One thing that all people have in common is that sometimes we need to use the facilities. Often, nature calls when we are visiting a public space. With that in mind, some facilities managers have come up with very creative methods to indicate where to go and which door to choose.
Signage and graphic representation range from comical to obscure, with some presentations causing us to scratch our heads before making a decision. Let's take a look at some examples that have recently caught our attention.
This tangle of cables may look like something found in a junk drawer but represents more than just input and output. Can you figure out at which end you belong?
This one is coming right out of our high school science textbook. Xs and Ys are the letters used to describe chromosomes. XX is the symbol for females, and males are displayed as XY.
A garden nursery embraced nature to indicate which washroom their customers were to use. It would be nice if we could depend on real clouds to aim as well!
This one rather defies explanation. If you know, you know. It may simply be a case of fur versus feathers.
This display makes a good case for recycling. Don't be a heel; tap your way over to the restrooms and get there in nothing flat. As long as you don't have two left feet, you will surely figure this one out in a hurry!
Once you decide that you need to use the restroom, nothing will stand in your way. Almost everyone knows how these symbols feel and what is on their minds.
If you fell into a copy machine on the way to the restroom, this is how you'd look. Even if you clone yourself, you still have to decide which door to choose.
Ah, we can never see enough pictures of cats. Here, a simple bow or top hat indicates whether Tom or Kitty suit you best.
This one is both clever and cute. Even without words, these signs clearly point out the women's and men's doors. "Hair's" where you need to go!
