What you think of this "odd" notice in restaurant bathroom?

No poop for you, Mismi.

@mismi,
I can honestly say I have never competed for such a title.

@Linkat,
From the "please only flush" reference, is it a polite, albeit indirect, way of asking ladies not to flush feminine products?

@mckenzie,
Probably. I have certainly heard of more direct notices on the subject.

@Linkat,
They appear to be emojis, Japanese inspired emoticons. There are hundreds of them. Google it. I believe friending poo with (only) TP will bring good luck.

Scary that you would hire a restaurant employee and need to remind them of this.


Yes, it is scary. But perhaps even more scary is the sign, found in almost all Boston health care facilities, asking the question ( usually in the bathrooms)
"Are you safe"? "Is someone hurting you"?

I don't know if this sign is mandated by law, but never the less, what it tells anyone who reads the message is that domestiv violence is everywhere.

Is this message also posted in the men's bathrooms at healthcare facilities?

@Miller,
I asked my husband, but he didn't use it that night -- he doesn't remember it from other times we have frequented the establishment.

I have seen those signs you mentioned. They also ask you these questions when you are giving birth -- well not actually while giving birth, but when you first arrive and you are in labor. They take the pregnant woman and do not allow the husband/significant other to go with them while they are first examened and then ask these questions. Then they allow the husband to come back in.

Odd timing in a way - here you are in labor and asking those sorts of questions - if you had a really hard painful contraction at the time who knows what you would accuse this man of?

@neologist,
Makes sense (not the luck part who would think poo is good luck) - but in a sushi place -

I think the sign is an attempt at funny, and a bad one. In Olympia we are now seeing signs "please dont do drugs in our bathroom", now that is done out of public service.

@Linkat,
When I was reading about emoji, I believe I saw that the Japanese words for poo and luck have similar sounds. Thus, the poo emoji means luck.
Would that be poomoji? Very Happy I don't know enough about it.

But, apparently, there are emojis to represent nearly every situation, including the mystical back of hand with raised center finger. Surprised Speculation abounds. Is it a return to ancient picture writing? Time will tell.

@Linkat,
Don't read too much into it. Sure, it's crass but it's a millennial crass.

Pile of poo emoji is pretty popular. This is merely a variant on that emoji meme. It's merely a weird take on cutesiness. A generational thing.

Is anyone familiar with this thing we call the internet? Crass humor has been around for a very long time.

That would be fine if only millennials see it. That is not the case now is it....

Especially in the location this restaurant is...millennial is not their target audience.

Some owners give their staff too much leash, staff morale should never come at the expense of sales, anything depresses sales or customer loyalty needs to be looked at for change.

@hawkeye10,
This is a very small place....my guess from the individuals working there it is all family members. Quite honestly we usually just order and take it out. On occasion we stay ... can't be more than a dozen booths and then a small sushi bar area. Service is fair..but they are very nice.
