i am baffled
May 5, 2010
Many winters ago, I was a student at the stone-coldest university in the nation. This university had an absolutely stellar campus newspaper. So stellar that I remember a particular firestorm topic that dominated the Letters to the Editor page for a solid week. The hot topic?
“Is it rude to read the newspaper in the very busy library restrooms between classes?” Cuz, you know, lots of people with lots of urgent needs and all that. Temperatures ran hot.
Anyway. I’m reminded by this only because I’ve discovered yet another restaurant that conveniently leaves not only a waiting/observation chair in the men’s restroom, but stacks said chair with reading material.
I mean, really? Is it because you can lock the door, so that’s where employees go for quiet time? Or do they really expect customers to take time before, during, or after their meal to go in there and hang out for a while?
I admit it–I am baffled.
