Silver Lining



One day, about two weeks in, after lunch, leads and managers are storming in and out of the office. After maybe half an hour of stomping about, one of the leads, decidedly one of the friendlier, more engaging ones, comes in, and shouts for our attention. We all stop and stare. “Someone smeared SHIT, ALL OVER the bathroom. The cleaning lady is in TEARS.” A few people snicker and are stared down into oblivion. The rest of us are silent, in horror, probably all imagining the scene. The rest of that day was pretty awkward.

Geth on

    I did NOT see that punch coming. And sadly, I too snickered at the statement "The cleaning lady is in TEARS."

    I had trouble, reading the tale, due to the commas, which were numerous, and largely unnecessary.

    This story is weirdly common. Same thing happened at a Burger King I worked at.

    We are apes indeed.

    I am one of the snickerers. That sentence is funny to me. Also it made me think of the South Park episode where someone made dooky in the urinal.

    Something similar happened at a place I worked. The building was two stories; our company took up half of the ground floor and another company took up the other floor and a half. Naturally, each company openly-secretly blamed the other for the messes. There were two sets of bathrooms, but eventually the second company went and installed a brand new doorway requiring a keycard in front of the bathrooms on the second story. Heaven forfend that more than two people need to poop at the same time.
