Sign of the times
Check out this snazzy sharps container from the women’s bathroom at a rest stop near Trinidad, Colorado:
Being both diabetic and a healthcare worker, I’ve seen a lot of “sharps” containers—those trash cans for syringes—over the years. We had them in the ICU, of course, when I worked at the hospital. And we have them in every treatment room at the clinic. Hell, I even have one on my office wall.
But it’s only over the last few years that I’ve noticed them cropping up in public places.
I first noticed them at Indian Casinos. In the bathrooms. I don’t know about the rest of you, but a public restroom is pretty much the only place in the world where I will not take a shot.
Then I started seeing them in restaurants. Now at rest areas.
Huh. It’s not like there’s an diabetes epidemic, or anything.
Oh. Wait. That’s right. There is a diabetes epidemic. We should really do something about that.
Like buy stock in companies that make snazzy sharp’s containers.
What was I doing in the women’s room? Well, that’s a story for another day. But it’s neither as interesting or as kinky as you’re thinking it is…
