THE UNWRITTEN RULES OF THE MEN’S ROOM OR PROPER MEN’S AND WOMEN’S ROOM ETIQUETTE


Unless it is unavoidable (because there is no where else to go) or there is a divider in-between the urinals, men will not stand side-by-side at the urinals. If the urinals have no dividers, men will only use an open urinal that is not located next to one in use, and if the only open urinal is next to one in use, they will use an open stall. Even in cases where the urinals have dividers, men will still use an open urinal that is not next to one in use, and if the only open urinal is next to one in use, some men believe that in spite of the divider, an open stall should still be used. The debate between using the open stall versus the open-divided urinal next to one in use, is as old as the urinal itself, and may never be put to rest. It is sometimes called the debate of: To pee or not to pee in the open divided urinal or the stall. This is the question. And there are also some men as well as women (who obviously do not have to deal with urinals) who believe when using the stalls you should never use a stall next to one in use unless there is no other choice.
