I work for a company that makes shampoo's, hair dye and cosmetics. And sometimes those chemicals they use go places they shouldn't. On Thursday we had a little problem, nothing big just a bit of run off that went into a pipe that it was not supposed to. Now the stuff that got out was not toxic, and in all honesty it was just soap bubbles but when the township gets invovled you know some fines will be in place.
They way I found out about this little problem goes like this:
I was sitting at my desk and starving, my diet has me at odds with myself most of the time. And today I broke down and went to BK for a couple of the hamburgers from the dollar menu. Nothing over the top just something to take off the edge. Then, as I am pulling out of the driveway I see this huge pile of I dont know what in the middle of the street. I honestly thought it was a pile of salt that some salt truck had dropped by accident. I have a shovel in the trunk and thought I would get it up when I come back, I HAD TO EAT!
And true to my word I only got Jr. Whoppers from the dollar menu, no fries, no soda, no dessert and I even went in to get it. Burned a few calories standing in line lol!
So off I went with my bag of happines back to the office and that pile of an unknown substance. I park my car then mossey on over to take a look at this stuff, but now there where 2 piles and the first one was bigger! And now it was taking on a purple hue, my first thoughts where " Oh Fuck, not again!" Because you see this had happened once before about 3 years ago, but that time it got to the little river they have here which is actually a wild life preservation......oh yeah you know someone had their ass handed to them for that one! Well since then, the company said they had put in measures to make sure that never happened again......well today we found out they didn't. All the people involved in the last soap discharge have all since left, retired, been let go or just flown the coop. So now we have a group of new people that have no idea what to do or have any knowledge of the last one. So needlessly to say it was a cluster fuck at best.
But my job only entails observation and reporting, so I am totally in the clear. But I still get a kick out of watching people that are 'in charge' being told what to do when they step out of their little pond, lol.
Here is a picture of what will come down to some serious problems in the days to come:
It has been one day since the clean up, which came down to the fire department hosing it into the drains, and no news has filtered to me about who is going on the chopping block for it. I know its coming, I dont remember what happened last time but someone did take a dive last time, and I am sure it will not be any different this time.
I will be posting soon on my other blog called 'Workout and the Pain That Follows' about what I have been doing. I started on Saturday and have only taken yesterday off. I started off at 222lbs and todays weigh in showed me at 217. I have gone up since my last weigh in at 213.5 but that is how it goes in my world. But 5 lbs lost is still better than 5 lbs gained. Shelia is totally kicking my but in this war of the buldge but that is ok, it is just more of a motivation for me to do better. And I think that is what I need, someone to challenge me, so Shelia (even though I think I keep misspelling your name) I am going for you! (not really, you are hot and all but I dont think my wife would like that or your man hahaha) I still have 3.5 months before I have to go shirtless so the game is ON
