what you’ll find during locker clean out.
Yesterday was the big locker clean out. I’ve been doing this extra job for at least 5 years now. For the job, I’m responsible for assigning the lockers in the fall, and cleaning them out in the spring. At clean out time, I also change the combinations.
This is a big job, but my predecessor taught me how to make it easier. I hire about 5 students to help. And in the last 2 years, I’ve had a few help me with changing the combinations. Every year we seem to be getting more efficient. This year, I sent the last of my helpers home a mere 3 hours after we started.
Normally we just find books, papers and clothing. But this year there were a few interesting finds…
Helper #1: What should I do with this?
Me: Throw it in the trash!
He was holding a condom.
I was taking the trash out of one locker and found an empty Plan B box. If you don’t know what that is, you can ask around…
Helper #2: Is that a nut cup?!?
It’s good that I had latex gloves. I don’t know if I would have realized what I was picking up. I was just thinking about getting all of the trash taken care of instead of the contents.
Locker clean out is a true signal that it’s the end of the year. Only a few days to go! 🙂
