When my wife was in Paris, every public washroom/restroom was a pay as you go washroom/restroom.

When I was in Egypt the restrooms were free, but you had to pay for toilet paper. I've never been to Paris, but I'm willing to bet that the restrooms in Egypt were not up to Parisian standards.

Re: Eff Starbucks


The interesting test to that new policy will be inclement or hot/cold weather...


Part of me thinks after the initial uproar there will just be stories at varied stores but not a huge difference...

It will start out with the homeless coming in to get out of the cold to the left wing public (starbucks clientele) demanding that SB provides free hot beverages to the homeless. How can they just let them sit there like animals while others are drinking their $6 lattes in front of them?

Yeah, they're already walking that back... notice one of the "clarified" guidelines of the policy...


Starbucks' new all-are-welcome policy: Now what?...
http://money.cnn.com/2018/05/21/news...icy/index.html

"If customers are disruptive, employees are advised to step in. And for Starbucks workers, enforcing those limits could be tricky.

The company offered specific guidelines in a document shared with employees. The list of inappropriate behaviors includes smoking, using drugs or alcohol, sleeping or improperly using the restroom. Starbucks added that customers who are unreasonably loud, watching something inappropriate on a personal device or whose personal hygiene disrupts others are not being considerate."
Yeah, key word... disruptive... wouldn't you like to be the employee to have THAT conversation...

That's a pretty cowardly policy...
