This week they got to our floor and taped up their little "Unisex Restroom" and "Under construction" signs while they tore out old tile and fixtures. Honestly, I don't understand this. As long as a public bathroom is reasonably clean, most people don't care about the tiles or paintings. This is a medical office building, not the Waldorf-Astoria. Besides, each one just has a toilet and a sink, and the door locks. They're freakin' identical.
Anyway. Cut to day 3 of our floor's construction project:
Guy walks in, stands at counter.
Mary: "Can I help you sir? Do you have an appointment?"
Guy: "What is wrong with you people?"
Mary: "Uh, is there a problem?"
Guy: "YES! I'm tired of people like you, trying to make me think men and women are the same!"
Mary: "What are you talking about? This is a doctor's office."
Guy: "Instead of having separate men's and women's restroom's, you liberal PC types are trying to cram unisex bathrooms down my throat. I'm sick of this trend."
Mary: "Okay, that's not even our bathroom out there. And the sign is just temporary, while they're remodeling them."
Guy: "Oh... "
Mary: "Do you have an appointment with Dr. Grumpy or Dr. Pissy?"
Guy: "No, I just need to use the bathroom."
