The boilers were fabricated in 1908 - A little less than a happy high

The boilers were fabricated in 1908
The weird thing that happened yesterday was that I noticed while I was riding in the elevator that I had several tiny glass shards embedded in my left arm. My first thought was that they came from inside of me, that something had shattered and my body was in the process of purging the toxic remnants. As fascinating an idea as this was, I realized that it probably has something to do with the fact that this building is undergoing a vanilla treatment on the first few floors as it's being prepped for conversion to, get this, luxury condos. Now I'm thinking that my allergic reaction may have something to do with that work, and with whatever is being stirred up as a result.

Even if it doesn't, I had glass shards embedded in my arm... and there was BLOOD!

If it wouldn't create too many problems later on, this calls for a visit to a medical specialist and at least two sick days. If you do foresee future annoyances, just one then.

I like the way you think.

Egad! Is there anything that job won't do to harm you?

I haven't been shived yet, though there is a story about a colleague who was held at knifepoint around the corner until she gave up the piece of birthday cake she was carrying...

That is a pretty hardcore kind of hazard - have you reported it? (whether or not they'd respond :-/)

I let our physical plant people know about it this morning. We'll see what comes of it.

You know what i'd have to say about this, right? Have you gone to a doctor to check this out? Have you got the glass removed?

I never think of these things until it's too late. I have notified out physical plant people, and she's going to follow up with the folks doing the deconstruction to see what might have caused it.

If I go into week three, I'm going to dismiss the amoxycillin theory and get a second opinion.

Yeah, I think you should totally see a doctor and take time off until the construction is complete. Medical leave, and a bonus for physical inconvenience, because this is having an impact on your life OUTSIDE the office.... :)

Like I mentioned, if I continue with the itching past this week, I will be headed to the Doc's again.

The office is affecting my life outside the office at this point.
