Urinal Rant

Avert thine eyes, if you are not inter­est­ed in men’s uri­nals and the eti­quette that sur­rounds them.

It appears that some men are pre-flush­ers. That is, when they arrive at a uri­nal, they imme­di­ate­ly haul on the han­dle to get a good flush going. I don’t know if they need to hear the rush­ing water to get start­ed, or if they just like a clean uri­nal before pee­ing. I don’t care.

What I do care about, is that, when they are done, they flush again. Please. There is noth­ing nas­ti­er than arriv­ing at a uri­nal to find it full of some­one else’s urine.

So if you’re a pre-flush­er, would you please also be a two-flush­er?

Thank you.

I’d like to note that the auto-flush­ing uri­nal is a handy solu­tion to this. I’d like our gov­ern­ment to do some­thing about man­dat­ing these in new con­struc­tion.
