Maybe as long as one identifies as a Restroom Attendant he may enter and work in a Charlotte Bathroom.

Oh my gosh, you aren't the only one! That's the one thing I hate about flying into the Charlotte airport. I don't need anyone to hand me a paper towel (and expecting a tip for it). I'm fully capable of getting one myself. And their hanging around in there all the time gives me the willies.

With the exorbitant costs for flights out of CLT to begin with, they shouldn't need to tack on extra hidden fees to go the bathroom.
Exactly. Everything you said.

Not to mention they're handing you those towels, to dry your clean hands, with the same gloves they were wearing 30 seconds ago when they wiped down some toilets.

Never thought of it that way. Gross. Yeah I'll grab my own towel. Thanks anyway.

Yeah I see them all the time. Once I brought out my electric shaver to shave my beard, which was a process, made a big mess but they didn't bother me. They probably wished I left the mess for them to clean.

I never even knew people tip airport janitors? I just want them to get out of my way.

I am happy to say that I was leaving the restroom at the airport before boarding my overseas flight. I had the pleasure of speaking with a very pleasant gentleman in his 60s from Turkey. He was very pleasant and made my morning a bit less stressful. They can be an annoyance, but they are working and at least it isn't like lots of places in Europe and other overseas spots where you have to pay for use, especially if you don't have the correct change or currency at the time. Come on folks, we are an international city and we are just starting to do what the rest of the world is doing. I am sure that some of the naysayers **** all over the seats and in cases don't even flush. Tsk! Tsk! God bless them. They're working at least.
