Hazardous Work Conditions - Part II

Back in June I made a little post about the bad case of mold on the wall that runs right by my cube at work... Hazardous Work Conditions Well here's an update. When I came into work on Tuesday (I was in Madison for work on Monday) the entire wall was surrounded in a wall of plastic. Then today there are these men walking around in full hazard suit gear and gas masks and everything. Remember - this is all taking place like 8 feet from my desk. I am wearing no gas mask... This seem a bit weird to anyone? If you were at work.. and you saw guys in these suits and masks walking around.. but you were just sitting there working, would you think anything? I mean, we are breathing the same air - yet these guys think the air is so bad they have to wear all this gear.

Here are a few pics I took today with my phone. Check out the sweet pic I got through a hole in the plastic of the man in the hazard suit!!

This 1st pic is from my post back in June...

Ewww. My last apartment had this black film that accumulated nonstop. I would scrub it off, it would come right back. Getting Mgmt to do something was a bitch. They said it was cig smoke...nobody smoked in there, they said it was candle residue...I wasn't burning candles in there, they said it was because I was getting flowers too often...yeah, okay, they said it was just mildew...I'm sorry, are you saying mildew is much better than mold?
I finally sublet the shithole and moved. I hope my tenant doesn't develop blacklung. I hope I don't either.

Don't worry many of those teeny weenie mold spores can fit thru that little hole.

I guess you can be glad it is like eight feet from where you are sitting rather than like only a foot and a half - now that would be much worse. Especially if a trap-door or something was left open all weekend at that close range of someone's desk. Now I'm tellin you - that would be bad; let's hope we all don't end up with blacklung.

OMG are you kidding me? I think you should where one of those mouth filters just to prove a point...or you could take a few days off and tell them that it is getting to you...yeah I like that last one the best!

You need to tell somebody about that junk! Get out of there. You don't need to get sick!

The first thing I thought was, "Damn. I hope he doesn't get sick." You need to go to a doctor because I saw this CSI episode where someone died because he was breathing in mold spores. They made his bone brittle/liquid like and the was working out and BAM, he's dead.

The second thing I thought was, "Huh, that is a cool picture!"

Seriously Wez, that would freak me out. Maybe it's time for a sick/personal day.

I know of a woman and her family that have been severely tramatized due to mold inhalation.She said that once it'sin your bloodstream, that you can never get it out. She's very ill on a regular basis. This all came about from their new house they had built. The frame was complete and before the roofers were done, the contrators were putting up sheet rock. Well, it rained and soaked the insides of the walls, and they built the roof right over the tops of the walls, it never had a chance to dry out, hence 4bedrooms, 3 bath, brand new house full of spores. That sh*t will kill you man.

OMG! I had a similar experience. Mine was in base housing. We were living in these places that were built in like the 40's. They were remodeling them, but we were in the old ones. They started remodeling the ones across the street and they were all in HAZMAT gear! We were living in these houses that they felt they needed HAZMAT gear to go into and remodel? It's crazy!


Blogger RitMeyer said ... (3:49 PM, September 15, 2005) : 

Oh, my. That's hysterical. I'm just imagining people without masks working while these men work in the suites around them. Hey, you might get some workers comp out of the deal.


Blogger Dorf said ... (8:07 PM, September 15, 2005) : 

That is so damn funny... Wes sits in the part of the building where a few mold spores may actually get somebody to work over there. :-)

Now were myself and Wounds sit... we are much to important to let 100 feet of mold grow on a wall.


Blogger Steph said ... (3:04 PM, September 16, 2005) : 

Dude! That sucks! I was cracking up at the guy with the mask. You are one sneaky little fucker! haha


Blogger Bobby said ... (4:03 PM, September 17, 2005) : 

At my previous job, they would come in wearing hazmat suits and tell you that you didn't need to evacuate.

They would not answer when you asked why they had the suits on, if it was so safe.
