    DO NOT SCOLD ANYONE FOR ANYTHING... its a fun thread.
    I had a darkroom in a spare room in a Brooklyn apartment. Shared it the apartment with some other people. Used to take my ummm, dates, in there for privacy

    And when I processed film for a living in a lab, yes, I used to pee in the sink too. When you gotta go...you gotta go!

    Nice thing about printing in the bathroom is that you have a REAL toilet to use

    edit: the exhaust fan makes ventilation a breeze, too

    Only if you are smoking a seegar in there at the same time. Blow the door down!

    My dark room is a small bathroom and I was reluctant to mention anything about bodily functions, but I'm glad to note that I'm not the only person that is glad the darkroom and the bathroom go well together.

    I usually get scolded after a film process or darkroom session. Film clips forgotten on the shower rod, prints still soaking in the tub, safelight left hanging on the medicine cabinet.
    The worst was when the Mrs found with her bare feet, the top of the film cassette I could not find with my eyes.
    As for bad habits in the darkroom? I'll never tell...
    (don't want to get scolded even more)

    My "ventilation system" consists of opening the door in between prints every so often...

    I generally have a can of coke in the darkroom. Yes, I know it's a no-no! I keep it on the dry side away from the chems (and well away from expensive and electrical items!) and don't put my hands anywhere near the top. Not great but it's that or evaporate in the summer!
