Amazon Delivery Messenger, she/her

"I am a delivery foot messenger for Amazon. I work outside all day sometimes up to 10 hours. I was working a long shift and hadn’t used the restroom all day I really needed to go. I asked buildings doorman’s & restaurants thinking maybe they might treat me a little better bc I’m a delivery worker. I was wrong. They all kept saying for employees only, no bc of COVID or that I’d have to buy something. I ended up just waiting til I got off work and rushed to Grand Central to go, although I felt like I wasn’t going to make it."

GCS has decent bathrooms, but Penn is a nightmare. I followed handicapped signs (I am), and I found nothing. I went out on 7 Av., and the McD was out of service. In desperation, I ran into Macy's, where the sales people just nodded in the general direction. I did not make it, but I buttoned my long coat and found a cab hime.

As an ESL teacher, I felt obliged to advise students about this (it was a guaranteed winner as a discussion topic, too.) In addition to the McDonald/Starbucks/Pret-a-Manger options, our libraries and police stations must allow access to everyone. Libraries can be wonderful; for police stations I'd suggest acting like a New Yorker - stroll in like you belong, nod at the desk sergeant and follow the signs. What do you think?

Another unfortunate sign of "blue wall" between police and citizens; so cross that one off list. On the plus side, subways, parks and playgrounds increasingly have unlocked their toilets, although cleanliness varies.
