When you gotta go, don’t count on going at Starbucks.

The caffeine king, with 190 locations in Manhattan alone, has been steadily closing some of its restrooms.

“Starbucks cannot be the public bathroom in the city anymore,” said a source familiar with the company’s New York plans.

“They are not eliminating bathrooms, but feeling the pressure of more people,” the source said.

The source has a sense of humour, and – I’d wager – easy access to a toilet.

I have images of Starbucks’ more-money-than-brains clientele turning all feral and making the sidewalk out front into a makeshift sewer (no joke – just typed “makeshit” there by mistake). That said, this probably already happens at the Starbucks in Paris. Those Frenchies love their public pissing.
