Bad Little Mousey

So a colleague told me about an awful experience at work. 


They came into the office and had a big surprise. 


I won’t ask you to guess what it was. 


I’ll start off by giving you a hint.


It came from a mouse. 


Yep, they actually had what they called, “mouse poop” on their desk. 


Have to laugh even at the term…


But this is not what you want to have to deal with first thing in the morning, or anytime for that matter. 


What can you do though?


We share the world with other living creatures and if they want to poop on your desk–what are you really gonna do about it? 


I suggested setting some traps, but they said they want to see if it happens again. 


That’s two too many times for me.


Now though I learned to be grateful if my desk is poop-free. 😉

Mickey Isn’t Smiling On Everybody

Horror Mickey
Orlando, as you know, is home to Disney’s amusement park, one of the biggest employers in the area–70,000 people.


That’s nice you say…only Bloomberg reports that Orlando has one of the highest poverty rates in the nation @ 20%–and that’s not amusing!


Even though Disney just upped their minimum salaries to $10 an hour, they have thousands on the rolls (ride operators, bus drivers, maids, etc.) earning less than $25,000 a year (and that is similar to 40% of all the jobs in Orlando), and for that even Mickey Mouse couldn’t buy any cheese.


Funny though that Disney costs a family of 5 about $1,500 for a 4-day pass, and they just earned a profit for the quarter of $2.2 billion.


Maybe next time you go to the fun house at Disney, you’ll think for a moment that it’s really a house of horror for tens of thousands of hardworking, decent people. 


Mickey Mouse is a louse and Donald Duck is a F-unny character, indeed.  😉
