    How do all of you guys feel about urinal conversations? Like, you pull into the urinal, and a guy's next to you, and he start chatting with you....

    Personally, I have no problem with this. Kind of takes the pressure off.... ;)

  4. Only if i know the person. But even then its a bit weird.

    I remember being at a concert and walking into the loo and saw a guy from a band we'd done shows with. We kind of new each other but not that well. I was next to him, said "hey you're in Raven Black Night. hows things?" we had a good chat... oddly the urinal became empty pretty quickly... *shrugs* probably had a lot to do with him saying "Damo from Dephiler right? yeah you guys were crazy last gig"

    And the amount of girls who are shocked to hear that men pee against a wall.. or a trough as some of us call it. "thats so primitive!" hmmmm

    :D:D

    I adhere to the code of the urinal pretty strictly. i.e.:

    Don't use the urinal right next to someone if other ones are available.

    No talking while peeing.

    No looking at other men's junk.

    Verboten!

    No talking. No proximity less than 3 feet unless absolutely necessary. No eye contact (any accidental eye contact accompanied by blunt affect and a terse nod.)

    The restroom is no place to mess around; get in, get'er done, get out. And wash your hands.

    Flush? Not at bars, unless I am using the bottom of my shoe. I don't touch anything that didn't come in with my, this includes the sink. I don't have a habit of going on my hands, and certainly don't want to touch a faucet that has been touched by hundreds of men after they just got done themselves.

    I'll leave with my own germs, but not yours.

    I live in a dorm. The bathroom on my wing, more specifically the urinal on my wing, gets used by approximately 30 men daily, and God knows that nature calls numerous times daily for each one of us. When you walk into the bathroom on my floor, you are immediately nauseated with the smell of urine and feces. This could be remedied simply by flushing the ******* toilet.

    Bars I agree are a completely different story. Anywhere else, for goodness sakes it doesn't take much effort--press the lever!!
     
  11. The amount I talk depends on :

    Alcohol consumed
    How funny I am at that time.

    :D

    And, flush the damn thing. Wash your hands :)
     
  12. I'm a secret agent.:rolleyes:

    If I let my guard down during the pause that refreshes, think of the classified information that could leak out! :p

    I don't like talking to a guy while I'm holding my mule. Worse yet i don't like talking to a guy while he's holding his.

    Urinal is Latin for "no speaky."

    Obey the Latin.
     
  17. It should also be noted that many a hand is struck (after washing) in lucrative Gentlemen's agreements in the tiled room that reverberates.

    Hence the saying: Urine the money. :rolleyes:

    Mike :p :D

    Please wash hands before posting a response.
