(We have plumbers working on the building, and they have to turn off the water. I put an “out of order” sign on the restroom and went about my day until they finish. A while later a lady comes in.)
Lady: “I’m going to use the restroom. Where is it?”
Me: “I’m so sorry but the water is turned off so the restroom is out of order.
(She stares at me blankly and repeats her request to use the restroom.)
Me: “I’m sorry; the restroom is out of order. There is no water to the building right now while they fix a leak.”
Lady: *still looks confused* “But we just drove for two hours!”
Me: “I’m sorry, but it doesn’t matter where you drove from or how long it took. There is NO WATER in the building and NO RESTROOM! You have to go somewhere else!”
(She finally got the idea and left. Did she drive for two hours just to use our toilet? It’s not that special, I assure you.)
