Hold Your Water

Headline: Plumbers stall waterless urinals in Philadelphia
The union opposes the urinals because they do not have water lines and would therefore require less labor than the traditional kind, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. It said Mayor John Street and other local politicians were trying to mediate the dispute.
A pissing contest, eh? What a pointless endeavor - it will only go 'round and 'round. How wasteful is that?

When you're trying to climb the corporate bladder and streamline ideas, it's nearly impossible to stop the process once it's begun. Fighting about it will only drain the city's resources which could be put to better use.

I realize the Union is a hard one to go up against, however, if the private developer's aim is to make the world a better place, then I don't see how this idea will get the royal flush.

There was an attempt to reach Local 690 but they didn't return phone calls regarding this matter - my guess is they were in the bathroom at the time. With any luck this feud will fall between the cracks and be forgotten about faster than a Russian race horse.

The way I figure it, if you have a lot of pissed-off Plumbers (Red) and a building that is environmentally friendly (Green) - all you'll end up with is a whole lot of Yellow.

John is right, by speaking out against the union, you have no idea how much trouble urine.

btw: by the color of your font, I'd say there's a B12 deficiency.

hehe - isn't it ironic how the unions keep blocking everything that reduces work. I mean - its not like its going nullify the average plumber. Innovations developed, but don't move my cheese.

John and ITJ: yes and if they go to trial they'll have to be judged by a jury of their pee-ers.

fatty: I know this sounds cheesy - but you can't stop progress. :)
