Usually I don't take pictures when I'm in public bathroom--I think it's a good policy for everyone to follow--but when I saw this sign I couldn't resist.
You may ask, Linda, where the hell are you hanging out? Seriously! I could maybe imagine this sign in a lab or hospital or some other medical facility. But where did I find this gem?
In a CASINO!!! No kidding--I snapped that in the Aquarius Casino a couple of weeks ago when I was in Laughlin for the bike rally.
Somebody enlighten me--I find this startling. If I had to venture a guess, I'd say it's for diabetics, maybe? But if there's that many people in the general population injecting themselves with God knows what, I'd say it looks like we Americans are falling apart, no?
I'd love to know the chain of events that led to this. I picture a 4'2" Mexican cleaning lady complaining to her boss. These needles in the trash... I prick myself. And then the boss finally putting in a requisition for a syringe receptacle to Purchasing--Consuelo's bitchin' again, and since she's a legal one, she might call OSHA--and then someone approving the purchase order and a maintenance guy installing it.
I have questions. Like okay, let's say there's a real need for a syringe disposal... then why aren't we seeing these things all over? (I'm thinking the bathrooms in Walmart would be a prime location.) Where are all the rest of the needles going? Is the Aquarius onto something that the Wynn and Bellagio should get hip to?
What do you make of this?
