If you look at the bottom of some HDB lifts you will see the patented Singapore Inc. Urine detector system - a series of little metal sensors inside a round insulator. If you pee to the side of them, no issue.
Had some practice, have you????? :mrgreen: :cool:

Oh, I generally don't use the lift, but the stairs for the exercise that I don't get enough of.
After you said “I generally don’t use the lift” the next words I expected “I use the bathroom”

:lol: :cool: 8-) :mrgreen:
Hahaha

I’ve seen those... space age stuff, like out of 1960’s Star Trek.

Just saying but if I'm not wrong, the bulk of the "urine" in a swimming pool is not actually urine but could possibly be perspiration. There's really not a whole lot of difference between them. Even if you do shower before getting in the pool, you'll still perspire and mark your territory in the pool.

Regardless of this - whatever the woman did is still boorish and selfish behavior. But unfortunately, there's not a whole lot that you can do.

To be clear, I don’t think she peed in the pool, nor did I suggest that. My issue was with her inconsiderate attitude and rudeness when she was confronted.

I hear you. Just yesterday I saw a woman washing the pants and bare butt of a little boy in the water feature. I'm not sure what they were washing but I think it could have been poop. 😰
