You can only imagine the reasons that led to a Durban North beachfront restaurant charging non-patrons R20 to use their toilets
But the per-person fee drove Reeza Khan to write a Facebook rant on the situation, pissed off after receiving a receipt for using Jolly Grubber’s facilities.
In my whole entire existence on this earth.. this is the most expensive p*** I’ve ever taken… R20 each to use the rest rooms.. That’s ridiculous… oh wowwww and to top it off‚ we even received a slip for the facilities used #daylightrobberybutatnight.
We’ll assume the stars stand for the letters ‘iss’ and not ‘oes’.
The comment was posted along with a picture of the receipt. This via TimesLive:
I guess it’s pretty obvious that Jolly Grubber has had enough of allowing non-patrons into their restaurant for a pee.
Outside their restaurant, they have a notice stating the toilets are for customers only. It reads:
Buying just drinks will not qualify you to use these toilets.
Therefore it is unlawful/dishonest/theft/haraam to use this facility without permission.
Service charge of R20 per person payable at the counter.
This is not a public toilet.
While Reeza Khan could not be contacted for comment, Jolly Grubber’s owner Junaid Moola came out in defence of his decision to charge the R20 fee:
It’s private property‚ customers only. There is a public toilet in the vicinity‚ people can use that. R20 is not even enough. We have the issue of buying a R10 bottle of water and there will be four of them wanting to use the toilet‚ where is the logic? For my customers it’s free‚ enjoy. I have a sign that warns people that we are not a public facility‚ they must pay the R20.
Hopping over to their Facebook page, Jolly Grubber clearly felt the pressure to share their reasons for charging non-patrons:
- When a table of 8 people sit down and pretend to be customers, when all of them are done with the loo, they get up and leave.
- Sneaking in with other customers “tailgate”, use the loo and leave.
- Vandalizing and Damaging our facilities.
- Abusing and wasting water and toilets paper that ends up clogging the toilets.
And there you have it, Khan. Maybe next time just use the public toilets.
