thought racing through the person reading the sign and realizing the situation is:

"Why don't you have a stupid button to push in order to bring attention to the fact that the toilet has backed up replicating the 'Big Muddy' on the floor and also the fact that you're all out of TP"

  1. The button has been removed because it was unhygienic to have so many customers touching it when the restrooms needed attention.
  2. We apologise for the inconvenience.
  3. Please write your suggestions on the paper provided and submit via the usual channels.

Obviously the button is not visible right now because the restroom does not need attention at this time.

due to current govenment hygene regulations on "no-touch" restrooms some services are no longer provided.

At a remote location the evil Janitor King watches surveillance footage of this area and laughs maniacally as restroom patrons frantically search in vain for a way to request more toilet paper. First this bathroom, then… … … the world!

Uh, Not the ones I cleaned years ago when I worked for a cleaning company out of high school one summer. All I'll say is people "both sexes" are nasty when it comes to public toilets/restrooms. I can not imaging people keeping there own home bathrooms like they leave public ones. It's like there wanting to showoff there master piece or something.

"Restrooms"? Does this give me permission to go into the Ladies' Room to check theirs?

If button is missing, write your complaint on a piece of toilet paper and flush it down. It will get to our low level repair center.
