Don't use adjacent urinals? Don't want to get kooties now.  Yeah sure

I get the feeling this was made by a bunch of middle schoolers.

It can be counted as a joke for the first minute. Then it gets very annoying and monotonous. And I agree about middle schoolers. People use adjacent urinals all the time. Personally I never think of my choice, just go towards a free one, no matter where it is. Talking is very common in restrooms.

Male restroom etiquette 101

1. Practice the every other rule. If there are three urinals take one on the end, not the middle.

2. Eyes forward, no exceptions.

3. Limit conversation to the following phrases:
"Man I'm so drunk"
"Dude, think I could hook up with that girl?"
"Think she has a friend?"

4. Only shake it twice, any thing more and you’re playing with yourself.


These rules will ensure your survival

Sure its a little long, but its great satire on male bathroom behaviour. Hell, how many people do you know that are 'pee shy'? The whole concept of public restrooms and how we act terrifies us! Oh no! Another man may see my wee-wee! Or worse, I may see his!

Exactly! Why can't everyone just freakin calm down. It's not the end of the world. People are way over protective these days. Go in, do your business, and leave. It doesn't matter what urinal you take, it simply doesn't. Peeing in a urinal adjacent to another person is not a crime against humanity. It doesn't mean anything.

I wonder what a lot of these people would do in the military. Privacy? Yeah privacy is 5 minutes alone in the port-a-john, with it 140 degrees inside of it, trying to rub one out before someone gets tired of waiting and starts banging on the door.

What do you think tankers do when they need to piss? What do you think we do when we're flying around, and one of us needs to take a piss? (and drinking freakin 8qts a day MAKES YOU WANT TO PISS!) Do you think I go, "Hey guys, I gotta piss. Lets land over by that guy with a gun in his hand and SAM slung over his shoulder. It'll only take a few seconds."

Hell no! You piss in a water bottle. (hence the invention of the piss bomb) If you're piss shy... well you're going to have a very long 13 months.

Amen to that! Not only in the military, but that applies to many situations. People are just too sick and preverted nowadays. It's relly a shame to see where our society is heading. I'm still surprised people walk around in gym locker rooms naked. I would have thought many would find it nastya by now, and stop doing it.  Yeah sure

When nature calls, best to answer it eh!!! I agree being Pee shy is a small thing that one can over come, I bet if someone was piss shy and joined the forces, 13 months later I think he/she will beat it, if not, they got problems deeper then that.

I go in, come aout as fast as possible. I use a stall and that way I don't have to talk to anyone. Anyways I would not feel confortable talking to someone while I am taking a piss.

One of the funniest things I ever saw happened the first time I visited the latrine at an army barracks. I walked in, turned the corner and was confronted by the sight of bare knees as far as the eye could see. The stalls did a reasonable job of hiding your face but not a lot else!

I hate to piss in the stalls. I don't care I have to piss beside someone I'll go to any open urinal. I've got nothing to hide.

Also, none of that wussy toilet paper on the seat. I plop myself down on a dry seat and do my business. Only pussies (no pun intended) do that toilet paper on the seat thing. Your not going to get anything from sitting on a toilet seat. Grow some balls.

From the peanut gallery (no pun intended)...

Women can be pretty nasty, too. When I spent a summer at college, we had a problem with this one girl who not only grafittied the walls every weekend, but also trashed the bathroom over and over, incurring excess maintenance charges for all of us. Anyway, we did manage to correct the bathroom-trashing by putting up signs in each stall and the entrance to the showers that read "Steps for Proper Bathroom Use."

Number Ten:
Do not leave anything in the bathroom that you don't want stuck to your room door.
Up, up and away!

Haha, so true. I use to be squeamish, but then I though, what do I care? It's only my ass. It's not like I'm putting my face on the thing. If people have pissed on the seat, I'm not going to, but that's about it.

Also, once you have to use a gang-bang shower, you won't worry about these types of things anymore.

Well, I must disagree with that non sense, if you looked at the micro bacteria on toilet seats you might change your mind. People do disgusting things in there, and what you dont see could be much worse then what you do see. I will not sit my ass on any public seat unless its sanitized or there is a cover that is disposable.

Do you realize how many bacteria are on every single thing you touch throughout the day, especially in public? It's one thing to be clean, and another to be paranoid about bacteria.

Well, Thats fine some bacteria is harmless, but if you think about what goes on in the restroom, its is a bio hazard. People can be very dirty, ie vomit, shit, piss, and as gross as it seems cum on toilet seats, why the hell would I want to sit on something as gross as that. Yes I am a germaphobe, I wash my hands, I dont handle door knobs, touch other public things that people put their hands on, and I clean my hands everytime I handle money.

Heard a study on a doctor show last week that showed you get more bacteria from your keyboard than a toilet seat. Don't forget the door handle on your way out of the john too.
Besides, exactly what disgusting things are we talking about? Sh*t? You'll see it. Piss? Its sterile in a healthy human. Spit? Whats that gonna do to your pastey cheeks?

You go through life touching everything with your hands and you're afraid of bacteria on your ass-cheeks? There is no case of anyone catching anything from a toilet seat. That is because bacteria does not get into the body unless you have an open cut. In that case you would not use a toilet seat without covering the cut and/or the seat. In that case ONLY.

The beginning of the movies states that there are different loo codes in the across the world.. so why do the author want to impose their own code on everyone else?

It wasnt that funny anyway. But well done.

The following video on the other hand, breaks all forementionned codes, yet is funny:



As for me I just follow a handful of rules:
- use the urinals if possible it's seen as more manly as using the stall
- dont shout, it breaks other's concentration
- dont look at other peoples winkies, this is a rule of honour between men. Or if really want to, do so discretely.

I don’t think it’s strange to use a urinal next to another guy as long as it’s the only one available, but if there’s one person in the bathroom, six urinals, and you walk up to the one next to the guy, I think that’s weird.

And I think that unless you’re taking a crap or all the urinals are taken, stay out of the stall! The ones with the sinks and mirrors in them are the worse. Yes, it’s convenient, but when there’s a line of people waiting to get into a stall and you’re fixing your hair in the mirror, there’s a problem. I’m gonna need you to vacate the stall and fix your hair at the main sink so that I can do what I need to do.

As far as toilet seats, sitting on one doesn’t bother me. If it’s wet, I wipe it off and do my business. People fumble around in there with all that toilet paper trying to cover the seat and I don't see a need for all that.

I have always thought is strange for men to talk in public bathrooms, but whatever. What I find most disturbing is when guys are on the phone sitting in a stall! I have heard guys in the middle of a business conference call! That is just creepy especially for the people on the other end of the line!

Only shake it twice, any thing more and you’re playing with yourself.

Agreed!

Ok, here's another twist to the "every other urinal" rule:

For example -- under "which urinal to select" -- say there are 5 urinals. #1 and #3 are in use --- so normally, one would choose #5, right?

Now say the 5th urinal was a kiddie urinal, and hangs much lower on the wall...
now which urinal do you choose? Would you continue to use the kiddie urinal, or go ahead and use #2 or #4, knowing that it's okay to use those when all other slots are full?

As for the no talking rule, I have no problem with conversation. I don't get what the big deal is. At work, we talk at the urinal all the time and have had conversations between stalls. It's no big deal. Everyone goes to the bathroom.

I would suggest that the no talking rule should be limited to, "Don't talk to strangers." and that's it.

It's just a washroom.

Watch out for Spray Back !!!

I hate using urinals when wearing light coloured trousers/jeans. It is very dangerous as they tend to show up the spray back !!!.

Also for some reason the urinals that they have in LHR and MAN seem to create a spray back no matter where you aim or what the force of the flow is !!!. You can even see it on dark couloured trousers from those ones.

I like the urinals they have in Eurpoe that tend to be more enclosed to stop the spray back.

I hate the metal trough types that they have in bars and clubs - nothing worse than someone coming in and letting 4 pints of beer out at 50psi onto the metal back plate which sends their spray back all over you  vomit
