Bathroom Tax

This morning I bought a cup of coffee from a small chain restaurant in exchange for using their bathroom.

I gave away the coffee.

Is $2 a fair exchange rate for bathroom access?

In a strictly accounting sense, probably not.

But would I rather trade $2 for peace of mind and not having to go back home to change clothes?


Would I use $2 as a goodwill proxy to encourage small chain restaurants to have public restrooms?


It’s time to add a $5 bill to my poop kit.

Gotta pay that poop tax.
