I stop in a restaurant to use the restroom.
Now, I know sometimes people put art inside to sort of spiffy the place up.
But in this (semi-fancy) restaurant's restroom, there was actually advertising--yes, right where you do your thing.
And in one spot, they had this sign from Insite Advertising, Inc. for the bathroom advertisements.
"...Thank you for allowing us to spend this time alone with you. We understand that during your hectic day quiet moments are few and far between..."
Well, this was one alone time that was definitely interrupted and a little less quiet.
Isn't there any place we can go anymore without being bombarded by branding, marketing, advertising, selling, and companies trying to make a another quick buck.
Darn, leave us alone and give us our bathrooms back--I'm not buying from you at a time like this! ;-)
