I Hate These Kinds of Problems

Slate's Dear Prudence column features a particularly disturbing scenario this week.

There is one person, whom I will call Pierre (for one who pees through the air), who stands an uncomfortable (for the rest of us) distance from the urinal. I estimate that he's about 20 to 24 inches away from the porcelain when he goes. Since there are two urinals, if one of us is second into the bathroom we can go to one of the stalls to do our business. But there are times when a person can be trapped at the first urinal, as Pierre mans up to the second one, which makes it more uncomfortable trying to slide between him and the wall to get out.

I shudder just imagining what the floor of this bathroom must look like. Comfortable restrooms outside the home are the Holy Grail of the largely unimportant but necessary portion of our lives. If you have one convenient to you, remember that you are among the fortunate.
