The Urinal Challenge                Man vs. Woman  /  Back Home

Thanks to Keith L. for this one!

The Urinal Challenge!

Men should ace this test (or suffer the wrath of other men everywhere)... there is a code of the restroom that MUST be followed.

The following is the urinal configuration in a sample men's room. An X above the number will indicate "in use."

(Sample)

|   |   | x |   |   | x | indicates men are at stalls 3
| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | and 6.
-------------------------

You are to identify correctly, based on urinal etiquette, at which stall you are to correctly stand. Good luck!

Easy Section

Question 1

|   | x |   | x |   |   | (Stalls 2 and 4 occupied.)
| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |
-------------------------

Your choice: __

Answer: 6 - It's the ONLY one to go to and every guy instinctively knows this.

Question 2

| x |   |   |   |   |   | (1 occupied.)
| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |
-------------------------

Your choice: __

Answer: 6 - Stall 5 is acceptable, but you run a greater risk of being next to someone who arrives later.

Kind Of Tricky Section:

Question 3

|   |   |   |   |   |   | (empty)
| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |
-------------------------

Your choice: __

Answer: 1 or 6 - You are tacitly saying, "I don't want anyone next to me."

Question 4

|   | x |   | x |   | x | (2, 4 and 6 occupied)
| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |
-------------------------

Your choice: ___

Answer: 1 - You're stuck being next to at least ONE guy, so you minimize the impact and get a wall on your left. NEVER go between TWO guys if you can help it.

Subtle, Tricky, But Important To Know Section

Question 5

|   | x |   |   | x | x | (2, 5 and 6 occupied)
| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |
-------------------------

Your choice: __

Answer: 4 - Believe it or not, 1 and 3 "couples" you with the guy in stall 2. And we wouldn't want THAT now, would we? ;-D This differs from question 4 in such a subtle way that the nuances cannot be explained. Suffice to say, only we men would understand!

VERY Tricky Indeed Section

Question 6

| x | x |   |   | x | x | (1, 2, 5 and 6 occupied)
| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |
-------------------------

Your choice: ___

Answer: NONE! You go to the mirror and pretend to comb your hair or straighten a tie until the urinals "open up" a bit more. If you have to go REAL, REAL BAD...for god's sake, man! ...use a doored stall.

Who'd have thought SO much goes into a seemingly simple process?
