Things!  In!  Bags!

Water! Fountains! In! Bags!

Sink!  In! A!  Bag!

The Friday of finals week, a coworker took it upon herself to clean out the department fridge, without warning anyone. Usually the departmental secretary would send out an email on Monday, warning everyone to mark their food, then send another warning email the day before. This time there was no warning.

That would have been annoying enough. However my container of hummus was thrown out. I didn’t take a lunch the next Monday, thinking I had something to eat at work. Nope. I also had no money, not that it mattered, because the cafeteria was closed for the semester break.

Annoying, right? But that wasn’t the worst part. The coworker who cleaned out the fridge dumped food down the disposal. The disposal in our kitchen can’t deal with actual food. The sink has now been completely blocked for almost two weeks, along with the two water fountains that share the same drain.

So not only did she throw out people’s food, but now we’re having to hike to find water for the tea kettle and coffee pots.

Someone needs to tell her to stay the hell out of the kitchen, because she’s a damn menace.

After two days of being closed due to weather, then a third due to a broken water main, the library is now open again. Only we can’t drink the water. Which OF COURSE means that the water fountains and sinks are covered with black trash bags. That’s how we roll, yo.

ET2 Renovation

ET2 Renovation

I had a meeting this morning on the second floor of the east tower (yes, I work in The Two Towers). They’re renovating, and it’s at the “utterly and completely eviscerated” stage. It looks like a giant roller rink.

And then I went into the ET2 bathroom. Yes, there are FOUR trash bags over FOUR toilets. The fifth toilet? The stall door is broken and does not latch. I swear, this is the most dysfunctional building I’ve ever worked in.

Four!  Toilets!  In!  Bags!

The 4th floor women’s restroom in the west tower is sporting trash bags over two of its sinks. They’ve been there awhile, judging by the layer of dust on top.

I think I may need to take a little tour of the women’s restrooms in the building tomorrow, to see if there are any more black trash bags being employed in a similarly unorthodox manner.

I suppose it was only a matter of time before The Bathroom Performance Artists Troupe graduated from black trash bags to manky five-gallon buckets. (One in an ongoing series.)
