The other day, I was on one of the elevators in my office building - I believe it must have been first thing in the morning (elevator rush hour, if you will) as the car was jam-packed. I steadied myself on the handrail and on the underside of said railing, my unsuspecting fingers detected a wad of gum! Ewwwwwwwwwwwww. What kind of pig would do such a thing?
If that wasn't repulsive enough, a few days later, I was walking down the hall towards my desk when, out of the corner of my eye, I noticed (smack-dab in the middle of the wall) yet another heavily masticated piece of gum! I didn't touch this one, so I guess it was slightly less offensive (to my physical self, though no less damaging to my soul), but still - gross!
Are my co-workers such heathens that they can't be bothered to utilize GARBAGE CANS!!
Perhaps they erroneously believe they're so busy & so important that they can't waste their precious time properly disposing of trash.
Either way, I have a message for the offending barbarians: If I catch you in the act, I'm going to rub your nose in it - whatever it is. Don't think I won't - it's the only way you're going to learn.
Don't say you haven't been warned...
