Am at rugby wold cup final. Men must outnumber women 4:1. Why are we queuing and men sauntering in?!

cailindana Sat 31-Oct-15 18:04:02

Because women take longer to wee.

NoArmaniNoPunani Sat 31-Oct-15 18:06:05

Just use the men's

I suppose wopping out and peeing into a urinal, is much quicker.

bedraggledmumoftwo Sat 31-Oct-15 18:13:45

Well I will invest in a shepee next time but apparently security are cracking down on it anyway!

But seriously, given women's toilets always have ten times the queuing issues, why is this not built into building regs!?!

LunchpackOfNotreDame Sat 31-Oct-15 18:15:03

I unceremoniously use the men's loos, they don't seem to mind!

There's always huge queues for the ladies at Twickers.
I hope you aren't expecting sympathy? thlenvy

I'm more impressed op can get phone signal there! I never seem to be able to whenever I've gone (and I've sat in various parts of the stadium)

My (f) cousin is an architect. She says you can tell whether modern buildings had at least one woman on the senior team because they have more/larger female toilets. Not sure if I believe her or not but I do seem to find modern buildings have fewer queues for loos...

Last time I was at Twickenham I just used the men's.

Not at Twickers but yesterday I used public loos at a service station. It was busy but no queue. After I washed my hands I saw a large queue had formed where 3 women had waited at the door side by side iykwim and were not budging to let anyone out so they couldn't get in and the queue was building up behind them despite cubicles being empty. Think they thought if they moved they would lose their place in the queue... One woman trying to get out looked round and shouted "excuse me" and barged her way out so we all followed and magically the queue vanished. hmm

Some women take fucking ages to wee. What the hell are they doing in there? I'm in and out like a ninja.

Shutthatdoor Sat 31-Oct-15 18:44:32

There's always huge queues for the ladies at Twickers.

^ this. Always the case when we have been which is a fair amount

I agree with Oysterbabe. Some women seem to take absolutely ages. hmm

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sat 31-Oct-15 18:44:47

Agree oyster the time some women take is colossal. I have no idea what take sso long.,

hefzi Sat 31-Oct-15 18:49:12

I always use the men's if it's desperate, and feign confusion and mild indignation that they are all "in the ladies" if challenged...

It takes us longer to wee because there's more things to undo etc - but I very quick even so, so I don't even feel guilty because that's the kind of bad ass I am. Also, I suspect they think I am pregnant as I am so fat, and don't want to mess with the hormones :-D

BravingSpring Sat 31-Oct-15 18:58:12

I've no idea what women do in there, my mother takes twice as long as me, at least.

Mrsmorton Sat 31-Oct-15 19:00:11

According to the last thread on this, mners do the following in the loo:

Take Bag off
Take coat off
Arrange loo paper over seat
Rearrange loo paper
Wee
Wipe
Perform other wiping
Remove loo paper
Flush
Flush again
Put coat on
Put bag on
Use loo paper around lock on cubicle door
Leave

Fucking baffles me tbh, I just use the men's. Why would you do all that palaver in a public loo confused

bloodyteenagers Sat 31-Oct-15 19:10:24

Hold in peeing/farting until the hand drier is activated. Hold and repeat.
That's what takes females so long.
Blokes just stand there, fly down whip is out whizz. Pop it away and zip up.

Pedestriana Sat 31-Oct-15 19:16:03

I used the men's toilets yesterday when we were out. It was a single cubicle, same as the ladies, which had a queue of 5 outside it.

I didn't do it the MN way. I kept my coat on, hovered near the seat, wiped, flushed, washed hands and used my sleeve to open door. I was in and out in 3 minutes tops. There were still 4 ladies queueing when I left.

RufusTheReindeer Sat 31-Oct-15 19:17:30

I too am a ninja wee-er

I'm out before DH is out of the gents...i wonder what he is doing in there hmm

cardibach Sat 31-Oct-15 19:24:22

Pedestriana the hovering is why some MNers need to sort out the seat. Desist. Why cover handle with your sleeve? Aren't you intending to wash?

shinynewusername Sat 31-Oct-15 19:29:11

Another ninja wee-er here smile.

I once saw a nun using the Gents in Rome. I took that as a sign of divine approval.

Mrsmorton Sat 31-Oct-15 19:34:25

shiny that's good enough for me. I'm another ninja and just do. not. get. Why some women waste their lives in public toilets!!

bedraggledmumoftwo Sat 31-Oct-15 19:40:49

Did take a while to get a signal. Not necessarily as long as the loos though!

bedraggledmumoftwo Sat 31-Oct-15 19:41:57
