    to have all that room is pretty sweet. One could have a picnic and a dump, and nobody would know.

    The bathrooms at San Francisco's Slanted Door restaurant are interesting. They're like a hybrid setup - a hallway in the middle, with 5 or so toilets behind doors to the left, and sinks behind no doors to the right.

    The toilet rooms are clean and accommodating, if unremarkable. Same can be said about the tray of sinks.

    But the setup has an inherent problem - nobody wants a row of sinks meant to be shared for men and women. It's weird. I don't want to see the beastly women of San Francisco attempt to cover face with makeup, and i'm sure they don't want to see me checking for boogers (or maybe they do).

    I would have much preferred the traditional setup of separate room for men and separate room for women. Or, at the very least, separate unisex rooms in the style of Maialino.

    You obvious never went to DV8 in its heyday, or for that matter the roof bar at the Standard Downtown LA. People were trying to make that layout the thing for a while.

    I have thought a lot about this and I have come to the conclusion that just because they are handicapped doesn't mean they are entitled to not having to wait. I mean, the bigger stall is desirable whether you're handicapped or not. Deal with it.

    Editor's note: I'm a prick.

    Yeah, there are a few restaurants sprinkled through the city that have the shared sink area. Some even out kind of in the open. It is awkward and I always feel that a woman wait to wash her hands is looking at me with disgust and picturing me in the act that occurred just moments before our chance encounter.

    Yup. I always feel like it's super awkward. Not a fan.

    People are so odd. So many accounts of people doing weird things with toilet paper and such. I am sure it makes complete logical sense to these idiots too.

    to the ass clown who thought the front of a stall was the ideal place to dispose of your gum: I hope you get rabies.

    Haha, here in China they've solved this problem by simply pissing between the urinals. If all the urinals are taken, it's not unommon for drunk gentlemen to just unzip and essentially piss on the floor.

    I try to use the handicap stall as often as possible(at least when I have to take a dump, simply because it's usually the only western toilet available. The rest are piss and shit covered squatters that I don't want my clothes to cme anywhere near to.
    LOL, if that's the only thing on the floor, then you're luckier than most...

    I'd just like to mention that today is the 2 year anniversary of this threak. Please continue to perform well in your local public bathrooms and call out, when necessary, disgusting and/or bizarre douchebags. [​IMG]

    ^^^ i just leave door open (maybe even hold it w/ your elbow) so they would know you're just pissing - flush w/ toe, no fuss, no muss

    It's actually worse if the stall (toiletseat etc.) was already disgustingly messed up before you entered.

    There was half of a turd sitting on the toilet seat in the bathroom nearest my office. A guy that works in my department took a photo.
