Five-Year-Old Finds Cell Phone Camera in Starbucks Bathroom

Illustration for article titled Five-Year-Old Finds Cell Phone Camera in Starbucks Bathroom


Via KTLA, a mother was understandably upset when her 5-year-old son found a camera phone in a Starbucks womens’ bathroom in Lancaster, California. The phone was under the sink and had been propped up with paper towels so it could point at the toilet. The 5-year-old detail is actually important here: it would’ve been extremely difficult to notice for anyone without a 5-year-old’s eye level, and as such, it’s unclear exactly how long it had been recording.


When the woman, who asked not to be identified, told the employees, they immediately contacted the police, who came and quickly seized the phone. It’s unclear who left the phone in the bathroom, but it isn’t the first time we’ve seen a story like this. Hell, it isn’t the first time we’ve seen one involving Starbucks. Creepers gonna creep, apparently, but the amazing thing is, these dudes* always seem to get caught. Hopefully, this case won’t be an exception.

Anyone have any recommendations for how to regain my faith in humanity? Should I go see Inside Out again? I’m struggling right now.


* Of course it’s always dudes, don’t be an ass.

Drink heavily and yell at the sky.

Always helps me, but then I have a pretty low level of faith in our species to start with.
