You're the hostess at the "upscale" pizza lounge in downtown Huntington Beach who refused my granddaughter access to the restroom since they're "for customers only." I guess you didn't realize that when a toddler says she has to pee, SHE HAS TO PEE! Perhaps you gained a new understanding as she christened your entry/patio area with a whole lot of "liquid" on the way out. Kudos to the unfortunate but extremely understanding customers who had to witness this young girl's public humiliation while they were eating mere feet away. Perhaps you had time to rethink spirit vs. letter of the law while cleaning up the mess, but judging by the fake smile and blank look in your eyes, I doubt it.
