Pink and Blue

At our school, some parents have donated supplies to redo the elementary school bathrooms. Today we found out that the workmen have confused their instructions and put the pink tiles in the boys' bathroom and the blue ones in the girls' bathroom.

I thought that I had read somewhere that the whole pink/girl, blue/boy connection was recent, and I found this summary of some of the history of it. Clearly not everyone thinks it matters.

The woman who was in charge of the project is quite perturbed. But it's too late - the pink-tiled room already has a urinal. And that is definitely for little boys.
