    Thumbs up Wow... cool compliment.

    I bought a vintage (I think) straw hat a couple months ago from the bay. I loved it from the fist time I put it on my head, and now it goes virtually everywhere with me.

    I was just in the bathroom at work and a guy asked: 'aren't you the one with that short brimmed straw hat?' I said yes, and he said he had one like it 30yrs ago and he thought it was cool then, and he thinks it's cool now. He said he has a couple Panamas now.

    I just thought it was cool to receive the compliment from a stranger when I wasn't even wearing it! A lot of people comment on it when I wear it, but with all the 'nice hat' comments, I can never really be sure if they're being sincere. (Don't really care either )... I still love it!

    Just thought I'd share.

    Very nice comment, indeed.
    I don't trust it, he broke the man code. He talked in the bathroom.

    The code applies only when standing at a urinal or when in a stall. Other sections of the restroom are key areas for male discussion of attire and tactics.

    If you need some input I'll be standing by the sink.

    Yeah. Talking to a fellow man while taking a whizz seems very awkward, to say the least.

    It's nice that you get such good compliments. I only get weird stares.

    And you're not supposed to stare down when at the urinal. Be a real man! Don't look at "yourself"!

    Smile Three cheers for equal time!!

    ...the ladies have their chats about girdles and corsets and bras (oh, my!); we have our discussions about proper bathroom etiquette. I wonder how many of our fairer members will peek in here to read this one!!
