Ok so thought I would share this story... it happened almost a week ago and it still annoys me. We had taken a road trip to city about 5 hours away. We had planned everything perfectly to get home with as little stops and fussing as possible, so at our first stop we went into a restaurant for lunch. I walked into the bathroom to change my childs diaper only to find they had NO CHANGE TABLE. I walked out and asked an employee if they had one somewhere else (who doesn't have change tables these days?). The woman told me that they didn't have any due to the fact that they were unsanitary... Ok so normally they are in the bathroom, which is unsanitary on its own so who cares. My answer back to her was "well it will be more insanitary because I am changing her diaper on a table now!"
"Oh you can't do that."
I couldn't believe it, she went to go ask her manager if that would be ok. I told my hubby not to pay for our food until they allowed me to change her diaper because as far as I was concerned every establishment who allows children under 18 into their building should supply their patrons with a change table!! Needless to say I will not be stopping there again.
