There are strange things done in the midnight sun;
Where men go seeking oil,
Where the blackflies bite, and the tar sands ooze
Where sniffer-dogs seek drugs and booze.

But stranger still are the contracts made,
When construction crews are needed,
For their expertise and common sense,
(which is rarely ever heeded)!

But the strangest thing we’ve ever seen,
(And verbatim we have quoted),
Is this sentence in a document,
Where safety rules were noted.

“…do not urinate or defecate in the stairwells, electrical rooms or bottles” , and ” Do not wipe fecal matter on washroom walls…”

Full Stop!
Got Our Attention!

(We are either going to be working with degenerate Neanderthals, or the people we will be working for are so horrible it drives good people to insanity – or is that unsanitary!?)

Funny in a tragic sort of way.

...and funny in a lovely sort of way; Sacha the dog welcomes Jean home from his work on the Wood Innovation Design Centre (WDIC) in Prince George, BC.
