    A Vancouver restaurant has come up with an interesting solution to the men-can’t-aim problem: Ban men from peeing standing up.

    In Edible Canada’s case, where men and women have to share toilets, I can see why they’d be interested in reducing behaviours that might make things messy.

    But, still, isn’t banning stand-up peeing a little extreme? Not to mention, as far as I can tell, completely unenforceable?

    Men and women share public restrooms in Canada? Here is the US that is against the law I believe.

    I don't see how that's going to help matters. I see piss on the seats all the time in women's restrooms. :waitasec:

    “PeeGate” – How a Little Bathroom Sign Created a Giant Flush of Attention

    Edible Canada president Eric Pateman came across the stickers months ago when planning the shared, co-ed washroom space. While picking up signage from Puddifoot Restaurant Suppliers he came across the no-peeing-standing stickers, got a laugh out of them and picked a few up for the stalls. “We figured it would be something fun and different,” he said. “A conversation piece...

    The stickers have been so popular with our customers that we’ve had to replace them five times in the last three months. “Customers keep taking them. Some people have even taken off the plaster to remove them and take them home” according to Pateman.

    I knew of one independant sales woman who used to come in and straddle the seat because she didn't want to sit on a public toilet, never cleaned up the mess, and the other women in the office complained to the point where our manager forbid her entrance into the building.

    It would stop that problem of men forgetting to put the seat down too!

    I like the seat down sooooo much, that every man I've ever lived with just ends up sitting to pee... :D

    Seriously, I'm not that bad, but it's true. I think the male sit is more common than readily acknowledged. Also, it's a good exercise to have them clean the bathroom on a regular basis-- eh, just 'cause.

    Where did it start that it was ok for men to stand up and pee anyways? Just because they can is not a good excuse! lol

    Well let me tell you, my boss, who is a real man's man, you know he's an avid hunter and our office was decked out with wild boar skins and pictures of lots of dead animals and such, HOWEVER, on the this issue, he told me that at their house the men sit down. In fact he cured his teenage son from standing by telling him that he needed to lie down with his head near the bowl, and then his Dad would, um. "go" and if nothing splashed on his face then he could stand up to pee! I laughed hysterically. He told his son that when he was at the ballpark and the public restrooms he could do as he pleased but NEVER AT HOME.

    Me? I am a bit more crass. I just threaten to "tee tee" on the floor and let them walk through it. same thing as them splashing urine all over. Works for me.

    That's right...Crack the whip and wail like a banshee!!!!!!!

    I don't know about against the law. We only have one bathroom at our business and we've never been told we have to add another (no room for one so that would be a problem!)
