Le Jardin d'Acclimatation

Again, more blackberry pics, because I prefer thinking about pretty pictures rather than about how the dude in the shower stall next to me this morning actually PEED in the shower while we were all showering in for work. I kid you not, the man peed in a shower that shared the floor with all the other showers. And the drain was between my shower and his shower, so the yellow stream kept coming my way. For like five minutes. Talk about disgusting. Especially when there are actual toilets just around the corner.

OMG I can't believe you didn't even say anything! Or did you?

Wow. This post raises so many questions for me. Namely, your job allows you to live in France but requires you to take communal morning showers with your co-workers? What line of business are you in again? I'm baffled! But in a pleasantly mystified way. :)

Also confused about why all the co-workers shower together.

Weird team spirit.

But Emily, what do you say? Excuse me sir, please stop peeing? I didn't even know the guy - he was just some random French ouvrier in his 40's.

And to answer the other questions, some of my clients have very tight bio-security, so you need to take a shower and change into the provided clothes before you are allowed in the building.

Every time you discuss your job, it becomes more and more interesting.

I had been wondering how you can tell that someone pees in the shower...
Well, think positive, maybe it isn't pee, maybe it is a yellow shampoo or something.

All I can say about that shower incident is: c'est dégoûtant! I mean, think, man! This is NOT your shower at home!
