"To Pee Or Not To Pee, That Is The Question."

Now This Is What I Call News

The most popular  story for the week of  August 5, 2013 was Leo Azambuja's " To pay a fee, or not, to pee,"in the Garden Island news according to their website.
http://thegardenisland.com/news/local/to-pay-a-fee-or-not-to-pee/article_d42e64b8-fd99-11e2-aa6c-0019bb2963f4.html

I find this quite amusing  with all  that's going on statewide and locally with GMO's , The Christopher Deedy trial, Sears closing and  so many other real news that this story gandered  the most interest of any article in the paper?

The article basically told the story of the Bistro restaurant in Kilauea's Kong Lung shopping center  that charges non patrons  $10.00 to use the restroom and those  shopping at Kong Ling center  but not eating at the restaurant can pay $8.00, while customers that eat there can use it for free! The shopping center  currently has septic problems and have brought in porta potties as a temporary fix, yet everyone is still up in arms.

Dakinetalk blogged about this  and received many comments  from, "what's next, charging for the  fresh salted ocean water we breathe, to charging extra if you use the toilet paper." 

The best  comment about this whole scenario was,"I believe use of restroom is free if you eat there. So you could get the cheapest thing on the menu which is probably less than $10."

To pee or not to pee, that is the question on Kaua'i's  north shore city of Kilauea,  it's all up to you. Maybe just purchase a coffee to go, then if you have to pee, you can wee for free!  Now this is what I call news!

P.S. Enclosed is another  version of the above sent  to the Garden Island News for possible publication as an opinion article;

To pee or not to pee, that is the question on Kaua'i's  north shore city of Kilauea? 

The most popular story of the week in the online edition of TGI according to their website  was Leo Azambuja's, " To pay a fee, or not, to pee.

This is  why,
1- Leo is an excellent writer. 
2-This is what  people crave to read.
3- The story  makes you laugh, think, and scratch your head, it's not always about breaking news that wins our hearts.

The article told the story of the Bistro restaurant in Kilauea's Kong Lung shopping center that charges non patrons $10.00 to use the restroom and those  shopping at Kong Ling center  but not eating at the restaurant $8.00, while customers that eat there can use it for free! 

The shopping center currently has septic problems and have brought in porta potties as a temporary fix, yet everyone is still up in arms.

 The best  comment  on Facebook about this whole scenario was,"I believe use of  the restroom is free if you eat there, therefore you could purchase  the least expensive  item on the menu which is most likely under $10."

Purchase a coffee to go, then if you have to wee, you can pee, for nearly  free, say that ten times fast. Now that's what I call news!

Should bring in the TV news team to document the reactions on all,or just lock all rest rooms in the restaurant or will the kitchen be far behind if one needs to go ?
