This is a mop sink

(picture of mop sink) This picture is from a restaurant in Santa Barbara. There is no urinal in the men's restroom. The fixture in the corner affords a certain activity. To try to discourage this activity someone taped a small sign to the wall above the fixture. The sign says "This is a mop sink." (picture of sign)

Design suggestion

The mop sink looks enough like a urinal to use it as one. When simple things have signs, especially homemade signs, it is usually a signal that they aren't well-designed.
