Basic Plumbing

Female Coworker #1: Have you ever seen any of those new waterless urinals?

Joe: Uh, yeah, they have them in the UCEN.

Female Coworker #1: Are they gross? Don't they like, smell, or anything? How do they work?

Joe: They're not bad. The ones in HSSB are pretty gross just because they don't really clean the "bowl" as frequently, but the UCEN's are really well kept. They're kind of cool. You don't see anything -- there's kind of a disc contraption at the bottom I with some kind of scented or disinfectant oil stuff, and any liquid just falls underneath that so it doesn't smell or anything.

Female Coworker #2 (coming late to the conversation): Well, what if it's not a liquid?

Joe & Female Coworker #1: [seconds of silence]

Joe: What?!?!

Female Coworker #1: We're talking about a waterless urinal.

Female Coworker #2: Ohhhhhhhhh, I was just thinking "toilet."
