Toilets

I know people who start new businesses that have bathrooms in them--you know, like restaurants, boutiques, etc. think it's really cute to put funny things on the doors. You've seen it. When you go to Mexican restaurants, for example. Instead of "Men" and "Women" they'll put "Caballeros" and "Mujeres." Now, lucky for me, I speak a little Spanish, so I can figure that one out.

But sometimes, I have no fucking idea what is on the door to the bathroom. And so, when I have to pee, and I'm in a hurry to get back to my hot plate of just served food, it really annoys the shit out of me to have to try to figure out which bathroom is for women and which one is for men. The worst is when people think it's cute to put those little symbols on the doors--you know, the one that differentiates men from women based on whether or not their is a plus sign underneath the circle? I sure as hell can never remember which one is which.

And just because I'm eating in a German, French, Italian restaurant, doesn't mean I know your fucking language. So, your cute shit on the doors? Yeah, it's not so cute. I don't like feeling like an idiot when I have to ask someone who works there which restroom I'm supposed to use.

One of these days someone is going to take a piss right in the hall way out of frustration. Call me stupid, I don't care. Going to the restroom should be simple. Stop with the cutesy pie shit. Please.

AHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAH omg this is too funny becuase I totally agree especially with the plus symbols! In fact I recently just went to a french pastry cafe and on the bathroom doors were pictures of chandeliers....well one was red and one was green, but the "womens" was replaced with a lovely scripted, hard to read Antoinette, and mens were Louis, maybe Im just stupid but I really had to go and I was getting frustrated seeing the "pretty" door signs! So I decided to pull the door on the Antionette one, it was locked, so I waited and out walked a man....LOL!!!!!!! I later got reassurance that I had picked the right room!
