I don’t watch the news as often as I used to, what with all the laundry and volunteering I’m always doing, but this thing about public restrooms caught my eye. I need to speak up on the issue because I am worried about our population. I’m worried about the overwhelming misinformation. I am worried that so many people have missed the point of Target entirely — and are going there just so they can use their restrooms.
Who are these people who go to Target specifically to use their restrooms? Why are they and/or their children spending so much time in there? Do they not have toilets at home?
What no one seems to be talking about here is that public restrooms are disgusting. All of them. You should never, ever want your child in a public restroom. It’s like walking through a cloud of germs and urine. You should be planning outings with your children AROUND potty usage, not FOR potty usage. And if you can’t do that? What is happening in your life? Is this something I can’t understand because I only have two kids? I rarely even have my kids with me at a store anymore now that they are both in school, but if I do and they need to go potty, I tell them to hold it.
Because if they are not old enough to hold it, they are not old enough to use a public restroom unsupervised.
I can’t even imagine all the things my 6 year-old would touch if she was unsupervised in a public restroom. Blech. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.
When they were smaller and I was in a public restroom with them, I can assure you I was the dangerous one. I mean, the stress levels that moms with young children reach in public restrooms have to be like Hulk Smash levels.
And you guys: the restrooms are not the best part of Target. We need to offer tours of the place for the people spending all that time in the Target restrooms.
They sell clothes — cute clothes, not just random crap. They have shoes. Toys. Home goods. Some of those home goods are cute, cute, cute. I can’t believe that apparently some people don’t know this about Target! We need to get their asses out of the restrooms! Show them the amazing wonders of shopping at Target!
And maybe start a GoFundMe account to fix their indoor plumbing.
