Last year a company moved in to an office in our building that shares a common area containing the bathrooms. As time has gone on everyone in my office has started noticing some unsettling behavior from the new people. First, let me give you the lay of the land in the men's bathroom. There are three urinals and three stalls. There are also two sinks and a paper towel dispenser that is regularly stocked. Here is a primitive (not to scale) diagram to give you an idea.
- There are a couple of people we've noticed that regularly do not wash their hands after using the facilities.
- They do not respect the straight space at the urinals or in the stalls.
- An extension of #2 really, but there are several of these guys that will always choose urinal 2 (U-2 in the diagram) when they are the first man in which essentially makes all of the urinals off limits.
General rules I think everyone should play by in this bathroom configuration:
- Always choose U-1, U-3 (or if the situation demands go with T-1 or T-3) if you are the first man in.
- If you are the second person in make sure you leave at least one urinal/stall between you and the first man.
- What about if U-1 and U-3 are taken? Feel free to bump over to T-1 or T-3 (you don't have to sit down).
- Only use U-2 or T-2 if there is no other choice.
Nunnrey (as our resident bathroom specialist), can you provide any additional insights/rules or corrections?
Isn't there a flash game out there about this? I wonder how that entire office missed it.
