McDonald's - Install EMERGENCY TOILET PAPER alarms in all toilet cubicles

This petition had 41 supporters

This evening, I was faced with a terrible experience at my local McDonald's close to Southend Airport - I didn't check that there was any toilet paper in the cubicle before getting down to business, and the inevitable happened.

After the reality of the situation sunk in, I had to tentatively pull up and zip up, and briskly walk 'John Wayne' style back into the restaurant area to grab a handful of napkins before waddling back into the cubicle to finalise things - this is not something that should happen in 2017.

A lack of phone signal meant that I couldn't even call the manager to send someone with supplies.

The technology already exists to install red cord alarms in the disabled toilet cubicle, so my request is simple - these should be installed in every single toilet cubicle for emergency situations such as mine tonight.

Perhaps a different colour would be suitable. Brown would be too obvious, so perhaps a yellow colour would offer a clear distinction between the medical emergency cord and a regular light cord.

Once pulled, a member of staff could push a few sheets under the toilet door, before replenishing the dispenser at the earliest opportunity. 

I wasn't loving it tonight, but if you are willing to pioneer this idea I am 100% convinced that other businesses would follow suit.

You would go down in history for this breakthrough in the hospitality industry.
