It’s Okay To Pee In The Ocean

NEWTON, Mass. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Peeing in the pool is looked down upon, but peeing in the ocean is just fine.

  • 84 percent of travelers agree that people shouldn’t be allowed to save beachside or poolside chairs by leaving their stuff on them unattended for hours.

  • 82 percent believe smoking should be prohibited from the pool, and 62 percent want to see it banned on the beach.

  • 31 percent think it’s rude not to shower before entering the water.

  • 24 percent think it violates etiquette when women wear skimpy bikinis, while 35 percent feel that way about guys in Speedos.
