A visit to a restroom is usually a private thing but some customers at a Texas restaurant say that’s not the case.

This comes after one man discovered a security camera in the restroom of Wolfie’s restaurant in Lake Conroe.

It’s not the place you’d expect to be under surveillance but the management says it’s for safety. The cameras are high up above the door so customers do not see them until they are about to exit.

There is a sign posted in the hallway stating the reason for the cameras but legal experts say it should not be done.

Management was asked about the tactic and they say it’s because some customers have destroyed property.

They also said if patrons do not like the cameras they do not have to go to the restroom.
