The following is an interview of an acquaintance (FYI…I’d call him a friend if he had a sexier occupation) who is a “professional” bathroom attendant at a popular Manhattan bar. That is, the guy who hovers over the bathroom sink turning the water on and off, then handing you paper towels. While this interview was meant to be informative, unfortunately it was not. However, it was humorous.
I should let you know that it was a hybrid written/verbal interview, but the written portion had to be translated verbally afterward, so the write-up is my best attempt at merging everything. I corrected his grammar here and there, while trying to keep it authentic. What follows is a glimpse into what you’re dealing with when dealing with the bathroom attendant.
Kavorka: How long have you been a bathroom attendant?
Bathroom Attendant: Since I was working in North Carolina.
Kavorka: OK, but what year did you first start working in bathrooms as an attendant? (more…)
