Locked in the Bathroom

FB Fan Page:

I feel sorry for the 10 year old little girl. Her mother writes to Avvo because the child was locked in a restaurant bathroom. There was a problem with the door handle.

The gist of the mother's letter is that the wait staff were laughing and the manager was not as helpful as she could have been. If my child was in the same situation and scared, and the employees thought it was funny, I'd be angry too.

It reminds me of a time that really was funny; it was funny because the customers were laughing. They were a couple on a rather quiet night and the last two in the restaurant. They were having fun and had enjoyed libations.

She got up to use the restroom, and she took so long that he got concerned. He kept walking back and forth from the bathroom area back to his table and back again. Finally, they admitted to us that she was locked in the bathroom.

People go in but they don't come out! 
It took awhile, but if I remember correctly the hostess had to unscrew the hinges of the door; I know she got out eventually. Both of them seemed to think it was the funniest thing to ever happen to either of them. They even came in another night and reminded us of the "great joke." Personally, I would have been happy to forget, but I was glad they were not upset with us.

Perhaps restaurants should maintain our bathroom doors a bit better...


  1. This is reckless service. The mom should have reported the incident to the authorities.

    1. Boiler repair? Really? I'm leaving this up because sometimes SPAM is funny.
