Did someone see my flask?

You know when you go to a public restroom and usually on the back of the door on the inside is a little reminder for employees to wash their hands before returning to work? Kinda like this one...


Well, this weekend I visited Bo Bo China and happened to use the restroom while I was there. Not a big surprise, I usually take about TWO trips to the restroom nowadays. But anyways, while in the restroom I finish up and go to the sink to wash my hands and notice a very interesting sign posted on the back of the door where the hand washing sign SHOULD be. Here is what it read...
The Surgeon General's warning states that pregnant women should abstain from alcohol consumption in order to eliminate the chance of giving birth to a baby with any of the harmful effects of the Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD).
I turned around to look behind me because I felt like it was put there specifically for me. Does someone at Bo Bo think I need a reminder? Did they notice how crazy I have become trying to maintain the THREE children I already have and they feel I may take drastic measures? There was no hand washing sign in sight. No other sign posted of any other sort, just this one. I felt like I was in trouble and I hadn't even done anything. I felt like if I opened the door there would be 6 Chinese workers there to frisk me for a flask before I left the bathroom. I know I've fallen slightly off my rocker lately, but COME ON PEOPLE, I'm no drinker! Get off my case!

I think there should be a lot more "helpful" signs around town. Like a "Fasten your SELTBELT!" sign above the pulpit at church. Just so people get the idea.

Also, of course drunk pregnant women congregate in restrooms- think of their poor little bladders, full of alcohol and love.

Thanks for doing the survey, Austin! In a weird way, it makes me feel guilty for dragging innocent people into it, but, hey, oh well.
