File under just another day at the office. Cristina Moguel, general manager of John Martin's Restaurant and Irish Pub, relates this story of a memorable drunk.
"This chick took our toilet seat out of the handicapped stall and ran out with it. She was wasted. I had to chase her out into the street. She finally surrendered after a 20 minute facedown. I had to threaten to call the cops. I have no idea why she did it. She said she just wanted to. I didn't even wanna grab it out of her hands. It was still warm."
