Should you pay to go? A Niagara Falls diner pondering that age old question
Should restaurants charge you if you make a pitstop, use their washroom facilities and leave without having anything to eat or drink?
That's a problem many eateries grapple with and one in Tennessee making headlines after sending a non customer a bill for five dollars for using its restroom.
But as it turns out a Niagara Falls restaurant is having the exact same debate.
Regal Diner owner Anj Peebles tells 610 CKTB, she and her husband Simon have tweeted Mayor Jim Diodatti asking the city build a public washroom on Main Street.
Anj says they are right near a city transit bus transfer point and there aren't many other businesses around that have restrooms.
Anj adding they are getting tired of the so called "bathroom poachers" who she notes have their own body language, putting their head down, and looking at the floor as they push forward to the washroom.
She says they plan to send the Mayor a new tweet with a temporary suggestion that involves putting some porta potties on the site of the former Serbian Hall on Main Street which the city recently purchased.
