She made her bladder gladder, but her wallet sadder.
A Tennessee woman who ran into a restaurant to use the bathroom before running back out got a bill from the eatery for answering the call of nature without ordering anything.
Back in October, Patricia Barnes zipped into The Flood Zone in Erin, Tennessee and asked an employee if she could use the restroom. Barnes got the okay, did her business and then left. A few days later, she received a bill for $5 in the mail, along with a letter from the restaurant (addressed to Mrs. Edwards — that’s her husband’s last name) saying there’s a sign hanging up informing people there’s a $5 charge for non-customers using the restroom.
