New late night urinals are for very short people

By Barcham - 16 March 2013 63

urinals

Last night I went to investigate the new urinals that have been placed in Civic. Why? For you dear Rioters. I did it for you. As you can see from the above image they have placed them in quiet, private, out of the way areas. Areas such as one of the primary bus stops on Alinga St. Right next to a streetlamp. Because privacy.

Also you see they’ve placed rather large doors to increase the privacy available to the urine-ees.

Climbing into a urinal to examine the facilities I discovered three things.

1. The doors sit well below ‘business’ level, meaning they won’t actually provide privacy to anyone over 5 foot tall.
2. As soon as you step into a urinal you can expect a large group of people to approach you and ask what you are doing, and how you are finding it.
3. Despite points 1 and 2, people must still be using these toilets as they smelt horrible.

Is that really a little man symbol on the side indicating their purpose and intended gender of use?

You are Barcham up the wrong pee. (Sorry? Never.)

And do you always hold a You Are Here programme while not peeing?

That pales in comparison to the detailed warnings and diagrams that have appeared in some toilets at ANU.

I must question whether there is any significance to the fashion on display?

Question 1. I am not very tall.

Question 2. No, Hadley wasn’t there.

Question 3. I am a dapper man.

For security and to assist with aim for those who are inebriated. Same reason fully enclosed toilets are well lit.

Seriously who designed this abomination and more importantly who gave this the go-ahead and chose the location.Yet another piss poor effort.

I’d rather get a bit embarrassed than have some enterprising criminal arsehole catch me with my pants down in the dark, just sayin’.
