Take a leak like a gentleman without causing unwanted drama at the urinals. This is the urinal etiquette that you need to know

POSITIONING CONTROL
If you are the first to a row of urinals, choose the one furthest from the door. If you are in second go to the opposite end and so forth. Try and leave at least one urinal gap between users.

NO MUSICAL ACCOMPANIMENT
Includes, singing, humming or whistling.

NO SMALL TALK
A nod or a subtly ‘alright’ is acceptable. Chitchat however is deemed inappropriate

WATCH THE SPLASH ZONE
Be careful not to mess neighbours and yourself. Take it easy with the stream

NO OVER SHAKING
Just a small jiggle should do the job. It’s not a wrestling match.

OVERSTAYING YOUR WELCOME
It’s annoying to be waiting for a urinal to become free and some guy stands there zipping, belting, tucking, the whole spiel and not peeing. This is a waste of time and not proper manners to others. Step away from urinal before attempting the pack away and before you head out of the bathroom.

NO SPITTING
This is obvious.

DON’T GO HANDS FREE
So is this.

NO SNEAKING PEAKS
Don’t try stealing a glance at your neighbour’s goods just because of curiosity. It’s not cool.

If you suffer from stage fright the urinal is not for you and you better use a cubicle.

Don’t forget to wash your hands after you go. Cleanliness above all else.
