Do you obey the "MAN" rule or do you not give a darn? Perhaps you don't know what the "MAN" rule is, but everyone should. Please take note if you're unaware of the "MAN" rule.

The "MAN" rule has to do with public restrooms where there is more than one urinal.
Example: You enter into a public restroom and notice there are multiple urinals (more than 2) and none of them are occupied. (by urinals, I mean the stand up ones. Not the toilet). You go to the first urinal to do your business. While standing there, staring off into space, someone enters the restroom and walks up to the urinal next to you and begins his business. IMO, that person has just violated the "MAN" rule because he didn't seperate himself from you by skipping a urinal. To make matters worse, he tries to strike up a conversation, such as "hello" or "how ya doin." IMO, not only has he violated the "MAN" rule by not skipping a urinal, but has now put himself at risk of being beaten by trying to engage me in conversation.

Now, sometimes you can't have an empty urinal between you and the other guy, like during the 7 inning stretch or half time, and that's okay.
I'm strictly talking about when the other person has another urinal available to him but chooses to occupy the one right next to you.

Heck, I'll use the toilet if I walk into a restroom and there are only two urinals and one is occupied.

So, what prompted this topic? Let's just say it was a very uncomfortable moment that prompted me to cut my business short and exit the restroom at mach 10. I gave the guy the benefit of the doubt and just assumed he might not be of this planet and is unaware of the "MAN" rule.

Perhaps I'm being a bit over ___phobic but I think the "MAN" rule is something ALL MEN should adhere to at all times. And hopefully this post will prevent some poor, sheltered, innocent soul from being pumbled to death by unknowingly violating the "MAN" rule.

Have a nice day.

There's just something wrong with that. Can't put my finger on it, and trust me I wouldn't, but it sure sounds like that would hurt!

Man rule? Almost as silly as the thread about how to ice your soda.

But, I'll play. How do you line up at a trough? Does the man rule also cover that? What about the urinals that have privacy dividers between them? Is it OK to use an adjacent basin then, or does the leave a gap rule still apply?

When a bunch of guys relieve themselves on the side of an interstate, what's the man rule's spacing rule?

Depends on where I'm at, and the mood I'm in. I've been known to go to the first urinal in the line and just drop my pants and drawers around my ankles and do my business like that. I've also been known to stand back from the urinal and do my business in it from a distance. I know I make a lot of people uncomfortable with my antics.

Now if I'm not feeling like making an arse out of myself and am actually doing my business in the publicly correct fashion. I could careless where you choose to pee, be it 9 urinals down or right next to me. However if you opt to post up next to me and I catch you looking or peeking. I guarantee you your shoes are gonna be wet.

Did he try shaking your hand when he was done shaking his...?
Does the man rule apply when the only available urinal at a distance is the kidde urinal that's a foot of the floor? How about the trough at the ballpark? Could always use trash cans and sinks.
Is "basstiality" the same as sleeping with the fishes?

Just refrain from bringing up someone's reply on this thread and all should be well. I'm still laughing about that comment.

You guys got me cracking up.
Yes, Rhino, you should skip a urinal even if there are dividers.
I've never seen this "trough" thing you speak of.

Raider- If I walked in the restroom and saw you standing there with your pants around your ankles I'd more than likely pee in my britches from LMAO.

Maybe the "MAN" rule is just a S.Florida thing :Idontknow:

No...The Man Rule is universal. The guys that have posted are just having fun...EVERY hetero knows The Man Rule.

Troughs, bushes and "out back" are an entirely different story.

The real MAN rule is "Pee where you want" you don't need a urinal to even be put in that sort of trap in the first place.

Bassn Blvd, you are not alone. I do just as you do, and despite the protestations from some of the above members, I think most guys who aren't light in their loafers do the same. Sure, there are circumstances when you can't avoid standing elbow to elbow with the next man, but these are rare.

The fundamental principle here is I do not want to see your junk, and I do not want you looking at mine. While there may be circumstances where this can't be avoided, as a matter of general practice the Rule is sound in my opinion. And no, it has nothing to do with embarrassment or envy :naughty: , just proper manly behavior.
