Dutch official: Save H20, pee in shower
upi.com ^ | Jan. 9, 2013 | AA EN HUNZE

Posted on 01/09/2013 11:27:10 AM PST by Berlin_Freeper

A local government official in the Netherlands is recommending people save money and resources by peeing in the shower.

Bert Wassink, a council member in the Drenthe municipality of Aa en Hunze, said residents can reduce water consumption by combining shower time with toilet time, DutchNews.nl reported Wednesday.

Wassink made his comments as part of the council's 2013 sustainability initiative, which has saving water as one of its focal points.

The official said peeing in the shower "saves lots of clean water and is good for the environment."

"If you combine showers and peeing, you save a lot of water and money, so why not?" asked Wassink, who said he makes the practice a daily habit.

I guess it’s okay for me to come over to his house and pee in the shower when I have to, huh?

Why do we have to save water? Are we shipping it off planet? Did the hydrologic cycle suddenly end? All the water God gave us is still right here on the planet.

I guess if you have to pee, you could at least be a gentleman and close the curtain, ya’ know.

And maybe use only one sheet of poopy paper for each movement . . . who was that genius-ette rock-bozo who suggested we do that? Whatzerface?

Hard core water conservationists take the dirty dishes and the dogs into the shower with them.

[and the laundry, if there’s room]

During my entire stay at college I washed all my clothes as I used them by rinsing them out in the shower with soap and water. I then wrang them out and hung them to dry in my room. Strnge how I had so much more spare time back then without all the conveniences expensive appliances have broght me.

If you don’t have a kidney or bladder infection, urine is pretty much sterile when it comes out, no big deal.

This is just a trick, to get europeans into the shower more than once a month.

Guy runs out - HEY! No peeing in the pool.

First guy says - Yea but not off the diving board.

How about we just come over and pinch a loaf on your desk. That would save water too.

I guess Bert Wassink doesn't know men like to pee off their back porch. Maybe he also doesn't know men like to write words in the dirt as they pee. Men have some capabilities women don't have.

Many years ago I had no washer/drier and every Wednesday, I filled up the huge claw foot bathtub and did our laundry.

One fill for washing, one fill for rinsing and then everything was hand-wrung and hung to dry outside.

Being more of an outdoorsy type than house-wifey, I was embarrassed by how wildly *happy* I was when we finally got a washer and drier.

I was horrified that I’d become “domesticated”.

;D

Back when I had a pool I hung a sign that stated;

"We don't swim in your toilet.
Please don't pee in our pool."

There are some things for which men simply don’t need instruction or direction. Unless they like the sound of “Eeeyeww!!” they just can’t ever let the wife or girlfriend know.
