Bossy would like to introduce you to this bathroom.
It isn’t just any bathroom. This bathroom was designed with the sort of modern materials only available in mid-century airplanes. For instance, there’s the stainless steel toilet:
But that’s not what this post is about. This post is about this:
It’s a stainless steel sink. But that’s not what this paragraph is about.
You see, it’s not just any stainless steel sink. This stainless steel sink features a sloped stainless steel shelf:
And this stainless steel shelf is good for… is good for… is good for…
Why, lord, why?

Where is that nightmare of a bathroom? Are you in Europe?
Little Miss Sunshine State saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 10:56 am
You know that feeling of “if I could just throw up I would feel better”?
That bathroom would do it for me every time.
Suebob saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 10:56 am
Designer-y people are always in love with stainless. I just assume that they are not the same people who have to clean up fingerprints, toothpaste and water spots.
Kathy from NJ saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 11:03 am
I hope Miss Sunshine State doesn’t plan to vomit in that sink. Is there at least a flap in the back that opens to the real sink part? I wish Bossy would tell us the name of that hotel so that none of her readers (who like to brush their teeth) ever reserve there.
teri tighe saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 11:07 am
one word: UGLY!
Charlie saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 11:10 am
Sorry I missed that last part on account of the fact I poked my eye out on that horrific spike protruding from the spigot when I bent to brush my teeth. Guess I need a stainless steel eye patch now too. Thx Bossy.
Amanda saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 11:26 am
I’m still worrying about ass and thigh prints left on the can.
mitzie saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 11:44 am
Now if that shelf were corrugated, you would have a little washboard for scrubbing your undies.
amy saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 12:02 pm
I read the title of this post really fast and thought it was going to be about Lord of The Flies, and then looked through the pictures wondering where the fly infestation was.
As to the slanted sink and all that stainless steel, double ugh.
joeinvegas saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 12:05 pm
Yes, I wonder who has to clean all that, and take away the fingerprints and water spots. It is shiny though
Catherine McP saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 12:34 pm
I had something to say, but forgot due to my laughing at poor Charlies eye predicament.
CeeCee saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 12:34 pm
Is the stainless toilet seat, heated? I have no need to pay big bucks for a hotel room where I have to ‘hover’ above the seat, for fear of literally freezing my a$$ off.
PS…I think a man designed it. A man who has never cleaned a bathroom in his life.
Meg at the Members Lounge saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 12:47 pm
I too, thought “Lord of the Flies”. Come to think of it, it is an uncivilized bathroom that could easily inspire anarchy.
MidLifeMama saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 2:39 pm
There is a bar/restaurant in my town that covered the walls, floor and ceiling in the ladies room with that brushed steel stuff they make treads on trucks with. You might see it in a garage. It is a bit freaky, and not quite as shiny as your example, as it is brushed stainless steel, but still BRIGHT.
The Woman Formerly Known As Beautiful saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 2:40 pm
My eyes are confused by all the moving, shiny surfaces. Someone might accidentally crap in that sink.
WebSavvyMom saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 3:36 pm
–>I hope Bossy didn’t buy her own private jet with that bathroom because, Hello?
What if there’s turbulance and you fell over and hit your head on the shelf in the stainless steel sink?
Marta saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 4:23 pm
I am completely unsure why one would put a shelf in a sink. I can’t see how that would be a very good idea. I’m sure that sink cost a ridiculous amount of money too!
Gail K. saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 5:05 pm
Personally, I am trying to figure out why you need an 18 wheeler’s side view mirror in the bathroom. Anyone? Anyone?
p.j. saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 6:14 pm
I went cross-eyed trying to figure out what was going on with that sink. Please do explain what we need to do to avoid this mess, which made me dizzy with the first picture.
P.S. Here in st. louis we do have stainless steel toilets and sinks: in the County Justice Center a/k/a the Jail!
Olivia saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 6:49 pm
Clearly Olivia has had too much wine. She can’t make head or tail of this post and these pix just make her dizzy . . .
Ellen saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 8:29 pm
This is just insane.
Cupcake Murphy saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 10:20 pm
When I read this I thought of A Clockwork Orange and I an out of the house screaming. Thanks for nothing.
CS saysSeptember 9, 2011 at 11:07 pm
Loving the comments on this post! I spent my formative years watching my mom DRY the stainless sink. I feel a migraine coming on. . .
Cactus Petunia saysSeptember 10, 2011 at 2:36 am
Oh, good! They put the trash can next to the toilet. Uh, Bossy, exactly WHICH one is the toilet? Oh, and is that a chain-mail shower curtain?
Kim saysSeptember 10, 2011 at 9:23 am
The splashing water and the outlet to the left make me very nervous. Is that ok?
Jason saysSeptember 10, 2011 at 12:06 pm
It’s all so shiny! I can’t even really see any of it. Did your eyes hurt?
Amber Star saysSeptember 10, 2011 at 2:23 pm
I’d hate to be the person who had to go later in the flight. There would be a world of yuck showing in there. I noticed the placement of the trash can, too and who throws up in a sink. ugh
Birdbrain saysSeptember 10, 2011 at 4:26 pm
Obviously, this was NOT Italian design. No form, no function, really someone needs to license interior designers!
bossy's friend amy saysSeptember 11, 2011 at 5:38 pm
well clearly this sink was designed by a coke head – I mean look at all the shiny spots you could do a line – not that I know anything about that – but I’ve heard stories…
Aunt Snow (g) saysSeptember 11, 2011 at 7:25 pm
Can you imagine trying to keep the water spots off that?
Did the designer add the shelf for the purpose of having it reflect the faucet or something? WTF?

foolery saysSeptember 12, 2011 at 1:25 pm
All bathroom basins should have
1) faucets which extend far enough into the middle that your hands never need to touch the back of the sink
2) no pointy eye-poking risks (good call, Charlie)
3) as few reflective surfaces as possible
4) unslippery edges to to lean on because hypothetical BOSSY readers cannot extend both hands to the water at once or their hypothetical lower backs seize up
Who do I call to complain to?
BB saysSeptember 13, 2011 at 10:19 pm
How did Bossy transport herself into House Hunters International??????????
Jan saysSeptember 14, 2011 at 8:39 pm
HA! That is hilarious Bossy.
