Which way...?

The hunk and I went grocery shopping this morning. As happens quite often the older I get, the time came when I needed to dash off to the ladies room. Naturally, I headed toward the back of the store in search of the restrooms.

Naturally, they weren't located back there in this particular store. No...in this store they were in the front!

Here's my question: Why isn't there a standard location for restrooms in stores? Why??? And why aren't there BIG signs with the directions?

Consider the most likely people to patronize the public restroom...parents with small incontinent children, old people with touchy bladders, and individuals with upset bellies. All those people need speedy access to the restrooms! And yet, yet, I say, each store does it's best to hide the bathrooms! Yes, they do!

By the time you finally track down the exact location, it might even be too late!

And another thing! Why do stores routinely move all their merchandise to different locations so you can't find what you need? And WHY would they locate Ovaltine in the breakfast cereals instead of with the other products used to make chocolate milk? Why???

Why are milk and eggs always located at the back of the store? Why are there no prices on the produce and no handy-dandy clerk around to ask about it? Where do they all go, anyway? Ah-hah! I know. They're in the disappearing rest rooms!



  1. I had the same issue with a bathroom last week. So frustrating.

    If you get the answers to the rest of the question let me know. ;)

  2. Amber, I've had this happen to me too many times. Especially, when I was watching my grandkids over the summer.

  3. Milk and eggs are at the back of the store because that's what most people buy, and they want you to have to walk through the entire store before getting to them. The idea is that you'll pick up other things along the way.

  4. Heh. By the time I get there, I just want to go home, Liz! For folks who just need milk, it's a pain in the patooty.
