    Would you feel safer if they are all over the floor?

    I'd feel safer if they had a way of ensuring that they weren't there at all.
    Failing that, I'll settle for it being so rare that it's the sort of thing the manager apologizes profusely for and is embarrassed by. Not the sort of thing that's so commonplace in their establishment that they're giving up and tacitly condoning it by making it more acceptable there.

    Which would be what?

    Incarcerate all junkies, since you can spot them from a mile away and all. If that doesn't work, kill them.

    “Higher”? Please stop breaking my stones until you do better with the easy words.

    Hey now. I’ve never even been inside a Starbucks bathroom.

    Me either. Although, I once got busy in a Burger King bathroom.

    Junkies in your Starbucks bathroom are symptomatic of much bigger public health problems.

    In addition to sharps disposal, maybe we need to

    - meaningfully treat mental health and drug addiction issues in this country

    - build some needle exchanges

    - and safe injection sites

    - and build some more public restrooms, so that businesses like Starbucks or McDonalds aren't the default destination for every bladder in America.

    Don't take this the wrong way, but I think I'd rather find a pile of needles in my stall.

    Why would I take that the wrong way?

    Should we build a wall around Starbucks?

    The smell of burned coffee beans should be enough to keep most folks out.
