... we've been struck

Break out the medical masks folks, we've been contaminated.

Upon coming into the office the other day we all got a great surprise, tons of giant bottles of sanitizer. Why you ask?

BECAUSE SWINE FLU HAS HIT THE BUILDING!

Sorry for the over dramatic yelling that just happened there. So yeah, now I get to come to the office every day in hopes if dodging the pig flu. There are literally 10 bottles of sanitizer within 10 feet of my desk and posters all over saying how to protect yourself.

Seriously, these posters are ridiculous. I'll briefly summarize them.

Step 1. Wash your hands, especially after going to the bathroom.
Step 2. Sneeze or cough into a tissue instead of your hand.
Step 3. Use sanitizer.
Step 4. If you are running a fever or have the chills see a doctor immediately.
Step 5. Take your daily vitamins.

OK, that's not all of them but you have to understand where I am going with this. How many people don't know that they should do this stuff? Especially during an epidemic of the pig flu.

I will say on a sadder note that a teenager in Oklahoma died today from the virus. So even though I make light of this sickness, please get your flu shots and stay as healthy as possible.

Lol, I know the hand sanitizers have been showing everywhere on campus too! Including this gigantic bottle in the campus gym. It's funny though, because it looks like it's pretty much unused.

Yeah, the same is happening here, too. Hand sanitizer dispensers are popping up everywhere, and posters how to wash your hands properly (in 10 steps) above the sinks in public washrooms.
