Your high school years may not have been the most amazing in your life. However, that doesn’t mean that you didn’t have some spills and thrills that you can apply to your real life today. Everyone grow sup and realizes certain things were actually beneficial to them, and now we can say with certainty that we’ve found five that everyone will agree on.
Slipping on A Banana Peel (Or Anything For That Matter)
Everyone, at least once, slipped and fell in front of their entire class or potentially the entire school. The embarrassment was enough to make you not want to go back to school ever again. People didn’t let you live that spill down for years, but now you can see what it has taught you. If only someone had known what was back then. In the present day, you don’t have to worry about someone with the cure for cancer slipping on a dirty floor and lose their research forever.
The Smelly Locker Room
Let’s face it, every locker room in every high school smells terrible. There’s no way around it. The place just smells awful. You either lived in that locker room for four years playing sports or you went in there once to use the bathroom and nearly suffocated. Either way, you learned an appreciation for air freshener and continued cleanliness.
Dirty Lunch Tables
Everyone sat down at a high school lunch table at least once with their glistening new shirt on and laid their arm right in something really disgusting that stained their beautiful, new shirt. It ruined your day. Actually, it might have ruined your week. Now you see why tables have to be wiped down and people who are on cleaning crews have to be so diligent.
Everyone has walked past a wet floor sign and nearly died trying not to fall down. While everyone can appreciate a clean floor, it’s best for people to not fall down while appreciating that floor. It just goes to show everyone that cleanliness cannot come before safety.
Dusty Chalk Board
One teacher has a chalkboard so dusty that everyone coughed and sneezed their way through class everyday. If only someone had been diligent enough to clean the board on a daily basis to keep kids from feeling sick.
Now, everyone realizes what a clean space can do for productivity. Keeping spaces clean is very important, and every time a space is kept its cleanest, there is no potential for embarrassment or injury.
