You know what’s really annoying? When you’re peeing at a urinal and the pee splashes back, leaving an embarrassing mark of recent relief all over your pants. But one man recently faced a fate much worse than just some moisture on his trousers.

While at Handmade Burger Company in Aberdeen, Scotland, Gordie Wallace went to use the restroom. Due to the poorly designed layout of the bathroom, the hand dryer went off mid-whiz, spraying his stream all over his pants and soaking his left shoe. He left a photo and a comment regarding the incident on the burger chain’s Facebook page. 

Gross, right? But Handmade Burger Company wasn’t going to let this man walk away dissatisfied. So they offered him new sneakers and a yearlong supply of socks, along with this humorous comment.

Ace response from an ace food joint.
