No public washroom

Story of the day:

So yesterday night, I was coming home and had to go really bad. I get off the Skytrain at Broadway, and went to the A&W, knowing that they only allow customers to use the bathroom. With this in mind, I buy an apple pie (well, hot apple turnover, according to their menu). I'm told that it will take 5 minutes to prepare (what kind of fast food dessert snack takes 5 minutes???). Then I'm told that the washroom is out of order.

Great.

So I wait my 5 minutes (I paid $1.05 for that thing!) and give the pie to someone looking for money outside. Then I rush over to the McDonald's down the street (why does the red light have to come on just as I arrive at the crosswalk...) and buy an apple pie there. Then I ask to be buzzed into the bathroom. Just as I get to the bathroom, someone else enters it first! Argh! I wait for 10 minutes, and the guy doesn't come out?? Time flies when you gotta go, I didn't even notice how much time had passed. I could only think of how badly I needed to go.

Finally, I rush back to the counter, and the girl's all smiley, handing me my apple pie. No, no, I explain, I need to get into the handicap washroom, the guy still hasn't come out of the male one. I rush into the handicap washroom and experience relief.

Altogether, I had to hold for over half an hour. It was horrible.

  4. I can relate. Wait until I tell you of my torturous experiences while taking the 2 hour commute to Sammamish last year.
