From time to time and it seems the older I get the more I see or hear things that cause me to say, "that's the stupidest thing I've seen/heard of. Well here's the "STUPIDEST" thing I've hear of so far. Friday when I arrived at work my supervisor says, "you're going to love this." He knows me well. "A little while ago they were delivering some "DRAIN CLEANER" (don't forget we are talking about DRAIN CLEANER), and the guy delivering it dropped the drum and spilled about ten gallons on the loading dock. I called safety and told them I was going to use the the 'big hose' and wash it down the drain. They said OK. When I went to wash it down the driver said I couldn't do that because he called his boss and his boss had called HASMAT. HASMAT says you can't wash it down the drain." I said let me get this straight. You can poor the stuff in the drain because it's DRAIN CLEANER but you can't wash it down the drain because it hazardous material. "yep! You got it right." Soooooo.. while we're waiting for HASMAT to get there the stuff is etching the concrete and aluminum plating on the loading dock an putting off TOXIC fumes because we can't wash DRAIN CLEANER down the drain. THAT'S THE STUPIDS THING I'VE EVER HEARD OF. HASMAT came out and put soda ash on it, swept it up, put it in a super tight, sealed and locked container and hauled the HAZARDOUS MATERIAL away to be disposed of PROPERLY. Our tax dollars at work! And the STUPIDEST THING I'VE EVER HEARD OF. So don't forget boys and girls. You can use drain cleaner in your drains. But if you spill it on the floor you can't wash it down the drain. If you haven't see the movie Idiocrary you need to. You need to because we're living it.
