We bring the FAST and laughs to pharmacy.

Now I've seen it all
For about a week, there has been a problem with our staff bathroom commode. So, when the plumbers came and started their work, we assumed that they would do their rooter thing and be gone in a few hours. When 5pm came around, the plumber was still mystified as to why they couldn't clear the drain, and why he was pulling pound after pound of gravel out of the line, even though the snake thing he was running didn't hit anything solid. Then they started investigating the parking lot and discovered a wet spot in the snow. So they dug down at that spot, and found what appeared to be a sewage filled sinkhole. After pumping out this 'sink hole', it became apparent that it was actually a TUNNEL being dug, running right under the pharmacy floor. As it turned out, the ambitious little thieves had gotten right up under the slab and had started chipping away at the underside before they broke the underground sewage line and flooded their little venture. I can only imagine them down there, lying on their backs, and suddenly get a facefull of sewage and a sudden, overwhelming urge to retreat. They must have been at it for months, seeing that the ground is still frozen, and the tunnel started under the dumpster slab 150 feet away.
I wonder if anyone has been treated for e-coli in the local area?
