The Scrawl on the Wall

A glass of Guinness; wary yet prepared.

I can't stand this damn place. It's just so dingy and not even in an interesting way. Yet for some reason, my friends were obsessed with it for a long time and I found myself here more often than I'd like.

Yeah, there's cheap beer and cheap shit to keep you mildly entertained ( a cheap ass pool table and some cheap ass dart sets ), but you can do better. I think part of the reason my friends liked it so much is that nothing happens here ever. It may be one of the deadest bars in this bar-heavy area. That said, there are plenty of places to sit and you won't have to fight for control of the jukebox.

But none of that really matters because the bathroom is shit.

Much like this bar is a hole in the ground, its bathroom is very much a hole in the wall. It's often filthy beyond measure, which makes no sense because like I said: nobody's ever here. Mind the floor. Who knows when it's been mopped. Bring your own toilet paper. Who knows where theirs has been.

Above all, be careful when you squat. Put enough toilet paper into the bowl before you go. Get as close as you can to the seat without risking venereal disease. I remember a night I peed here and the splashback hit me like a freaking geyser. Even when I tried to moderate my flow, I kept getting bombed. I remember groaning and whining and maybe thinking of crying.

Save yourself the PTSD. Find another place to pee.
