When you gotta go, you gotta go. It happens to everyone, but not like what happened at Tim Hortons Langley.
Answering the call of nature
Generally speaking, most places in Canada will let you come in and use the washroom. You know, because it’s Canada. People are nicer here, most of the time.
This was not one of those times.
A Langley, BC woman came in a Tim Hortons to use the bathroom. She asked a member of the crew, who said no.
What happens next is probably one of the most disgusting things you will ever see on the internet.
You can find the video online. Viewer discretion is very strongly advised.
The video, which has since gone viral (ewww) on YouTube and LiveLeak, shows the woman getting angry at the poor unfortunate Tim Hortons staff member.
After being denied use of the bathroom, she did what any other sane human being would do.
She relieved herself right in the middle of the store.
As if that wasn’t enough, she picked up her own poop and threw it at the Tim Hortons staff behind the counter.
We don’t know about you, but we think that’s pretty gross.
The Mounties always get their man
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) were called. The woman was picked up, but released shortly after. She’s been asked to appear before a judge by the B.C. Prosecution Service.
No word on what they’ll be talking about on the court date, but we’re thinking it might involve poop.
Langley is a small town of just over 25,000 people, so it wasn’t too hard for the Mounties to find their man. Or in this case, a very angry woman who needed to use the bathroom.
Tim Hortons released this statement after the incident: “Our current understanding is that the team member used their discretion in this case and denied access to this guest based on past behaviour and out of concern for the immediate safety of team members and guests in the restaurant. As matters escalated, the Team Member contacted local authorities for assistance.”
The statement continues by saying: “We are deeply concerned by this video as the safety of our team members and guests is always a top priority for us. In limited cases across the country, Restaurants have a restricted access policy for restrooms to ensure the well-being of our guests.”
In the meantime, go to other Tim Hortons
In the meantime, there are 14 other Tim Hortons in the area. Might be a good idea to stay away from that one until they’re done with the cleanup. We hope that everyone gets the help they need, especially the Tim Hortons staff member and the woman involved.
