Dude, where should I pee ?



It never fails to amaze me when I use a public toilet and find guys who still do not know the proper urinal etiquette. This unspoken code of bathroom ethics has been passed from generation to generation, yet some men are still ignorant of it and break this code from time to time. But fret not, here at The L-oh-rama, I will teach you these etiquette for the sake of scruffy.


This may come as a surprise to some people, but which urinal a man chooses when he goes into a toilet makes a world difference. Let's imagine with me for a while, if in a toilet there is only a man using it in the stall A and there are 4 stalls. Then, came a man who directly proceed to do his business in stall B. Well, it's a well-known fact that using a urinal next to another man when you don't absolutely need to means you want to have "intimate relationship" with him. If this isn't your intention, sit tight and keep reading.


For example, if a toilet has 4 stalls and you're the only person inside the toilet, you must choose the stall furthest from the entrance, next to a wall if possible, let's called this stall A. The next man who comes in must then choose the next available stall, keeping one stall in separation, which would be stall C. If a third man comes into the toilet while the other two is still using it, he must wait until stall A or stall C is available, unless it's a dire emergency.

In a worst-case scenario, one which you are forced to use a urinal next to one that is already occupied, you should always choose stall D to minimize the number of consecutive wangs.

Although the four-stall configuration is the one you'll most likely to encounter, a more general approach is necessary when using toilets with different configurations. A more convenient way to sort out this problem is to use a simple formula derived from the following sequence:

stall position = n+(n-1)
= 2n-1

e.g, You're in a toilet in a stadium where there are 10 urinal stalls, there are already 4 people using the stalls according to the rules as stated earlier. Which stall should you use ?

s=10, n=5

stall position = 2n-1
= 2(5) - 1
= 9

Therefore, you should use the 9th stall. Simple maths.
