since about the age of 2 I've never used the bathroom and thought, "It be great if I could get some help with this."

good...always creeps me to see those farkers in there...and they generally look happy about being there.  WTF is up that?

/also don't like being shamed into feeling like I have to tip a buck to them just to take a piss.

I always thought it was a bit pretentious when an establishment would have a bathroom attendant.

Occasionally when I "go to the cluuuubb," there is a bathroom attendant, and my reaction is "Oh FFS!"  No, I am not tipping you because you handed me a paper towel from the towel dispenser 2' from my left.

There's nothing I do in the bathroom that I can't attend to myself.

I can reach the towels myself and there's no way in hell I'm taking candy or cologne from a stranger in a public toilet.

I used to work at this one club that had a tiny closet sized bathroom with an attendent in it. It was so odd. Always hated working the clubs with the attendents. I would usually just pee in the employee bathroom. Olny things that ever went on in there was sexy and drugs and painting latex on boobies.

In Chicago if you see a bar with a washroom attendant you know a lot of date rapes have started there.

Okay?  I guess that clears it up?

Rapeublicans want to see your penis.  They want to touch it.  Control it.  Abuse it like a rented mule.

This. Played the club scene in Chicago for years and never got comfortable with bathroom attendants. Creepy motherfarkers.

I've only seen this twice.  Once in Chicago and some place else.  It's creepy as hell and I think I can get that paper towel myself.  Ok, you can give me that paper towel. Still not paying you a damn thing.

Now I want to organize a Fark party at that one club in Chicago with the bathroom attendant.

i have never seen one. i guess i am a poor.

SNL, Harvey Keitel, Kevin Nealon, etc. etc.

I'm a shy pooper even though I know nobody can see me. If I knew there was someone always there... Watching. Listening. Cocking their head sideways like a dog when I let out what is the first of several beer and wings shiats that night. Shameful.

I can't deal with that kind of mind fark when I need to take a shiat. I say fire 'em all.

Can we at least leave the business tab as one place where people don't get all "MY TEAM! MY TEAM! OTHER TEAM SUCKS!" except about Apple?

[quote[In 2000 there were 19,880 of them, and 19,190 in 2012. That was during a period when overall U.S. employment rose 1.6 percent, which means the rising tide did not lift their boats.Obvious troll is obvious. Nice job reporting your political derp and not the news.

I've only seen it once. It confused the hell out of me, and since I wasn't sure what the proper protocol was (Or even what the hell was going on), so I ended up washing my hands.

Oh well. It was at a punk rock show anyways, so, it's not like I needed clean hands.
