Jaipur restaurant has saree and mundu signs for bathrooms, netizens say 'it's impossible to decode after a drink'
Have you ever entered the wrong washroom? Washroom signs displayed at a restaurant in Jaipur have left netizens worried as they thought they would have ended up entering the wrong bathroom.
Podcaster Ravi Handa posted pictures of the washroom signs at a South Indian restaurant in the Vaishali Nagar area and netizens are confused.
While one sign has a slant red line indicating a saree, the other has a straight red line indicating a mundu. The first was meant for women and the latter for men.
"Request to all restaurants - please start using English to indicate bathrooms. Stop relying on our fashion sense," Handa wrote.
He added, "For the few who don’t get it, Left with a slanted line is indicating a saari, so female. Right with a straight line coming down from the waist is indicating a lungi / dhoti / mundu, so male. Restaurant is located in Jaipur, Rajasthan."
Handa further said, "I am just saying that having clear His / Her name plates is better."
Most netizens were left scratching their heads as they could not decode the washroom signs instantly. They said that such signs would be hard to decipher if they were drunk.
One user said, "1 minute ke kaam mein 2 minute decode karna padta hai pehle." Another wrote, "The most irritating trend! Especially after a drink or two it's impossible to assess."
A third user added, "It's actually a very gender sensitive sign. Anyone who wear Saaree etc can enter regardless of biological sex." Someone commented, "Decoding this under pressure can be challenging."
A post read, "The other day I went to a restaurant with ultra modern bathroom indicators and I had to wait until I saw someone come out of one, to make the correct decision. This is a lot of brain work." Yet another user commented, "No time to play Pictionary."
