renovations and faux pas
March 4, 2011
Kim and I are a bit hard on phones. She has an iPhone with a cracked screen. I have a Samsung Galaxy with, yup, a cracked screen.
We finally decided to get hers fixed, so I met her and Ian at the Fashion Place Mall where they have a phone accessory kiosk that also fixes iPhone screens. I’ve gotten away from the whole “meeting ex-KGB agents in 7-Eleven parking lots and going with them to shady neighborhoods” thing.
Anyway, this isn’t about phones. Believe it or not, it’s about bathrooms.
Fashion Place Mall has been under renovation about as long as Da Vinci’s The Last Supper, and like The Last Supper, you can use/see it during the process.
I have to say, the Fashion Place Mall people have their priorities straight. While the exterior of the mall is partially covered in scaffolding, they have the bathrooms done.
Does this look like a mall bathroom to you?
So, while we were in there, someone committed one of the great bathroom faux pas. The first, of course, is talking in the bathroom, but only slightly less well known is leaning on the urinal stall dividers.
I hate that. Hate it.
But I don’t hate it enough to risk taking a picture of the 400 lb man committing the atrocity.
So, here’s a reenactment:
I guess I’ll have to burn that shirt now. That’s how I’m willing to sacrifice for my art.
