PDA

View Full Version : I've been doing some thinking about bathrooms.

We've got separate men's and women's bathrooms pretty much everywhere, and I can see why, given current bathroom architecture: urinals out in the open, stall walls that don't go all the way to the ground, etc.

While it's not an issue in big, busy bathrooms like Arrowhead Stadium, it's a waste of space and fixtures in most typical office or work environments. What's wrong with putting the stall walls all the way to the ground so that underwear and feet aren't visible, and adding a little "occupied/unoccupied" dealybob that rotates when someone locks the door? Urinals could be in a similar type of privacy enclosure.

This would save a lot of space and cost in most work environments, and I see no reason why both genders can't share a sink and washup area. Maybe this wouldn't work in night clubs, where different genders may need private primping areas as well as private spaces for Panthers cheerleaders, but again, I'm talking about your typical office or work environment where bathrooms are usually running at about 10 percent of capacity.

What do you think? Would this bother you? Or would it be no big deal?

Can we change the subject?

I'm dead set against dealybobs.

Because women don't want you to hear the sounds they make when dropping a load.

There's no way that females would want a strange man next to them taking a dump.

That, and since women go to the restroom in clumps of women, I don't think this idea will fly.

I don't know how I would react to a woman in the stall next to me taking a big, nasty, smelly, gassy, noisy Taco dump.

I think it's just a habit that could easily change. It's like pumping our own gas; once an economic argument was made, we all stopped expecting a service station attendant to come out.

Women can BUHLOW UP a head 10 times worse than a guy...no thanks. The last male only bastion in the entire world--the throne room--should stay that way.

I'll have you know that the dealybob sector employees several thousand hard-working Americans.

I'd go the other way and make totally seperate bathrooms much like you have at home. Here's the critical part: They must each have their own ventilation system. I'm tired of walking in and being assaulted by a green cloud of disgust. Also, if you're one of those guys that DOES destroy the air quality for the rest of us: stay in your f**king stall until we're all gone. We don't need to be able to associate a smell to the face.

More importantly and more easily solved: Lift the lid before you piss. How many times have you gone into a restroom to take a crap only to find some inconsiderate a**hole was too lazy to pick up the lid and too stupid to keep from pissing all over the seat? Earth to you "I'm in a hurry" motherf**kers, if you're that inconsiderate the odds are you aren't that important, either.

How many women are in a clump?

I hate the dealybob employees for one reason...they took over and destoryed the doohickey business and my father was a doohickey employee.

DOWN with dealybobs!

I think you are just pimping dealybobs just like you did the cat industry.

Depends on how tightly you compress them.

A clump of women will contain every woman in the room you want to bang plus the one you just pissed off.

I would prefer all restrooms to be single occupancy.
I don't like being walked in on while creating a work of art.

Not one of the better ideas I have heard lately, but nice try. It would really be too much to tolerate, having perfume sprayed in the John.

While this idea may be cost effective, it runs counter to societal norms.

Bathroom activity carries with it a certain vulnerability.

Think back to your dating days and the progression of your intimacy. Farting in the presence of a prospective mate probably occured much latter in the progression - after other intimate moments like kissing, or sex, or professing "love".

Now, you may say that this doesn't apply to the work place. BUT... this preservation of modesty does apply. Subconsciously, we treat members of the opposite sex with some of the same courtesies that occur in courtship. Unconsciously, we know that if there were a nuclear attack, you and a previously undesirable coworker may be the only two survivors.

My 2 Cents....

I would not want the Mens Room to smell with some dirty skanks period.


Remember the Bears can Smell the Menstration...
