Almost walked into theirs, saw 'hers' and instinctively went to go into 'his', but then realized there were extra letters involved here. Upon further inspection it said 'theirs'.

Wife and I were wondering what it costs. I estimate $50-60k in buildout, plus cleaning three bathroom's instead of two and keeping a 'theirs' employee on staff just for cleaning. Hopefully new additional alaphebet customers generate enough business by being attracted to progressive businesses with three bathroom's rather than two. I can't imagine they'll ever break even.

The joke is on them. “Theirs” is a plural possessive. It suggests that the room is intended for couples.

I’ll just leave that right there.

Merriam-Webster just released the new words this last week. "They" is now available to be used in the singular.



https://www.merriam-webster.co...ds-in-the-dictionary

They: expanded to include this sense: “used to refer to a single person whose gender identity is nonbinary.” It's an expansion of a use that is sometimes called the “singular they” (and one that has a long history in English). When a reflexive pronoun corresponding to singular use of they is needed, themself is seeing increasing use.

BTW, my family was vacationing through the mid-west 40+ years ago - stopped at one place that had three doors - Men, Women, and Undecided. Happened to see someone open the third one - it was the janitor's closet (and yes, I understand the irony of using the word "closet").

Use hers and piss all over the seat



Pickin' stones and pullin' teats is a hard way to make a living. But, sure as God's got sandals, it beats fightin' dudes with treasure trails.

We've been tricked, we've been backstabbed, and we've been quite possibly, bamboozled.

Lol. I use family bathrooms every time I’m at the airport. More private. Almost always open. And I usually have my opp sex child with me, so no bitching from anyone then.
Believe it or not, my local U had someone who freaked when I brought my then 3 yo son into the women’s bathroom to pee before swimming class. Had to stop class and open the family bathroom so he could use the toilet every week after that. (He typically peed once before and once towards the end of class). What utter bs. But I learned.
A family bathroom should cover every individual’s needs. No need to relabel.

I have a small business, supplying independently owned hardware stores (Ace, True Value, etc.)

In one of the stores they are renovating the restrooms, one at a time. They are currently working on what used to be the women's room, so that is closed. The one that used to be the men's room is now re-labeled "family."

On my last visit to the store, I told the manager (whom I have known for many years), "I really have to pee, and I can't use the 'family' room because it's just me, I didn't bring my wife or kids with me."



A mind is a terrible thing.

It wasn't. I was showing my wife and waiter walked up. It was a Theirs bathroom not a Family one. I was surprised, waiter was a younger guy, college aged. He rolled his eyes at the discussion of the bathroom.

They got shrubbery outside? Just go piss in the pine tree. There used to be a rule that you never build a house where you can't take a leak out in the yard. Ever been to a party at a house where there's a line of women at the john, each taking a few minutes to do their business? I don't have friends who are too prissy to piss outdoors. It becomes a landscaping issue at that point.

A friend was over for a party at my house. Big event out on the river, fireworks party. He went inside and saw the lines. One for the guess bathroom, another upstairs, and a third in our bedroom. He asked if I minded if he took a leak behind the garage. Foolish question, of course not. Its were I go. The yard was terraced and he hossed it out on the lower level. There were some bushes lining the next level. Sure enough, some drunk girl was there pissing. he waited until he was done, all the while watching. He then mentioned to her "nice". She screamed as if he violated her somehow. She was the one showing it, he just looked. She ran off, trying to get her jeans and undies up. Smile

Had they called my dick nice, I'd have worried about his life decisions.

Some evenings I can't make it from the garage to the house. So I go alongside the garage. My garage, I'll do as I please.

It was Jackson's in Reston Town Center. They are part of Great American Restaurants. So if you like Coastal Flats, Artie's, Sweetwater Tavern, then you'll likely like Jackson's. If you end up going my favorite thing on the menu is the French Dip. Sliced prime rib (lots of it) and au jus. I add havarti to it. Was my 40th birthday last night. I got 8oz filet and crab cake, their crab cakes are awesome. Shirp and crab fritters for the app. Moscow mule for the drink.

Their virtue signalling will not stop me from going again. It's their business decision, I think it's a stupid one to make, but in the end still it doesn't affect me.

I'd highly recommend you go and try the French dip. For lunch, you guys could share French dip and app and walk away full, we've even done that for dinner.

I first ran into that nonsense in 2009 when we were touring colleges for my soon to be high school graduate son. We were touring the University of Vermont campus when we came across a gender neutral bathroom. I asked the tour guide what that meant and he said in a sincere voice that it was for students who might not feel comfortable identifying as particular sex. I laughed but neither he nor any of the other parents on the tour seemed as amused. Roll Eyes

Ha! I had almost the exact experience with swimming lessons at the local College when I was about 3. My mom took me through the women's locker room to go pee and I remember a bunch of older women giving me dirty looks and saying why is a boy in here? It felt bit awkward even at 3-4 years old.

If I saw that nonsense in restaurant or any place I was a paying customer, I'd call the manager over and ask them just what in the fuck this is supposed to be, and how 'bout I walk in the "Hers" out of a sense of confusion?

Stupid fucking shit
