Water, Water Everywhere… And Nowhere To Put It

, , , , | Working | June 22, 2021

We had a series of tornados in town I didn’t even realize had happened as I was having a nice nap that day and it was on the other side of town. It was close enough that the seasonal greenhouse at the store where I used to work was destroyed. I am talking to my friend and former coworker after the fact.

Friend: “It was kind of scary but not bad. They wouldn’t let people enter or leave the store until the warnings were lifted. They gathered everyone in electronics, the department furthest away from the doors and glass. The power went out for most of the day.”

Me: “That seems sensible.”

Friend: “Yeah, they even started handing out bottles of water when the wait started taking too long.”

Me: “Oh, that’s so nice. Glad management thought of that.”

Friend: “Yeah, they thought of that, but they forgot that all the restrooms have only automatic flush toilets and those don’t work without power.”

Me: “Oh. So, maybe giving everyone extra water wasn’t the best idea.”
