    Etiquette

    Restroom at work has three urinals. The third one is a short one. If the first is occupied do you use the middle or the Shorty?

    Shorty. Without a doubt.

    Shorty. The awkwardness overrules the odds of a littler person needing the shorty in the 30 seconds it takes to take care of business.

    Use the middle one and make and keep eye contact with the gentleman at urinal the first, how dare he put you in such a position?

    Re: Etiquette

    Depends. Nice dividers or just 3 urinals on the wall? If just 3 urinals on the wall, I'd take the shorty. With divider, I'd take the middle and not engage in any conversation.

    If you have to poop, I'm pretty sure it's frowned upon to use any of them.

    I admittedly don't understand any of this, but what if Dude in urinal 1 gets done right as you walk in, you're already committed to #3, and someone else walks in? Do you worry that they're going to judge you for taking the urinal for little people?

    Maybe you should keep your eyes to yourself, pervo. No wonder people don't want to stand next to you.

    That's when you proclaim...Man, I love these low urinals! That water in the bottom is cold!

    I believe etiquette always says that conversation is not allowed until hands are being washed.

    What if it's a little person who walks in?

    Middle one. Turn slowly to the guy. Give him the wink and the gun and say "nice watch brah"

    Angie, you got to think outside the box here. For most you would think the lower one would be for short people but you never know when Ron Jeremy or his like may show up. I think most guys would rather him be there as opposed to standing two feet away using the taller versions.

    I'll be honest, I may not get the physics. I thought pointing down and working with gravity is a good thing here. If the urinal is too high, wouldn't it splash back at you?

    Again, I don't really know how this all works. My dad and brother used to describe the "trough" urinal that they had at Jack Trice once upon a time, and I assumed guys stood on both sides of it peeing in the middle, and that sounded like an AWFUL idea.
