Is it true that in the US you have gaps over, under and on the sides of the doors in public toilets?
If so: Why?
I once had to go at a bowling place. I'm in the middle of it when I see the face of a little boy crawl in underneath the door. The turd was about halfway out and I screamed at the boy. He started to cry and his father started yelling at me really angry. I was in shock. The turd was parted in the middle, one part floating, the other went back up onside me out of fear.
WORST DUMP EVER!
Never did shit in a public restroom after that.
No. They have normal doors and walls go all the way down. When they lock the door there is an indicator that changes from green to red so people on the outside know it's being used.
Reference: I've been there on several vacations.
Would you guys use the one-way-mirror public toilet for a poop?
It's true. I wrote a paper on this topic. But tldr is 3 reasons:
Money - less material to use, cheaper to build. Less snug doors, cheaper to replace. The less comfortable the customer feels, the sooner he leaves and returns to shopping (ie spending $$)
War on Drugs/Sex Culture - Discourages druggies trying to find a private place to shoot up. Same with sex.
Safety - should an earthquake or other structural destruction occur, one is more likely to survive in a more open stall. Also if someone passes out, overdoses, falls asleep, etc, it's easier to rescue them. This isn't because America cares about lives; it's to avoid lawsuits.
I went to America once.
Went to a pub one night and went to take a shit.
The bathroom had a few urinals on the wall and just a toilet sitting there in the middle of the room.
No cubicle or anything
Hold on are you telling me you don't have to taken / vacant indicators on restroom doors in the US? You have to look inside to see if someone is there?
Yes it's true and as a construction worker, I have both installed and demo'd those shitty partition walls and doors in public bathrooms, and I can tell you that an entire bathroom set of partitions can be destroyed with a 20oz framing hammer in about ten fucking minutes. They are shit and they are intentionally shit.
This is the worst I have seen. I mean everyone can see you from the belly button down and you can't see anyone.
To be fair it looks like the idiots placed it upside down.
Well then. If we're talking about US toilets let me ask the Americans here something I witnessed last time I was in the US. What's up with the U shaped ring?
Reminds me of the time I went to Tunisia. We ate Tunisian food and after a couple of hours I got diarrhea (As you do after eating there). Rushed to the closest toilet only to find a hole in the ground and no toilet paper. Instead of the toilet paper there was a little bowl with water. And it was used....
i guess it's a little platform to rest your balls.. if it is thats fucking nasty.
i'm surprised no-one mentioned france yet. like with everything their toilet technology also limps a few centuries behind the rest of the world
yes.. These are french toilets. Maybe in 2017 there are less then before.. But as a child traveling through france I fucking hated it. French people are the worst (whole EU knows)
One thing that freaks me out is when there is a "restroom attendant" in the fucking place I'm going to take a dump.
1. Are these present in your country?
2. What country do you come from?
1 yeah but only in the south as far as I know
Cunts are everywhere.
It's always niggers.
They're not actually paid, the premises just allows them to be there.
I always let them hand me paper towels for my hands and then just walk away
Sometimes you get them in clubs, it's usually some guy Hocking aftershave/deodorant/condoms from one of the sinks.
It's pretty awkward trying to ignite then, even more so when they hand you a paper towel when you're done washing your hands. Just fuck off, I can do it myself.
On the other hand it seems like a shit job. Spend your shift in a small, hot room that hopefully only smells of piss being hassled/told to fuck off by drunk people.
Occasionally they'll get about £20 in cha he from a drunk moron which is good I guess.
My worst UK toilet experience was when I heard someone go for a violent, liquid shit in a urinal because I was in the only cubical. It was about 8:30pm in a family pub. At least it wasn't the sink.
Its made for fags and pedos.
Pedos can grab little boys from under and pull them out of the toilet and rape them
Fags can tap their feet at each other to signal that they want gay sex.
Never thought about it but shitting is the most important thing in the world it is the first thing we are taught
Sometimes someone who is injured or disabled has to sit on the edge and slide back. This makes it easier to do without crushing your nuts, which as a European you obviously do not have.
Toilet water won't rise unless the toilet is clogged
Completely true. If you're tall like me you can even see over the partitions if you're pissing.
(I have a lot of foreskin so I need to dry excess piss with toilet paper otherwise I'll get a wet patch in my pants)
Sometimes yes, sometimes no. All places are supposed to have a disabled accessible facility, sometimes the one for non-disabled and the one for disabled are one in the same.
Sometimes they have these on non-disabled toilets even when there is a separate disabled toilet available, because it's easier just to order the same seat for everything instead of mixing it up.
Sometimes people just order them because they're available, a good price, or whatever, and they're not thinking about injured and disabled people at all, regardless of the reason for the design.
He's saying to look closer at the original picture which, if you did (and you are not retarded), you would see that the toilet paper dispenser is in the fucking shower where the toilet paper would surely be ruined.
>being this dumb
Obviously, look closer at the one you originally quoted.
Really? Do they not flush right or something? Do you guys give them free healthcare?
Kidding aside, we have toilets for the disabled too, but a) you have no idea if that picture was of a toilet for the disabled or not; and b) even if the seat was designed for disabled people sometimes they just get installed on other toilets as well because no one actually gives a shit whether a gap is there or not.
Ok, for all the people talking shit about America. I was invited to a dinner at a nice restaurant in Taiwan. You sat on the floor on cushions around a low table. Apparently, this restaurant was built before indoor plumbing. They had the stall like you have in the first picture, only it was visible to the dining room. Oh, and it was a squat toilet, flush with the floor. See this nice looking chinese lady go in there. Hmmm...I see bush....Hmmmm....I see the biggest turd in the world come out of this chick. I lost my appetite after that, drank beer the rest of the night.
Fuck yes and I hope that we are on the way of taking it a step further and going back to open toilets in public like the romans and greeks! Society is way too fucking private right now and it is an environment that encourages all kinds of fucking weirdos.
