Little People Urinal

Who might be using this low-slung urinal in the Westin Arlington Gateway hotel?

Ballston midgets or dwarves, that’s my guess for this ankle splasher in the men’s bathroom.

That or men hung low. Either way, it makes me feel grand.

Remind me to frequent more places where I can tower over my fellow midget man.

    As the father of a 4 year old boy, I can’t tell you how vital it is to have short urinals readily availble.

    Nothing worse than trying to hold up a squirming kid who really needs to go.

    As a father of a three year-old, I can’t tell you how great these things are in “his” moment of need. There is nothing worse than holding up a kid with his pants around his ankles and trying to get him to relax enough to pee, plus the little guys is 40 pounds. Plus non-dads always give me a strange look at the urinary acrobatics I’m attempting when the restroom doesn’t have one of these shorties. I’m all for the old style urinals that go all the way to the floor.

    What I don’t understand with those things is why they don’t make them longer. Yes, I totally see the point of having them low, but they’re SO low that they’re useless to anyone of average height.
