Men should ace this test ... women may have a little difficulty. There IS a code of "Restroom Etiquette" that MUST be followed.
The following is the urinal configuration in a sample men's room. An X above the number will indicate "in use."

Sample:

| | | x | | | x | (Indicates that urinals 3 and 6 are occupied.)
| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |
-------------------------

You are to identify correctly, based on urinal etiquette, at which stall you are to correctly stand. Good luck!


Easy Section
~~~~~~~~~~

1.)

| | x | | x | | | (Urinals 2 and 4 occupied.)
| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |
-------------------------

Your choice ?



-----------------------------------------------------------------
Correct answer: 6
It's the ONLY one to go to and every guy instinctively knows this.


2.)

| x | | | | | | (Urinal 1 occupied.)
| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |
-------------------------

Your choice?



-----------------------------------------------------------------
Correct answer: 6
Stall 5 is acceptable, but you run a greater risk of being
next to someone who arrives later.


Kind of tricky Section
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

3.)

| | | | | | | (empty)
| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |
--------------------------

Your choice?



-----------------------------------------------------------------
Correct answer: 1 or 6
You are tacitly saying, "I don't want anyone next to me."


4.)

| | x | | x | | x | (2, 4 and 6 occupied)
| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |
-------------------------

Your choice?



-----------------------------------------------------------------
Correct answer: 1
You're stuck being next to at least ONE guy, so you
minimize the impact and get a wall on your left. NEVER
go between TWO guys if you can help it. Exceptions to
this are stadium restrooms where the herd thunders in.


Subtle, tricky, but important to know Section
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

5.)

| | x | | | x | x | (2, 5 and 6 occupied)
| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |
-------------------------

Your choice?



-----------------------------------------------------------------
Correct answer: 4
Believe it or not, 1 and 3 "couples" you with the guy
in stall 2. And we wouldn't want THAT now, would we?
This differs from question 4 in such a subtle way that
the nuances cannot be explained. Suffice to say, only
we men would understand!


VERY tricky indeed Section
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

6.)

| x | x | | | x | x | (1, 2, 5 and 6 occupied)
| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |
-------------------------

Your choice?



-----------------------------------------------------------------
Correct answer: NONE!
You go to the mirror and pretend to comb your hair or
straighten a tie until the urinals "open up" a bit more. If
you have to go REAL, REAL BAD, for god's sake! ...
use a doored stall.


Other parts of the Unwritten Code of the Urinals
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) NO Talking, unless it's a good friend... but even then, keep it terse and unemotional. This ain't no clubhouse.

2) I don't think I need to tell you, absolutely NO touching of anyone other than yourself. A touch of another's elbow is of the highest offense.

3) NO Singing. Period.

4) Glances are for purposes of acknowledgment only..."Yeah, I see you there. I will not look again

:roll: This rivals the Code of the West. :roll:

As opposed to men, women are so much simpler and straight forward: You go in, chat, ask about where someone bought something you admire, talk over the stall walls...no problem!

No big deal, I guess, it's just when I go to the washroom, I do my thing and leave. I don't need to make idle chit-chat while I'm there. Maybe when I was younger, I did.

Many years ago, an old cowboy that didn't get to town much was in, as OT calls it~the local watering hole. A bunch of us were in the dining room eating supper. As the evening progressed, we were all having a good time. This was about the time young guys first grew thier hair long. Well, Dan, the old cowboy, decided Mother Nature was calling. He got up and headed to the men's room. He quickly came back out the door and looked...really confused. Someone went over and asked him what was wrong. "Well, well," he sputtered. "I guess I got in the women's bathroom by mistake." He really was visibly shaken.

Come to find out, he wasn't in the women's bathroom. He was in the men's. But so were a couple of long haired hippie types.

Guess he just wasn't used to seeing men with flowing manes.

It was funny, because he was so serious. :wink:
He really thought he had made a fatal mistake!
