unfortunately, as it stands, you do look like that guy with prostate problems who just can't ever seem to get good flow.

Problem is...we are going back to the same meeting. No option to return again separately.

The men's room at Oceana Restaurant in NYC is quite nice, and most of this niceness is due to the fact that they're unremarkable. There's basically three stalls, one big stall that holds 3 urinals (a stall for each urinal would have been ideal), and two stalls with standard issue toilets. It isn't the biggest room, but the fact that it's not down a set of stairs is welcome for NYC restaurant restrooms. A downside would be the general con-trad decor where everything seemed to be peach in color, but whatever. The automatic sinks were also a downside, but they eventally worked. The hand towels were excellent.


the biggest downside is you very nearly have to walk into the open kitchen to get there. It's kind of weird at first, and I expected to get yelled at were it not for the guy pointing to the hallway (apparently i'm not the only one who found this confusing).

Some automatic sinks are awesome. The ones that aren't Low-Flow. I've never been to Oceana.

i don't like waving my hands around like i'm in a religious choir just to get the water flowing. too often this is the case.


i dislike automatic flushing toilets as well (urinals are excluded, those are fine). I feel like half the time I'm on one, which is fairly infrequently, they flush while i'm still seated. I wasn't done god damn it!

At work we have the autoflush toilets. They are awful. Just squeezing out a poop makes them go off practically sucking it right out of your body almost prolapsing your rectum.

The ones in my building are old school "high flow" (a good thing), but when they flush it is like an airplane taking off. I think of the Curb Your Enthusiasm episode where Larry is deafened by a roaring toilet every time it happens.

Sometimes when I want to be really productive at work, I do some work while on the throne. Is that weird? I mean, I actually bring a pen and some paperwork with me for reading, editing, drafting.

Based on all of the bathroom observations logged in this thread that would be in about the 2nd percentile of weirdness.

I forget what the conclusion was. Wasn't so he don't have to touch the door handle?

I work on the throne. This also keeps people from asking to borrow my iPad. :fonz:

The comments on that are real solid.
