Fancy wedding reception bathroom is fancy!
I should note that the place where the reception was held had placed a little historical “note” on each table.
Well, the top 1/3rd was historical.
The bottom 2/3rds were all “Dos and Don’ts” (mostly Don’ts) about where we were and were not allowed to go in the facility, and instructions about the bathrooms.
The women were directed to either of two bathrooms (like the one shown above).
The men were — and I am not making this up — directed to two “new and clean” portapotties.
Seriously? •Seriously?* “Here’s a bathroom bigger that a NYC apartment for the women, and there’s another one too, but you men can go outside and use the portapotties that have been sitting in 100º heat all week.”
Soooooo racist. Sexist. Whatever.
If there had been — through some design flaw or plumbing mishap — only one working bathroom indoors, I would have been fine designating it for women only. Call it chivalry, call it whatever.
But two indoor restrooms should mean one for each gender. If the one for your gender is in use, you either wait your turn, or use one of the portapotties outside.
Yeah, I get it, Fancy Reception Place… you expected that if you let the menfolk use one of the indoor restrooms then you probably would have needed to spend more time cleaning it at the end of the night than you would the women’s restroom. So sorry for you. If you have 230+ guests coming and know that roughly 1/2 of them are going to be men, then that’s just part of the equation that you make before you set the rental price.
“Fortunately” it was 100ºF and I was sweating so much that I couldn’t have produced urine if my life depended on it, but still. It’s the principle of the thing.
