Barefoot bathroom trips

Everyone remembers my post about the kitchen at work right? So you might be able to devise that both my fellow employees and our sanitation crew don't have the highest standards when it comes to things like, say, FILTH.

Yesterday I was entering the ladies room on my floor when I saw something incredibly disturbing. Let me preface this with some background. You've seen photos of the kitchen. The bathroom is no better. Actually, it has the nice odor to add to the actual visible dirt. There's always pools of water all over the counter and floor (despite our possessed automatic paper towel dispenser).

There was a lady exiting the bathroom barefoot. We're not talking socks here, I'm talking plain old naked feet. For my coworkers that read my blog, NO it was not Hula Hoop Girl. This was one of the few I considered might be normal here. We all like to take our shoes off at our desks, well at least I do. Never in a million years would I leave my office barefoot. You'd have to drag me kicking and screaming to enter the bathroom without shoes.

Now at home, I never wear shoes, I don't like em, but in a public BATHROOM???? Am I the only one that thinks this completely bizarre?

Stumble Upon Toolbar

I'm going to need you to ask this woman why, oh lord why, she was barefoot in the bathroom. There has to be an explanation.

Oh-mah-goodness; I do *not* miss working in an office with other people. It's bad enough that there's always a freak or two, but then it completely blows your mind when someone seemingly normal does something so bizarre.
Is she of child-bearing age? There's a subset going around exposing themselves to as many germs as possible before getting pregnant so they can pass along loads of antibodies to offspring.
Other than that, not only is her behavior not logical, it's completely *illogical*. Blech! lol

This woman I would say is probably mid-late fifties. Definitely past child-bearing. Though that's an interesting tidbit of info.

And yes what made it so utterly bizarre is that she wasn't one of the freaks. She honestly looks like a normal middle aged receptionist from a dental office or something. WEIRD!!!

HA!!! I was so thinking it was crazy hula hoop-talk-to-herself, everyday-black-leggings-purple-tshirt-wearing freakshow. Wow, I'm kind of mean...sad but the afore-written description is VERY accurate. You MUST tell me who the heck it was!!!

I do not know the lady so I'm a little apprehensive about asking her. I've only seen her maybe 10 times but she's clearly off her rocker. Tracy - she works over on the "other" side.
