In the wake of The Great Shift, nothing was normal anymore. Even something as routine as going to the bathroom had to be rethought. The first time Brandon had to go after the Shift, he simply instinctively went into the men's room and pulled up to a urinal. Of course, there was nothing to grab when he reached his hand into his pants. But instead of just giving up and going to a stall, he attempted to angle himself in a way to make it work. He lifted his heel onto a neighboring urinal and tried to aim. It ended up as a complete mess, and the two men to either side of him were none to pleased with his attempt.
