Urinal Bathroom Etiquette

15 posts in this topic

It is not that hard-When you enter, you take the farthest one to one side or the other. Any subsequent entries should slot in every other spot. Exceptions can be made if you know each other already or every other stall has the stupid one that is only a foot off the ground for kids. If every other stall is full pick the one where people seem most likely to be finished beside you. - NO looking to the side. Eyes straight ahead at all times. Its good when they put something there for you to read. - NO shaking it more than a few times-Ohteriwse youre just playing with yourself. -NO leaning your arms or hands against the wall or stall side blinders/privacy dividers. Stand there and use at least oen hand to hold your junk. -NO making relieved noises regardless of how relieved you are. -PUT your junk away and start to zip up before turning to face new visitors to the restroom. WHat am I missing?

Before filling in directly next to an occupied urinal, opt for an empty stall. Do NOT pee all over the seat however, it's the MEN'S room. It's perfectly acceptable to leave the seat up!

I dunno about that one. People are more likely to NEED (and I mean really NEED!) a full stall than a urinal, if you know what I mean…

If there are a few open stalls, then yes, but they're often limited. Plus, you have to lift the seat many times, which involves touching that surface.

BTW, I prefer restrooms that have the "maze" doors, not actual doors that require opening. No touching a surface unwashed hands have touched a thousand times that day with the "maze" style.

Place your junk over the urinal to urinate. No peeing on the floor. No one like pee all over the soles of their shoes.

Flush (if not automatic)

Get/Carry a kleenex if you don't like touching the handle. I keep Kleenex packets in the car as well as anti-bacterial liquid

Really? So you're saying this move I've been using for years isn't kosher? :-P

I'm frequently surprised by the number of guys who are unfamiliar with the International Choice of Urinal Protocol.

Carrying your own Kleenex could cost you your man card. Grab a paper towel or some TP on the way in.... ;-)

A real man would grab the guys hand next to him and force him to flush!

Agreed, and that's what I do. The Kleenex and antibacterial remain in the car ... unless I'm on a date. Then I may ask the woman if she needs a tissue as in "Need anything before we go in? Tissue, antibacterial liquid, condoms, gum, concealed weapon?"

:-D

Please do not ask "what is up" to the guy next to you ...

Carry your phone conversation out side the rest room, if you must carry on a loud phone conversation, try using the country's language of which you are currently taking a whiz in

I am not 100% sure why some feel it manditoty to spit prior to using the urinal ...

Please for the love of god, if you must preform nose maintaince, please do so in the stall and do leave residue on the wall top of the urnial ...

Public service announcement from the plumber: The low urinals are not for kids (although they do work well for them) , they are actually ADA.

Hmmm. And I always thought the low ones were for people that are long. ;-)

Are they?  In our labs in Boston, there was this one manager I will call, "Little Napoleon".  He was a tyrant.  The only bathroom on that floor, the 3rd floor in a chemical research lab, had a low urinal.  Obviously no children work in a research lab.  Ipso facto: the low urinal was for him! :-D

I didn't say anything about who actually uses them, and what they work well for... :)
