Whose bright idea was this?

Tired of awkward drunken conversations across bathroom stalls?



This, ladies and gents, is the ladies bathroom at the Hole in the Wall pub in Austin.

I'm guessing they are equal opportunists. If guys feel comfortable peeing beside each other, why not gals?

Is it a coincedence that this is the same establishment where I got a $2 plate of fried pickles during happy hour?

Anyways, I promise a *real* and thoughtful post is coming soon. The transition back into day-to-day life is a little bumpier (too much interpersonal drama that people are trying to drag me into-bah!) and busier than expected. I almost wrote a post the other day about all that was pissing me off, but I decided that y'all deserve a good Texas picture post before I start ranting at you! Stay tuned...

Haha! My female friends tell me that these are becoming de riguer in nightclubs across Glasgow. So I guess that puts us right up there with Austin...

And as I was finishing the remnants of my scrumptious waffles laden with nice sweet syrup, I was faced with two toilet bowls which need cleaning!

:-p

That's disgusting, 'coz you chicks need to take off your pants and shit ... we make do by just 'whipping it out' ;-) LMAO!

Airam said...

Was there a lock on that door? Because you can bet that I ain't peeing next to someone ... if there was no lock I'd have taken a chair from the bar and stuck it under the door handle.

chris said...

Haha that's so awkward

cdp said...

Wow. I think that's all I've got today. Just wow.

brandy said...

I have only two words- not cool.

Never even heard such a thing about women's rooms, except that they aren't always nicer the men's rooms. You've brought proof to light of this phenonmenon that validates it. Good eye! Turn it black and white and make it a little fuzzy, and you could win an award for it--you never know!

I don't know if it's all that much better than the elongated "mantrough" common to hockey arena bathrooms, like my own beloved Joe Louis arena has.

Nothing like people encouraging pissing contests...
peace out

Eve said...

That reminds me of the love toilet, an snl skit from a few years ago. Hilarious: http://www.metacafe.com/watch/255383/the_love_toilet/


In China, a luxurious bathroom has walls in between trough users. *shivers*

iFreud said...

I love it! My girlfriends and I refer to conversation while one is on the loo as a "rap-shit".

Lord Chimmy said...

I'm so glad that I can piss standing up. Using one of these toilets would be an exercise in humiliation.

captain corky said...

I'm not a real big fan of going to the bathroom next to complete strangers, or people I know for that matter. But hey... that's just me. ;)

LMizzle said...

HAHAHAHHAHAHA!!!! Oh my God, this made my whole day.

You know, I've had dreams about bathrooms like this, but I never thought there would actually be a bathroom situation like that.

It's like, "hey, nice to see your labia! I am going pee too!"

Crushed by Ingsoc said...

A lot of clubs here are introducing the option in girl's toilets.

Men talk to eachother when pissing, it relieves the tension.

bigrig said...

I just thought it was always a cliche that you went to the restroom in pairs.
I guess I didn't realize the extent of it in some parts of the country.

captain corky said...

PS Thanks for the link Princess! I'm going to add you this morning.

Jocelyn said...

And you can share lipstick while y'all pee, too!

How did your tum feeling after a plate of fried pickles?

psychgrad said...

OMG - I am pretty sure I have dreamt of this bathroom. I always have dreams that I need to find a toilet and can only find an oddly public one that I refuse to go in.

Heart Of Darkness said...

Well, as us girls always go to the bathroom together, some smart dude (because this has 'dude' written all over it) came up with the idea of putting two thornes together with no walls in between... so we never have to stop our conversations... quite brilliant, actually! Just a little dirty, and uninviting... LOL

paramour said...

Good grief!

So now we get to see the people who squat over the toilet in order not to touch their buttocks to the cruddy seat, in turn, pissing all over the place? Or the lovely twats who need to take care of their monthly business?

I do believe that I would find another bathroom. :|

eric313 said...

Yes. Turn the photo to a b&w image, fuzz it up a bit and title it "heaven is a two-flusher"

or maybe not...

Dorky Dad said...

Next-door toilets? Man, those liberal Texans are crazy.

Not even most dudes would consider neighboring commodes. It's just not right.

Ultra Toast Mosha God said...

I would try to drop a bomb in one, then move over to the other, then back again until I was done.

That's equal opportunities

Okami said...

Aside from the image (and basic concept) being odd - did anyone else notice that this establishment couldn't even spring for two of the same model? Who puts two completely different bowls in the same facility?

Jeff said...

I think I'm going to have to copy that picture for future use (if you don't mind). I don't know for what but I'm sure at some point I can find a use for it!

Drama Div@ said...

to do your "business" openly.. no way... that's gross...
