It's the Law to Stall Progress

At one of my favorite holes-in-the-wall in the Sunset District the signage on the Men's and Women's restrooms has been changed.

They're getting a jump on the new law. Two weeks ago Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill requiring "that businesses and governments post non-gender-specific signs on single-occupant restrooms by March 1, 2017."

There is a beneficial side-effect to the new signage: greater efficiency. Often I've observed ladies waiting outside "their" restroom while the Men's room was unoccupied. Everyone can now use either restroom, and overall wait times should go down. Progress.
