Being Told How to Pee
February 8, 2017
Now, don’t be surprised about this if it happens on a visit to a Slovak house. I’m not saying it happens often, but I’m saying I’ve heard enough people talk about it, so that I know it happens.
When a person pees standing up, there will inevitably be some ricocheting. Anyone who has peed standing up has probably noticed that this occurs.
In Slovakia, if you are a man visiting a Slovak home and find yourself needing to use the washroom, the homemaker may show you to the washroom and tell you to pee sitting down. You will either agree, since you are a guest, or you may possibly be the brash type and disagree with the request and ask your host why she would ask you to do that.
