Grant: I swore I’d never go into the public restroom again.
Martin: I assure you the situation is temporary.

Patron: The men’s room is out of toilet paper.

    _Staff_ restroom? Every library I’ve worked in, librarians and staff have had to use the same restrooms as our patrons. There is and was no such thing as a _staff_ restroom in any of the libraries I’ve worked in, at least not for men (there is one women’s restroom in the library accessible only to women staff and librarians who can only get in with a workplace key.

    Of course, I suppose I wouldn’t complain if we did have such a “luxury” in our library and wouldn’t have done so if that had been the case in my previous bibliographic workplaces. We do have several lockable, one-person lavatories, which are also available to the public. And actually, those are better than staff-only bathrooms and more democratic.
