A: Your experience at Dotty's sounds distressing and uncomfortable. It's important to know that customers have a reasonable expectation of privacy and respect, especially in situations like using a restroom. The behavior of the attendant, as described, seems inappropriate and potentially a violation of your rights as a patron.

If you feel that your rights were violated or that you were treated unfairly, there are a few steps you could take. First, consider filing a formal complaint with the management of Dotty's. Detailing your experience can alert them to potential issues with staff behavior and customer service practices.

Additionally, you might want to review the policies of Dotty's regarding restroom usage. If their policies are unclear or if the staff's actions contradicted their own policies, this could strengthen your complaint.

If the situation escalates or if you believe there are larger legal implications, such as discrimination or harassment, it may be wise to consult with an attorney. They can provide guidance based on the specifics of your experience and the applicable laws in Nevada.

Remember, everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, and your concerns are valid. Taking action not only addresses your situation but could also prevent similar incidents in the future.
