|I'm sorry Alice. Not even I |
can calm the battle that brews
between NBM and Elsie W.
But I digress.
I've mentioned before that Elsie is oblivious to the office except for the parts of it she uses every day. For example, while she walks past the coat closets every single day, she has no idea that there are coat closets in the office.
We keep the extra T.P. stored in the coat closet. Everyone in the office knows this, and I've told Elsie this at least three times.
|Wars have been started over smaller things than this.|
Until today when, I guess, Elsie decided that the active roll of TP should go on the back of the toilet tank. A fairly safe spot most of the time, but not when a completely oblivious maniac is making personal calls in there. At some point, during an especially flail worthy call, she must have knocked the roll into the toilet bowl.
|A danger zone not even Kenny Loggins could have imagined.|
Anyway, did Elsie dispose of the dripping roll?
If she had, I would not be blogging.
|Here's what's really funny: This is as close to what Elsie looks like as I can find without actually putting her picture on this blog.|
Folks, show of hands, how many of you would use any of that paper on any part of your body?
Nope, I didn't either.
Having learned that when it comes to the bathroom at work, I need to carry pretty much all my supplies on my person (because any supplies not chained down can, and do, disappear several times a day) so I had a couple tissues in my pocket to cure what ailed me.
I then went to the closet (Where I store the fresh coffee grounds as well. Everyone in the building knows it's there except Elsie who has to by now be wondering what sort of Elfin magic I had to conjure up coffee every day where there is none.) and pulled out again two rolls for the back of the tank. The wet stuff....well, I just left that out so the next person to use the bathroom could enjoy the same excitement of reaching for clean TP and touching wet TP.
Hey, Elsie, she truly recycles everything...even wet TP.
Now if only I could get her to stop throwing soda cans and plastic bottles in my trash.
