There was a great surprise awaiting me in the break room this morning. A surprise that made this gloomy, rainy day seem bright and shiny.
Our wonderful and supremely talented janitorial staff (that’s not sarcasm) scrubbed the sink until it shone. No more coffee stained stainless steel. No more tidbits of other peoples’ lunches. No more stomach-turning gunk. It was a beautiful thing. I’m not exactly sure why this made me so happy, but it did.
I suppose a sink (especially a stainless steel one) is just one of those things that should be clean.
