When you go to a club, wedding or bar and there is a

bathroom attendant. .....I HATE that, especially for them!

Sorry to ANY of you here that may actually do this. But that has to be the most useless and degrading jobs I have ever seen.

Like I need a guy to give me a paper towel (when I can actually just grab one off the dispenser)??

AND I feel it is demeaning for the attendant as well! Having to sit there for 3-6 hours only to smell all sorts of scents that emanate. Urgh!

AM I the only one who winces at the thought? I despise places that put people to work like this.

I think it sucks to have to work as that but I also have had where I was in a bar and I had to POO and went in there and it was me and the bathroom attendent and no one else. I couldn't even pee. Plus I hate having to tip somebody in the damn bathroom for christ's sake!

Are you saying there was a male bathroom attendant in there with you??!!! I'm assuming it would have been a female... But, I just need clarification  Laugh out loud
I also dislike that practise. I (like others) find it demeaning. I know all sorts of people do all sorts of things for money, but urgh! WHY THIS?!! What I really don't understand is, how can these people deal with some of the washroom enviroments out there?! I've been to establishments where the bathroom was not even hospitable for the rats that probably inhabit the building... Much less for humans.

well if there's a market for it.....

Seriuosly though, there is a bathroom attendant at the club I go to, and the guy actually gets pretty good tips.

Besides simply handing you the towel, he also sells gum, cigarettes, condoms, plus he has hair spray, gel, little plastic combs, cologne, and hand lotion. Dignity issues aside, he actually does pretty good in there.

I detest this.
Not for the indignity of the attendant, that's his/her choice, but I can't stand having to feel pressure to tip someone every time I have to tap a kidney. That can be many times in one night for a wino like myself.

If I did happen to encounter a situation like Gretchen did above, I would have to ask them how big a tip it would take for them to start singing loudly. Or other "covering" noise.

But the "pissboy" is a concept I can do without.

I think its a nice touch, they keep it clean, and smell free for the most part. I don't mind...

I have never seen this in Canada, or in the US (The few times that I have been there).

In Poland, however, I never left a tip. I didn't even know you were suppose to. I countries like Poland, where the economy is very poor, this is a way to make money, so it is sort of good. The cost, was usually 1 zl.
