This time, management has gone too far.

December 10th, 2009 · 192 comments

Sure, we’ve seen notices like this one before…although they’re usually from parts of the world with much more questionable plumbing than you’d find (as Jason did) in Northern Virginia.

PER MANAGEMENT NO NUMBER 2 ONLY NUMBR 1 NO EXCEPTIONS

But this doozy, spotted by Dana at a local coffee shop in Canada, is a first.

All MALES using this toilet must sit. Standing is not an option.

    I guess they’re tired of cleaning up the sprinkle that naturally occurs when males tinkle.

      We could use some more info on who wrote the note.

      Was it the female housekeeper cleaning the bathroom or was it a employee making the mistake of not checking the public toilet seat for spattered piss before taking a number 2.

      I bet THX SANDRA wrote the first note. Some toilets just can’t handle “big jobs.”

      As for the second, they say nothing about women standing up. Power up the hovercraft, ladies, no sitting for you!

      I’m racking my brain trying to remember what movie this was in. Where some giant motherfucker is intimidating some little guy, and adds at the end of his tirade, “And don’t let me catch you standing up in there, from now on you sit down when you take a piss!” or something to that effect. I remember it was a hysterical scene, but I can’t for the life of me remember where it’s from. The perils of watching comedies while stoned I suppose. Does it ring a bell, anyone?

      PG,
      When you say *that gross* were you referring to the voyeurism or the ‘placement’ of an even-numbered substance into an odd-numbered porcelain receptacle? EMWTK (Enquiring Minds etc.)

      Mis dos pesos…the former is the sort of oddity that only came about after the routinization of agriculture (and big-city life, such as it was), while the latter is the kind of coal mine canary that warns that we may have been de-evolving more rapidly than we’d like to believe and are on target to revisit pre-agricultural culture sooner than we had hoped.

      In the meantime, here’s an apple and some (plain) sugar cubes. Dream.

      In my previous employ, our terminology did not include “making boomers”. Instead, we’d say “I’m going 3M”, or, if we could spare five syllables, we’d say, “I’m going to Make Marketing Managers!”.

      Of course, we were only joking! Most Marketing Managers are a credit to their profession; it’s only the 1 or 2% that are rowdy and disrespectful and don’t read PAN that give the others a bad name.

      Methinks my comment about Flaboy2425 going into poo-litics might have been a bit premature.

      At best (per “Eats, Shoots and Leaves”), his multitasking list is missing two or more commas. If only one comma, then he may require medical, if not surgical, intervention.

      People scoffed at Neil Sedaka’s “Comma, Comma, Doo Doobie Doo Down Down” (I Can’t Stay Mad at You) back in the day (well, my day), but commas can be a life and death thing.

      I don’t get links alla time from her, but tonight over her (Mrs. T’s) shoulder I watched 10-20 seconds of a 75 year old woman who apparently won some Latin American dancing championship (some sort of So You Think You Can Dance With the Stars thing here) and no bogus age stuff.

      Easy enough with the semi-colon, sure, but, how could you tell if a colon was/is inverted ?

      Putting myself in the D.F.Wallace character’s shoes (the character who reflected that mouth-kissing another person is, analyzed topologically, tantamount to licking one end of a straw whose other end is, well, less inviting to most of us than a straw is), I suppose I propose that everybody adopt the universal application of lipstick.

It’s amazing just how sad my grammar and spelling are when I am typing too quickly.

      Really, it was a pretty weak joke. Colonials such as me call quotation marks inverted commas, and as we were talking about a Wednesday when everything was wacky and reversed, and poo has to do with colons, I thought I would take a stab in the dark – you know colon/colon/semi colon, so forth. It wasn’t worth it.

      EG, (if informal is a problem, just mention it)

      rose ['r'=her choice] has explained the origin of inverted colons.
      My kicking the tin can down the street* consisted of a reference to a reflective thought of an actual character in an actual author’s short story.
      It was from memory, but from what you can see of the nature of the thought, it would be hard to go far wrong in recollecting it.
      The rest is just, um, cosmetic.

      I thought I came up with a pretty neat way of telling if a colon is inverted, but as you can see, rose disagrees.

      It was her phrase, so I’m not going to get into a con-traw^-versey about it.

      Hell, even if I convinced her that I’m right, well, she’s a grrl; I’m not; she could choose to wear the lipstick, and I’d be stuck playing the asshole.

      Is this any way to run a patriarchy?

    This is an increasingly common phenomenon in Germany. Men are asked to “sitzpinkel.”

      About 1.6 million toilets are already haunted by Spuk, or Spook, as the little device is called. Attached to the underside of the toilet seat, Spuk quietly endures sitting visitors. But anyone trying to lift the seat should be prepared for the ghost’s unrelenting wrath.

      “Excuse me, but there’s a penalty for peeing while standing in this house,” it warns culprits. “You’d better not risk any problems and sit down!”

      Other versions start roaring like a lion or try to persuade stubborn customers with the soothing voice of a female flight attendant.

      “We welcome you aboard Never Come Back Airlines,” the voice says. “We’d like to ask our male passengers in particular to sit down, buckle up and refrain from smoking.”

      After conquering the German market, Spuk has already taken over toilets in Scandinavia, the Netherlands and Canada.

      I hear as soon as some copyright issues can be ironed out, Mr. Putin has a company all set to provide a mandatory version for all toilets in Russia.

      Tentative product name: Spuk-nit.

      It will be an anti-patriotic crime not to have one making you do the right thing. If you’re not seated, a voice will admonish…”Stands. Treason!”
      (Sadly this will be in Russian, which makes it a lot less funny,)

      Units in governmental toilets will additionally be equipped with a variant of retinal ID software and a highly accurate short-range sprayer which will dose rebellious standers with a short blast of bowl-water approximately 2.1 cm below their retinas. Marketing posters and TV cartoons have already been approved for the “Spuk-nit’s Back with Another Sub-Orbital Shot” campaign.

      But I do wonder what was useful about including someone who is useless into a comment.
      Was there some point to it? If so, doesn’t that make CB useful in making the point, thereby invalidating the point itself?

      Hey, Beans…
      If you’ve been doing it wrong, then I must be doing it halfway to bass ackwards, or halfway to ass backwards, if there’s a difference.

      Hell, I think I’ve even jumped into threads that were originally addressed to other people and had only the most oblique relation to me.

      Oh well, we old fuddy-duddies will just have to sit by on the sidelines and watch the larval (or pupal, it’s hard to tell without the under-heel crunch as feedback) units show us How It’s Done.

      Wish I had a snappy comeback to someone who’s hip enough to watch DWTS and mention it in [sic] pubic.

      Wish I had the panache to drop little misspellings in to outwit the Touring Fuzz, too, but most of all I wish I had mad-cool running buddyz like YONZ! who can spike a set-up in less than 36 minutes. Luxury e+6 !

      Selah, as HST useta say. Maybe it’s all for the best…if s/he hadn’t discovered an outlet in PAN, things might devolve to the status quo ante, which I’m just guessing was an mid-adolescent Aspy self-medicating with DXM or a 12 year old cutter doing self-mutilating body sculpture with an X-Acto blade.

      OK, back to your cocoa and Lawrence Welk DVD’s, old timer…thanks for listening.
      ty

      P.S. I sure jope nobody this isn’t addressed to has a spaz attack and replies to it. Talking awkward…

      Thanks for reminding me to Google DWTS, ty! I knew that was probably something I should know, but as I don’t watch a whole lot of tv outside football, I had no idea what it was.

      I still have no idea who Aaron Carter is. Should I JFGI, or is it not worth knowing?

      JFG’ing won’t take long. If you need to know anything, it’s probably in the 1st two paragraphs of his Wiki. I know now, but I’m ready to forget, if that gives you a clue about the long-term value of the data.

      *written on the unused side of said toilet paper*

      and it’s Irony Gal’s paper, submitted by the present day analog of A.J. Weberman, who regularly dives in Alanis M.’s dumpster…

      The provenance of the paper is authenticated by a vidcam clip of the paper being ‘rescued’ from said dumpster. The paper itself had to travel via snail mail, and was protected from the elements, but not from prying eyes, or even incurious ones, which were able to inspect it at each P.O. along the route to Austin, because the sender had chosen a clear CD jewel case as the transport vehicle, needing only a stamp in the upper right hand corner to start the historically ironic odyssey.

      Owing to their ubiquitous use in the music biz, the provenance of the CD jewel case is inconclusive.

      The Santorini Chamber of Commerce has formally petitioned for return of the paper. They claim that the paper’s serration patterns (emblematic of the tines of a trident) are evidence that the paper came from their island. They hope to feature it in a display in their new museum called “περίφημη σκατά που βρέθηκαν στη Σαντορίνη “, which loosely translates to “Famous Shit Found on Santorini”.

    I wish I had taken a picture of it, but the motel in Sneedville TN (the ONLY motel in Sneedville TN!) has a sign in one room:
    “The toilet cannot handle toilet paper; put it in the trash can.”

    I’ve been told that this is not a temporary problem; it’s been like that for years.
