So is this when I mention I've shared a porti-potty with my wife, or do I save that for another thread?  Usually people don't pick up on it when we go in.  When we leave...the more drunker the crowd is, the more interesting the responses are. Fun-Fun.

The one restaurant that excels in every area but their bathrooms: Texas Roadhouse - at least in the mens room.  Large restaurant. Always crowded.  And one urinal.  There should always be 2, in case one is broken, or one is in use, which happens often because the restaurant is, again, always crowded.

The cleanest restrooms that no one takes advantage of:  Hotels.  Stop at the front door, which is almost always covered, walk in (they have no idea if you're a guest or not), find bathroom usually somewhere near the lobby, take care of business, then leave.

McDonald's usually has good bathrooms (relatively speaking). An exception is the one at Hyde Park Plaza in Cincinnati, where it's just a single seater. I tried using it a couple weeks ago when I went Roads Scholaring, but it was being monopolized.

I hate that McD's. Class warfare central. Both sides guilty.

Most McDonald's I've been in have only one toilet and two urinals.

Yeah I've stopped at a lot of McDs over the years to use the bathroom, and the vast majority have just one stall and either one or two urinals.

They also have those terrible old-school hand dryers. When I'm president my first order of business will be demanding xlerator hand dryers in every public restroom.

If you've ever worked in a loud enough environment to require hearing protection, Xlerator hand dryers should bring you right back.  In restrooms with the right acoustics, they're actually harmfully loud.  Their decibel rating, as far as I can tell, is based on the thing running on its own in a sound-dead room, minus hands.

I know, it's brief, but it seems a little dumb to me that slightly faster hand drying needs to be this loud.  World makes a very effective modern fast dryer that is far quieter.

I like the Dyson AirBlade, but I know it's expensive.

It's quite easy to hear the Xlerator through a closed heavyweight door and walls. Not viable for quiet workplaces, IMO.

The Airblade is a little awkward.  I feel like I'm playing Operation when I use it.

It is, slightly, but I still like it better than the Xlerator. For one thing, I can see the skin on the backs of my hands moving when I use the Xlerator.

Pizza Hut and Kentucky Fried Chicken usually do not have very good bathrooms.

But I love that effect! :) The loudness is a bit much, though. However, it can mask the sounds of other folks' bodily functions while in the restroom.

I gotta say the best restrooms I've been in are in In-n-Out, but I have accidentally entered the women's restroom accidentally several times.

Pizza Hut and Kentucky Fried Chicken usually do not have very good bathrooms.

OK, so this is a bit off topic, but this statement brought back an enjoyable memory about bathrooms...

On our first cruise, there was a dating game-type show where 3 couples were on stage - a newlywed couple, a couple married 10 years, and a 25 year anniversary couple.

I still remember this one question, and the newlywed's answers.

"Where was the oddest place you made whoopie?".

The guys were on stage.  The women were off in a private room.

The newlywed guy proudly said "The Taco-Bell Bathroom!!"  We, the audience, laugh hysterically. 

After the other two men gave more sane answers, the women come back on stage.  The host asks the newlywed chick: "So, where's the oddest place you made whoopee?"

Her face turned so beet red, the room glowed.  She told the host "Oh my goodness - I can't answer that - my parents and my family are here!"

The host turns to the newlywed, puts her hand on her shoulder, and says "That's ok.  THEY ALREADY KNOW".

She very sheepishly says "The Taco-Bell Bathroom".

It was great.  Even better, thru the CCTV system they had on the ship, they played the show over, and over and over again.  Loved it!

I prefer paper towels to electric air-blown hand dryers.

If it isn't the Xcelerator or Dyson ones, then I prefer paper towels. The bacon blow dryers just don't cut it.

Lately I've been pooing each evening at the end of 'CHiPs', because of all the roads in that show. (Thinking of roads induces pooing.)

Good advise.  I will be using it in the future.

As long as it's during the day. Hotel's often have sliding doors that lock after midnight and you need a room key to open it. At the Marriott where I work, if you can't provide the front desk with information as to the room you are staying in, the hotel security escorts you from the premises. There is no security between 7 am and 5 pm, so during those hours, the lobby pisser is fair game.

Hold it?  Why?  Mike Watt made an instructional video 20 years ago, complete with disposal procedure.
