  • One great side affect of the current financial crisis: establishments are laying off those officiuos bathroom attendants. Now you can use the loo and without being guilted into leaving a tip for...nothing. Spend it on the new recession-priced drinks instead! [Eater]

Away with the bathroom attendants!

January 15, 2009 at 04:24AM | Unregistered CommenterYAY!!!

oh whatever.

i can assure you the busboys are going to be none too pleased to take over the new responsibility of cleaning the bathrooms (with absolutely no increase in salary).

the result? dirtier bathrooms. hooray.

and-- the reason establishments allow bathroom attendants to "badger" patrons for a "guilted tip" in the first place? THEY DON'T WANT TO PAY A SALARY FOR THE SERVICE.

"leaving a tip for...nothing"

oh really?

i'd like to see you go wipe up the toilet seat every time some uppity pig splashes urine (or worse) all over the fucking place.

it's A DOLLAR. and it's not even mandatory.

Have to disagree with you on this one. Bathrooms without attendants are usually nasty; I'm happy to pay a buck to keep it civilized.
