You Should've Gone Before We Left the House!

Hopefully none of you need to use the facilities, as now I'll be charging a $5 cover. I figure that if local bars can do it, why can't I? I am a little curious how they'd ring it up, maybe as an "Inconvenience Charge"? Or maybe they'd come up with a vaguely alcoholic shooter name-any suggestions?

Today, look carefully, you might catch a glimpse of your favorite Richmond blogger (or can I be a blogette?) Posted by Picasa

    You'll have to explain this one Mea! Is it a place you own or are you kidding? What's the deal?

    This is posted on the front door of a bar downtown! Although it'd be interesting to post a sign like this on my door at home...or better yet on my classroom door at school. I'd make a fortune off of my students!

    i see you, i see you, i see you....what's my prize?

    Dean-It's a prize you want, eh? Well, I'll let you use the facilities for the low, low price of $2.50! That's a 50% savings!

    If you posted this sign in your classroom, you'd have to make it say, "No, I am not shitting you!" instead!
    Also, you'd have to bring a safe for all the money you'd collect!

    Hi Mea, I saw you but don't you know you can also see me in the Fengshui Fish photo??

    So, do you think they charge by the "type" of toileting you do? In Paris you can find some places that still charge a different price for the urinal OR the stall. Yes, yes, yes, it's discriminatory I know!

    Wohow! While here in the Philippines public toiletries charge Php5.00 or around $.10!

    it's a little funny to me that the entry on potties received the most feedback!

    I guess it's true that we never outgrow bathroom humor!

    Eric, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think I remember seeing port-a-potties on the street in Paris that you charged to get in?

    Lisi, Found you!

    Yes mea, quite sophisticated as well. I don't remember how much they are, but they close and clean themselves after you are finished.

    Yes PLUIM, I thought the same thing. We're all a bunch of kids proud of our number 1's and 2's.

    $5?!!!! What, are they crazy? Well, at that price I expect the toilet automatically cleans your butt when you're done ... or something!\?!! Geez, $5!

    Epluim: ROFL!!

    If you're not a customer, then perhaps this is a legitimate fee. Public facilities in Paris do charge, but they also have an attendant and, basically, that's all the service they offer--the service as a restroom. (The art-nouveau toilets near La Madeleine used to offer shoeshines, maybe still do.) But, here in Virginia, you can't open a bar or restaurant or serve food without having restrooms available for the clientele. It's the law. So, if you're eating at this place, or drinking at it, you most likely have the absolute right to use the toilet.
