This is a plea to everyone to show some more consideration for other people. I was thinking about this at work today. I clean banks and offices in the evenings so that I can make it through college with minimal amount of debt. (My goal is to have less than 5 grand in debt when I graduate.) And I am astounded by the lack of consideration some people show for others. For example: one of my duties is to empty every trashcan every night. Since I am totally responsible to clean 5 different buildings every night (no, I don't work with a partner.) I end up emptying 80+ trash cans every fricken' evening when the rest of the world has gone home and is enjoying themselves. Now, this wouldn't be so bad if people would only put their trash in the wastebasket...however, instead they just chuck it in the general vicinity. Now I realize that work can get very hectic, especially for bank tellers and the like, but is it so much to ask that they put the trash in the can that sits right next to their feet under their desk? Or at least pick up your trash at the end of the day? It makes my job last twice as long when I have to get on my hands and knees under every single desk and pick up 80 cans' worth of trash that's scattered on the floor. I'm young and spry, but some of the people who work at my company are Hispanics in their 40s and 50s, and I feel bad for them, having to bend over and pick up trash. Everyone deserves more dignity than that. Our jobs would be much less aggrivating and more rewarding if Janie the Bank Teller just thought for a moment about the little people who come in at night to clean up after her, while she's enjoying her evening. And door handles are there for a reason. Every night I have to wipe down both sides of the glass on 8 sets of double doors, and I'm astounded at the weird places fingerprints turn up. And you wouldn't believe how much grease your hands can leave behind. I didn't until I started this job. Who opens the door by placing their open palm in the very top corner of the door? I'm short--it takes some doing to reach that high! The weirdest thing was the time I found a full-length, bare footprint one one of my doors. Another thing: driving. My job also requires a bit of driving( 20 miles an evening) and I see some wacky stuff out there...my pet peeve is the people who know their lane is closing 1/4 mile away, yet they insist on racing you and then cutting you off at the very last minute as they lose their lane. Then there's the guy who is first in line at the red light, but takes 5-8 seconds to realize and react when it finally turns green. I feel better now that I've shared my angst with someone. Goodnight.
