    I almost always always use the stall. Not a fan of standing with my back to everyone with my...well, you know.

    That's why I don't wash my hands after peeing in the stall

    Hum... awareness is always wise, driving a car, etc., even using a urinal. The idea that one can always anticipate every possible problem is simply wishful thinking. As to drawing a weapon in the midst of using a toilet... perhaps one could practice such a tactical situation at a private range... maybe.

    One of my flight chiefs in Taiwan was stabbed in the back at a urinal in a downtown bar. Couple of po'd Taiwanese army troops came back after a GI that had been hitting on one of their girl friends. Too bad they came back hours later when the guy was gone. The knife had been ground out of a file and not tempered so it broke the tip off in his shoulder blade or the next few stabs would have killed him. I only use urinals at work, not in public places.

    On a related note: We are finishing the basement and putting in a bathroom. I wanted to get a urinal put in but the wife put the kibosh on that idea real quick.

    I always feel vulnerable when peeing at a public urinal. Your forehead is only a few inches from a concrete wall. All it takes is someone to come up behind you and slam your head into it.

    I was once at a "welcome center" when a guy got mugged/ or an attempted robbery.

    It was really weird, we were there just killing some time before having to be somewhere, and weren't in a big hurry. So we were just hanging out in the lobby.

    All of a sudden, there was this huge commotion, a guy was yelling stuff like "GET OF ME!, YOU ARE A PERVERT" and a lot of obscenities. The guy left the building and all eyes were on the door to see who came out. This old guy came staggering out of the bathroom with his hand on his back, all shocked looking and not even able to speak. He was finally able to get some words out. He said "He tried to take my wallet, he tried to rob me".

    Come to find out what happened, the old guy was at the urinal doing his business and the perp came up behind him with a stun-gun and hit him in the back and tried to grab his wallet.

    I was like an eye witness to the guy coming out of the bathroom yelling about someday trying to molest him in the bathroom but for the life of me, I could not remember what he even looked like because like everybody else, all eyes were on the door to see who the alleged "pervert" was coming out of the bathroom. The perp created a big diversion away from himself and was long gone before anybody found out what was really going on.

    Take a seat facing the door.
    If I'm standing at a urinal, I already have a weapon in my hand. :)
