Another pet peeve
Floor Strippers are of the Devil!
Whenever they decide to strip and rewax the floors on my floor, they do the WHOLE thing at once, and don't bother to tell anyone. This would be mildly annoying (because of the smell) if we all worked in offices, but because our labs are spread out between several rooms, and in most cases, the offices are in different rooms than the labs, so we use the hallways A LOT. You can imagine what a pain in the ass it is to need to go change out your buffer and get told that you can't leave the room you're in for an hour because they just put down the stripping solution.
As if. The floor guys have been shit on by us SOOOOO many times. I don't understand why they don't do it at night or on the weekend, since the same guys are there at those times, and that's when they do the other (patient) floors of the hospital.
Anyway, I booked it out the door at 9:30AM, when they started mopping and buffing. I wasn't about to stay there and get sick from the smell.
