Reader surprised by restroom discovery
If anyone had a camera on my face a couple of weeks ago when I went to the restroom at a service station on the outskirts of St. John’s, they would have made a fortune.
I was shocked, troubled, dismayed, all of the above. There on the wall was a used needle receptacle; just like the ones in the hospitals.
When I asked the cashier about this, she said she’d seen receptacles like theirs in other service stations around town too, primarily for drug users.
Dear God, has this become our normal? I asked a young man to check out the men’s restroom and he said there was one there as well.
What’s going on? Who puts these receptacles there? Are they monitored? Who, what where, when, why? W5 TV show could use a program on this.
What has the world come to? God guard thee Newfoundland and Labrador.
