    Probably another case of me being an over analyzer:

    Here I am at a friends home (and he is a good friend) and I go to use his bathroom. Let me say this friend is meticulous about his home, very blunt and always open in his views. I use his bathroom and notice yellow stains in his sink. When I finish I'm kind of stuck and I ask him, "What do you do, pee in your sink"??

    He matter of factly says, "Oh yeah I do, I keep my bathroom cleaner that way, just use the other sink there". I was kind of grossed out at first and he can read me pretty well. I finally asked him if he "pees in other sinks" and his response was, "yeah I do if I go to a public bathroom, I can lock the door and its dirty, I won't go near the toilet, I just use the sink".icon_mad.gif

    Should I see the friend any differently? Is this another example of "mindset"? We are taught we pee in a certain place and he chooses a different approach. I was in HIS house afterall. Then I thought about making a comment about my sink being "off limits", then thought better of that......
    And more than that am I overanalyzing? Your views?

    Overanalyzing? That's gross. People brush there teeth and drink from a sink. But maybe he drinks from the toilet? And if you can identify yellow stains in the sink he's not that "meticulous" about cleaning up his house. I think peeing in the shower while the water is running is more common but the ideal place to urinate and deficate is the toilet. I think I learned that when I was three!? And as for peeing in public sinks, the ones some of us to use to wash our hands in? Come on....

    Because of my damn Prince Albert, peeing is a lot less hassle if I sit. But, if I'm in a real hurry to get out the door and don't want to untuck my shirt and all that, I'll pee in one of the sinks. I always run plenty of water afterwards, and the gleaming white porcelain has no stains, yellow or otherwise.

    In the case of your friend, I find it odd that a meticulous man would think having a filthy, pee-stained sink constitutes keeping his bathroom cleaner.

    While I have to say that I find the idea kind of repulsive, I have read that some Eskimo tribes wash their dishes in urine.

    A listing of various uses of urine, including body wash, dish washing, shampoo, etc. can be found by Googling on [ urine wash ]. An example of a such a list is at:

    I would say to him. "While you are at my house I would appreciate it I you would not use my sink as TOILET"!

    Nothing else needs to be said, whatever he does at his house is kind of his business. But if the bathroom was clean? How is that you noticed that the sink was stained with "URINE"?

    I recollect that the poet W H Auden used to do this. 'nuff said.

    Well everyone has something weird about them.

    I'd say it was just one of thsoe things, not really a deal breaker as far as friendship goes (unlike being stingy or a serial killer, which are in my opinion).

    I think it was kinda funny, not Ha Ha funny, just odd funny in a way. I used to pee in locker room sinks in the hockey rink all the time when I was younger, but then again I also ran the hot water for a few seconds afterwards. And other guys peed in the sink too, and the toilet and the urinals for that matter. So it wasn't much of a big deal at all whatsoever to do that then. But when I was at home, I always used the toilet or the shower when I used it. I think your friend just needs to be a little more careful about not leaving those drops of pee in his sink, is all.

    A man peeing in his own sink wouldn't bother me as much as the lack of hygiene that allowed me to recognize that he did it...

    It's weird, but not a friendship breaker.

    I always allow my friends one "Oh my god, what were you fucking thinking about" flaw.

    Keep more friends that way.

    Seriously - people think I am weird because when I had the Lake House built I insisted on the contractor putting in urinals in a couple of the bathrooms.

    Some guys think its very cool. A couple of women think its gross. The contractor said it was the first one he had ever put into a private house: but found out that it was actually fairly popular in some areas.

    Why not suggest to your friend that he install a urinal?

    More I think about it, less weird i find it...if thats all you use the sink for, then isn't it just an oddly shaped urinal?
    Habits make people do weird things...I dunno.
    I'd never do it,but then again i grew up peeing in socially appropriate places...
    Its a good thing.
    Even put it on my resume! ;-)

    The next time he's at your home, serve him a drink, but first bring him to your bathroom, pour the drink into your toilet and give him a straw.

    A bit weird...yeah. But like someone above said...kind of funny weird.
    IMO definitely not a frienship breaker or even a relationship breaker...but squarly falls in the "different" category....hehehe

    Next time he's at your house I'd just jokingly mention...hey bro, my sinks don't take piss as well as yours do allright!! Hopefully he gets the underlying message to limit his habits to his own pad.

    OMG.....

    Actually I think I don't need to say anything, the look I gave him as he was explaining himself was probably enough.

    I should probably also mention that he told me he can't stand dirty toilets... when he was in college he used to have to clean the toilets in his dorm.. and he is a fanatic anyhow. I've never seen his bathroom anything but spotless, um, until I discovered his "sink use".....icon_mad.gif
