One for the gents, this.
It's reaching the latter part of the evening, you're fast approaching that state of drunkeness where standing up is getting to be a bit of a bind, the old bladder needs emptying so off you head to the gents.
That quite, peaceful moment of relief is a time of rest..... of quiet
As you start to take stock of the evening's progress and enjoy the slow release of pressure from down below, you allow your head to rest against the wall.
The cold, hard, dirty wall.
It's clear to see.....
What every pub / bar needs is a headrest above each urinal.
You return to your friends feeling relieved and rested.
||Isn't "Gents' Urinal" redundant?
||For Peter: How interestingly descriptive. How glad I am to be male.
||Ah come on. Urinals are dirty smelly holes at the best of
times. A nice soft rest for your head on someone's puke,
piss (if they can that high) snot wiping and various other
private bathroom emollients men practice. I don't think
so. Why not my earlier idea of a table toilet where you
don't even have to get up off the bar stool and men and
women can piss together, and not lose track of the final
destination, around the same region.
||See Clark Hall Pub, Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Engineering pub and in the male washroom - one stall, two urinals. Headrests for everyone. What a relief after much imbibing to lean forward and meet cushiony softness. Even in the stall, though the headrests there are located beside the toilet rather than in front or behind. A noble idea that should spread far and wide.
