After a 7.5 hour overnight train ride from Prague to Vienna, desperate to go to the bathroom. I ran off the train, towards the closest washroom, and stopped dead in my tracks. 52 Euro cents to use the toilet. Damn!! No money. I ran back, grabbed some cash, and ran back.
This poor old woman took my money, lifted a big heavy key from around her neck, and unlocked a giant lock on one of the stalls.
This has got to be the worst job on earth. She sits inside the bathroom and inhales other people's crap and urine all day, just so she can unlock these stupid doors for people. Give the woman some dignity for god's sake. Sometimes I wonder what is wrong with the world.
