Have a laugh on me

We're not all in the same boat, some of us struggle to even get in the boat!

I’m glad I don’t have to wee in public like men


Why should men have to wee in public?

I know this is a weird subject but I heard a conversation on the radio today and it struck a cord with me.

The subject was urinals and the etiquette surrounding them, eg not looking at other men’s peckers, not getting too close, not making eye contact etc, and it dawned on me that I reckon I’d be pissed if I had to always pee in public.

I mean for efficiency reasons I can see the benefits of providing a wall to wee against, a quick shake and then being able to leave. (Because we all know that most men don’t wash their hands after weeing, but don’t even get me started on that).


And I suppose they could use the toilet with a door but I presume that’s really there for those in desperate need of going to dump city.

But what about those who don’t like getting their old fella out in public and weeing? What if my boys are like that?

I suppose I just think it’s a bit unfair for blokes who’d prefer to do their business in private, or maybe there’s not many that care about that?

In saying that I suppose I should praise the mighty urinal because it does free up the toilets with doors for me when I sneak into the blokes bogs at music festivals to save waiting in line for 30 minutes on the girl’s side.

I wonder if teenagers and young boys actually have to psych themselves up for getting out their willy to wee in public for the first time?

Maybe it’s a bit like going to a public toilet and trying REALLY hard not to make any noise while doing our business – silly but I reckon we’ve all done it.

I promise this will be the last of my toilet posts for awhile, I blame my kids for making me think more about the subject than I’d really like to.

I'm a mum to three, write from home and I rarely cook, craft or clean but admire those who do. I try to live by the mantra that there's no point in worrying about something that might not happen! Be warned this is not a fluffy, sweet mummy blog, rather a place where you can cringe, laugh and be shocked at my brutally honest take on my life.

  1. Just found your blog and checking it out – so forgive the comment on an old post.

    It’s not really an issue for us … we have been doing it all our lives and is simply a normal thing. No thought involved. 🙂

  2. Hi Mark, welcome! I suppose that’s right. I thought about it when my 3 year old wanted to stand and not sit, but I’m not keen yet, I already have enough mess to clean around here, and I’m sure his aim won’t be perfected at such a young age 🙂 Emily
