Every so often, there is that diamond in the rough that gets you thinking and forces you to make a comment in an already long string of comments. For me, it creates blog fodder. 🙂 This is by far the best status update I’ve read in the past few days:
“someone pooped on the sales floor at work today… Reluctantly, as usual, I went to clean it up and someone had stepped in it. WHO are these people!?”

As ridiculous as the status seems, it turned out not to be a joke! Someone actually took a poop in the store, a bookstore. On top of that, note the “as usual” part of the statement. Apparently this has happened multiple times. Unbelievable, right?
