The person stationed in those fancy-schmancy restaurant restrooms. Ready to assist you after you’ve done your 1 or 2 duties.

Does the restaurant pay you? Not sure how they do it in the other places, but I get a $50 flat fee for the night and get to keep the tips.

How much do you usually make in tips? Around $150. $200 on a busy night.

What are your hours like? Friday and Saturday nights I work from around 6:30pm to 1:30am. I don’t work the week usually. It doesn’t pay…literally.

Does the restaurant set you up with the gum, mints and lotions? Nope. I have to supply that stuff, plus a mop, broom, liquid hand soap and even the tip basket.

So how do you earn the tip money? When a patron is done with their business, I turn on and test the water, give a squirt of soap and a towel when they’re done. That's pretty much the trick of the trade.

What’s your biggest pet peeve? Look, I know people don’t want to tip and I deal with it, even though it sucks. I just get grossed out when the customer doesn’t use the sink or anything just to avoid tipping me a buck.

  1. He has to supply the mop and broom? That's ridiculous. Isn't having a bathroom attendant insensitive to people with shy bladders?
