Last One Out Is A Rotten Egg

A California call centre had to be evacuated and a seven people taken to hospital - after a bid to clear the office fridge. The stench of rotting food was so bad that firefighters had to clear the building. But the worker who cleaned the refrigerator didn't need any treatment - as she can't smell because of allergies.

FOOTNOTE: Stench warfare.

That explains it then, but no excuse! She has eyes, hasn't she?

David......when I was in my early twenties, I had a part- time job at an egg factory. I sat in a dark booth and graded eggs, sometimes in pulling the bad eggs, one would
"slip " and hit the bottom! There is NOTHING that smells worse than a busted rotten egg !

Good job she didn't feel hungry!

Egads, I can't smell either, but man I can see and that sight would put me off food for a while I'm sure.

Seriously, as I was reading this post, my dog Duncan decided to pass gas and this room smells foul, foul, foul. Some sort of twisted synchronicity!

Aw David I caught a glimpse of the title of this post and for a split second wondered how I'd managed to cause a "stink" (I have posted as Stinkerbell some places).

Anyway, luckily it was just about the work fridge. Ours is the same, you forget you've put stuff in there. There is a polite notice on ours saying that the fridge is not bionic and will not preserve food for all eternity...

Eeeewww! Reminds me of the time....never you mind; 'twas pretty ripe in there but we didn't have to evac the place. And George Carlin did a bit about that (well somewhat ).

Oh, man, I've been in that sort of an office a few times in my life. Refrigerator crammed full of rotting vegetables, months-old sandwiches, condiments from the 1980's... Ugh!
