notice posted outside the bathrooms

To the male tenants of this house who are under 6'2":

Could you aim just a little bit better? I understand that even the male tenant who is over 6'2" from time to time has difficulty getting every last droplet into the bowl. But really, you are taking things too far. There shouldn't be a puddle of pee behind the lid, or a spray of pee on the inside of the lid, or a rivulet of pee running down the wall behind the toilet, or a desiccated patch of pee in that cozy little nook at the base of the toilet that I must have missed the last time.

Is this some sort of game? Do you pretend you are hosing down the front porch on a dusty summer day? Do you pretend you are firemen dousing some raging flames? Do you compete to see who can keep the most pee out of the bowl? Do you pee with your eyes closed? Are you even facing the toilet?

I truly am curious to know how it happens. But mostly, I just wish it would stop.

Sincerely,
The Management

It's a universal problem. I have to clean the ENTIRE toilet every other day or so. yuck.

I hung a roll of paper towels in the bathroom, and asked them to please wipe the seat and floor after they go. I've given up on aiming.

Oh. My. Gawd. I know.

I clean the bathroom and 3 days later there is this strange smell and I realize it is from a little dried up puddle on the side of the toilet. I never had a brother - I never knew about these things.

Although, now that I think about it I think since mine has turned 6 things have improved....

*sigh* With 3 "creatures who pee standing up" in my house,
I actually threatened to buy a sheet of that paper you put in the bottom of dog cages all around the toilet!!!
My sister-in-law (with 5 males in the house) designated one bathroom "mens'" and told them "This is your toilet...your pee...you clean it." After a while they began to smell what she has been smelling and when they couldn't use "her" toilet, they figured out how to use the cleaning supplies!!!
She has her own toilet upstairs....Oh, my kingdom for a second bathroom!!!
