Taking some "me time" on the toilet should be a peaceful experience, and usually, it is, in the comfort of your own home, but what happens when you have to use a public restroom? Even the most bathroom shy of people has been caught in that terrifying moment of panic where you have to frantically search for a restroom and pray that you don't find anything too horrific inside.
The following is a list compiled by GIGGAG of the most extreme bathroom design fails that made at least one person if not everyone's' bathroom experience odd, uncomfortable, terrifying and possibly hilarious. From toilettes with no stall to inconveniently placed soap dispensers you won't believe these crappy designs. And remember don't forget to upvote your favs!
Need to pooooooooop....
If you have ever been to a public restroom you will notice that the line for the women's bathroom tends to be longer than the men's. Well researchers have found that men actually spend more time on the toilet than women do - seven hours a year in fact. According to the poll men reported they used their bathroom time to hide from a nagging partner, avoid kids, spend time on their phone or just for some 'me time.'
Look what you can't do.
Factoring both men and women, the average person spends at least 92 days in the toilet over the course of their lifetime. We use the toilet around 5 to 7 times a day which adds up to 2500 times a year. If you factor in the minutes spent each time, it could be possible you are spending more than three months or three years of your life in the bathroom!
The most difficult episode of tTe Apprentice...
Lavish but where's the tissue??
There is nothing particularly entertaining about going to the bathroom, but that didn't stop South Korea from opening the first (and only) 'Restroom Cultural Park.' This odd toilet themed park opened in 2012 and includes a toiled shaped museum, toilet sculptures and toilet-related artwork.
This is why you should always pud the lid down. And of course also because when you flush, fecal matter flies around. You would not want that.
I mean, on the Sims, we can just fix the problem easily by rotating them again. But this?
If you have ever wondered why someone is taking extra long in the toilet it may not be for the reason that you think. Surveys that 75% of people use their cellphones whilst on the toilet, whether it's texting, emailing or even taking phone calls. With this much cell-related bathroom activity it's no wonder that 7 million phones end up in the toilet each year.
Yaay, I pooped!
Going to the bathroom takes up a significant amount of our lives, but using a proper toilet is something many of us take for granted. In 2001, November 19th was named as "U.N World Toilet Day" by the World Toilet Organization, "a global non-profit committed to improving toilet and sanitation conditions worldwide." The aim of this day is "breaking the silence on the sanitation crisis."
I think this one takes the title of the most judgmental bathroom
oh lordy ahahaha! this one really got me!
For a largely sedentary activity, using the toilet comes with lots of risks. A reportedly 85% of bathroom-related injures occur from someone falling into the toilet after the seat has been left up. Leaving the seat up was listed as one of the top bathroom annoyance for women - hmm looks like there is a correlation there.
When you are entertaining guests at your house you may not focus too much on how presentable your bathroom is or what's in there but maybe you should. It has been recorded that 70% of house guests snoop through other people's bathroom cabinets and drawers.
Well, I am a disabled, elderly pregnant child and I do not see what is wrong with this. Please excuse me, I need the bathroom and you are standing in the doorway.
I am not a dude, but if I was... your damn straight I would wait to go pee in that urinal. Also, nice touch with the stage lights.
American Joseph Gayetty invented toilet paper in 1857 and boy is the world thankful. Americans use 433 million miles of toilet paper in a year, which is enough to stretch to the sun and all the way back.
one goes, the other waits and then goes after the first one is done. the cycle
I wouldn't want that pattern anywhere
We have all found some unsavory things in public restrooms, but regardless of how many people use these toilets there are actually no more bacteria in public toilet than in a home bathroom. The air in public restrooms is normally cool, dry, and filled with oxygen which is not ideal for supporting fecal matter bacteria. Our of the other germs found in these public bathrooms 68% of them we come into contract with just by being outside.
Why ???? Sorry, this is not going to happen.
More like a bathtub for ants.
University of Arizona microbiology professor Charles P. Gerba found that soap in public toilets can actually make you dirtier. There’s “so much fecal matter that you’re almost better off washing your hands in the toilet after you flush it,” said Gerba. Airborne bacteria finds its way into open dispensers and the over-dilution of soap mixtures make it less resistant to the germs living there - gross.
This can't possibly even be legal.
Aww... it's actually cute!
Looks like 2 Girls brand of ice cream.
OMG, I know where this is!!!! It is at McMenamins Olympic Club, in Centralia, WA. Great restaurant & movie theater, very bohemian with eclectic art by local artists.
