When someone is using the big water fountain, why do people avoid using the smaller water fountain right next to the big water fountain? It doesn't make sense to me. It's all the same water. I can't figure out a theory on why people ignore it. It reminds me of people not using an open urinal because someone is using the next to it.
Because kids use the little water fountain, which means you WILL catch some sort of disease from it. They lick it and slobber on it, and snot all over it. Much safer to just drink from the adult fountain.
For the same reason that people don't use the lower urinal. Because kids piss in it.
Interesting analogy. Definitely the first time I've seen someone compare themselves to a urinal or drinking fountain
I knew this girl that was short and made it a point to use the big one just to show that she could
I often wonder this myself, especially when I'm taking like 45 seconds to fill my water bottle at the gym and someone is standing over my shoulder waiting and refusing to use the other fountain and I'm pretending I don't see them which is patently ridiculous while my inner monologue is screaming "THERE'S ANOTHER FUCKING FOUNTAIN RIGHT NEXT TO ME THAT WORKS PERFECTLY FINE WHY DON'T YOU USE THAT INSTEAD OF JUST STANDING THERE AND PROBABLY THINKING I'M AN ASSHOLE."
The are usually uncomfortably close to each other, that you basically have to push up against the other persons shoulder in order to use it.
I almost started a similar thread about the urinal. My office bathroom has a 2 urinal setup, one high one low. I get so pissed when I walk in and 5'7 dbag is using the bigboy urinal. Know your place.
you could be courteous and use the small one if you are going to take 45 seconds to fill your water bottle. the reason the small one sucks is you have to bend over so far to get your mouth to that level. but that's not an issue with filling the bottle. you're just being an asshole who want to see others strain to use the more inconvenient water fountain.
I actually do use the smaller one a fair amount, when I take the time to think about the choice. People seem more willing to use the bigger one when the smaller one is occupied than the reverse, but there are still a significant number of holdouts.
drinking from the little fountain is like doing a kegstand. It's fun when you're 20, but stupid when you're a grown ass man.
This is why I started the thread. I hate people staring at me in the gym when I fill the water bottle. I don't know if they are intimidated since I'm a tall black guy, but people never use the small water fountain when I fill up my bottle. It would save them a lot of valuable time if they simply checked their egos and used the small water fountain.
It is probably be because you are so aesthetic.
so much lol
People in Oregon are scared to piss at a urinal next to another person. They also brush their teeth in public bathrooms. Every single one of them.
reality show idea: drop coltsfan into a portland mall. Would it be the trisomy 13 grin that kept them away from the neighboring fountain? The darkness? The exudation of idiocy? Perhaps the inability to navigate parallel and perpendicular streets? Mayhap the smell? Let's do this. Let's get him out of his regretful parents' basement and make some money. BEWARE FAT HIPPY CHICKS, HIS VIRGINITY COULD BE THINE
Maybe we could get the BBC to broadcast the show, I seem to remember colts is a fan.
Not only do I have a dilapidated garage for him to live in, I break down a lot of fish so he'd have a steady stream of heads tossed under the door. I also work right by lloyd center mall so we could commute together.
Everyone knows not to drink from the small fountain because that is where people like allenbaba wash their shirt-tails after pissing on them.
I always use the short ones :/
I feel like most of the time the shorter fountain has better/higher stream. Although I am surprised goterpss hasn't dropped by to laugh at us common folk drinking from a water fountain
lol since he can't reach the adult fountain that would be hilarious
This thread needs more love
