Saturday night, I went to see X-men 3, before we went into the theater I went into the restroom and took a pee. Now, this was one of those new bathrooms that have sensors on everything. It will flush the toilet and wipe your ass for you (I made the second part up, but it will happen someday.).
I noticed the lights were dimmed to a warm brown that gave the restroom a strange vibe. (What were they going for here? A Romantic mood while taking a pee?) There was strange 80s music that was piped in from an unseen speaker. I guess they wanted you to feel at ease when you took a dump in a public bathroom. I certainly didn’t feel that way…er, I didn’t take a dump in there.
I went to the sinks, and they were sensor activated as well. I filled my hands up with the liquid soap and placed my hands under the sink.
Nothing happened. No water.
Now, I started getting pissed. (Uh, I just took a piss.) I thumped the little black sensor with my soapy hands and still nothing. Damn it…
I looked over and there was a cop washing his hands under the other sink with no problems. I got more pissed. Then, I removed my hands and the water came on and quickly shut off again and again.
Next to me, still washing his hands, the cop laughed. “It looks like you’re having a problem there.”
No sh*t, TJ Hooker, it is a true mystery why you haven’t become a detective yet. I nodded and then finally the water came on. In the end, I managed to wash my hands. Free at last…
Damn your new age restrooms
