There's not even a gap at the top! A few years ago, a tall maintenance guy changed a light bulb next to the stall I was in. The memory of looking up and seeing someone looking back is seared into my memory.

And no gap at the bottom either! Now how will random children shove their heads underneath the door to stare up at my genitals? Think of the children!

I hope I'm not on some list now for searching for that. You're welcome.

"I need someone to help me wash my hands."

That's hilarious and cute. I would be mortified if that kid came into my stall like that though. I definitely would have been telling him to stop and stay out of the stall, that guy was surprisingly chill about that. He must have kids of his own or younger siblings or something.

I'd shoo him immediately. Guy with a kid people might think I'm some creep. I don't feel like getting sued or ruined

Yeah my first thought was "what would happen if the mom came in a sees her son in a locked stall with a stranger?"

He is filming though, so he can show he’s not creeping up on the child.

"I promise I'm not a weirdo, look I have video."

I admit it looks bad up until that point.

This is more of a problem in women’s restrooms I would imagine.

Happened to me one time in a men's room. Imagine my surprise to be sitting on the toilet in a men's room and then some little boy peeks under the partition and sees me on the pot. I think I was probably more traumatized over it than he was.

This just jogged my memory. I was standing at a toilet in a stall when a teenage/young twenties dude looked under the wall up at my face while my dick is in my hand pissing and he sees my face, ducks back really fast and says "Oh crap. Sorry man. I thought you were my friend. He has the same shoes." I laughed my ass off because he might have got piss splash on his head. But I thought to myself, "if he thought I was his friend why would he look under the wall anyways?!?"

Kid is probably not traumatized by it at all. Kids are super curious creatures, I have several small ones of my own. I started off trying to poop by myself because you know, that's how I was used to it. After a bunch of crying I just let the toddlers in so they'll stop. They'll walk around, ask you questions, climb all over you when you're in mid-process snipping that sausage, and they always want to see everything disappear down the toilet. You were definitely more traumatized than them.

Woman here, I've had little kids try to crawl through the gap and into my stall at least two or three times. One time I was already in a really bad mood and just pushed kiddo back out with my foot (like a slow-motion kick).

When I was in Seattle, somewhere in Pike Place, I was running around trying to find someplace to do my duty. I came across the only restroom I could find, a tiny facility with a couple urinals and 2-3 stalls. I walk up to the stalls and notice the top of the door is less than 6 feet off the ground. Any average height guy could walk by and see me squeezing one out.

I used it anyway because I was desperate but hot damn, who decided <6 feet was good enough for the top of the door?

Edit: It's drugs.

A lot of places, mostly restaurants here are modelling theirs like that, or renovating their existing washrooms. So much better. One more step I like to see is when you lock it, it says "Occupied". That way when you're in the stall people don't continuously yank on the door to see if it's vacant.

At a rest stop in southern Italy an old man got out of his car when he saw us heading into the bathrooms. When we got inside there was a hole in the wall that he was staring through and when we went outside to investigate he even had a stool there waiting for him.

104 points · 10 days ago

Felt awkward as hell cus he wouldn't stop talking then when he tried climbing under the stall just out of shock I booted him in the face. His mom who was waiting for him outside the mens room door was seriously pissed and embarrassed when I came out and mentioned to her what he did as I went past. A lil later she dragged him over to the table I was sitting at eating with my gf to apologize. I wouldn't be surprised if they still don't let him go into the bathroom on his own and this was 10 years ago.

She was middle aged and knew better.

FYI for you all: blow dry hand driers suck filthy dust, debris, and poo particles through their fan and blow them onto your freshly washed hands. They are not hygienic. Stick with the paper towels.

Lady mythbusters proved poop is everywhere, youre better off just not thinking about it. Like when my cats touch my face with their adorable paws, and then you realize those paws also went to the litter box.

This is the right idea. You want to cut down on waste? Just accept that bacteria is everywhere. Poop bacteria is on your toothbrush even if you keep it in the kitchen. This isn't literal shit and you haven't gotten ill from it before. Tainted lettuce is more likely to get you ill. The most disgusting thing about ladies restrooms is the period remains when people leave their tampons or pads in the wrong place or hover pissers that piss everywhere. Not hand dryers.

They have these in Japan! It's called an Otohime, it makes rushing water sounds to cover any noise. You can order one for your own bathroom for about 100 dollars.

They also have keitai otohime, which is a portable noisemaker that you take with you, in case the bathroom doesn't have one. Those are easy to get online, should be like 10-20 dollars.

These are fucking toilets thanks to the extra privacy, you wouldn't want to fuck in an American one.

But honestly the worst I've seen is Mexico, where the doors were only like a wild west saloon, 2ft off the floor, and only 5ft tall, so everyone can see over and under.

I was travelling by coach In Thailand and I had eaten something that didn't agree with me to the point where for the last 20 minutes I was in agony and thought I was about to shit myself on a packed bus.

We pulled over at a stop, I bolted for the bathroom and when I got in there it was a row of squat toilets, no walls or doors, just a row of toilets with 2 of them In use. I had no option, I dropped trow and cleansed my bowl of that evil like the power of Christ compelled it.

Cracks in doors don't bother me in bathrooms anymore.

This is such an intelligent business model for Texas. Why are people going to these establishments? to make a rest stop. Just make sure to maintain the most comfortable restrooms, and make the rest of it just good enough (quality) to purchase for the regular person. The rest practically makes itself. There’s so much commuting going on in Texas, that’s all you need for a customer base.

I work for a company that installs toilet partitions, among other things. The reason most restrooms use those partitions with the big gaps is because they are cheap. They make partitions just like the ones in the post available to any property owner that wants to spend the money, but no-one does. For reference, those stalls in the picture probably cost 4-5 times more than a set of cheap powdercoated steel partitions with the bad gaps. So this is less of an America thing and more of a cheap property owner thing.

Edit: People on the internet are really passionate about things they are completely ignorant of.

546 points · 11 days ago

See my problem with the whole cost problem could be solved with a cheap rubber strip and two screws

The do make little offset aluminum strips that can be bolted on to existing partitions to block those sightlines, but if the owners cared about that they would've gotten different partitions to begin with.

I mean... We are blaming the owners for being cheap but in my opinion I think it's the partition companies fault for charging so much more for doors with no gap when it could easily be solved pretty cheaply.

194 points · 11 days ago

The hard part is installation. The low quality allow an unskilled worker to slap it together in a hurry. Even if the gap is plugged with a liner it would take time to get it in place and would require a tighter min/max tolerance.

I can buy cheap office furniture with smaller gaps, how hard can this really be?

No, not really. Real buildings aren't properly square, so you can cheaply make sloppy, bolt-together partitions cheap, or you can do something fancier (in both original production and installation time). Precision costs more than slop.

You could probably make a door with a lip built into the steel frame pretty easily, just modify how the door itself is made slightly. Same process, same materials, and allowing for a 1-inch lip would allow for some pretty large deviations between buildings.

I have to admit that the gap once served me as an exit because I went in a stall to take a shit, only to realise after I finished that I couldn't unlock the door (I think it probably broke in when I locked it in first place) and that I was locked in the stall.

Knowing that there was nobody there and that nobody would come for the next hour, I had to crawl under the door, in the gap. It helped that I'm a very skinny guy, because there wasn't half an inch of gap between me on the ground and the door. Obviously, after that, my clothes were disgusting, but at least I was free.

I (US born and raised) traveled to Amsterdam and Stockholm a few years ago. Every bathroom had floor length doors and walls. It was magical. Most of them had disinfectant liquid so you could sanitize the seat (no seat covers), and many had their own sink and paper towels INSIDE the stall. Best. Vacation. Ever.

You have to visit Japan then! Their toilet seat is so advanced that they have heating and bidet. Some higher end ones even have different strength and temperature for the bidet.

As a Brit it never occurred to me that pee troughs would be weird. My school had them, pubs have them. They are all over the place. Just pee in the long metal trough and problem solved. Sometimes the trough is in the floor and you just go against the wall. You don't ask how much of the wet floor is water and how much is pee.

I don’t see an issue with them at all either. I’m american and I see zero difference between that and a urinal on the wall. No one’s checking out your junk... no one cares.

I used to love the big steel trough we had at dodger stadium. It was like a badge of honor when I was man enough to go piss in the trough (and by man enough, I mean tall enough to avoid being at eye level with a row of cocks).

They had them in Fenway Park when I was a kid, gone now.

At the Air Force Academy football stadium, you don't even get a trough. You basically just piss on the bathroom wall and it runs down to the nearest drain. Not joking at all. Its pure class.

I just got back from Ireland a few weeks ago. Aside from how amazing of a country it is, this was on top of my list of one of the many reasons I loved it. Especially because I got food poising while out in public and I was fucked UP. Nice to feel totally sealed in that stall.
