Public Bathroom Etiquette.

Okay so I work in a call center. Everyone shares desks, very germy. Now don't get me wrong I'm no germophob but I make sure to clean my keyboard, mouse, and desk when I sit down everyday. I mean really...who knows what the last person was doing while they were there. Okay so the problem is everyone is not as diligent as I. Disturbing, I know. So this brings me to my next point, our work has made it pretty easy for us to be germ free, they provide clorox wipes. When they built the building they had automatic flushing toilets, automatic soap dispensers and automatic paper towel dispensers put in the restrooms. Okay so with all these amenities one would think that people have no problem getting through bathroom routines without problem. Nope. I witnessed a girl yesterday come out of a stall and "wash" her hands with water only. Seriously? Does using soap take so long that you can only use water? I mean come on, I was standing right there. At least pretend that you normally wash your hands with soap for my sake. Or when people leave without even washing their hands at all? Ew. I was discussing this with someone and they brought up that people aren't always going to the bathroom sometimes they are just fixing their hair....good point however I feel that if the stall is entered at all and the stall door is touched then one must wash their hands, I mean I don't even want to think about some of the germs on those doors. Ew. So if you are one of these people please take note. If not, thank you for trying to make the workplace less germy for all of us. Okay I'm just going to climb down off my soap box now.


Bomb Threat?

Totally serious, no joke.
So I get to work last night 7:30, clock in. Notice my managers acting weird but blow it off...then before I can even sit down they are evacuating the building. Hmm...
So everyone does as told, drill time...weird that they didn't set off the fire alarm. Oh well. Less noisy. All the way out to the corner of the parking lot. Sitting...sitting...I think we sat and chatted for about 30 minutes. Then spearmint guy (I call him that because his shirt was huge and spearmint colored) comes to tell us that there has in fact been a bomb threat made on our building and to be safe they have to search the building. Great. Everyone needs to move to the parking lot for the building next door. We do as told. No sooner do we get over there then spearmint guy is telling us we have five minutes to go get our cars and bring them into this lot. Phew thank goodness I brought my stuff out with me. Some people left their keys inside thinking it was a drill. So we all move our cars. Oh, did I mention it is raining? Yeah it was raining and a little chilly. So we sit in our cars or stand in the rain...whatever. They call the police who rope off the parking lot then they bring in the bomb sniffing dogs, I know right? Bomb sniffing dogs? Then a fire truck, an ambulance and finally time to search. Then they search, and search, and search. And find....nothing. Well that's good news. In short, three hours paid for sitting in my car with a friend listening to music. Seriously. A bomb threat?


Just what I needed.

Don' t you love when you sit down and read a talk or some scriptures and it is exactly what you needed. Last night I read two conference talks while I was at work and both were like that. Just exactly what I needed right at that moment. Heavenly Father works in such wonderful ways.
