Man Beaten for Breach of Urinal Etiquette

47-year-old Edward Trevor Aldridge pled guilty to assault charges in Christchurch, New Zealand after an altercation in a mens restroom.

Defence counsel Liz Bulger told the court: "This incident arose from a breach of what I understand to be urinal etiquette."

The judge sentenced Aldridge to 300 hours incarceration and 50 hours of community service. Link -via Arbroath

@Kerozene: If there's a toilet then he should go there.

Else he should go wash his hands first and wait.

Of course if it's super urgent he can go but must keep his eyes straight ahead.

So... what do you guys do if theres two men evenly spaced apart in a bathroom, and a third guy comes in?
Does he have to wait till one of the first two are finished, or does he just... wedge in the middle?

Thank goodness I'm a chick and don't have to worry about that stuff. For myself, I avoid public restrooms alltogether when I can. And never use one for more than pee'ing. Thats just gross when you go into a bathroom and someone is doing "serious business". Eww.

Punching the guy was out of line, whether he was looking or not. The puncher could use anger-management. As for the other guy, perhaps this movie would help put things in perspective:
