The Future America, Today.
Advertisements [?]
I am just retired from the military. It's not enough to live on. So, I took a temporary job with a major delivery company. I have been working over 10 hours a day in excess of 140 delivery stops and in a rental truck not designed for delivery service. There is no time for lunch or other breaks. I have to keep moving before it gets dark when I can no longer read street signs and house numbers. Delivering in the dark takes 3 times as long. So during the day I need to use the bathroom. I pull into a park conveniently located in the center of my delivery area. The facility is just steps away from the parking lot. I rush to the door and it is locked. I ask myself, why would they lock a public restroom? I look around and I see signs, "Private Park, Club Members Only" I see a man in his car looking at me trying to open the door. But no attempt by him to get out of his car to open the bathroom for me. I just run back to my truck. Then the man gets out of his car and uses his key to do his business. I drive away while looking for that empty soda bottle I have.

Just say no to public health-care and public restrooms. :sarcasm:
