|Gives a whole new meaning to 'things are looking up'|
That’s the consensus among skirt-wearing employees at the newly built Ohio Courthouse. Anyone with a view up to the wazoo, including male kilt wearers, are being warned that they could be subjected to peeping toms below if they choose to take the stairs instead of the elevator. The only other option is for all the employees to start wearing trousers, which many women, especially Pentecostals, refuse to do.
“Talk about a room with a view,” says career peeping Tom, Abner Magee. “This building is a dream come true for me.”
Abner claims when he heard about the bathroom experiment in downtown NYC, [where people going in could see out but those looking at the free-standing restrooms from the outside could not see in], he thought it was a step in the right direction.
“But I was frustrated,” he said. “I would hang around outside those toilets all day long watching pretty girls go in, but couldn’t find one angle that would allow me to even get a glimpse of what was going on inside.” On more than one occasion, Magee was removed from the areas outside the see-thru toilets and eventually asked to leave New York City altogether.
Originally from Chicago, Abner Magee moved to Columbus immediately upon hearing about the glass staircase. “We don’t have any easy access buildings like this in Chitown, so I pretty much have to go where the action is,” said Magee from a jail cell that overlooks the new courthouse.
Magee was arrested just moments after arriving in downtown Columbus and entering the new building. “In retrospect,” he said” I guess the binoculars were a dead give away.”
For those with more self-control, the Franklin County Common Pleas Court building is located at 345 S. High Street, Columbus, Ohio. Proper ‘dress’ attire is required.
