Swine Flu

Wet Soap Wash Rinse Dry
So it looks like Canary Wharf management have succomed to the hype, despite the international version of Swine Flu appearing to be slightly wussier than a dose of the (so called) "Man" variety, signs have materialised all over the building reminding us that we should be (gasp!) washing our hands...as if that wasn't bad enough, it then goes into great detail about exactly how we should be doing so - and I'm terribly sorry, but I don't think I would have got terribly far in life if by this stage I had somehow managed to miss the part where I learned how to work a soap dispenser and tap...and is it really necessary to wet your hands before you put on the soap? I mean, I could understand it if we were using bars, but hereabouts we have nice little dispensers that spit out a generous quantity of something that resembes pink shower gel which lathers up rather well without any additional water...

Anyway, while this was probably a small overreaction, pity the only (known) pig that lives in Afghanistan (in a zoo, believe it or not), the poor little thing, even though it's got no chance of catching or passing on the disease (there being no brothers and sisters or even distant relations in the same country to potentially get it from) it has been locked up in solitary confinement to allay public fears of infection! Sometimes I really do dispair... ;)

You bloody Londoners and your poor hygiene... ;)

This swine flu hysteria is really getting out of control. I don't think there's been any cases in Wales yet has there? I tend to switch off when they start on the news ;)

Nope, and hardly any in London either for that matter! ;)

cruise ships jobs said...

A lot of cruise lines have canceled their trips to Mexico because of that issue, the ships that are on route to Mexico stayed afloat when the announcement that it wasn't safe to be there was made. Wonder if the people had fun staying for quite a while on board.
