Going out to eat at great restaurants can be fun, but I hate the challenge of the bathrooms. No, not using them – finding out which one to go into.
I’m in a great Sushi joint in New York and after a few beers, nature suddenly calls.
I walk into the bathroom area where there are 2 different doors. Given the recently popular unisex bathrooms, I think this might be the case here. However there are 2 different symbols on the doors so I know one has to be the “Mens” and one the “Womans”
But which one is which?
One door has a symbol that looks like a woodchuck fucking a vacuum and the other one looks like a cross between a hummingbird and a spider. What the fuck?
I wait to see if anyone comes out. No luck. Then I hang around to see if anyone else can figure this shit out. No luck. Now I really have to go after downing 3 beers.
I slowly open one door to check if there are urinals. Nope.
I check the other one, and…. success! All this trauma to take a simple pee break.
So an open Memo to all restaurant owners:
Put a simple fucking “M” or “W” on the door, or give us the clever play on words if you have an ethnic or themed joint (you know, “Lads/Lasses”, “Kings/Queens”, etc.) so we can quickly go in and get our business done.
Don’t make us sit there wetting our pants while we try to figure out your shitty artwork/symbolism on the bathroom door.
