Go figure.

Once I went to a concert at a sport stadium, and the line for the ladies was sooo long, I would never have made it!

So I opted (with the protection of my male friend) to use the male loo's.

There were several other women who had the same idea as me.. honestly, the queue to the womens would have taken half an hour.

Most of the guys didnt even bat an eyelid at the bunch of women overtaking their loo's.

I did note however, that there are a lot of men who don't wash their hands after doing their business... and that erk's me!!!

See Variant, that is what I am saying. I think that it is the sterotype that men will go anywhere that allow them to be 'not taken care of' when it comes to the privy's. We were at a car show this weekend changing my son. I noticed that he was at attention so I asked him if he had to pee pee. His daddy asked him to pee next to mommy's car before we put him in a new pull up. My poor little one couldn't do it. It wasn't the potty.

No, we don't need privacy. You leave an empty urinal between yourself and the other guy.

If there isn't space, you look straight ahead - even if you are in a conversation with someone.

It's easy, really.

Although I thoroughly enjoyed E. Craig's story.

Ellie said...

So what if in the case..you have the trough, which is gross by the way, and one guy is standing away but he is peeing so much..it up and splashes on your privy parts?

What then?

Effortlessly Average said...

No no no no. It's just wrong that people assume that because some men might discuss BMs and smell like corn chips, that we ALL accept peeing shoulder to shoulder as if it's just the way of the universe. Personally I don't want to see some other guy's junk throwing off droplets that might very well land on my junk. I'm throwing up a little bit just thinking about it right now. The only way to avoid it is to aim for the slanted side (risky) or arch into the urinal like you're trying to impregnate it (at the risk of touching the inside of the urinal with the tip of your junk, which is also making me vomit a little by imagining). C'mon bathroom designers! Show a little respect! At least install the little semi-wall separator between the urinals! And what the hell is up with the long trough so many places have as the men's room facility? Isn't that like saying "here guys, we're not even going to pretend that you're not animals."

I worked in a factory several years ago. The women's locker room contained individual, private stalls, with nice little benches and removeable shower heads in each. The men's shower was literally a pole sticking up in the middle of the room with about eight shower heads stiking out from the top. No partitions, no privacy. They might as well have thrown a lawn sprinkler into the center of the room and turned on the hose.

I say none of this will change until we men rise up in protest! Who's with me?!
