What's Wrong With This Picture?

I'll tell you what's wrong - the urinals are too close together. This is the setup in the washroom in our building. If you come into the washroom and find one guy standing there, you pretty much have to lock arms with him in order to do what you gotta do. I usually wait politely or use one of the toilet cubicles.

Our office building is really nice and I have very few other concerns, but this one is a pet peeve (phobia? neurosis?) of mine. Our office is located on the same floor (and thus, use the same washrooms) as the building management company. Is it any wonder that the design flaw has gone unnoticed? Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that all the staff at the building management office (including the manager) are women. The maintenance and security guys must be too meek to mention it.

Has anyone else run into personal space issues in a public washroom or is it just me?
