Sometimes, it’s better to be at work than at home. Prime example is this little incident that happened yesterday:

See, since this happened at work, it was amusing and a little thrilling; something fun to break up the week.

If this had happened at home, it would have been awful, devastating, and perhaps more tears would have been shed than water spilled.

Also, if that overflowed at home, it would mean that you have a urinal in your home.

I suppose that could mean that you're homeless and make your home in public spaces like the homeless dude who would take sponge baths in the restroom at B&N. If you have a urinal in an actual home that means that you love your husband even more than cjane loves hers. I didn’t know that was possible.

For those of you wondering how I have a picture of the mini-Niagara, know that this is the unisex bathroom that sits right next to my office. Why do I sit next to the bathroom? Well, I'm obviously an important and valued employee. Either that or it's a comment on my having had two children--and I resent that implication!

On the other hand, groovin in your underoos at work is usually discouraged.

We maintain that it's not a bad way to spend your lunch hour.

Max has the shirt that El-G is wearing. So funny to be saying that to you. Remember when we used to see each other in church and say, nice skirt? and realize that the other was wearing the same one?

But my shoes were always much more teacher-y and not nearly as swanky as yours, so you looked better.

By the way, remember that black and white plaid pleated banana number we both had? Mine is MIA. I have no idea where it is. I haven't seen it since we moved out east.

If you ever see my SIL in Utah wearing it in your ward rip it off of her wicked stepsister style and send it to me.

I knew I could count on you.

Ugh, a urinal fountain. I hope you didn't have to clean it up! Or due to your proximity to the bathroom you weren't blamed in a "whoever smellt it dealt it" sort of way.

I sit next to the bathroom and a drinking fountain that does not work. In a week and a half I'm moving to "the throne" one of two cubicles that sit above all the rest. Both of the thrones have been previously occupied by two guys who are leaving the company in the next week. Essentially my two of my right arms (yes, at work, I have more than one). August is going to be a tough month.

My neighbor has a urinal. He's quite proud of it. Our RS group took a tour of his home and it was his finest hour--being a bachelor of 50 and all.

If I could afford a urinal I would have one. There are four males in this house and sometimes I get tired of yelling at them to put the seat down.

You could have a urinal in your bathroom at home if you lived in a cool old abandoned school like these cool hippy artist types.

I'm afraid that if we had a urinal at home my daughter would be so excited to start potty training, but for all the (obvious) wrong reasons.

Cool fountain. That's almost as good as the day at work when someone clogged the toilet and it sent water rushing into the basement and into the next store. Did I mention I worked in a photo finishing store? Yeah...it ruined hundreds of dollars worth of photo paper. And I didn't have to clean it up--the guilty party, who was very guilty, did.

Anyway....

We love rockin' out in our undies at home. Getting dressed is so overrated.

You work at the Ally McBeal office?! I thought they were the only ones with the unisex bathroom.

I love my husband a lot but if we had a urinal in our home, I would never clean it.

BAhhaha! Talk about an exciting day at work!

Our urinal flooded a while back. We call it a toilet, though. And it was awful.

Your story is funnier.

Urinals are gross.

Is that supposed to be a new calming water feature? I am excited to see you in a couple of weeks!

Pure comedy!

more caffeine, please said...

Chad asked me what I want in our dream home. I said I want a urinal in our bathroom for him and one in our boys' bathroom. And I'm serious!

Justine said...

Compulsive Writer, do we have the same neighbor, or is it possible there is MORE THAN ONE person with a urinal in their house!?!

We were taken on a tour of this guy's urinal house, too. Maybe it's a pride thing. Urinal pride.

Or better yet, "I pee standing up" pride. I knew it was a misogynistic message somehow...

definitely better to be at work. it's sooooo nice to be able to walk away from plumbing problems, rather than having to wade through them (and then the financial murk) for months.

Groovin' in underoos = always good! El Guille is darling.
