Taking The Long Way To The Restroom.

This Sparked Me!

I work in a warehouse and today instead of walking from my packing station straight to the restroom, I took the long way around. This is about 3 times the distance. And I drank so much water today, that I walked to the restroom 9 times!! emoticon emoticon

I plan on doing this everyday!!

    I keep telling myself to do that and keep procratinating. Your "secret" may be just the little nudge I need to start drinking more water!

    Drinking water is good and so is walking, but I'm thinking that 9 times a day the long way around may leave you standing in the unemployment line. You might want to do your walking on your time-not while you're supposed to be working. Keep up the good efforts though. Good luck to you. emoticon emoticon

    No, my boss would not mind if I went the long way around to the bathroom 100 times a day as long as my work is done! I have the BEST BEST boss in the world, he is kind, caring, loving, understanding, a christian, wonderful, always smiles, always there if you need to talk and did I mention WONDERFUL!! The only way i would find myself on the unemployment line is if the warehouse would close and our company is STRONG!! I read at least a book a week if not 2 books. People have taken power naps. If our work is done and everything is shipped, our boss is happy and EVERYTHING is shipped each matter how pushed we are!! Our company gives us 1 vacation day a month with all holidays off with pay, pays ALL our medical insurance. I can walk the warehouse for exercise and my boss would encourage me to do so. I wish everyone had a job like mine and a WONDERFUL boss like mine!! And did I mention he is the BEST BOSS IN THE WORLD??
