  • Taking recycling to a whole new level!

    Not long ago we took our daughter out to dinner to a nice mountain restaurant. I went into the mens toilet and there were three urinals on the wall. Above them was a nice cheerful sign that said we believe in saving our planet. We recycle everything we can. Above the first urinal was a sign that read "Beer" with an arrow pointing down. Next was "wine" and on the third one was Cola, Fanta, Water.

        I remember a graffito scrawled on the wall of the toilet stall when I was in high school:

        Flush twice. It is a long way to the kitchen.

            I am not sure what that saying means John. Does it mean you don't believe me? If not I will call them tomorrow and have them send me a picture. I maybe didn't remember the wording exactly on the big sign but the signs are there.

              Some yrs ago, while visiting a facility in anther country, I had occasion to visit the men's room, In this case the Loo. Ther was a sign posted on the mirrors over the sinks that said"please do not wash penis in sink". I thought, what a strange place. Then I noticed someone had carefully hand lettered the letter I into the word "pens". Bob.

                A sign above the urinal at "The Catalyst", a Santa Cruz hippie coffee shop from the 60s.

                "Please do not throw cigarette butts in the urinals. It makes them soggy and hard to light. Sincerely, the night clean up crew"
                At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and extra parts.

                  There is a small bar/cafe on the road to Reno but still in California that I stopped at once to get lunch. In the mens room there the sign said something like, Remember, the same hands that fish the cigarette butts out of the urinals are the same hands that make your lunch. At the same place it said, You men with short horns stand closer to the urinal.

                      Back in the recession of 80-82 a place i worked at , someone had placed a note over the toilet paper holder. It said:

                      "Due to shortage of paper because of the recession, you are asked to please use both sides and edges when wiping".

                        I've seen this one a few times over the years - "We aim to keep this place clean...Your aim will help."

                            At quitting time all urinals would be in service.. Those using the stool were greeted with the sign:

                            Be like Dad
                            Not like Sis
                            lift the seat

                              I think things like this are usually done to distract the user. Have a blank wall above a urinal, and it will have graffiti on it, no matter how nice the place.
