A Shockingly Good Turkey Sandwich . . .

18 Jan

There is a deli on the fourth floor of my office building where I occasionally dine for lunch. Despite the friendly welcome and the smiling faces of the chef and cashier, the following sign, which really is posted on the wall, shows how they truly feel about their customers:

On the third floor of the same building is a gym. You can’t beat the convenience of working out only five floors down from your desk. You also can’t beat the awkwardness of running the treadmill next to your manager. Even more awkward is the co-ed whirlpool. Whirlpools are already shady business – being emerged in a pot of bubbling water with half-naked strangers who have zombie-like looks of relaxation upon their faces is weird; sitting in my swim-suit across from my co-workers in their swim-suits is just too disturbing to think about. I most likely won’t be skimming those waters anytime soon.

    Both of those strike me as a lawsuit waiting to happen.

    Whirlpools are a cesspool of creepy crawly microscopic things, so I am glad that you are staying away.
    Didn’t you mention something about a salon in your building as well???

    Sometimes after I eat at the deli in my building, I want to electrocute myself. Hopefully the food in your deli is better!

    Oh, and I COMPLETELY agree with you on the whirlpool. *shudder*

    Maybe after you sit in the whirlpool together you can go to the doctor’s together for some community building antibiotics. Sounds like nonstop fun to me!

    Nice to be able to exercise where you work. It’s harder to make excuses about not having time.

    Although in my case, I was changing into gym clothes, and a senior manager with little modesty was changing right next to me. I was embarrased, even if she wasn’t
