    Lately when I visit the restroom where I work (an office building), I have noticed that more and more guys are standing at a urinal and staring into their phone, presumably while they’re relieving themselves. Am I the only one that thinks this is strange, even disgusting behavior? I get that our phones are probably one of the dirtiest things we touch, but I go out of my way to avoid urine splashback hitting mine. What’s on that phone that can’t wait a minute or so?

    I put my phone in my mouth when I sit down to pee.

    Okay. When I saw the title, I thought the urinals were behaving badly!:eek:

    So apparently it's not just the pimple faced kids that can't get their faces out of their phones.:(

    I'm trying to figure out what's with the heavy breathing. This started like a year ago. Why, in every kind of place I go to, from high end hotels to family restaurants to scum bag bars, does everyone start breathing so damn loud / heavy at the urinal? It's bizarre.

    Believe me, I know. I notice on approach. You’re also supposed to be taking care of business and getting the heck out of there, but these guys seem lost in a trance when I walk in!

    First, the splashback from the urinal is likely cleaner than the phone was before they came in.

    That said it doesn't surprise me at all. People spend every possible second on their phones. Why that is the case is beyond me.

    And the same people won't wash their hands when they are done, but look in the mirror to make sure that their face is still pretty and just leave.

    Please don't get me started on the hygiene aspect.

    I'm almost ready to just forgo shaking hands entirely because I've seen /heard too many people leaving restrooms without washing. Even in restaurants.

    What, you mean you dont need both hands...?

    Except for situational awareness, I try not to notice much about guys at the urinals...

    Another beef is with a line out the door, guys in the stalls on phacephone playin'... restrooms should be sheeted in copper like a Faraday cage...

    Walmart restrooms are always an interesting experience.

    I find the people that have to pull down their pants below the knees while using the urinals particularly disturbing. But I'm sure there's worse.
