Do you wish a men's bathroom could be more like a ladie's room?
The men's room in my office is pretty blah. It's a tiny space with that awful white subway tile on the walls, white urinals, and gray stalls. I was working late the other night. The place was empty, so I decided to sneak into the ladies' room to get a "pee-k" (thank you, I'll be here all week lmao), and I was awestruck by how different it was. When you first walk in, there's a large foyer area painted in robin egg blue. In the foyer, is a mirrored ebony white vanity with a vase of roses. OK, the flowers were cheap and plastic, but they lend a soothing effect. The foyer leads you to the actual "bathroom area" which is painted a gorgeous saffron yellow. There are even pictures on the wall, each with a different flower...gladiola, petunia, and calla lily to name three. It's no wonder women spend so much time in the bathroom. If the men's room looked like that, I'd want to spend as much time as possible too. So how come ladies' rooms are so colorful, while men's room are so dull?
If you're a girleena that would be great!
You must have gotten there early.
Women are pigs when it comes to ladies rooms.
And yet they all spread their fat asses on the toilet seat, give a push, and shoot their crap into the bowl, just like we men do. Except the ladies have plastic flowers.
Happily as my firm's CEO I have a private bathroom and shower facilities as part of my office suite and it's decorated exactly the way I want, but I understand your desire for plastic flowers and a fainting couch, OP, and presumably one of those nice cushioned toilet seats you could use as you sit down to pee. You just want a little consideration.
This was was immaculate and smelled of jasmine.
Have you seen the fallen sequins and tear puddles in our men's
I would take it up with management, OP.
Tell management that you feel cheated because the men's room isn't pretty like the women's, with pretty pastel walls, pretty pictures on the walls, and pretty flowers in pretty vase.
Tell them that it's important to you to feel pretty while taking a dump in pretty surroundings. It would make everyone's day so much more pleasant.
I hate to admit I know this...
Women's rooms smell much worse than man's rooms.
When a man needs to fart, he farts. Women save it up until they get to the restroom.
The ladies' room contains more methane than a New Zealand sheep pasture.
OP, the Woman's Lounge was designed as a respite for the weaker sex to recover from womanly troubles - nerves, hoo-ha issues, headaches. stress, and fainting.
Their sweaty lady parts are also bound up in panties and panty hose, so that when those panties come off, ewww.
In addition, r9, you forgot the PERIOD....menstrual cramps
[quote]Women are pigs when it comes to ladies rooms.
This is true, apparently. I hear horror stories from female coworkers about piss on the floor, crap on the toilet seat and sometimes menstrual blood.
My favorite public bathrooms have glory holes. Screw the flowers and cut famine things.
Straight men don't need that shit to take a dump, fag. Get back to your cubicle.
Girly girly girleenas
I have yet to discover a fetus in a urinal.
I have never worked in an office where the women's room was decorated any differently from the men's. They've always been pretty much the same, minus urinals. And, yes, women are pigs in there, and it's disgusting.
Where the farting issue is concerned, though, r8, better to have the methane contained to one area that's not likely to smell great under any circumstances, than to have people crop dusting the hallways, or booby-trapping their offices with stealth bombs. I had one gigantically obese, alcoholic male coworker whose office I quickly learned never to step into without asking if the air was clear.
I wonder if shit-smearing is more common among men than women, or vice-versa?
OP, won't they ask you HOW you know the ladies' room is so pretteh?
I convinced my employer to install a harness and enema hook in the men's bathroom and couldn't be happier.
As someone with six years of janitorial experience (truth), I can say that women's rest rooms are left in a worse state than men's, that women are lazy when it comes to cleaning up after themselves, and that I encountered much more disgusting and disgraceful evidence of depraved and ineffective personal hygiene in women's quarters than I ever found in men's.
Men's rooms showed that a certain percentage were pranksters (the boogers on the urinal wall, the graffiti, the occasional stuffed and flooding toilet) and some were slovenly. Women's rooms, on the other hand, showed signs of a sex that is lazy, refuses to take responsibility for its own messes (Perhaps the "I'm not the housewife here" mentality leads to passive aggression when it comes to dropping shitty toilet paper into the toilet rather than on the floor beside it.), and is just plain insane (Constant foot prints in the toilet seats from high-up squatters for whom the toilet seat covers do not offer enough "protection" against ass skin of strangers and signs that the faucets were avoided because of germs.) I always started with cleaning the doorknobs and door plates (old building but immaculately preserved furnishings in a historic office building full of high-end attorneys, CPAs, non-profits and foundation offices.) The doors and doorknobs invariably had shit on them in the ladies' rooms.

I would want pretty bathroom scenery too if I had to hover over a seat every time I to tinkle, that sucks
Yes OP, just this morning I was thinking I wanted to go into a toilet to find it plugged up by a maxi-pad some frau decided to flush. I also long to catch a glimpse of a discarded tampon hiding behind the toilet and the sneaky peak of a tampon string hanging out of the trashcan. The thing I long to see most though is the desperate Frau, beating on the feminine hygiene product machine that just took her money. You just know what is going on in her pants and it makes you want to vomit.
OP, have you had your testosterone level checked, dude?
Christ Almighty, I hate gay men who hate women (which, it seems, is all of them). I often wonder why I still come here.
However, I did stop paying the $18.
Right, OP. The place could look like the Palace of Versailles and it's still somewhere people poop. I'd rather spend as little time as there as possible. As long as it's clean, I'm fine.
I pooped in the garden of Versailles. Just kidding...I just peed.
[quote]Constant foot prints in the toilet seats from high-up squatters
WTF?! You mean women actually stand on the toilet?
"You mean women actually stand on the toilet?"
I tap danced on mine.
Foreign women who are used to the hole in the floor type toilet stand on the seat. And they make a mess.
Who wants to sit on some other woman's shoe prints?
One of the nice features of ladies room is the sofa and table. It's a better place to chat next to the toilets than being talked to in front of the urinal.
All I want is a restroom where you don't have to touch a door handle after you've washed your hands, like is done in casinos. And why do some restrooms have a door to enter the sink area, and then another door to enter the toilet area? And where I currently work, you have an entry door followed by another entry door. What the fuck is that all about? What's with all of the fucking doors?
The only thing men's rooms need is lockable stalls with glory-holes.
I took a dump once at Hearst Castle in San Simeon.
Note to self, they don't flush.
Um, R35 because crapping and pissing, in developed countries, isn't a group activity or spectator sport.
I worked as a student custodian at the university I went to, and noticed this in the administration building. The women's restroom had a foyer with padded benches, a vanity and mirror, and was nicely decorated. The men's room...well, you just walked right into the "business" section. No flowers.
OP, do you always get this emotional when it's your time of the month?
Did you post in the wrong thread, R28, or is this just a comment for general consumption?
"This is true, apparently. I hear horror stories from female coworkers about piss on the floor, crap on the toilet seat and sometimes menstrual blood"
Get a grip fag. No women's bathroom I've ever been in (and I've been in many)have EVER had that kind of thing. I've been in few men's restrooms though (emergency situation) and it's reeks of piss and shit.
"Women's rooms, on the other hand, showed signs of a sex that is lazy, refuses to take responsibility for its own messes (Perhaps the "I'm not the housewife here" mentality leads to passive aggression when it comes to dropping shitty toilet paper into the toilet rather than on the floor beside it.), and is just plain insane (Constant foot prints in the toilet seats from high-up squatters for whom the toilet seat covers do not offer enough "protection" against ass skin of strangers and signs that the faucets were avoided because of germs"
Fuck yourself you misogynist POS. I wonder why yo momma bothered w/you. Women will not fuck up a place they inhabit for 10+ hrs. because they are "not the housewife". A woman will not get up on her feet on the seat to "high squat", she'll use the protection covers even if it takes 10 of them. Nor will a woman just toss her feminine hygiene products under seats. You obviously weren't an asset to your janitorial crew and they probably laughed at you behind your back.
Maybe R28 is upset because some gay men in this thread don't like plastic flowers and she happens to love them.
"Did you post in the wrong thread, [R28], or is this just a comment for general consumption?"
R's comment can be applied to just about any human experience post on DL. All DL queens hate women, it's OBVIOUS they hate women. Could be jealousy, envy, or just lack of affection/love/nurture when they were babies.
I second the idea that women are pigs in the bathroom. In my office, the building mgr placed signs in each stall with tips on how to keep the bathroom clean. I try to limit my trips to 1-2 a day. Luckily I work from home most of the time so I have access to a nice clean bathroom.
Get rid of the urinal dividers in all men's rooms, and I'll be fine. Damn, those boner killer dividers bug me.
OP, you're ready to fly right outta here, aren't ya?
[quote]A woman will not get up on her feet on the seat to "high squat"
Other posters disagree.
R42 you're really fucked up. Did Daddy touch you?
You're screeching and freaking out about what people are saying about public toilets? You're just a mess, a complete fucked up mental case who can't deal with the fact that your personal experiences differ from that of 7 billion other personal experiences.
I've heard more than one woman complain about the filth in womens' toilets, and so have you. I've also heard of women standing on and squatting over public toilets and two that I know have told me that they do it. Deal with it, it's reality.
You need to come to grips, sweetie, or continue to live in misery and pain. You're obviously in deep pain and you need to get help. A discussion about public toilets is nothing to get upset about, yet here you are, having a shit-fit.
Get help now, please, for your own sake.
[quote]Could be jealousy, envy, or just lack of affection/love/nurture when they were babies.
Look who's talking.
Chelsea Handler was just talking about this the other night...how women's bathrooms are fucking disgusting.
No. Actually, I want a urinal for my home.
Will there be paper bags to jam our bloody tampons in?!
I worked at Disneyland as a teen (cleaning up restrooms was a part of it) and I can corroborate that women's public restrooms at least are ghastly. At least in Anaheim in the '90s. Men's rooms were no picnic either, but I was expecting that men's rooms would be dirty and gross. I was shocked at how clean men's rooms were in comparison to the grossness I witnessed from the "fairer, cleaner" sex: tampons thrown on the floor and diapers stuffed into the tampon receptacle box were only the beginning of the horror.
I'm going to use this thread to point out that my thread entitle, "Do you pass gas in front of your significant other?" has been deleted, just as I suspected it would be! Luckily I posted it the day before my membership was scheduled to expire, so mister iron-fist webmaster couldn't rip me off my $18 again like he did last year after I attempted to post that same thread! And yet somehow every other thread on this site about 'bathroom' habits seems to stay up. What's up with this idiot? Get a fuckin' life, brah.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
