thanks

September 11, 2011

Why would anybody choose this:

When you could choose this:

As far as I know (and I know a LOT), there are no handicapped people in my building.

Let me put that another way. There are most certainly handicapped people in my building. But nobody in my building uses a wheelchair.

So again, given the choice, and the guarantee you will never exit the stall to find a wheelchair-bound co-worker sadly shaking his head and sitting in a mess, why, why would you choose a stall where your elbows hits the walls instead of a cathedral with everything but a cloister?

And yet, as I enter the outhouse at work, the giant pleasure palace seems consistently empty, as if someone is saving it for me.

So, um. Thanks?

    Your coworker’s reluctance is your gain.

    Only risks, albeit unlikely: wheelchair visitor, coworker is injured and using wheelchair.

      well here’s the thing. let’s say there IS one wheelchair bound person in the building. what, he should have exclusive access to 25% of the stalls in the building?

      i say no.

    oooh, oooh, i just saw this on an episode of “always sunny in philadelphia”, just rent a wheelchair and say you have polio.

    The toilet paper looks quite far away in the pleasure palace. Deceptive angle of the photograph?

    • rick Says:

      Looks like about 9 tiles. If they are 2-inch tiles, that does seem to be quite a stretch, especially if you are one of those for whom the facility was constructed.

        it’s a an illusion. the tp is right there.

        the problem is, turns out, the rolls dont spin freely enough. they stick, so i keep pulling off one square at a time.

        it aggravates me.

          ” so i keep pulling off one square at a time”… see, you are handicapped and deserve to be in there.

            Badabing. Cracked me up, thanks Mike.

              Why does a place like this have the type of holders that the roll doesn’t spin freely. I usually see that along with paper that is less than durable. By the time I get the amount of paper I need my blood pressure has spiked. And if there’s a lot of paperwork involved then the whole event is ruined. Are they afraid you’re going to use a whole roll or spin it all over the floor? I can see in a public bathroom at the bus station but in the company’s restrooms? Please. Besides, there’s an extra roll on the toilet itself so I’m baffled.

    Worst day of my career was when I walked out of the handicap stall to see a wheelchair-bound colleague sitting there and waiting. I still have nightmares. Thankfully, I don’t work there anymore and those nightmares are not so vibrant to keep me from using the relatively palatial space.

    Umm you choose the small one when the handicap one has what we refer to as Turdzilla. Turdzilla won’t flush unless beaten with a stick. Our janitor retains said stick. I have a photo if Turdzilla if you like….

  6. Scott Says:

    Doesn’t the big stall, with all the space, sort of feel like doing it in the open, outdoors, and therefore make it less comfortable? My two cents.

    The walls in the narrow stall lend themselves to equidistant pushing. I feel like I could really get some work done in there, bowel evacuation-wise.
