When Public Restrooms Aren't so Public...

As a Full-time Freelancer, I find myself in Manhattan on a regular basis for meetings, or just to meet friends for a concert, dinner or a movie. Recently, Chipotle, Panera Bread and Starbucks have put coded keypads on their restroom doors. In a way, I don't blame them, homeless people have been known to wander in, so in that way, they're a good deterrent.  Even when I buy coffee or a meal, half the time the keypad code doesn't work...It's a good thing there's usually a Barnes & Noble or a McDonald's nearby, where the bathrooms still truly are public!
